Two of these are pretty well known and circulating among fans or sellers. They're from 1991/2 era (3 Chains O' Gold, etc etc sorta stuff). The ones of him hitting someone or Boy George etc I've never seen.

There was also a Spider-man comic quite a few years ago where either the writer or illustrator was a huge Prince fan. There were Prince references on the cover, including "Sometimes It Snows In April".

Cool! I didn't know about the appearance in Captain America. I'll have to look that one up.

There's also Rock N' Roll Comics #21 from 1991 featuring Prince & George Clinton that's pretty cool.



Then there's Fame from Bluewater Comics in 2013. It's just awful.



And Tribute: Prince from Storm Entertainment last year. Except for the cover, this one sucks too.



Prince has also been mentioned several times in the past year in Marvel Comics' Spider-Man & Guardians Of The Galaxy books, plus, he's mentioned as being the musical entertainment at Black Panther & Storm's wedding in Black Panther #18 in 2006.

There was also a Mad Magazine movies special issue from circa 1990 that had a short parody comic making fun of Prince and Purple Rain.

Only second hand, often high priced.

The estate should get DC Comics (WB) to release a paperback or hardcover edition of the 2 from DC/Piranha Press. I have those 2 but would still buy a book version.

I think the 2 recent, really awful, Fame & Tribute are still available at cover price from Comic Flea Market. Just search "Fame Prince" & "Tribute Prince".
