I have something similar: a double cover Uncanny X-Men 180 where one cover is newsstand and the other is direct.  I'll try to dig it out and get a picture this weekend, I think I know which box it's in.

Just a heads up:  I went through roughly 20 boxes, in decreasing likelihood of having the book, and didn't find it.  I'll keep looking, but at this point I suspect it's still in my storage unit and I don't know when I'll next get out there.  I apologize for the delay.

Bought this at my local Liggetts Drug Store way way back. Was so surprised to find two covers. Had never even heard of that happening back then. Unfortunately it's got a bad newstand crease in the spine through both covers.

Re-bagging and boarding some comics tonight and came across this one.  The second cover is stapled in the middle like a centerfold instead of being directly after the outer cover.  Looking through this thread, it seems unusual for a double cover to be this way. Anyone else have this type of double cover?

I have something similar.  I have a Superman book with an entire book stapled at the centerfold.

I found this at my LCS.  The shop owner never looked inside the book and had no idea it was a double cover.  I opened it up and was like ‘WOW’.  He is a good guy though and honoured the price he had put on it... good lesson on always looking closely through books when you are buying and selling!

Off at CGC right now!
