I have been collecting for a long and this one has me confused.

I have Spider-Girl 1/2 with the Wizard certificate. - okay so far. Looking at the book inside the original bag - It has a hologram on lower right side of the cover that says "WIZARD" I take the comics out of the bag - the hologram is on the bag, not on the comic. What the? Is this the copy with the hologram or was there a copy where the hologram was printed on the comic itself? Thanks

I have a couple of those and I have seen quite a few more, I have never seen "wizard" printed directly on the book, only on the bag. I was a diligent Wizard #1/2 collector, I sent in every chance I got. smile

Thanks for clearing this up - I am going to update my CPG Spider-Girl 1/2 picture with the bag and cert here https://comicspriceguide.com/sales/kdscomics/spider-girl/0.5A/phyyhtx


Does this work for everyone? I really like the new wrap-around cover pictures - why not cover with hologram bag and cert? Thanks
What do you think?

This site is the only one that I know of that makes the "Hologram" distinction. The hologram on the bag came on every #1/2 book you sent for (I have a pile of around 50 of them) Like I said, I've never seen a book with the "wizard" printed directly on the book itself. I could be wrong ( I doubt it ) but I think the two listings are the same, one with the bag and one without.That would be wrong, having the bag does not make it worth $10 more. The bags are inter-changeable. I wish the picture showing the "hologram" was less cropped so you could tell if it was in a bag or not.

I have Wizard's Lady Death 1/2 and Wizard's Avengelyene 1/2 - neither have a hologram on the bag. Darkchylde 1/2 - one issue came with certificate, and another came with holo logo and certificate (holo on the bag or the book?) We need a new thread just to catalogue this craziness!!!

A good partial list is here.

The Darkchylde uissues are correctly catalogues at CPG here

Hope this add to the complete and total confusion...

At that time, Wizard was selling comic supplies.. No book ever had the Wizard holo. Just the bags. The early 1/2 didn't have holos, just the later ones.

That would be incorrect. See Darchylde 1/2 with holo on comic from 1997. Huzzah!!
