Classic racist cover.
Condition is weird on this one... for once the outer cover actually looks better than the interior. Strong eye appeal but structural issues;

-- Some kind of bug nibble to the extreme top edge of some pages (easier to see from the back cover scan). No art is affected.
-- IMO single staple was most likely replaced.
-- Interior is complete. Several wraps are loose at the centerfold, ragged and also a bit chewed along the extreme right edge, and more noticeable because of the book's overall wonky miscut.

Thanks all!

I'd guess Conserved 3.0/3.5 (assuming staple replaced).  Let me know if you need help checking the pages.  I've got a raw one around and would be happy to help.

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
