Need to swap a few books but otherwise done with phase one.

Nice! Glad you have devoted wall space to work with! That's a luxury in itself. :)

Still beautiful! I still wish I had the presence of mind to get a copy, there were a few available, but I figured in the wild was the way to go and came up short!

I love the sideways sig!  :x

Merry Christmas, my fellow McFarlane fans! Look what Santa brought me :) The one big McFarlane key I was missing. (Yes I've got ASM 298-301 etc..) I think this thread was born out of a discussion I had with Mr Fantastic about the similarities between the cover of this, Batman 423, and McFarlane's Detective Year 2 covers. This copy has travelled across the globe  and now has a loving home down under. I've been wanting it for a long time, but I waited for a solid copy at a reasonable price. If I'm honest with myself it's not a '9.8 candidate'. It's got a few small colour breaking spine ticks but I love it anyway. And the last time one came up for sale over here on eBay it had a freaking detached cover but still sold quickly.

@Comixroc considering McFarlane only did the cover of Batman423 I can really see the appeal of getting the cover only. It think this is the second printing based on the bottom left box. I would also love something signed by the Todd-father, even if it was just a napkin, so this is a cool pick up (thumbsu When it comes to my PC I just try to keep it VF- or better. The fact low grade copies with detached covers quickly sell for $150 AUD even now, says something about the popularity of this cover

Congrats on the pick up ! Nice looking copy, and yes, this thread actually started over our original discussion of those Batman McFarlane's.
