I found a couple a few weeks ago and passed .  Are they that rare?  

#9 is for sure, last issue.

No issue of Kid 'N Play is even in the same galaxy as rare. It's a Marvel series from 1992.

That doesn't mean that they're comparable to X-Force 1 or that everybody is guaranteed to find them in every box they see, but they are absolutely not rare.

Ive been looking for this book for 15+ years with no luck. There are 2 on ebay for $50 + $129 for a slab, 0 on mycomicshop, 0 at mile high, 0 at grammer cracker, 0 on Atomic Avenure and 1 on Comic Collector for $35.00  to name a few. I think its just as hard to find as Earthworm Jim.

The book is very hard to find. Its been feature from time to time on other sites of the same issue. Just because you don't actively look for something doesn't mean its not hard to find.

Yes I get the point its from 1992 and yes the print runs were higher for books. Go ahead and find me one. Prove us wrong.


You obviously know better then us that look out in the field every week.

Kid 'N Play 9 is ridiculously hard to find. I'm not entirely sure if that's because there's no demand for it, but it is very rarely offered for sale.

The marvel tie in has made some want the book. It was featured a few years back on a couple of websites as being a ghost and I agree.

I think a comp to this book is Earthworm Jim. Same kind of weird demand.

I didn't say it wasn't hard to find. I said no issues of the series were rare, in response to a specific question.

Even the least common variants and special editions Marvel put out in the 90s aren't actually rare, so if you think a regular issue from a regular series is, you're insane.

I guess we are all insane then. You keep sticking to your guns there no matter all the evidence several boardies have listed.

Love deadpool covers.  Finally found this for cover price this weekend 20200104_180634.thumb.jpg.bb15d1472865bba7205b0e88331ee888.jpg

Cover Price? :whatthe: Cool! I have a few places that sell at cover for all books, but still try to mark up the somewhat popular by a couple dollars...

Any Specific chain of place? LCS? Flee Market?

The main place that I've found is called Movie Trading Co. if that helps where you're located :foryou: 

I'm always looking for newer places if there was a certain place you went? that could possibly be nationwide? :wishluck:

The kinda good - book u can’t find in the wild and DONT WANNA find in the wild - GOOD

Man, I love all of those terrible Cannon Films flicks from the 80's, and all of that cheesy JCVD goodness. I would be all over this if I ever ran across it.

I received one of those Cyborg comics as a kid. Those were a video store giveaway. I have never seen one in the wild but i'm actually surprised how many you can find on ebay. Maybe no one wants them? I can think of a few more video store giveaways that are real ghosts. That would be a good list
