I do believe that the people who are going for the original are doing so for the sheer collectibility of it. Those people will definitely purchase the reissue too! I think that is a wonderful compliment, so don't be embarrassed!
I'm taking bets, DBDA number one in November, with John Dies at the End being #2, and Plague of the Dead being #3, with Dying to Live at #4 in the US of course! I'd like to see a top ten list just for comparisons!
