Grimm Fairly Tales Presents: The Jungle Book
CS Moore Exclusives
Zenescope Entertainment, April-September 2012.
There were a number of variants produced for each issue of Zenescope's re-imagining of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Four variants in particular were
produced in conjunction CS Moore Studio with ridiculously low print runs of only 25 or 30 copies:
Each of these very exclusive editions came with a signed certificate of authenticity from CS Moore Studio Ltd; the certificate for #3D is shown below:
These rare editions sold out very quickly and have seen very healthy increases in re-sale value on auction sites such as ebay; a number have been CGC graded and
these can retail for over $500!
 Most publishers don't disclose actual print run data and they may not know the exact numbers in any case due to inaccuracies of the printing process leading to overage/underage (it has also been common
practice to add 3-10% to the print run as cover against underage, spoilage and other damages). As well as distributed copies, there may be pre-press proofs (may differ from the main print run), spoilage (which
can lead to some error variants or comics being pulped), file copies, complimentary copies and other stock that is not distributed at the time. Any disclosed distribution data should be treated with caution as
this may not be totally accurate; note also limitations of the data: since around 2009, Diamond North America included most variants they distribute within its disclosed distribution data along with the standard
copies as one figure; also the data excludes distribution of the same English language copies outside North America (so, for example, UK distribution via Diamond UK is excluded). Estimates on this site are just
that and should be treated as a very rough guide only.
 Prices are just a guide and may be out-of-date so best to check other guides and realized sales from both auction sites and comic shops as well
for a more accurate measure of current value.
 Information is as accurate as possible at the time of publication but there may be some mistakes; if you note any problems with the
content of any pages please get in touch. Many thanks!
