So cool, I think it’s neat the cover color matches the label color 😀

Isn’t this #2 a 2nd print?! I don’t see it on the label

I’ve been looking to upgrade my 2 but ebay is mostly 2nd prints and almost nobody lists it that way.  Am I wrong in thinking that the 75cent in the square box is a reprint?

Pretty sure the black Spidey is 2nd print direct.

1st printings are bar code (newsstand) and the webbed Spidey (direct).

Its a 2nd print direct market edition regular font / large font for the 75 cent.

There is also a 2nd print small font variation.

First row first prints and second row second prints.

First ever submissions to CGC. Bought the pair of #1s for $50 total, so totally jazzed about the grades. No pressing. Grader's note on #155 noted a small corner crease, but thrilled with the 9.6. Submitting a #21 next and hoping for another 9.6. :wishluck:

Awesome grades.  I would like to get a nicely graded #21 as well one day.

I was thrilled with the results. My first three comics after a 30+ year collecting hiatus, and my first three books graded by CGC. 

Aiming for a 2 and 21 in 9.8, and looking to upgrade the 9.6 to a 9.8 (eventually).

Shouldn’t the cgc label say that it’s a 2nd print? I don’t see it, unless I’m missing it somehow, how could they have missed that?

It should state that it is a second print.  CGC isn't perfect and in fact on a couple of Joe books they have missed proper designations such as third printings for #21 or second printings denotation for some of the other books in the run.

There’s an CGC 8.5 on eBay right now. Seller made an offer for $155, and I’m guessing they might go even lower via OBO if there aren’t any takers.

Seems a little pricey for an 8.5 when 9.4s go for that amount. GI Joe 21 9.4 Ebay

Anyone recognize this, and more particularly, the comic in the back?  I dont see anything in the census that would resemble it, and I doubt they would grade it anyway.

Just found it, cant remember how or where I got it.

Any insight would be appreciated.

They made a lot of those comic themed figure multipacks through at least 2007 when they were doing the 25th anniversary line. I have a few, I may have to open them up and look at the comics. I wonder what the print runs are on those? Are they collectible as comics?
