    Venom: Lethal Protector #1 Black Cover/Printing Error Variant (Marvel, 1993) CGC VF/NM 9.0 White pages. This issue was supposed to have a red foil cover background, but a few copies were printed with a black background! Overstreet notes that 146 copies have been certified by CGC to date, and since counterfeits of this book do exist, a CGC-graded copy is important. This is just the third black cover variant that we have ever offered and the first we have seen in three years. Currently #3 on Overstreet's Top 20 Modern Age Comics list. Overstreet 2020 VF/NM 9.0 value = $324; NM- 9.2 value = $500. CGC census 4/21: 13 in 9.0, 155 higher.
