Here's one that should be fun. Picked this up a few years ago cheap. Figured it would be a project one day, and today is the day. 

Will send it in this week to be graded so it will be a while before I post the final results. Scan is before pressing. Will not have a post pressing scan. Want to test everyone's skills a little bit here.

I think once its pressed it'll look dramatically different.  What looks like a readers crease now is actually the fold crease.  I think that would have a shot at a 7.0.

You’ve fixed worse. My Iron Man 1 was even more twisted than this book and you made it dead on.

7.0 after press

:hi:

this is a tough one. that's quite a bit of color breaking vertical creasing along the spine and some horizontal breaks to. I'm in the 5.0 camp. Maybe I'll run into you in Chi Town this year.

I agree. That fold crease... with Joey?

5.0 as is.  After the magic, probably 6.5 - 7.0 judging from your other works (The amazing job on Fantastic Four 5 comes to mind).

6.0 for me. Even if you move that huge vertical crease from the front cover to the apex of the spine, you are then going to have a huge vertical crease on the back cover from the current fold of the spine. Transverse creases aren't going anywhere but they might be "hidden" a bit by moving the main crease. The rest of the book is really nice but I'm still thinking nothing higher than a 6.0

All those cb creases are going right to the spine 8.0/8.5. :shy:

I think that the creasing can be minimized but not hidden completely because it's too far from the black line that separates the front and back cover graphics to put it right on the crease. I'll say 6.0 .

6.0/6.5 after press I think.

Grade is in. I’m in Calgary and will post scans when I get the book back from CGC. 

 

All I I will say is someone was right.
