  • 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).

  • 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.
