Spawn #185 Interior Sample: Fear Itself

At the time of writing, at the end of January 2022, there were 72 gradings of the "Sketch Cover" in the CGC Census with 72 in the top grade of 9.8 (near mint / mint).

At that same time the CBCS Population report had just three recorded gradings with one in the top grade of 9.4 (near mint).

Spawn #185 Interior Sample: Deja Vu

Some websites and sellers suggest that only 100 of these were printed but, with 75 recorded gradings, this seems unlikely. Other websites note the comic as an incentive edition with a few suggesting it was a 1:25, which would suggest a larger print run. In any case these seem to be hard to get hold of and most are going for well over $1000.
