United comics 21 tied 1st peanuts

Just got this book. It was in utterly in horrible shape. But i am super super happy to have it. I repaired spine with as minimal tape as possible but i had to use more than i wanted to just do to books condition. Cleaned what i could without damaging book or tearing it. Fixed interior. Pressed and very happy with results.  Now i have an adequate place holder.  This was an absolute blast to see this book change.

Showcase 34

Just picked this one up. It had a lot of spine issues and in middle of book (front and back covers) Both areas look fantastic now imo.

Amazing Spider-Man 14

This book belongs to a friend of mine. He wanted me to press and to apply tape where needed to put book back together. I used a total of 1/2 inch x 3/4 inch. I cut into smallest slivers to fix spine area. Book pressed out real nice.

Brave and the bold 28

This is a friend of mines book. It was already a gorgeous copy. However there was in issue in lower left of front cover that went through entire book. Not many pics on this one and forgot to take a pic of back cover where denting was as well. Got everything out and big improvement for an already awesome book.

Human torch 7 timely

This one was for a friend. As you can see this book is pretty demolished. Applied small tape to centerfold and inside spine per his request to help hold book back together.  This book was very far gone, now it has a little life left in it.
