Not sure of your reason for the comment. Red #2 has not been an easy one to find as mentioned by Baslug previously. One just popped up on ebay for $400 but pictures offer no idea of condition. Red #2, Yellow #3, Black #3, all seem hard to acquire out of the bunch.

Better, but still lacking. I remember seeing posts on yellow 3 but cannot remember where. I don't recall any on red 2

A bit off topic as its not a true ashcan, but has anyone found confirmed information on Maxx #2 mini comic Platinum edition? I've read that there were 15 made, also that there were 25 made. I have no idea if either of those are true.

It's not true.

I bought one of the 9.8 slabs (and should have bought more) and CGC "downgraded" it to 9.6 after I got it signed.

meh

It's about an 8.5-9.0.

There is only one cover OA of his I want, and I very much doubt it will be for sale while he lives

There are several covers in his original run that I would love to get but they will probably never be made available. I was fortunate enough to get three paintings he did in the 90’s right after the original run that went unpublished until he re-released the series.

I was browsing through the Maxx sets on the registry and noticed at the bottom of the list that Wizard Presents: The Maxx 1/2 is there. I am by no means an expert, but aren't all 4 books in that category already listed as Maxx 1/2?

Is this a new book?

lol so you're Dumpling? CGC has its little quirks. They don't differentiate direct and newsstand from some titles, but do it for others.

Take this for example. Tick #2 had a die cut cover. Legend has it around 200 copies went through production without being cut because they had forgot or the die wasnt set, or whatever the case may be. CGC noted this as an "error" and states it on the label. How this is any different is beyond me. Is it because it's been documented that the Tick was a error and they had a rough estimate of how many issues managed to slip past? Since this has shown up, isnt it possible that it too has a story? Seems like a typical printing error to me, for a value of "typical". Looks like someone forgot to place the header plate. Doesnt look intentional, and there are no other noticable defects. This isnt like the red and blue tests prints, however, since we weren't there, this is one of those things you can only theorize. 

Now for personal questions. Were you the one that showed this as raw, and did you find any discrepancies between a regular 1/2 and this one? Something in the indica or perhaps a mistake coloured page? I imagine CGC would have noted, but now we know they are flawed in putting this book in it's own category and not noting the "error" if you will.

It's a neat conversation piece to be sure
