Does Anyone still Read Spawn?

Did anyone else pick up the Spawn 321 Barends virgin variant?  I don't usually pick up any books over $60 but I had to have this one as it is, in my opinion, one of the best Spawn covers.

I've been able to pick up 3 or 4 foreign Spawn editions (including Italian and French #174/175), multiple copies of #300 & 301 1st prints (and a 300 4th print) and the following issues over the last year: 

#77 (1st Archangel Spawn), 100 (Ashley Wood cover), 119, 220 (B/W), 221, 223, 227, 228, 231, 265 (color & B/W), 306D, 321 (Barends).

Had regular editions of #174, 175, 216, 241 but sold them to a friend as he is going for the entire run.

216 is still on my list.  Not sure I will ever pony up that much money for that book.  

Just have to hope I luck upon it in a collection.

Struggle with why it's worth more than others around it.  Not Freak's 1st appearance and any print run difference would be negligible.

It is a gorgeous cover. I have been pre-ordering 50 copies of each Spawn issue recently at a discount with my LCS to make sure I get the 1:50s and I was glad to see them use that cover as a virgin variant instead of the usual b&w sketch variant. It does not look like they are contuing with the 1:10 or 1:50 for the next couple of issues, unfortunately.

I'm actually glad they're pausing the ratios so I can recover from the 1:250s lol

Yeah, that is a gorgeous cover. Mine cost just 90% of cover price, thankfully.

I hope they do a surprise 1:50 with his GS Spawn 2 cover. :wishluck:

Working on my Spawn Keys collection, and I really want to get issue 38, but the prices seem a bit...high. I figured the print run would still be high on the title at this time, so any reason for the inflated price? Or is it an anomaly (currently only 2 9.8 copies on eBay)?

It's the first appearance of Cy-Gor, but it doesn't appear to be worth more than cover price. You can find them raw on eBay at a pretty low cost. I have no doubt though that some overly optimistic sellers with 9.8 graded copies would put up a wildly high list price.
