The "White Whale" Thread2410

COLLECTOR Foghorn_Sam private msg quote post Address this user
Nothing better than sentimental reasons. There are just a handful of books I can remember where and when I got them, but I can relive those memories now just as vividly as the day they happened.
Good luck finding a copy of that book in the condition you are looking for.

Kav, you might be correct, but talented artist and inkers could do those logos. I know Mike DeCarlo could do those.

Can't be hand drawn? What about this much more complicated image?

Its out there, just not something I can afford for what people generally want for it. Really don't care if its 0.5 as long as its complete and got the cover. More of a Green Lantern fan thing rather than I need a good copy thing
