35 Cent Variant Comics Part 2


When it comes to 35 cent variant comics that happen to be key issues, don't expect too many major ones out of the bunch. Most will be extremely minor keys, and most will be common issues.

The limited areas of test market pricing do make many of these price variant comics low in numbers if that's your bag and you like gobbling up comics that are more rare. Alright, this is Part 2 to this 35 cent variant comic series, and if you missed Part 1, that link will bring you back.

Let's do it to it, and hopefully you may have a few of these gems in your collection and not know it.

I have to admit that the only 35 cent variant comic I'd consider getting in Part 2 of this series is the Howard the Duck #13 and the first full KISS story in comics, and that would purely be for KISS. Not so much for Howard the Duck.

Still, these aren't exactly easy finds online as you've noticed from this list and the lack of actual links pointing to a copy or copies. As I pointed out in Part 1, this series was done more so you can check your collections and see if you have 'em, so if you do have a 35 cent variant copy or more, you don't sell it as if it were a regular priced copy.

If you're a rare, low print or low distribution hunter, you can use this list for the hunt as well. You'd be surprised at what people get rid of and not know what they have in terms of comic goodness.

Although not 35 cent variants, I did recently acquire a lot of X-Factors #1-23 & #25 for only $34. Yes, the lot came with #5 & 6 - 1st appearances of Apocalypse - which I flipped for $49 for only those two.

The seller didn't even bother noting the keys that pertain to the upcoming X-Men movie in the title or the description of the eBay listing. He just put "lot contains #25". Auction went completely under the radar, because the dude didn't know what he had. Either that or he was just flat out lazy.

So, yeah, you can find all sorts of comics where sellers have no clue to what they have whether it would be Newsstand Editions or price variant comics or whatever. Will just take more of a hunt and some luck, but if you can catch a seller slipping, it just may be well worth it.

Part 3 to this beast is coming soon.
