Apparently the Fatale: Inherit the Earth TPB is rarer than we thought:

Anyone want to pony up $300 for one? :P :roll:

That 'is' a great list, Joe.

The Miracle on Broadway is one of hardest if not THE hardest DU books to find considering it was handed out at a party, it has a coloring section in it so some were probably colored in by employees kids and the print run was excruciatingly low. I have only ever seen one but I go into my comic collection and look at it every once in a while.

Years ago I was in negotiations with JG Jones to buy his own copy of the Fatale TPB Hardcover and got frustrated because he stopped haggling at $100.

I was very cheap *SQUEE*.

And foolish.

I actually went to a kabbalah center the other day trying to see if they had any in thier bookstore. I showed a couple of the guys there the "Seven" cover pics from my phone and one recognized it and mentioned his dad had one from NY or something. But they didn't have any leftovers there.

I left there with a Kabbalah dvd promo they gave me:

It really felt like I might have gotten close to potential copies....they were a bunch of young guys at the center and I explained about how it was a comic based on Superheroes/Kabbalah that were released to those centers years ago. When the one guy said his dad had one....I was like "yes! getting close!" He then asked if I was interested in the comic or Kabbalah (i said the comic....*slaps forehead* I should have said..."of course, kabbalah!, guh!") :D but then he clenched up and seem to back off on saying any more. But they smiled when they saw the pictures of the covers...seemed like they were interested in it.

Probably the highest price ever paid for a Prime #1 Gold Hologram:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200641651932?ss ... 572wt_1270" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;\

At $225, if I ever come across one in a cheap box somewhere, it's going up on eBay. I guess I'll never have a complete Ultraverse set, then. :P

(and yes, I know who the seller is! :P :P )

Epic Illustrated #9 and #15 for my Dreadstar collection, those magazines took almost 17 years to find.

It is not "Hardest Dead Universe issues for YOU to find" it is a question looking for a consensus on which DU books 'are' hard to find... you can find many available copies of Epic Illustrated #9 and #15 on Ebay right now. Try looking for the 'Miracle on Broadway' comic and you will find "Your search returned 0 items." :wink:
