Horror, Indy and ‘The Wall’ Books To Try and Find
Thanks again to everyone that reads and comments. Comments are great. People who comment sometimes get free stuff (hint, hint)…..now onto the first ghosts of 2018!
Monocyte #2 Bill Sienkiewicz 1:10 Variant
Appx. Print Run: 350
Appx. NM Value: $20
The title sub-heading is ‘In the land of the blind, the one eyed is king'. So up front, this is a weird mini-series–which makes it a perfect fit for Sienkiewicz. Issues 1, 3 & 4 don't even show up on Comichron's top 300 so those incentive variants are difficult to find as well, but Sienk is a legend, making this one of his most difficult covers to locate.
La Mole Artbook 2013
Appx. Print Run: ???
Appx. NM Value: $25
Ok, so it's not ‘technically' a comic. But you have to admit, that Greg Capullo cover of Batman crouching over the Joker is amazing. I've never been to La Mole so I'm not sure exactly how many of these are available, but out of the 7 years or so that they have done this, there are only a total of 4 for sale at the moment on eBay–and this isn't one of them.
Halloween: Nightdance #3 Tim Seeley 1:50 B/W Variant
Appx. Print Run: 158
Appx. NM Value: $35
Ok, I'm going to let everyone know a little extra on this one….if you see these horror books for cover price from 2000-2010ish, you should buy them (ask Mel V). Print runs were very low and horror fans will buy them. This whole series is hard to find in general and a 1:50 variant?…all the makings of a ghost. Oh, and its got a girl in a shower and is Psycho-esque.
Grimoire #4 Darwyn Cooke Variant
Appx. Print Run: ?? (Reported 250)
Appx. NM Value: $10
I normally shy away from the smaller, obscure Indy books for this article because most of the time these titles are inherently hard to find. I included this one because of the Cooke cover and the fact that multiple large databases don't even have this book listed. Besides, it has a magic carpet and a raccoon on it–that is a classic combination.
Skye Runner #3 Jim Lee 1:10 Variant
Appx. Print Run: 816
Appx. NM Value: $10
Another book that does not show up in a lot of databases, this is a tough one to find for Jim Lee completionists. Issues #1 & #2 have a Lee incentive variant as well, and they are both difficult to find, but this one takes the cake from this short-lived series.
A Game of Thrones #7 Mike Miller 1:35 ‘Virgin' Variant
Appx. Print Run: 329
Appx. NM Value: $30
Trey K was the first person that I knew to mention these GoT variants. Some of them are truly incredible and this one is no different. Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister standing on top of The Wall is magnificent. With spin-offs to continue, fans of the show will have a long time to continue to keep the series fresh in their minds.
Red Sonja (Vol. 4) #30 Alex Ross 1:25 ‘Virgin' Variant
Appx. Print Run: 704
Appx. NM Value: $15
As always, let me know what ‘ghosts' you find! Congrats to Zack Gustafson on finding a Wonder Woman #300 $2.00 price variant!
