The concept sickens me but what known comics have been counterfeited? I was checking up on an original book I'd like to own, Cry For Dawn #1 and to my dismay I read about 100 counterfeit copies exist.
I've also read of counterfeit copies of TMNT #1 and Cerebus (1977) #1. The latter was described as follows.
I personally find this appalling because I wouldn't have known about that an hour ago and would've been completely fooled by a fake.The printing quality of the counterfeit is actually better than the original, but unless you have a copy of each to compare, this will not be evident.
Are there known attributes to look out for to detect a fake book?
