Chrome cover of QG 1- there is also a "holochrome" cover - sort of a holograph look.  Here, a flat version of the cover has been scanned. 

I have one chrome, and two holochromes.  There were 3000 chrome copies, and 1000 holochromes.  Hard to tell the difference: "The holoplaid limited edition is a slightly shinier chrome edition."

Vampirella: Queen's gambit. Vol. 1-3. Series: Vampirella no. 13-15. Munich, Germany: Splitter Verlag, 1998.
Released in a Presseausgabe and Buchhandelausgabe, the latter with a chromium cover. German translation by Gülbin Ünlü, from the American title of the same name.

The  chrome covers are interesting.  The inside of the cover is a nice large version of the 'regular' cover - would make a nice poster if you could get one that was not folded.  The chrome cover is folded around an identical non-chrome cover, which in the US were  the regular alternate covers, except for QG3, which might have been a tough sell here.
