This is a really sweet copy, sits flat, great gloss, excellent color and page quality, pages soft and supple, off white. Extremely minor wear to corner and spine keeping this from grading higher. The first two photos are actual high definition scans of the comic book. As everyone knows, grading can at times be subjective.
Additional photos are provided for you to make the best decision before purchasing. I use the Overstreet grading scale in determination for the grades listed, but look at the photos for your assessment. Overstreet definition for the range of NM. 9.2 NEAR MINT- (NM-): Nearly perfect with only a minor additional defect or defects that keep it from Near Mint.
A limited number of minor bindery/printing defects are allowed. A light, barely noticeable water stain or slight foxing that does not detract from the beauty of the book is acceptable for this grade.
Cover is flat with (almost) no surface wear. Inks are bright with only the slightest dimming of reflectivity.
Generally well centered and firmly secured to interior pages. Corners are cut square and sharp with ever-so-slight blunting permitted.
A 1/16-1/8 bend is permitted with no color break. Small, inconspicuous, lightly penciled, stamped or inked arrival dates are acceptable as long as they are in an unobtrusive location. No soiling, staining or other discoloration apart from some slight foxing. Spine is tight and flat. No spine roll or split allowed.Staples may show some discoloration. No staple tears are allowed; almost no stress lines. In rare cases, a comic was not stapled at the bindery and therefore has a missing staple; this is not considered a defect. Any staple can be replaced on books up to Fine, but only vintage staples can be used on books from Very Fine to Near Mint. Mint books must have original staples.
Paper is (no worse than) off-white to cream, supple and fresh. No hint of acidity in the odor of the newsprint.Slight interior tears are allowed. Feel free to message for any additional questions or photos.
