This one has been unusually tough for me to locate. You'd think an anniversary would be super-easy, but that's not been my experience.

actually, that doesn't surprise me as they flew off the newsstand (and the newsstand doesn't order any more of any given issue.)

Was Marvel and DC purposely raping the Canadian market...? Those prices have never seemed in line with then-current exchange rates.

Wasn't this the days of the 1.6 exchange rate?   

I don't know....I don't think I've ever seen a $1US to $1.60 Can exchange rate ever...you?

Around 2000-2002 I remember a canadian art supply company was doing a $1 for $2 Canadian deal. Their canvases were u.s. prices, but Canadian dollars. I was really tempted to load up on supplies because I wanted to paint again, but never pulled the trigger. And shipping was soooo much cheaper then. I think if I spent a few hundred it was free.
