I was about to point this book out as a reason why it's not exactly a Hulk 180/181 situation. Since EW 5 is the continuation of the story that features the last page cameo, it is more analogous to Hulk 181 (except that Rai #0 was published between them). Since Rai 0 is a bit of an oddball book, covering lots of little bits of history, there might be room for EW 5 to get a lot more respect further down the road.

As someone who has collected Valiant since the beginning and who owns a copy of every book they printed, I feel that EW #5 will drop out of the running for consideration as a major Bloodshot key.  EW #4 and Rai #0 will be the Hulk 180/181 equivalent, with Rai #0 Glossy being the runaway winner.  Fortunately, I have my 9.8 of both on lockdown already :)  If the movie is good, I expect big gains.

That would be fine with me, as I have 2 9.6s and 4 9.8s, and a bunch more ungraded

I agree that EW #5 will probably stay the 3rd best of those 3, but if you could grab CGC 9.8 EW #5 for $40 they could be a better investment than CGC 9.8 Rai #0 (non-glossy) for $150.

Of course now that I've linked it, it'll get a bunch of views and end up selling (:

But seriously, I've never heard of a "white shadow" Rai #0 variant...

The seller has solid feedback...

How do they know its 1 out of 200 as well?

 

I know right? Even the cgc label says "matte" version too... it's kind of bold to say all the extra stuff from a seller with such great feedback...

Poorly-registered books are variants now? It's not even like it's far enough off that it's interesting.

Everyone loves making up numbers to support their idiocy. It's the thing to do!

It's not to support their idiocy, it's to profit from ripping someone off with lies.

I guess he thought he had a glossy copy and in his disappointment is trying to make up for it. :roflmao:

Do you happen to know what year CGC started to differentiate between the matte and glossy books on the CGC labels?  My guess is there are a good number of glossy copies sitting in older holders.

According to Comichron, that's only true 42% of the time.

As stated by seller  "I looked at over 200 RAI 0s, and only found 1. This makes it 1:200"

That Rai 0 he has is the only one I've ever looked at. They're all like that. That makes it 1:1. Common. Garbage.

i sold my second Rai 0 CGC 9.8 for $260 so $390 for the pair was a good day especially since they both were not the rare kind.  Not sure why it's so hot but it appears to have some legs since my second one sold a couple days after the huge buying spree.
