@bergquist: Yes, it's real... They replaced the red background with a metallic gold for the second printing.

@bergquist:  

The 2nd print is only worth a couple of dollars. I have both the 1st and 2nd prints. For years (like 10+), I thought I had the 1st print, but then I realized that it was a 2nd printing and went out and picked up the 1st print.
 
You can use www.ComicsPriceGuide.com (free sign-up, you're just limited to the number of issues you can save, but you can look up anything), as a price reference. They even have pictures of various editions, prints, etc., so you can compare the covers.

If anyone isn't sure... the cover with the RED background is the first printing.  
 

  
 
 The 'gold' cover is the second printing... Just because it's shiny & gold, doesn't make it special.
