Re: First Valiant Comic Sells for $2,300

One year later a second copy of the book sold for $3,200. Does this make the Nintendo Sneak Preview the most expensive Valiant book or is that still the Bloodshot Platinum error? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Comics-System-Sneak-Preview-RARE-9-8-CGC-1990-/284247087856?hash=item422e725af0%3Ag%3A...

Re: PDF of Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton on Unity

This interview was published in PREVIEWS March and April 1992 (in case you need a source). I could scan the original pages, but there should be no differences to the unity-in.pdf file I created way back when. Sorry about that.

Thanks guys! Unfortunately it does not ship to the US.
Send the seller a message, tell them you have a high eBay user rating (if you do). See if they will ship it.

My eBay account says I won't ship to Sweden, but I will when it's Magnus. :D

She/they obviously don't care about our tiny community. They think they can somehow make a more successful company by finding an entirely different audience, without us.
It definitely worked for Dynamite. Their versions of Solar, Magnus, and Turok are up to issue #100 by now, aren't they? :hm:

Nice work, man. This is how you do it. Nice work.
I would scan your pages into a PDF file and send them to Greg and maybe they can be archived onto the site forever. :)

hobbyDB partners with ValiantFans.com for comic database

There has always been a worry in the back of my mind - "What if I got hit by a bus?" (or some equivalent) Life insurance takes care of my immediate family, and everything I own stays behind, but what about the 25 years I spent online? Would anything I worked to build for so long survive online? Woul...

If the CGC data API records and gives access to page quality we could ask Greg to run the numbers on this. Books from 1991-1993 with page quality not WHITE and grade >= 9.8.
No, the data that I have does not include page quality.

Re: VH1 TPBs?

I was going to try to guess what company did those from memory. I could remember "National" and I wanted to say "National Something-Generic". 😁

Catch-A-Star did several signed books (mostly comics, not trades), and a few of these "aftermarket signatures" even had commercials on HSN and QVC.

Re: VH1 TPBs?

True, but the signed editions aren't Valiant products. They come from retailers/resellers who got artists/writers to sign later. The COAs mention the third-party companies.

The Diamond Previews Unity Trades (two volume) are official, but the others are not from Valiant.

Re: VH1 TPBs?

Rai Valiant Era Solar has 2, Alpha & Omega and Second Death. If you're not collecting variants, that's all. Otherwise, there's a blue X-O, blue Rai, and Harbinger also has regular (black bird) and a 2nd printing. Unity also has the two-volume Diamond Previews set. Predator vs Magnus was a Dark Horse...
