I looked at this cover and it just screams "COOL !"...After a quick glance at the census (just 4 copies graded, 1 at 8.0), this has got to be one of the toughest books to find in any grade.

 

I'd love to know if anyone has a copy and let's see it !

Billy, you know you will always have first crack at this book. I hope sooner then later we both have one.

It's always been one of my favorites, and this one's been in my collection longer then any other book I currently have.

The PQ is a bit of a bummer, but there aren't a lot of these to choose from, and this one presents pretty nicely.

I love the cover to Punch 12. For some reason, I used to see it a little more frequently around 5 years ago. Doesn't show up too often now.

If you are just interested in the cool cover there was a small shoppe a while ago that made some nice limited edition prints of some cool golden age comics. They are long since out of print but you might be able to round a few of them up. Some were even signed by the artist. Will Eisner and Vince Sullivan did a couple of things. Here are some pictures of the Ricca Punch #12 cover and the cover Eisner signed plus a few others.
