The first full appearance of VENOM!!! White pages, never pressed, but most importantly this is the very hard to find Newsstand edition in this grade. For those not familiar with the difference between Newsstand and Direct editions of comics, here's an excerpt from GoCollect from a few years back. The number of Newsstand copies in distribution slowly decline from 1980 into the early 2000s with the tipping point falling around 1985.

Comics published prior to 1985 may not have had a large disparity in the number of Newsstand vs. Direct, but after that point Newsstands became exponentially rarer. By 1995, it is estimated that less than 10% of comics printed were Newsstand copies.

Since many collectors worked with their favorite comic shop to bag and board the best copies received, most graded and collector issues (especially in 9.8 grade) tend to be direct editions. Newsstand copies tend to be referred to as reader copies since most collectors opted for direct editions. This ultimately made Newsstand copies rarer. As you can see, this is a chance to have an ultra key book in the rarest of grades, can't find many like this in existence at a 9.6.
