Through the power of Google I found that MM 20 9.8 with the McKean sketch. It's pretty sweet. Owner of said book, please deposit it into the nearest mailbox, addressed to: ryanatlas, 696969 Awesome Drive, Bostonarea, MA 99999. Thank you.
?? I own the book - I bought it back in 2009 from Rich (rasmus?) for what then would have been about $500
I don't actually have a picture of it graded - but as you can see from my registry it's the real deal. Pic ungraded to folllow
Here's a bit of Rich's email to me... (he thought it was Bucky at first due to the placement - but all McKean)
Hit me back when you get this...while I am sure this won't matter to you, I needed to clarify...the head sketch is by DAVE McKEAN, not Mark Buckingham. I realized that I had a typo in there, and mistakenly indicated that Buckingham might have done the head sketch. He did not...in fact, getting Buckingham on the book was sheer dumb luck...I was at the DC booth getting my FABLES signed by Bill Willingham, with Mark Buckingham just happened to pop by and I just HAPPENED to have the MM 20 on me. I then went to the booth in the back of the hall that was hosting Kent Williams and Dave McKean. I had McKean sign my Hellblazers and then lastly, the MM 20, and asked him for a sketch. He said he wasn't sure if he remembered what the character looked like, then whips out that crazy brush pen of his and does a PERFECT Mike Moran head sketch. So the reason I bring that up is because there was some confusion on my paperwork at CGC, then I realized that I had indicated somewhere along the line (quite by accident) that Buckingham did the sketch. It's a DAVE McKEAN orig. sketch, buddy.
I'm discussing its sale at present with a UK collector but feel free to make me an offer (it's not listed anywhere yet)

Oh, I knew the book was yours. I was just being silly with my prior post. I went and looked at your registry set just to see what the book looked like and to check out your sketched MM 15. Pretty sick stuff all around.
