Quote:Completing the circle... since I was the one who suggested Red Raven post in CBG's boards to get their help directly, I've posted a link from the thread he started to this one, and I also nicked the cover from the first page of this thread and posted it there... sadly, no-one from CBG has posted any responses to date, maybe now that I've posted an illo there someone may be able to help.

Quote:There does not exist in our universe an index to CBG. There will be a remedy of sorts this year, at least as far as the magazine-sized issues go; they're sorta finite, and we're working on it. But the weeklies? Closest thing to it is John Jackson Miller's summary, which ran in issues -- umm ... Well, heck. I don't have an index that'd tell me. I usually depend on Brent, whose brain must be at least asteroid-sized, if not the size of a planet. You may note from his response that he thinks an answer might be achievable. We shall see. And I'll check with my brother, who might know, since he was keeping track of Many Marvel Matters when he was Carol Kalish's assistant.

Quote:You may know forum member Revive The Red Raven mostly from his presidency of the esteemed Red Raven Revival Society! But he's got another claim to fame as owner of one of the perhaps most rare Masterworks ever. And I say "perhaps" because we still don't know the full extent to which this Masterworks was produced, if it was an error copy (likely) or perhaps even some kind of counterfeit (unlikely), or how many such editions exist!First off, RRR tells me that he bought this edition of Avengers Masterworks Vol. 1, one of the original 27 that reprinted Avengers #1-10, but instead of a dustjacket that reproduced the cover to Avengers #1 inside the foil frame, it contained the following cover image:....which, as you can tell, ain't Avengers #1! No, it's a poorly colored version of the cover to Iron Man's first appearance in Tales of Suspense #39. A "Marvel Masterwork" to be sure, but one that wouldn't see canonization in the Masterworks library until four years after Avengers Vol. 1. In doing some research, RRR found that this oddity was mentioned in an old issue of the Comics Buyer's Guide. Inquiries to Marvel about this edition were inconclusive.So at this point, we're doing an information outreach: does anyone else have a copy of Avengers Masterworks Vol. 1 that resembles this? Does anyone remember the CBG article that may have discussed this?

Quote:All I recall is these came on reorders (not on the initial release).
Quote:Oh, I quit because I thought that the Image guys were gonna kill the industry, or at least, bring it down. Which they did. I knew that once the kids who were buying the Image crap would discover girls, they would not buy comics anymore, which is exactly what happened (in the 80's, the comic buyers used to be both kids and adults who still kept an interest).
Quote:I woke up the next day to the news that Kirby had died. I figured out that this was the end of an era (which it was) and that my timing was correct.
Quote:Anyway I don't recall who bought these MM with the variant sleeve, sorry !
