This one is an odd one. We talked about Unnatural the other day. This is a more mature title than we usually spotlight. This is the story of Leslie, who is a simple pig girl. She loves sushi, she’s stuck with a job she hates, and she lives under a brutal totalitarian government-one that punishes transgressors for anything deemed ‘unnatural.’ The weirdness of the series comes from the fact it is an Italian title being brought to the US. Italian artist Milo Manara has done the B cover for it and it is definitely one to watch.
Milo Manara is a famous Italian Artist who does some very risqué work. Makes sense he would do a cover for the risqué book Unnatural coming out from Image. The Unnatural #1 Manara Variant is up for pre-sale for less than cover. (shown to the left). Of course this book might not be for everyone, flipper or collector.
The last Image book Manara did a cover for was Grindhouse, Drive in Bleed Out Nebulina. The book was banned in Canada because of the cover (I wonder if Unnatural will get banned in Canada too). When we covered this book being a Manara cover, the book popped up. It still lists for $20 pus dollars on eBay. (Granted, not many copies have sold in a while.)
A couple have sold at buy-it-now as seen below. One sold at cover with two being sold at best offer for $32.99 asking price and $89.99 asking.
Of course that isn’t the actual closing prices, they closed at $31 and $65 respectively.
Still, if the book keeps getting noticed, this trend could continue.
