It's not listed on CBR, but there was a variant cover to Amazing Spider-Man Super Special #1 that was a swipe. Here's a link to a page showing it: http://www.greatlakesavengers.com/swipes/spider-man-01.htm#

And here's a (completed) eBay auction of the issue "in the wild": https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574961614&toolid=10001&campid=5336824214&customid=cbrf&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2Fthe-Amazing-Spider-Man-Super-Special-part-1-Scarlet-Spider-Planet-Symbiotes-9-5-%2F271660210492%3Fpt%3DUS_Comic_Books%26hash%3Ditem3f4035d93c

I feel dumb...I have seen the Scarlet Spider side of that and have looked and looked. Now that I see that is the rear of the Super Special...I feel like an idiot. At least I know what I am looking for now. Thanks!

To everyone else...keep them coming...new and old...I want a good copy of them all.

Wolverine number 18 variant cover, and Punks the comic number 4 are both covers you are missing. I used to own the GI Joeb special and chromium spiderman 1. I am kicking myself for selling them.

I have picked up the Wolverine 18 and Punks 1. On top of those, there is 2 variants to Secret Wars #1 and 2 Choo Variants to Amazing Spider-Man Vol 3 #1 (one is Australian Supanova B&W variant..not shown on ComicBookRealm).

Did you find the scatterbrain one? I need that one too.
Posted: June 30, 2015 11:40:05 pm
I did pick up the Scatterbrain. It was by far the most difficult book to find. I ended up getting a reply from a guy on eBay, that he had a NM- copy. I offered him $25 (he dug around for 2 hours for a $3 book), which he declined. We settled on $15 (he knew it was a $3 book)!

This one is borderline to me. What do y'all think?

The pose is close, but he is looking up and holding onto sword.
