What I mean is what is the most expensive public domain comic that we do yet have on the site?

I think it would have been Green Giant but not any more  ;D I much prefer concentrating on what we do not have rather than on fiche replacement. I think the most expensive books have fiche here already. Not overly expensive, but too much for me, would be Mad Hatter #1 a very obscure gem.

It was Phantom Lady 17 but now I'm not sure.
Paper versions of the early Planet, etc FH books would be nice.
The list of the all-time expensive here - http://itsalljustcomics.com/all-time-record-comic-book-sales/
has NONE that are public domain so that doesn't help.

If a group of us wanted to go together Mad Hatter 1 can be had for a mere $154. I would contribute $20

What would be the most sought after fiche replacements?

Some of those fiche are really hard to read.

Personally I'd love to see a complete run of Prize's FRANKENSTEIN title and the Centaur line.

5.5 more contributer and we can get it. I could scan it then put it back on ebay and divide the results. Could make our money back, loose a little or eve make money.

After scanning and putting back on Ebay for resale...Take the proceeds and hold until the next prize shows up and buy it. Further contrubutions from members here might be necessary, but the process is a good idea.

i have often felt that a buying branch to this site or separate but for this sites enhancement, should be formed.
I would certainly become an active member of that type of group and would contribute a regular monthly amount to help.

Getting the difficult comics would be well worth it.,,,Maybe there are others here who agree and would also help with time, talents, and finances.

P.S.-Contributions directly to this site are always nice as well.

OK gang let us make it real. We have $40 pledged and need $110 more to get Mad Hatter 1. I think everyone here would trust me to get then resale the book for the project. I just spent over $200 in the last couple months just to get books to scan. So it I were in it to try and scam I would be doing a very poor job. So can we get some more to contribute to the cause? This may not be the most wanted book, but it is not the most expensive either.

I'd pledge $50, and if it happens, then , do as talia374 sugests, and take the proceeds and hold until the next prize shows up and buy it.
