How does a double cover effect value? I found a Forever Evil number 5 with a double cover and extra interior pages. It has the complete issue, so no parts were left out so the extra could be included? Not looking to sell, just curious.

If you check eBay you'll see that there are hundreds of double cover books for sale. Some people are asking insane prices and some are asking for book value. The range is multiples of CPG value down to regular raw value. As a side note, the grading companies will grade the covers separately and then add notes about each cover.

Things that drive the price
Desirability -
Key Issue -
Age, the older the better -
Condition of both covers -

For your specific case that isn't a highly sought after book or older so a little above CPG value, $5 or $6. That is my opinion and not an official opinion on it. Still, it's always cool to own a double cover book.

I have an Incredible Hulk 330 double cover. First McFarlane work. Think that is worth any more than a normal one?

Absolutely worth more. That's a more important book from a collecting point of view.
