Hello experts =)

The only real issue I see with this book is the overspray at the top of the back cover on this. Looking at both covers what’s your verdict on grade on this? And how much do you really get hit for overspray? I tried googling it but the answers seem to be all over the place =\

Also if you see other issues that I missed please let me know! Thanks!

The back cover edges looks browned with some fixing. So I’m at 8.0 conservatively. 

The overspray might keep bump a partial grade if very clean but I don’t think you are in the 9.0+ range with this book to begin with.

There's something above the phrase 'in comic' on the front cover. That discoloration along the top back edges and that overspray would keep it out of the NM category IMHO

8.0-8.5 depending on how well cleaning would help.

Yeah it’s listed as a 9.2

that’s what I wasn’t sure of. Thanks for the input so far! Might have to pass on this book

Don't let ink spray deter you though. I don't think that would affect this book. The tanning and paper discolouration (or appearance of discolouration) is the worse culprit here. Varying degrees of overspray can still grade into the 9.0+ range. See below:

The over-spray is distributor ink and will not effect the grade. I think the book looks to be in pretty good order. 

Spoiler

9.2 IMHO!
