ASM 796-800 5-ptychs

Recommended Posts

Clayton Crain has a 5-ptych of covers that have been rendered in several ways...


The 5 different background colors versions, 796-800, variants A, I, I, E and U

The 5 different background colors virgin versions, 796-800, variants B,J, J, F, V

And white background virgin versions, 796-800, variants C, ???, A-3 & Q, ???, ???


1) Is 798/A-3 a real book, or just a duplicate of 798/Q?

2) Are there/should there be entries for 797, 799 and 800 white background virgin variants?

Need a bit of clarification...

These white background covers for 797, 799, 800 really exist? Our editorial team is having a tough time finding them via online research. If they do exist, can anyone provide cover images for them or weblinks to them?

2ndly, are they all also later 3rd printings?

Clarification - I have no proof on any of these.


However, my assumption, based on the usual practice, is the 5-ptych was intended to be released in all three forms, as three different first-print variants.


It might be that they never existed.

Still confused that with an apparent duplication between supposed issues #797/A-3 and 797/Q, that it was the /Q version that was deleted while the third printing /A was retained, despite it not being related to /A, and despite there not bein a second printing of /A.


Can anyone verify the validity of this modification that was done in response to my initial questionting?
