I think I might like the 8.0 better than the 8.5

+1

Now, that is definitely a pretty sharp looking copy for only being graded as CGC 8.0 copy.  hm

Especially since it also has far fewer spine ticks than you tend to see on most other HG copies, which is just so prevalent on this book due to the absolutely poor production.  :luhv:

Unfortunately, the book was slightly restored (color-touched on the spine), so I returned it.  Truly disappointing - but I did confirm that it was a genuine copy!

That book is back!!!!

Curious to see what if restoration removal would be an option for that book?

I noticed he didn't mention anything about the restoration in his listing. Wonder what the price would be if he did mention it???

FattyDaddyComics bought the book before and found restoration, and returned it.

If you think that's painful, wait 20 years when I start my "I Cannot Take Them With Me When I Die - So Let's Shred Them" thread.

I would cry if I saw someone fold a Cerebus 1 like that in person. Seriously.

But it was not not folded. The image is a top view and not a side one, so it looks harsh. Please refer to the image and look at the 4 inch gap between my thumb and index finger. I very gently curled back the front cover - there was a gap of 4 inches between the 2 sides of cover. Rest assured that absolutely no folding had occurred.

I actually have an image of the same book that was taken "post-fold". Judge for yourself the book was not affected in the slightest. Sorry for making you cry and thank you for your concern.

This isn't folded?

Its not, it's real. The scan is probably throwing you off.

It has non-glossy IFC. Cerebus is gray screen through out, not black. Any page and/or close-up, you want to see? The only non-match with your comparison is my "$1" and front soldier are pretty clean.

I posted an image of gray-screened, non-blackish Cerebus; a close-up of a soldier without any trapping of red ink (an older wider known tell); and a comparison of the gloss of the front cover to the non-glossy IFC.

Nope. To fold a sheet means that 2 surfaces have contact. As I explained, I "curled" back the front cover on top of the inner cover. The red front cover (where my thumb is) is 4 inches above the black inner cover and my index finger. Then I took an image from directly above.

Ah, so you folded it. Thanks.

I, for one, thank Dan for carefully curling (not folding) his Cerebus # 1 cover for the benefit of the collector's community.
