Is the Limited Angela Special Edition of Spawn the Comic With the Fewest Copies Printed?
Angela is a fictional character that was co-created by Neil Gaiman and Todd McFarlane for the comic book Spawn, which was written by Todd. She first appeared in Spawn #9, which was published in 1993, and went on to star in her own series later on. In addition to being an angel and a heavenly bounty hunter, she was the focus of a court dispute between McFarlane and Gaiman over the character’s rights, which Gaiman ultimately prevailed in.
Gaiman was awarded ownership of the character. Later on, Gaiman transferred ownership of the character to Marvel Comics. She debuted in the Marvel Universe in the comic book series Age of Ultron (2013), and her backstory was fleshed out in the 2014 storyline Original Sin, in which it was revealed that she was Thor’s long-lost sister.
Gaiman later sold the rights to the character to Marvel Comics. She was also in an on-again, off-again romance with Sera, an Anchorite wingless angel who was Marvel’s first trans woman character. She was made a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and their relationship went back and forth. Since Angela went to Marvel, there has been speculation that she would appear in an upcoming Thor or Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
This has kept collectors and speculators active with some of Angela’s important issues, which has kept collectors and speculators busy with Angela’s key issues. This includes the Angela Special Edition in a 9.8 CGC slab, which is now up for sale at Heritage Auctions and is scheduled to go under the hammer today.
An exclusive retailer reward comic book, retailers were eligible to receive a copy of the book if they ordered 25 copies of Spawn #32, making this possibly the comic with the smallest print run of any Spawn comic. Angela disguises herself as a human woman in distress so that she can have a conversation with Al Simmons in the comic book written by Beau Smith, Brad Corby, Chance Wolf, and Jason Gorder.
Angela does this because she wants to speak to Al Simmons. She tells him a narrative about how she fought a Pirate Spawn named Cut Throat a very long time ago, and then she gives Al one of her bracelets before she leaves. Since there have been a total of 97 bids placed on this item, there is perhaps more space for the price to increase. The last time I saw one of these at Heritage, it was sold for $128.
