I'm new to this aspect of collecting, and don't know much about it or where to find information.  I only stumbled on this thread by accident.  I'd appreciate any references to good sources of information about variants.

I do have a specific question, regarding Fantasy Masterpieces, vol. 2, which has the Silver Surfer reprints.  I only just recently learned that there were price-box (?) variants -- rectangles and diamonds.  It's clear browsing around eBay and other places that the diamond variants are less common than the rectangle.  But are they really that much less common?  It seems that they don't really command a premium, just a little harder to find.  Is that accurate?  Are the variants related to distribution, such as direct vs. newsstand?

And are all of the Issue #14 diamond variants 50 cents rather than 75 cents? 

Thanks for any info.

Every time I think I am done, I get sucked right back in.

$7.54

A good day bin diving

And had this store stamp on the back of Red Sonja, it looks like Berkley was one of the distribution areas.

Fabulous! Is the Invaders 19 available? Of course, the Red Sonja is great too but I’m working to complete my Invaders pv set one day.

Superb! I was fortunate to get this one at the newsstand in 1977. One day, maybe the Invaders will be a movie with these initial  bad guys in it!
