I picked this up 10-15 years ago for probably $5. Even with the cover wear I think it was underpriced. This particular shop often had a lot of comicbooks they seemingly knew nothing of their value or importance.

Where am I when this kind of stuff needs to be found? 😒

In this wild climate of 9.8 love, is 50k for Crow 1 out of the question???  Would the seller be shorting themselves???

It’s possible but not anytime soon.  The Crow would have evolve into a more mainstream interest than just a cult following.  I imagine if #1 hit those highs it would be under the same type of circumstances as Moon Knight’s rise in popularity.  That’s just my opinion.

Bought a 12 long box collection of Moderns (ugh.... so much drek), but found some nice "Crow" issues mixed in.  I just submitted this #1 1st edition to CGC.

While (sadly) I don't have TMNT 1, my wife begrudgingly agreed to let me invest in a Crow 1 a couple years back.  I don't often get to tell her "I told you so", but this "one time" felt pretty good :roflmao::headbang:

Odd that Caliber doesn't go for near as much.

I have Caliber and the Crow #1-4 all slabbed, but my Crow #1 is a lowly 8.0 that I bought in 2019 for something like $150.

I'm just glad to have completed it really. Still, Caliber not being "most important" lol idk

Seems like there are way more CP 1s around than Crow 1. Plus that Tim Vigil front cover is putrid. 

Once, a guy went off on me because he overheard me saying (to someone else) the book would be worth more if the back cover was on the front instead. I didn't even say it was ugly or bad, just that the book would be worth more if the covers were flip-flopped. It wasn't a funny comic book nerd-esque rant, either. He was genuinely ticked.

I should've bought a lottery ticket. What are the odds I'd come across the one Tim Vigil fan that was out for blood and willing to go to war on that hill?
