Miramax Cover Art Gaffe on Comic Book: The Movie DVD

Just thought I'd post this info, it should hit some of the sites tomorrow. Miramax is releasing a new Mark Hamill directed movie next week called Comic Book: The Movie and after running off about 100K of the covers they discovered that they not only used the wrong picture but the photo they did use is flipped.

The back of the DVD is supposed to have a photo of the cast. Instead Buena Vista (Miramax parent) used a photo of Mark Hamill with 2 guys dressed up like Batman and Robin. The only thing is they flipped the photo so the R on Robin's chest is backwards!

They're trying to pull back as many of the covers as possible but I'm sure several thousand got out there.

Just figured if anyone collects mistake covers I'd let them know to be aware that this happened.

I already got my copy. I suppose I should seal it in Luccite now to preserve it's value.
