Hey all,

New to the forums but I have been collecting comics for awhile now and decided to try my hand on some estate sales to hopefully find some gems at good prices. Today I was able to grab a lot of comics that including both the direct market & news stand versions of SW8.

At first glance of my newsstand version I noticed a purple mark on Spider-Man’s head (I provided pictures below of both my copies). My first thought was someone must have nicked it with a marker because when I google search the newsstand edition and none of the copies seem to have it. However, I was able to find one other copy online that seems to have the purple mark on his head too (provided a picture of it below as well).

Can anyone explain why some have that mark? Would love to know the reasons behind it.

thanks in advance for the help!

 

*also I apologize for putting this in silver age, my mistake*
