Maximum Carnage promo, arrived today. Incredibly clean, sharp corners; only a couple of spine ticks, none of which break color. Makes me happy.

Some pickups from an LCS as it was a slow week for me.

I had won ASM # (proposal) and lost #291 (acceptance) on ebay a while back as they were back-to-back auctions (same seller). So finally paired those up (NM copies).

Found NM Annual #2 sitting unbagged in a cheap bin. Looks to be VF...will try to flip it for a small profit, or hold it if it doesn't sell.

My Weapon H homage arrived today (not the dog tag "secret" variant as people are calling the Frankie's version). I'd say it's no worse than 9.6. Once again, The Comic Mint delivers! They keep getting my business.

On your weapon h, is the dog tag version undesirable? (Not very familiar with all these variants I've seen)

Honestly, other than frankies I'm not sure who sold them. I see on eBay they are being referred to as the "secret" homage variant...not sure what makes it secret.

I'm still womdering if there's 3000 copies of both the "Regular" homage and "secret" homage, or do both covers make up 3000 copies.

But from what I've seen the dog tag cover may be commanding a slightly higher value...but they're generally the same value. I think the fact there are two variants to the homage trade dress is driving up the price for both as there are completists out there that must have all three (virgin, regular trade, secret trade).

Can someone explain what “trade dress” means in regards to modern variants?

Not a "virgin" cover. Usually referenced when shop variants offer both kinds

That weapon h is hot out of the gate.. Got mine earlier in the week.

I much prefer the homage trade to the dog tag.

Rhode Island mail call! Bought most of these from the comic show where I met up wit some of the members here. The ASM 194 was a purchase from esaravo after the show. He probably sold it to me so I'd quit hassling him. Sorry Ed lol. Books have been added to the wall. It feels good to get some ASM books again.



This one was a birthday gift from Ed. Thanks again my friend. True book was also added to the wall. Next time the pizza is on me. I'll try not to be so hungover next time so I can have a beer with you.

@Studley_Dudley Very nice. Why does ASM #300 have a price tag on it?

@BrianGreensnips I bought it on ebay. Some were from submissions and others were purchased while gone.

Id love to post my latest grab, but Metropolis is on week 4 and still hasn't shipped ..ugh. I figure if I call enough times, they'll get tired of me and ship the thing.

Been eyeing this at my lcs for a few weeks now...pages are turning off-white, but the cover is in excellent shape. After a few failed attempts on eBay, I nabbed it.

Metropolis can be hit or miss with their customer service.

Just purchased off Comic Connect, understanding it will be about a month or so before I see the book.

Another one of my favorite Batman covers.
