Great looking book! This is one of those books that just has a "dirty" look to it. Nice find!

Finally got one to keep!  Slight fade on the "S" but it doesn't bother me cause the colors everywhere else on the cover are very bright w/no Marvel chipping!

Hey guys I know this isn't totally asm related. But I was wondering does anyone know if this week spider-geddon #1 has a blank variant? I been trying to find out but haven' had any luck. If any one knows that be great.

I didn't see one on previews. They have a bunch of variants, but that one wasn't shown.

Looks like it's been sold for $20,000.  Amazing (no pun intended).

I would have no idea in the world how to assign a value to a book like this.  It's like buying a house for which there are effectively no comps.  The seller must be thrilled ... while the buyer must be really happy as well, it's hard to know how good a price you got without turning around and testing the market.  An impressive purchase nonetheless, and a surefire conversation piece!

Just wanted to pop in and say hello and I have been reading this thread all day. I am on my own quest to put together a reader set of 1-150, have a long way to go but the journey should be fun. I am back into collecting after 20 years and keeping my focus to Spidey books. Thanks for all the great info and shares!

only 37 more issues to go to finish a complete a 1 to present-day run.... unfortunately, about 10 are in that super-expensive area..  :(   (aside from variant covers tho.. while I'll pick some up here and there that are very eye-appealing, I'm kinda not digging this new variant business model)

I had to pick #700 ( and all it’s variants) as the end of my run - so #1 - 700

Can’t handle this variant *#%+ anymore either

Ya personally I only go for regular first print issues. Only time I buy a variant is usually for anniversaries issues or when ever there is a blank variant for future sketch work at cons.

Thank you adding to what I already had from my time before I am about a third of the way there! I am going for reader copies, 3-5 range.
