What are your Comics Holy Grails?


#1

Recently I’ve had to re-evaluate just what my holy grails are, as I’ve been eliminating them left and right (some of which I’ve sought for years!)

now, none of my grails were particularly valuable or hard to find, but for me, they were just elusive.

It all started with Flash #92 (First Impulse), that was my #1 grail for the longest time, until a friend sent it to me for free.

so then, my grails switched to New Teen Titans #43 (First Nightwing), and Secret Wars #8 (First Black Costume Spider Man), both of which I eliminated at the Pittsburgh Comicon a week ago.

so now, the only REAL HTF issue for me, is New Teen Titans #2 (First Deathstroke), and the last few issues of Young Justice I need:

39, 50, 51, 53, 55, Graduation Day, Spyboy Crossover

Having goals is important I guess, and it keeps things exciting.

The misprint of Sandman #8 is proving to be difficult

misprints usually are.

but even moreso on popular titles.

best of luck to you.
