Description

This one has been improperly stored in the past, gauging by its yellowed appearance. (See the 'as-is' secondary image below for its current patina.) I will not be restoring it. The Karza figure is (sadly) a stat, the original art for it is slightly smaller and underneath.

My first letter to a comic book publisher was printed on the inside of this cover. A cringe-worthy read, my straight-laced 17-year-old self didn't quite understand the concept of 'retconning.'

Always a pleasure to reel in a piece from the landmark 50th issue!

Great cover. And very cool that you have a personal connection to the issue. I know you aren't asking, but I think this is worthy of restoration.

I appreciate that, but I have it on good authority that it's double the usual price just by the fact it's double the square-inches. Plus, I don't believe a restoration does a thing for its value. If it were ever to have to be sold, a skilled buyer would ding it either way; for either having been restored, or by NOT being restored. I just prefer to not spend the money in that fashion when there are more pieces to buy.

This is a truly spectacular Micronauts cover! The gang's all here and the image is absolutely stunning! But what's most impressive to me is that this issue contained your fan letter. Man, how cool is that?! Huge congrats Andrew!
