Yeah, this thread is dead!

Point is you will only recognize something you've seen before.

Is he saving her or kidnapping her?

I've got tiny bell ringing but it's not more than that.

no pics, this is knowledge based (no cheating by using google, etc) if no reply within 24 hrs of this post, I'll provide the answer:

What was the 1st comic to be first released exclusively to Comic Shops? (not news stands, other stores, etc)

Gee, the ol single memory cell manged to get one right.

Now what was the first Baxter paper (and thus over priced) comic?
That one I can't recall but it was around the same time as the Dazzler.

well at first I was thrown off because you did not capitalize 'paper', thus putting emphasis on the "paper comic" part which really had me scratching my head, because I was thinking: "In the early '80s what else besides 'paper' would a comic be published on?"

I confess to having to look it up, as my only association of 'Baxter' to comics is the Baxter Building.

I know the answer now (It's not Elektra), but I won't say to let someone else chime in.

I can say That I have one of these though, The Elektra Saga. Found it used, near mint for $5 at a local shop.

Really?  Hmm.  I thought it was something else a bit earlier but I can't say for sure.  Just a feeling.  I did but the Fanfare being a Mike Golden and X-Men fan at the time.
I remember vividly being super mad they'd force the thing down our throats and bump the prices yet again.

Hint, It's a DC book

Marvel Fanfare Was not printed on Baxter

Really?  Wasn't Fanfare on some kind of special stock?  Perhaps cover stock for the interiors?  I remember the colouring being very rich the entire book like it was on Baxter.

I'm stumped K.  I wasn't a DC fan at this point in time so I'll never guess it.
