McFarlane has signed plenty of stuff; he's just one of those guys who thinks his signature should be worth a good amount of money and I don't think too many people are keen on forking over the cash. Just recently, a statue came out with a $40 premium if you wanted it signed. He literally made an additional $12,000 that week just for signing his name 300 times. If only I could get $40 for my signed copy of Spawn #12...
Anyway, I have to admit that GAG doesn't sound familiar to me at all. That's not McFarlane-related, is it? Seems like I would know what it is (or be able to find anything about it online).
1,2,8 Alan Moore,9 1st angela, Cog, Medieval Spawn (can't be reprinted due to dispute with Gaiman), 11 Frank Miller, 18,21 both low print run.
Not necessarily worth much, but these are keys.
Actually I just checked and issue 9 as I always thought it was undervalued and apparently it has been reprinted, so the dispute must be settled. Still a key issue though.
Don't forget #10 (which he is missing). That's the Cerebus crossover written by Dave Sim. It's not really relevant to the overall Spawn story, but it's considered one of (if not the
) most important and controversial issues in the series. That sucker didn't get reprinted until 15 years later. It's not really worth much more than the average Spawn comic, but I'm certainly glad to have it.
And yes, the legal dispute between McFarlane and Gaiman has been settled. I doubt those issues will be reprinted again anytime soon, but it is legal to do so.
