Thanks!

I do a LOT of work at http://www.comiccollectorlive.com/

CGW related, I added/cleaned up a bunch of the variants and completed all the credits and characters (most of which were pretty empty). There were numerous missing that I stumbled over at various sites.

When I go down my rabbit hole it includes getting that site up to date and spreadsheeting characters to make sure obscure ones don't get missed as I go. I've done this at CCL for CGW, current Dark Horse heroes books, Tick, Event, Nexus, Badger, and a few others. I'm currently going through every Valiant issue and updating credits and bios (in the middle of Turok now).

I don't understand what the perceived differences are for the following two sets of two. From my research there are three variants for each Week 1 book (with X getting the Press Proof as a fourth) - Diamond foil, Capital foil, color adjusted.

Arcadia Week 1 - X (foil cover, Capital City Distrobution)
Arcadia Week 1 - X (silver foil cover, Special Limited Edition *AKA Ultra-Pro Variant* exclusive to Comics Unlimited and American Distribution)

*AKA Ultra-Pro Variant* Vortex Week 1 - Division 13 (foil cover)
Vortex Week 1 - Division 13 (gold foil cover, Special Limited Edition exclusive to Comics Unlimited and American Distribution)


The below description isn't accurate. I have all three versions of X #1 in hand. The b&w red foil is a full-size comic.

X #1 (regular series) B&W cover with red foil (smaller than regular comic, larger than an ashcan)


San Diego Comic Con Comics #4 needs to be added for it's Motorhead series lead-in story


If Dark Horse Insider #20 is included, #18, 19 & 21 should too. Especially #18 as it has original design sketches and a multi-page column about CGW. I have all four issues in hand. More detail available here.


Duplicate listings below. And as I mentioned in my previous post #3 doesn't have any connection to CGW,

A Decade of Dark Horse #2 (of 4), new Ghost story
Decade of Dark Horse 2, 3


Ghost Ashcan (included with Ghost action figure) - Indicia title is Dark Horse Action Figure Comics #1 (#2 was Martha Washington Goes to War)


The Mask Strikes Back 3 shouldn't be listed. Or, if the Dark Horse Heroes logo is reason enough, so should #4-13 (while the covers had mini-series names and numbers, indicia was always Mask and continuous numbering). #10-13 (World Tour #1-4) were the only ones with any CGW connection and that was because Mask came through a portal into the CGW universe.


As mentioned above, the 1987 Mecha series should be removed from the list. It has absolutely nothing to do with CGW. The only similarities is the reused title for a differently designed mechanical suit.


X Special (Hero Illustrated?) 1, 2 - The indicia title is X/Hero Illustrated Special. #1 was bagged with Hero #13. #2 was sold on shelves a couple weeks later.


Dark Horse 20 Years (which is just a pin-up book) has a new Ghost pin-up


I worked a few of your suggestions into the first post.

Forgive the lack of fresh memory where this checklist is concerned; I made the first post some 8 years ago. Regarding the different Arcadia and Vortex variants, I remember there being some differences in the price tag/medallions? I remember there were differences and now I wish I had been more descriptive. I am going to be very careful in removing variants from the list, particularly as I was very careful to add them in the first place, mostly based on many nights sifting through covers in eBay auctions.

I might move the 1987 Mecha list into an as-of-yet uncreated apocrypha section. The character design is similar enough without the character or origin being the same that I want to include it in this list. Feel free to remove it from your own personal lists.

I think any redundancies can be attributed to adding more information to the checklist in 2012 after not having touched it in a couple of years. I think you are right but am still hesitant to withdraw anything from the list, and thus will make notes but not withdraw them just yet.

got a bunch of these free and I already had a good chunk of the variants, so I guess I'm collecting these now, as well. :P
