wow $163...good pick up. Hope you get a CGC 9.8

Sometimes those gambles pay off. Nice snag John!

I was lucky enough to snag a raw copy on eBay that graded 9.8, sold here on this forum.

Also picked up a raw on amazon without seeing it that came back from Cgc 9.6

So good luck and hopefully you get 9.6 or above. I forgot about that auction and I was going to bid, glad somebody here was able to win.

Saga 3-8 First prints.
Handful of Nowhere Men 1 and 2
All cover.

Pretty happy! Shocked on the Panzerfaust and Saga's.

The book is going to last 25 issues. Due to low low sales, the writer and artist actually contemplated concluding the series sooner (see green wake), but have decided to stick it out with their labor of love.

It would be great to see this book do well in the primary market and help out creators instead of just the secondary market where it is flourishing now.
To me that about sums it up. I'd like to see the creators benefiting. For every Kirkman out there, there are thousands having to work 2nd and 3rd jobs while trying to put out great books.

I just finished reading the TP. I am hooked on this book. It is a great spin on a classic tale. If you have yet to read it, I would recommend getting the TP. You wont be disappointed.

see I was right, huh? It's not the typical "Peter Pan/Pixie Dust" stuff...it very well written and you could easily see this being a "true story"!

FWIW, PP had super low print runs for #1 and #2

Peter Panzerfaust #1 4814
Peter Panzerfaust #2 was even lower 4416

Those are very small. No wonder they're so hard to find.

Just took the plunge and picked up another PP #1 from amazon. Risky without seeing the scans like I would on eBay but I couldn't let it get away. Plus luck has been on my side. So far the two I purchased from amazon came back 9.8 and 9.6

I turned my fuel rewards from the gas station into $50 amazon gift card today. Then I came home searched amazon and found one for $199, so really it only cost $149, which is the price a 9.2 sold for this week. Hopefully the new/nm they had posted isn't too far off.

Hey Indy...I know you must've mentioned this already but where do you get print run info?

Thanks

I found another copy of #4 and #5. #4 is in great condition, but #5 has a small bend on a corner. With a mostly black background cover, it's noticeable....but man these books are tough to find.

Yeah, finding ANY of these books seems to be like finding a needle in a haystack. Congrats on your finds! My #5 is in the same condition, totally breaks color type of snag. Shame as it's my only one. FOR NOW!

Bummer, I was in a shop yesterday and he had 2,4 and 5. They were a little rough though so I passed.

He had a #2?! Wow, I just paid a pretty penny for a #2.

Holy crap, the PP#1 that I ordered off amazon just arrived at my door, been waiting all day for it. Took me about 10 minutes to get it out of package. It looks flawless and better than the last one I sent in.

This was a first time seller so guess I lucked out. I will have to compare it with the pictures I took of my 9.8 that I sold. For $150 i don't care if it comes back 9.6

If I could post pictures I would, never tried to before

Now...if I can just learn to keep my PP #1 this time.

good job one the #1...just remember it's not just the front/back cover to look at for 9.8. It's ALL the inside pages as well!
