  • Variant 'Netherrealms' Mortal Kombat DLC game edition
  • Intended for distribution at the 2020 Final Kombat live gaming competition in Chicago which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdowns
  • ⚠️ Buyer Beware: the current value of this book has been communicated to Key Collector to be in the $2,500 range BUT considering this con was cancelled, it is unknown who is in possession of these promotional giveaways or if they were dispersed
  • The concern is that these issues have been held back to establish a scarcity perception and elevated price point
  • Graded copies as of August 2022:
  • 3 copies graded 9.8
  • 2 copies graded 9.2
  • 1 copy graded 9.6 / 9.0 / 8.5 / 7.5
  • The Editor-In-Chief at Todd McFarlane Productions relayed to Key Collector the following quote, transcribed to this description directly:
  • "So this was a small event to begin with. Only a couple hundred issues were produced. It was canceled to the public but it was still held in private for the players. What we were told was that less than 50 copies were distributed by the event organizers to the players and their +1’s. The rest, along with all the other free swag was trashed due to the cost of shipping it back to the MK offices. We have worked with them before so there is no reason to believe that this was not the case. I know the guys on some of the Spawn Groups are pretty relentless when it comes to rare Spawn issues, and I know several of them reached out to the players themselves to get a copy. I think it would be fare to say that less than 50 copies exist out in the wild at this point. I hope this helps."
  • Conclusion: it is difficult to determine how many of these exist but chances are it is one of the scarcest variants considering it was going to be given away at an event that was to take place at the Park West theatre in Chicago which has an occupancy of 1,000
