I don't know if you were being snarky, but here goes:

SPECTACULAR & WEB were both printed on regular newsprint, so a doubel-sized anniversary issue with a special cover would have been $2.95.

Adjectiveless SPIDER-MAN was printed on better paper and usually cost about .50 cents more than a newsprint book, so that explains the $3.50.

AMAZING was still a newsprint book at the time but the ASM anniversary issue was bigger than the others, being the core anniversary tie-in, so it cost more for even more pages.

What's going on with the background in the FF cover?

Bully said...

Doc: THE UNIVERSE IS EXPLODING or no, wait, it was a prismatic "3-D" effect cover.

Bully said...

Myron: That is brilliant. I'm ashamed I haven't thought of it before! you, sir, rock!

And now you're also rocking the first dynamite-power No-Bull Prize! Display it with pride and honor and also a frame!

(Thanks for the suggestion!)
