Two exceptionally nice copies of key early issues for Grendel, Comico Primer #2 (which is Grendel's first appearance) and Grendel #3, from the original black and white series.
I purchased these issues in 1986, and they've been carefully boarded and stored in high density mylar sleeves since. I've only removed them tonight to photograph for auction.
Both issues are signed by Matt Wagner, I believe during a tour for the first run of Mage.
The issue of Primer #2 is about as nice a grade as you're likely to find. Only the slightly appearance of being cracked open with a hairline detail along the spine, the book lays perfectly flat. Newsprint has browned slightly, but still very bright and soft pages.
Grendel #3 is a solid VF. There's a visible light line crease in the lower corner of the cover, apparent in photos. Lays perfectly flat with bright interior pages.
Both issues have tight staples and are excellent items in terms of condition and collectible importance for Grendel and Matt Wagner's work. Great opportunity to get both of these issues in one auction.
Upon payment, issues will be packaged with extremely care, shipped out boarded via Priority Mail.
