Its a beater, but I could pass up the rarity for $1.

The (unnumbered) #1 (Wizard World giveaway) is by far the harder of these two books (this was a GamePro magazine giveaway), but neither are exactly frequently encountered. And wow, the eBay asking prices...

Actually any of them are really rare. I only seen copies of 1 and 2 of Sly Cooper and thats like 2 copies of each
in over 15 years of looking. There is also an Animation magazine that is really hard to find as well. 
Never seen the Wizard world or Animation magazine yet.

Not easy to find. Found the JL digging in $1 longboxes at a con early on then went back at closing time for a more comprehensive search and found the Firestorm. Amazed it was still there after all those hungry diggers!

Bill & Ted's Excellent Comic Book goes to 12, but the last three are all pretty elusive. As a bonus, nice newsstand printings. I don't think they're much rarer than the DM copies on this one, but they're definitely tough in presentable condition.

Fun fact. Bill & Ted have been published as comics by four different major publishers: DC (1989 Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure one-shot), Marvel (1991 Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey one-shot, Bill & Ted's Excellent Comic Book 12-issue series), Boom (2016 Bill and Ted Go to Hell 4-issue mini), and Dark Horse (2020 Bill & Ted Are Doomed 4-issue mini).

My brother found these last night at my parents. Apparently my dad
picked these up in a yard sale years ago.

Incredible.  I"m so jealous.  This book prices keep on increasing.  I disagreed with the reviews; the show freaking rocks.

Having a dad who picks up comics at the garage sales is the best.

Found this one last week. Only 2nd copy I have ever found. Really tough find.
2 versions exist as well.

Interesting as I have all the Spawn issues in the 70's except this #77.  Thought I could get it anytime..Looks like the hunt is on.

Its very difficult to find just the normal issue. The newsstand like I said I have only seen twice. Funny thing it was in the same
area about 2 weeks apart.

This one surprised me as well. My Dad bought this at a yard sale years
ago in a pile comics with some DC newsstands.

Very difficult issue to find from the TNMT character Ninjara.  I am TNMT dumb, but
I knew the character and knew the issue was really hard to find never thought I 
would find one.
