This may be one of those things that is so rare that it has no value. So far, this is the only copy of this I have seen or heard of. This comic has three stories. "Torch vs Plantman"; "Search for Shanng"; and "Shoemaker's Strange Assistants". In the normal copy, the stories are placed in the book in that order. In this copy, the Shanng story is inserted first, then the Shoemaker story, with the Torch story last. Basically, the wraps were assembled in the wrong order at the bindery. Normally, that would totally screw up the readability of the book but, in this case, since the Torch story takes up exactly half of the comic, it did not. You can read this comic and never know it was out of order. That means there could be plenty of them out there, just no one knows it. Only reason I caught it, is that I am a comic person so, when I opened the book and saw that the first page was an ad (which is never the case), I thought it was missing pages. Took me a while to figure it out. I checked the staples with a magnifier and they appear to be original, so does not seem the comic was altered later. (Why would someone do that anyway?)
I posted the cover, the first page inside the cover followed by an image of a normal copy and the last page, also followed by an image of a normal copy. Any info on this would be appreciated.
I have all of the pages of this comic scanned with the normal pages next to them on my FF website if you want to look deeper.
