Sorry to go off topic, and I asked in the darkhawk thread already, but does anyone know if there are any Australian darkhawk comics?

Not at all @revat, glad of the interest!

Amazing Spider-Man appeared with single AUS prices between Nov 1990 and Nov 1996 - Darkhawk 1-50 exists between those dates so it's a possibility. There used to be a great Australian Comic Shop website that had an Australian Printings Section and that had loads of titles as I recall. Alas, I can't find the site now - it must have gone out of business or something - so there are very few sources of info on these. It's why I posted the ASM details, to help others in the hunt.

A quick check of Ebay Australia shows no copies of Darkhawk with single AUS prices available or sold (you need to look for newsstand copies). That doesn't mean they don't exist, but it doesn't look hopeful. Maybe the title was not considered big enough to warrant printing / shipping over?

Good luck if you decide to keep digging - let us know if it turns anything up (thumbsu

 

If Avengers West Coast got printed, could there be hope for Darkhawk? hm

They are under appreciated like pence copy, but I think people are starting to notes them. A New Mutant #98 CGC 6.5 AUS variant went for $1800.00. http://www.ebay.com/itm/322617180761?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649 :headbang:

Crikey. That's an impressive price. I wish I'd kept my ASM 361 now.

Cool. That September 96 X-Men is a late one - one of the last few months before the AUS single priced issues stopped. I found the later copies of ASM really difficult to find. It took me years to build the ASM run. I would imagine it would take forever to try and find every AUS issue for every title. A Herculean task that would be....
