THE TITLE, NUMBER, PUBLISHER AND GRADE ARE ALL IN THE LISTING HEADING. All comics are FIRST printings unless noted here in the description.
I have been a dealer and collector of comics and related items for almost 30 years. I still enjoy the hobby and try very hard to make my customers happy. But if you want to slab books please don't tell us and if you are a "mint" freak please don't offer with us. Comics are to be enjoyed, not sealed away in plastic tombs and left to rot - unread and unseen!
Comic grading is an art-form, not a science. And trying to determine what the difference between an 8.5 and 9.0 graded comic is a joke.
We do not use specific Overstreet grades. Frankly, we think some of the allowable faults in certain grades in Overstreet are wrong. We grade EXTREMELY conservatively as you can see from our response. We use the following grades in evaluating our books:
Fair - Reading copy only. The comic is complete, unless noted, but shows heavy wear.
Good - Complete copy showing a fair amount of wear including cover creases, spine rolls and/or other damage.
Fine - Collectible copy in pretty good condition. Might have a few small defects, but otherwise in fairly nice shape.
Very Fine - A nice copy. No significant faults. Maybe a corner crease, binding stress lines or a little edge wear. A nice collector's copy.
Mint - A really nice copy. No ink/pencil markings (despite what overstreet allows), one or two minor faults - a very small corner crease or a couple of binding stress lines only. A really beautiful copy.
