What's the most expensive cover price on a Canadian edition?  The baxter paper special editions are up there at $2.25, but this is the highest one I own.  Anything higher?

This one popped in my head today so grabbed a pic. Pretty sure I have a few more too. They'll come to me.

Hello everyone! I've been beating my head against the wall trying to find some pretty scarce Canadian Price editions of a few Doom Patrol (1987) books, specifically 10, 12 and Annual 1. Anybody have a lead, or want to work out a deal? 

Doom Patrol 12 is the only Issue I haven't found a picture of yet from that run - so it is very scarce -  Doom Patrol Annual 1 is too late for a Canadian newsstand variant - the picture below shows the newsstand edition - with both US and Canadian pricing

DP#12 CPV falls into Zatanna Special #1 territory for me, I've never laid eyes on it so not convinced it exists.

The following Specials from the period don't exist as Newsstand editions as far as I know

Angel Love Special 1
Atari Force Special 1
'Mazing Man Special 1
'Mazing Man Special 2
Sword of the Atom Special 3
Talos of the Wilderness Sea 1
Zatanna Special 1

Thanks David! I had confirmed with Doug Sulipa that he didn't think the Annual existed (it is listed on some sites) but very good to hear someone else reiterate that. 

By an insane coincidence I happened to find a copy of the Canadian Variant for #12 IN A BOX OF COMICS I ALREADY HAD not a day after posting this request. I'll put a picture up when I get home from work!

The Zatanna exists as well. I have owned it in the past.

If there is a Canadian newsstand of the Zatanna Special then where are all of the US newsstand copies which should be easier to find?- I have never seen one - does anybody have a picture of one they can post?

Here is an image I found online with a quick google search for Zatanna Special 1987 newsstand https://rarecomics.wordpress.com/2018/04/11/three-variants-that-surprised-me/zatanna-special-newsstand/

Thanks Kimik - that is new to me - sales must have been terrible for it to be as scarce as it is. I have not been back to Rare comics since the initial launch of the canadian price guide so missed that article. I guess I'll have to put some of those other specials back on the research list now -

Pretty Sure the Last Days of the JSA had a 3.50 cover

 

Action #600 as well.

Was the Oz Wonderland War #1-3 ever in newsstand format? I want to say no, but there's a tiny voice arguing with me...

No, not to my knowledge, but would be happy to be wrong!
