On the Action Girl, I believe that it was one of the 5 different chase cards that came 1 per box of the Milk and Cheese factory set

Does it have foil on it ? The other 4 were

Hectic Planet
The Murder Family
Myron the Living Voodoo Doll
The Eltingville Comic Book, etc. Club

Here is a Dark Horse signing card not listed in PCE2008. It's Space Circus by Sergio Aragones. He signed them at the Dark Horse booth and added a sketch on the back.

By the late 90's anyone who was collecting promo cards was starting to get a handle on what was easy to get either directly or through trades and what was hard to find once you did know about it. Some of what you could get then is impossible to find now. Sometimes, one particular dealer was the main source and he sold out later or sometimes you couldn't find that dealer later. Conversely, some cards that were almost impossible to get then are now available on Ebay at a reasonable price.

One example of something I could find then but can't find now and not even listed in PCE2008 is a different version of the cards listed in PCE2008 under "Magic of Lithofoil." The two cards provisionally called "Flame Hands" and "Three Characters" were foil-enhanced by a company called Mid-City Lithographers as noted on the back. I wouldn't call them common but you could find them and they've gone up in value ($2 each in 2008; $5-10 today).

In the late 90's I bought a pair of cards that have the same fronts but different backs. They were in a mail-out listing with no photos so I bought them without knowing what I was getting other than that the description was unfamiliar. On these cards the backs promote a show in Denver, Colorado in 1992. They also name the characters on the fronts. "Flame Hands" is actually "Slowburn" (art by Matt Allison) and the "three characters" are "Lucas, Kristyn, and Yanus" (art by Eric Nelson) The backs say that they are "original characters" by the artists so they might not be associated with any comic book series or other entertainment franchise. Maybe someone else knows these characters.

I believe the cards with the "Magic of Lithofoil" backs are the prototypes for the show promo versions. I've seen a number of the Magic of Lithofoil cards for sale but have seen only the two show promo versions I bought.

I have the Magic of Lithofoil versions, but I am pretty sure that I don't have the versions with the Colorado con backs.
