When the comic shown below first came out in '94, I admired the cover and for whatever reason held off getting it. I went back to the store the next day to buy it, but it was sold out. I checked other stores, and they were all sold out. I put in an order for it and it was unavailable. For months I would routinely check the comic bins. Finally almost a year later I found a mint copy in the back number bins of the store where I first saw it. The interior of the book meant nothing to me, I-just-wanted-that-Adam-Hughes-cover! I'm sure it's easily available now, but I have it, and it's not for sale.
Sheesh, what we fanboys don't go through.
