I have discovered the existence of a Dark Dominion 1 uncut and unstapled copy. It will soon exist in my residence. This has to be (relatively) far rarer than the unstapled Plasm 0.

That's pretty awesome. I was aware of the Plasm 0 but had no idea there was an unstapled Dark Dominion out there. I would definitely love to have that one over the Plasm. Congrats!

Thanks Michal! As far as I’m concerned, it’s the only uncut and unstapled Dark Dominion 1 known to exist!

Is it a "make-ready"? Most comics have one or two for pre-production double-checking, but they tend to get thrown out. :thumb:

Yeah. This is the only Defiant one I’ve seen survive other than the Plasm 0s, with this one being obviously far rarer.

That is pretty cool. Millions of copies of Superman #75, but there probably aren't many uncut make-ready copies. It was a major media event, though, so there might be a few of those.

It looks like Malibu Ultraverse made some of these types of books for Prime #1 calling them "printer's proofs".

Yes, I’ve seen a bunch of those Prime 1s. Have you seen any Valiant issues of these?

A few original 1990s Valiant printer's proofs have been seen.

Here is an old post where Sonicdan had Rai #20 for $30.

Especially "dude." And "balls." Those terms work in the tech industry.

I have a couple printers proofs for Valiant issues. One is a Mirage, and I can’t recall the other one. I have a couple VEI as well for the early issues, like the X-O one above.

I love printer proofs. Congrats on this one. I've got some myself, mainly Valiants (including a nice deal rather recently here on the boards), but also three Defiants (Plasm 0, Plasm 2 and Splatterball).

Thanks magnusr! I love them as well. I was unaware a Warriors of Plasm 2 and a Splatterball uncut proof survived. That’s so cool!
