Why is this comic book valuable?

Gobbledygook is a black and white anthology comic produced by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in 1984. If those name sound familiar it's because these are the same chaps that introduced the world to The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! This book is not to be confused wit the color one shot with the same name produced two years later. The extreme value of this book doesn't come from the fact it's the first appearance of the Fugitoid (the who? Exactly!) it comes from the fact that there is only 150 copies in the world and they were hand produced by Eastman and Laird with a copying machine and staples! Buyers be wary, this is an easy book to counterfeit due to the way it was made. Do your researcha nd make sure it's a trusted seller or someone with evidence of the book's authenticity or some significant provenance!
