A couple of years ago this issue was very easy to land in high grade. I could have found one at a convention or on Ebay for $20 or so. That would have been for a very fine to near mint copy. Now, for some damned reason, the book is off the rails. A year ago I would barely be outbid for a high grade copy in the $21 range or so. Now it's going for close to $100.
So, I had to settle for this issue, which probably grades out around very good plus. I can't comment on the story because, as I said, I'm waiting to read the arcs.
