These just walked into my shop, hoping it's a First print (anyone please help identify). Also Sandman 1-5 etc.

that is a link to the 2nd print, look at the last pick in the listing, the 2nd print does say 2nd print about where your thumb is. SO since yours doesn't, I'd assume it IS 1st print :foryou: @cujobyte

well I thought there was only one print..... @oakman29

I said only one print of Caliber Presents #1 (1st Crow) Not copies of The Crow #1. I believe there were three prints of the Crow #1. @ADAMANTIUM

I picked up a really high grade run recently. Sent in just the #1.

Just checked and got a 9.8 from CGC.:tink:

Now I need to send in the others.

Man, that would be a super great surprise!  Must have brightened your day.

I got this original sketch many years ago. On the back James wrote a letter  about the origins about the Crow. C092E512-FDAA-4974-A67F-418AF661805A.thumb.jpeg.54e4862863b098d7046821296016409f.jpegECB4449C-BB14-4A0B-92C8-D0B3BF3AEE98.thumb.jpeg.345119c9360740b593434fee65da51d2.jpeg6BCCA71F-26CD-47A6-831A-1441C0B235AF.thumb.jpeg.c4f31ae6fc276c9afc0faa715312a27f.jpeg

And then there was none.

The Crow Reborn star Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy have reportedly both dropped out of the project, which was in development over at Davis Films. Word has also been circling that Sony could be planning to drop out as worldwide distributor of The Crow reboot as well.

 

According to Deadline, creative and financial differences with Davis Films head Samuel Hadida are at the center of the trouble with the production. Apparently, Hadida and Sony could never officially close a deal, after Sony had already announced The Crow for release on October 11, 2019.

 

This is the second time director Corin Hardy has dropped out of The Crow; he was signed to direct the film for Relativity Media a few years back, but when the studio hit financial troubles, the project fell apart. Jason Momoa joining the The Crow reboot gave the project a creative shot in the arm, and Hardy was convinced to return. The project left Relativity and landed at Sony -- or should we now say almost landed at Sony.

So, does that mean that the book might be going back down in price?  I'd like to add a better grade to my collection if the prices start to drop.

Thank you!  It was graded in 06.  Did CGC consider pressing restoration back then?  Maybe it will press out to a higher grade.  I will need to take a look once I get it.

I'm not really a fan of pressing,  but I would be careful pressing this book.

The paper stock is quite sensitive,  especially with the black cover.

Personally I would be happy with the book as is, 9.8s aren't plentiful for a reason.
