Okay, so at my LCS, just a couple days ago I noticed a Chew #1 first print, not CGC authenticated (I don't care about CGC. I'm not paying them to give their opinions on my books. I can tell if they're good enough condition for me or not) but signed by John Layman. It is only for $250 which is a steal for a Chew #1. I haven't exmained it closely but from what I could see it was in great condition. Chew is one of my favorite books and I would love to have a #1.
On the other hand, I've been looking on eBay and I found a Walking Dead 19 (first Michonne), it's got a couple creases in the spine which isn't a big deal for me. It is also not signed but Michonne is easily my favorite Walking Dead character and I would love to own this comic. It is also right around $250 so I wouldn't be spending anything different. If I were to get the Chew #1, I could maybe save up and eventually by a Walking Dead #19 but $500 for 2 comics, I already feel a little weird contemplating buying a $250 comic.
The condition of the Walking Dead 19 is not a factor in my decision (Chew #1 wll probably have 1 or 2 anyway if I'm able to get a closer look), nor is it not having a signature. I am just torn over which one to buy. I love Chew but I also love Michonne and I cannot figure out which I should buy so any opinion would be greatly appreciated.
