  1. Yea, I wasn't looking to get it graded or anything so I wasnt very worried about it, just more interested on how something like that would affect a grade since I've never come across any other books with this issue. If this was a Hulk 181, then it would definitely be an Ebay 1/1 worth tons more money.
  2. Hello, today I've got a nice copy of ASM 45 up for your grading expertise. Book looks great at first glance but upon closer inspection there's a few color breaking ticks here and there. Interior has no issues, pages are probably OW/W, lay flat and are tight to the staples. Thanks for any input!
  3. So this copy has a staple error that I haven't seen on any other books. At least not in my experience, I'm sure its probably a common error. Looks like the book was not properly aligned when it was stapled. The book has no staples at all, but there are staple holes in the front cover about 3/4 inch from the spine. They only go through half the book. I'm wondering what kind of affect this would have on the grade if it does have any. Thanks for any input.
  4. Wow, talk about some luck. The Ironjaw is so cool. I love the artwork by Pablo Marcus. You can tell he was a fan of Barry Windsor Smith.
  5. I know the feeling. I've got a few experiences that I kick myself over for not picking a book up when it was cheaper.
  6. I've been on a Hellboy/ Mignola-verse kick lately. Been reading through his HB and related novels. Just finished "Emerald Hell" a couple weeks ago and finished "Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire" before that. Last week I got through "Joe Golem and the Drowning City" and now I'm about a quarter of the way through "An Assortment of Horrors ". When I'm not in the mood to read a novel and need some pictures to look at, I've been slowly making my way through "The Art of Pulp Horror" by Stephen Jones. Really cool book about the history of horror pulps starting with penny dreadfuls in the early 1800s, then the Pulps we all know and love, Weird Tales, The Shadow, Doc Savage, Argosy, etc..., and then comics and the cheesy slasher/exploitation paperbacks of the 60s-80s and all the way to horror books that are published today. I highly recommend it to anyone here who's a fan of horror.
  7. My adventures digging through 50 cent to $2 boxes this past week. I think the best score is the Dark Horse Presents 10, 1st app of The Mask, and in pretty good condition too. First photo, DHP10 and Ironjaw 4 were a dollar, the rest 50c. The second photo everything was a dollar each.
  8. Thank you everyone for your input so far!
  9. Not much going on with this copy, I just have a hard time grading these higher grade comics. This copy has a few very slight creases here and there (all pictured), and I don't know how many are allowed before it starts to get lower than the NM grades. Interior is flawless, white pages that lay flat, no staple issues, cut outs, etc... Thanks!
  10. Thanks everyone for the tips! Much appreciated!
  11. Hello everyone! So I've got a book here whos kind of throwing me for a loop. At first glance the books looks great, no tears, creases, paper loss, chipping, etc.. but looking closer there's a few flaws that are giving me a hard time, mainly because I don't know how the combination of them would affect the grade. First, there's writing up in the logo box, then its got staining on both the FC and BC, and the bottom staple is popped. Any feedback on these issue and what they would make the book grade would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  12. Today, for your grading expertise, I have both a copy of ASM 361 and ASM 361 2nd Print. (Sorry if this is not allowed, I figured I'd put both in one post instead of making 2 separate posts) Any help and thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Both books are pretty much flawless, the only major things I can see are 2 small, non color breaking spine ticks on the 1st print near both staples. Thanks for looking!
  13. These are cutting it pretty close but still, pre-code. Found these three at a comic book yard sale. Paid 20 dollars for all 3.
  14. Found a comic book yard sale today and picked up all of these plus more for about 40 dollars.
  15. Thats pretty cool! Since its an advanced copy, I'm assuming that it's a first print?
