Item DescriptionHOW WE GRADE: We scan front and back covers on a flatbed scanner to visualize every crease,fold,or tic. We ENLARGE and MAGNIFY the scan to see in detail every possible defect. We then assign a grade. For example for a 9.8 the spine can NOT have even 1 stress line (under magnification) or corner crease. We progress from there.
KEY COLLECTOR COMICS notes the following:
1st appearance of Mariko Yashida, Wolverine's now-deceased fiance
Classic Byrne and Austin art!! A solid GLOSSY cover and an OFF WHITE to MOSTLY WHITE paged copy, complete, with NO evidence of Marvel Chipping. Pages are SUPPLE easy to read. Staple placement rock solid with no peri staple wear. NO CORNER CREASES detected.Solid spine, complete with only a few faint spine stress' Comic maintains structural rigidity, and the back cover is HIGHER grade.
We have reviewed this under HIGH MAGNIFICATION.This is a flat,tight copy,unrestored that we feel is graded accurately.
WE GUARANTEE the grade within 0.5,meaning if CGC grades this below the grade we assigned by MORE than 0.5, within 45 days of purchase,you can request a full refund plus an EXTRA $25.00. We will also reimburse return shipping upon the slab being received by us.We make this guarantee because no one is perfect; grading always has some subjectivity, and defects can be missed.
We will be listing thousands of KEYS,KEYS,AND MORE KEY comics in the FEATURED and other sections over the next while. Eventually our goal will be to list 10,000 KEY ISSUES! We started selling comics nationally in MARVEL COMICS with FULL PAGE ads in the early 1980s.We were the first to list 6 different grades to choose from.(SEE AMAZING SPIDERMAN #365 FOR AN EXAMPLE) We also advertised with FULL PAGE (or bigger- up to 35 pages) ads in the COMIC BUYERS GUIDE (1982-1995) , and the ROCKETS BLAST COMIC COLLECTOR before that in the 1970s under various names. Gold,Silver,Bronze,Copper and Modern will be listed from one of the oldest and largest inventories around! We will always try to give you value!
