I knew it was a reprint and also the condition of the FF49 was kinda poor so it wasn't a big deal to me. I paid him a lot more than he expected. He was very happy with what I gave him and I was very happy with the other books I had picked up before getting these.

Some have Canadian price differences,and there's a demand for the French ones in my experience,they're a little tough.I'm actually looking for a French Chaos in Calgary.

They are one of my hoarding weaknesses.

 

I’ve got multiples of all the Canadian price books.  Never seen the French ones....

Being Quebec(I think) only,they're sort of tough.Took me a long time to find three and four-and I'm in capital city,so I can see Quebec from my back window,visit friends in Hull/Gatineau quite often.Finding them in higher grade was another challenge altogether!

Most people don't know how bad we have it.  Ottawa is comic-poor: a lot of small dealers asking big money for small books.  Gatineau/Hull is worse, all the back issues come from an overpriced Ottawa dealer.  There are probably a bunch of copies in Montreal, though.  Check with Rosaire Fontaine at the Walkley show, he's a good guy, and doesn't have the stink of a Montreal dealer on him that the others have.

I've done a lot of trade with Rosaire-is he now doing the Walkley show?It's always great to chat with him-I really do need to drop by.Going to the hotel show felt great,saw him there and that's where 95% of my money went.

Pretty sure I know the 'Montreal stink' you speak of and the overpriced Ottawa dealer lol Guy always treats me very well-but normally in the past most of what I'd be interested in was picked in Montreal,Toronto first.

Ottawa's always seemed a bit comic poor to me,even back in the eighties,nineties,finding GA,Atomic or even pre hero stuff was a huge thrill unless you went to Maple Con.

Wow Doc!  Congrats!   Condition be dammed. I love little surprises like that. There is usually one or two gems in a bunch like that. Finds like that are far and few between these days but they are still out there if you look hard enough...
