I've never read it, I remember it was kind of a big deal at the time since Mark Hamill was writing it.

Honestly, that was an attraction for me as well. Just haven't got to them. Sat them in the collection and kind of forgot about them....

Not hard to find at all but you’re right, it’s a great cover.

I used to pick the platinums out of dollar bins all of the time. I assume people just weren't paying attention. I don't think it's hard to find, but it's definitely a great Biz cover and the platinum looks gorgeous on it!

Id love a Bisley alien commission

What a great thread! I had a high school buddy introduce the Aliens series to me in the late 80s. Between that and my discovery of Anime - he changed my life.

Here's a series that I remember seeing on the stands back in the day. But I didn't pick them all up until fairly recently.

Once Art Adams started illustrating Godzilla - forget about it! I was hooked!

Which reminds me - one of the great contributions of DHC was retaining Adams to churn out so much beautiful work over the years. Otherwise, he would've just been doing the same characters for the Big 2, year after year.

Very nice!  I wasn’t a “superhero” kid, Dark Horse changed the game for geeks like me when it came to comics.

Nice comics! I happen to only have two Godzillas, and they are the bottom ones.

Speaking of Art Adams...I just found this gorgeous copy of Animal Confidential and decided to rebag it. And as I was removing it from the bag, of the worse possible thing happens, which never happens because I'm so careful. The tape snagged the cover and a piece ripped off.

Aaaarrghhh!!

Oh, sorry that happened to you.  You will likely buy a replacement, so until then I would just keep & read the book, and then give it to a young collector or a charity.
