Thanks for keeping the updates going.

I thought the deadline for ss was long over. Still even more the way it started out, I didnt think even that many 9.8's were possible. 

All very interesting. I wonder if itll be a regular thing, or if mcfarlane will be the only and one and done.

I think in the long term these will be decently valuable.  I sold one of my two (waited too long but pretty much broke even on it after buying it raw for way too much) and sold my Gunslinger for a decent profit.  I think that the GS and the 3rd one on the horizon will be a little more valuable since they'll be more limited as less people have the 'fever' on these now that the #'s on KS1 were higher than expected.  They're pretty low by comparison to OTHER keys and are must haves for Spawn collectors in my opinion but other than that I see them hovering around the 1K range for a while (800-1200ish).

I bet some of the new 9.8's are from pressing and have just been in queue for a while...that # should stop soon, though- and still, no green labels yet so not sure why.

I bet that there are still quite a few more 9.8s to come in through CCS. My guess is those will all be given yellow labels as long as they were submitted for pressing before cut-off since it is a CGC owned service.

WTF are you talking about ?  The 1:250 spawn variants recently have all been virgins of the regular cover.

 

 

I'm not quite sure what I was thinking actually haha

And here it is. Too bad the slab has some scuffs......

Hey! Congrats  :

Scuffs don't look bad, or I don't notice them that much... you satisfied? :wishluck: an odd or sad thing to have to ask, I know.

It does look great, nice scan :)

They are much more noticeable on the back in the black border. Similar issues on the front in some of the white cover areas.

So every copy of my LCS King Spawn #5 Fernandez cover was damaged in transit.

Bugger…

 

I’m actually surprised at how many books I’m getting now that are either dinged in the corners or have minor tears… I suspect the little corner tears are straight off the production line, but ComicsEtc are cutting the cardboard protectors too identical to the book size.. while it fits the tough bag, it gives no buffer for the auspost sorting machines… kind of defeats the effort they are going to in order to try to protect the books. (Edit: having written that, you probably didn’t even get those books from them! Lol… any excuse for a rant over here!)
