Hey there, I hope this does not come across as a rude question...

As I have been slowly picking up back issues of Jack Staff, I have noticed that issue #6 brings in a hefty price as compared to the other issues. Is there some special event that may have taken place in this issue?

I've read the original Dancing Elephant run, as well as Weird World. Though only issues 1 & 9 of the original Image run. So, just wondering what may cause #6 to bring in the price more so than the others?

Thank you much!

No reason that I can think of. Wasn't a huge print run, but no more or less than other issues of Jack Staff so I'd expect prices to be comparable.

I took a look.

All the issues of the "Weird World of Jack Staff" are the same price: $3.50US. So don't know what you mean by #6 being higher.

And I looked at the previous Image Jack Staff series, and they were $2.95 at first, then soon $3.50, which they were for the whole rest of the series.

I assume Callmegreg is talking about back issue/ebay prices rather than the actual cover price. I think the cover price went up to $3.50 around issue 5 of Jack Staff, but there's no real reason that issue 6 should be more scarce (and therefore command a higher back issue price) than any other issue.

Yes indeed, back issue pricing is what I am asking about. Thank you Paul & emb for your input. I don't know what reasons certain retailers have for pricing the way they do, but there you have it.

I have since located an issue #6 priced more so in the range of the other issues.

Thanks again for the input!
