funny thing about this thread.  When I see someone else post one I have, I feel sad because it means mine isn't as rare as I thought.  But it's also nice to see some people collecting these, because it means the ones I have will hopefully someday have a nice market for me to sell in.

Nope, but I did have that experience for the first time last year — buying a double cover out of the 3 for a dollar box!

Ok, I was sorting through some moderns today. Take a close look at these two, the newsstand edition and the direct edition of the same book, and tell me what you think:

Two different covers. hm

yep, but after searching, I see that both covers exist in both direct and newsstand editions.

That's funny, I grabbed an ASM 509 myself today. High five @divad

Picked up a few newsies in the dollar bin at HPB today. What's interesting to me are the price stickers on the back, which would indicate that they all came from the same collection. Anyone seen these particular price stickers before, or know what retailer they came from? They don't look like B&N or BAM to me, which are the usual suspects when I find newsstands around here.

Some may balk at stickered books, but the stickers are on the back covers so they're not so obnoxious, and the books uncommon enough that I figured I couldn't go wrong for a buck.

apologies in advance if this is already documented in a thread or if a site exists, but is there a list of documented newsstand issues by title?

curious what the last newsstand issue of batgirl (vol 1 2000 to 2006) is and I couldn't find anything while googling or searching the boards.

thanks in advance

DC didn't stop newsstand distribution until just the last few years, so that title should've run to its conclusion in both versions, although a quick look for the last few issues on the Bay shows that it would probably be a challenging run to complete in newsstands (didn't see anything for 70-73). That reminds me, I have a CGC 9.4 Batgirl 12 (the Steph series) newsstand. Not sure if I have an image of it or not.
