Is that a soft cover Iger book?  Back in the 80s I went to the Blackthorne store in San Diego and bought a hard cover copy from them.  I have never seen another hard cover...

Yes, my copy is softcover.  I also have never seen a hardcover -- I didn't know it existed.  I'll have to add that one to my want list.

I have no idea how many they made, and none of the Dave Stevens collectors on the boards a few years ago had ever heard of one.  I might have the only copy...:|

ComicLink Auction and Lady In White Collection

I haven't bid (or even browsed) ComicLink (or ComicConnect) for a few months, but yesterday I did as I had some spare time.  I'm glad I did!  I won these comics, that perfectly fit my Lady in White collection.  This is the collection of comic covers where (1) the damsel in distress is wearing a flowing white gown; (2) the cover has a gothic feel to it; and (3) the overall CGC grade for the comics in the collection is 9.0.  (As I've mentioned in the past, I might ease up on #3 as it's impossible to get many mags and GA comics in high grade for a reasonable price.  Although, these 2 comics will help the average!)

I also won this Lois and Clark photocover, signed by Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher.  I collect TV and movie sigs, and you can't beat getting autographs via the CGC SS series.

Now you've lit my collecting fires!  I'm going to have to search for this book!

One of my main focuses is Dave Stevens.  Let me show you around my comic room where I've got the collection stored.

I've got the top ranking registry (see my signature for a link).  It's the only registry set I really care about, along with my Lady Mechanika set. I keep most of those CGC books stored here in my comic room.  I store them flat in alpha order, with a couple favorite Stevens comics displayed upright.

I display a few other CGC books here on this shelf:

I also have a bunch of raw Stevens' comics, including signed books.

I have some of his art displayed on the walls:

A few years ago, I contacted the publisher of "Sirens of Cinema" to inquire about copies of v2 #13 (with the cover by Stevens).  He had a box left in his inventory, and picked through it to find the best copies.  Of those, only one was a 9.8.  Right now it's the only 9.8 in the census, and I might have the only 9.8 copy in existence unless there's one in a collector's box somewhere.

Something unique I have is this CBCS book.  It's the only non-CGC graded book in my collection (as I've converted all the PGXs and CBCS comics to CGCs via their trade-in program).  CBCS authenticates sigs, so Dave's signature here is authenticated.  You can find some others on eBays, but high grade is hard to find.

Wow, nice stuff.  My little Stevens collection pales compared to yours...(worship) But, your Cheval Noir 7 (aside from the signature) is almost as good as mine...:baiting:

Here's a screenshot of my measly Stevens collection...I'm not really a Stevens completest, and I haven't sought out a Stevens cover since I picked up that Vampirella about 15 years ago (I found most of mine in the 80s and early 90s).  I guess I'm happy with what I've got, but your stuff is amazing. :foryou:

This is such a nice copy.  It would be interesting to submit.  I don't see how this isn't at least 9.9.

Well, it might have a dirty back cover...(shrug)  lol

As for being a super Stevens collector...well, I'm not...so I'm happy with what I got.  It was fun to find those books in the late 80s and 90s, but all I want now is GA...:cloud9:
