I hope you don't mind my pointing out that the comic you have marked as a UK issue is, in fact, a US produced pence variant with all the same indicia stating that it was published and printed in the US with all the US editorial and advertisements.

I don't think that this was ever reprinted in the UK but had it been then it would be as easily identified as the other reprints that you show with different titles and layouts and publisher/ printer details that would indicate that it was produced in the UK and would have had UK ads and editorial.

The collections you show are however very impressive.

Nope, it wasn't printed in the UK. And you are correct it is a true UK foreign variant. All that being said, a UK edition it still is as it wasn't meant for the US market. So simplifying it to UK is still acceptable nomenclature in my humble opinion....

@Redshade You are correct. It is technically a variant printed by Marvel. It was printed at the same time as the US edition, only with a different cover. However, since it was published for distribution in the UK, it is quite simpler to call it an UK edition.

And Define999 just beat me to it!! LOL

Just FYI - calling foreign editions of American comics "reprints" is not entirely accurate. If the printer took the entirety of the comic and just switched covers, I could see an argument for saying that. However, when that is done with a novel, the literary world calls it an "edition". When the entire comic needs to be translated - it is no longer a reprint. If that were the case, than any English language Holy Bible is a reprint. If you honestly feel that is accurate, you are in the minority and you are not using commonly accepted terminology. Regardless, calling a foreign comic a "reprint", especially one that has been translated, is erroneous. "Edition" is the term I like best, as that is what the literary world calls it.

In fact, this is from the Wikipedia article on "reprint".

So, technically, a comic from another publisher who changes the cover would be considered an edition and not a reprint.

Here is the definition of "edition" from AbeBooks' Glossary of Book Terms.

@Jesse_O

I don't really want to fall out about semantics especially as I was using the term rather loosely and in a non-technical sense.

I merely just wanted to point out the difference between a foreign reprint/edition and a variant edition.

I wanted to point out that a foreign reprint will be easily identified as such even when reprinted in English.

Post 24 above shows a lot of foreign editions of AS-M 129, there were no pence variants of this edition and the UK reprint is easily discerned as such because as stated above the titles, blurbs and layouts are all different (even had they not published it in landscape format and badly traced and moved the Punisher,(lol).

@Darkga I didn't realize that foreign editions can be graded. i wonder if CBCS will grade them once they start grading magazine size books?

Yes, both CGC and CBCS will grade foreign books with CBCS's only limitation being books that are bigger than their comic slabs. That's why I had to have CGC grade that Spanish Fantastic Four; it was larger than a CBCS slab would hold.

Wait you did the write-up for this label? I'm assuming that I was the first one to submit one of these?
Yep, I do pretty much all of the labels on the foreign books submitted to CBCS. Some of the more modern stuff is handled by Jim Noble because we notate on the back of the label if the cover that's used doesn't match the interior content and he's far more familiar with modern variants.

For the record, the Martin Luther King book is a Spanish language edition but it's not from Mexico or Spain.

And... I see all this talk about foreign books caught the attention of my good friend Define999. It's nice to see you poke your head up out of that hole you've been hiding in!
