Valiant Newsstand Sales set completed!

Post by sonicdan »

I finished completing a set of known Valiant Newsstand Sales editions (not counting Magic the Gathering or other Acclaim Imprints).
I scanned in every cover and posted them on my site here:
https://sonicdan.com/reviews/pages/newsstandvaliant.htm
Thanks to all the board members who have helped compile the list, over the years, and to anyone who has ever bought, sold, or traded with me!

How much more rare are newsstand variants vs direct market?

Man, hard to even say what the ratio would be. Newsstands are likely considerably rarer than the direct versions. It took years of back issue bin diving along with buying/trading with board members to find them all.

Congrats! Glad someone was able to assemble a complete set. It was fun doing swaps here on the boards years ago.
