Face it, dark cover or solid color books always show those nasty defects: spine ticks, CB creases and staple tears. Black covers being the worst. Now magnify that to magazine size and you have one heck of a time finding a near flawless copy. This thread is for showing off some of those tough black cover mags. Post 'em if you got 'em! (thumbsu

Skywalds were notorious for some tough black covers. Add to that, whatever type of ink they used always came off and created fingerprints and smudges. :pullhair:

Here are some better examples I've luckily come across...

The 22 above and this 18 were both from Doug Sulipa years ago. The 18 is even tougher as it's back cover is black also.

I thought I had a better copy of this one. Maybe I do and forgot to scan it. hm

Anyhow you can see the infamous fingerprints on this copy. Also this issue has some great Tom Sutton art within! :cloud9:

Forgive the other pic. Seems we can't delete a photo once it's in there.:tonofbricks:

Doesn't hurt that it's a great photo. (worship)

Spoiler

When you go to edit... go to the very bottom and click the garbage can icon at the bottom right of the photo you want to delete. It should say "remove this attachment" when you hover over it.
I think that would work.

God I love horror mags.  :cloud9:

Find a near perfect Eerie #2, it will take some time I'm sure.
