    Having a hard time believing this is a 9.8

    Reholder would result in the same grade. I'm gonna guess with all the signatures this book was not signed all at once? It probably started out life as a blue label 9.8 but has since been handled and signed, handled and signed and that has resulted in slight wear. Maybe it was a wall book for a spell, and faded just a little from display?

    Cherry Mini

    The other guy that might have this stuff is Jim Pitts. He's on Facebook and used to be (almost) partners with Fogel back in the day. I think Pitts ran Cherry's fan club too. If you don't have his contact, PM me and when I'm on the full computer I can share it.

    The Unofficial Underground Comix thread...

    Jim Pitts got some of the Donahue stock (I had heard)

    Cherry Mini

    @icefires - send an email to Dan Fogel through the Hippy Comix website. If he doesn't have them, I'd bet he could source some.

    Spawn #9 newsstand with manufacturing error

    RE 156 As a general rule Spawn's print run drops significantly after milestone issues with multiple variant covers. Estimated presales at 27k copies. And 156 has a black cover. Spine ticks like CRAZY on this issue! It's almost unreal - copies with 8-12 spine ticks consistently. I watched eBay for a few years trying to source a 9.4 or better copy for my collection before finding one locally in a new-to-market collection.

    Spawn #9 newsstand with manufacturing error

    FWIW... +1 I've handled a lot of raw Spawns in my collecting days and I haven't seen this particular example. But... I also collect underground comix where we see odd ball manufacturing errors. I cannot discount RMA or LB when they say it was probably some leftover guts to which a newsie cover was attached. But that's exactly how these errors happen! And... Don't sweat too much that you set the market. It's an excellent example of a first appearance character with a fair amount of history to her (what with Gaiman suing McFarlane). And now we will be on the lookout for another one!
