    Seeing JLI #19 on the spinner rack when it came out was a riot! A credit to the humor-theme of the Justice League title of that day! (So was Guy back then!) Kudos to whomever thought it up as reverse play on the impressive #18 which was impressive in it's own debut giving Lobo's street cred - back then.

    My question is: Does anyone have any idea why #19 is valued as twice as much as #18 in the price guide? Heck, #18 even had a bonus book inside. Very curious. Is there some other obvious difference being overlooked?

I don't know how the price guides work today but as I remember them they used a lot of arbitrary criteria to judge value. JLI #19 doesn't seem particularly remarkable but it does feature the 'return' of Guy Gardner and a punch-up with Lobo, so that may be one factor. But another more likely consideration might be relative scarcity - I can't swear to it but I very strongly suspect #19 had an unusually low distribution, it did happen back then occasionally, add to the draw of a Guy/Lobo fight and this may be an issue that was/is relatively hard to come by.
