    Love and Rockets #1 (Los Bros. Hernandez, 1981) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. This black-and-white pre-Fantagraphics version, limited to an edition of 800, has to be one of the hardest-to-find comics of the 1980s -- only 18 copies have been graded to date. Fortunately for the ultimate L&R fan, we have the highest-graded copy, with the ultimate page quality, right here! Gilbert Hernandez did the cover, with Gilbert and Jaime doing the stories and art inside. This is just the third copy of this extreme rarity that we have ever offered and the copy that we sold last May went for more than $2,600! While Overstreet describes this as "small size" and from June of 1982, it's actually from 1981, a year before the Fantagraphics version, and measures 8.5" x 11". Don't be shy when bidding on this exceptional book, if you want to be the proud owner! Overstreet 2015 NM- 9.2 value = $100. Fogel's 2015 Underground Price & Grading Guide NM- 9.2 value = $200. CGC census 1/16: 2 in 9.8, none higher.
