Hello, and thanks for the question.

This novel is a U.K. republication by Titan of the paperback that was originally published in the U.S. by DC Comics.

Tales of the Multiverse: Batman: Vampire by Doug Moench
About two years ago, DC ended their agreement with Titan to republish DC's paperbacks and graphic novels, often at a substantial markup. DC then struck up a deal to distribute their books solely to Diamond Book Distributors UK, eliminating Titan as a republisher in the UK. This why you can no longer find Tales of the Multiverse: Batman: Vampire in Titan's listings. The inflated value (I will take your word that you have seen it valued at £500) is a matter, then, of supply and demand. No new copies of the novel with the Titan label being supplied and demand increasing for the copies that are out there.

You can read more details about the DC Comics changes in their U.K. redistribution arrangements at the following site:
