Seriously? The last 10 issues (146-155) were printed in limited quantities. Maybe #145 as well

At Motor City Con this past weekend, the cheapest I saw for one was $50.

That's just weird, I have every issue of the comic and those last ones were no problem to get. I had no idea I was sitting on a gold mine (although I will never sell, I'm making arrangements for them to be cremated with me and scattered over Hasbro Headquarters)

They may have been easy to get back in '94 but as the series was ending with limited readership the issues weren't printed in huge numbers so those who are now looking to complete their runs are having to pay a lot for them.

unless you come accross someone who has no idea what people are paying for those later issues and sells them for $1 a piece (that's how I found my 155 smile.gif

Just crazy...I thought I was the only one who was buying them back in '94...the only Joe collector in my town anyway! I always thought the Joe comics weren't worth the paper they were printed on except to me...to me they have always been a favorite part of my childhood and therefore are absolutely priceless!

155 is a toughy although if you know the right people you can snag one up.

Issue 155...

It's been expensive since about 1997 when GI Joe started to make its comeback...

I was lucky enough to get one off the rack in 1994. I got it to pay tribute to the title since it was ending...

Damn, I am so glad I did.

Keep 1 and sell the rest man, the price has pretty much topped out, but the depand is high right now..

At Joelanta someone was getting his issue 155 signed by Larry Hama. I commented on how valuable it was, and Larry said he had a whole box of those that he used to give away to people. It was one of those, "if I knew then what I know now" things. He had a gold mine there and didn't even know it!
