In honor of the recent announcement of Madame Web in the Spidey movie universe

Never would've thought Madame Web would be a spin off character, but what do I know about the movie biz - though I am getting to be a background character at a restaurant scene of a locally filmed indie movie. We have to pretend to eat & talk.  I told my wife after 29 years of marriage I should be able to win an Oscar doing that!

Nice, i see a small ding on the upper spine corner and a very light staple tear. I'm not real good at high grades but I will say a 9.2?

The rounding/blunting of the corners of the spine looks worse magnified than it does in hand, I’d suspect. BRFC looks dog-eared or potentially torn, though.

It’s hard to grade a high grade book from scans. Especially one like this where the only flaw is corner wear (albeit to both corners of the spine and the BRFC).

My instinct on the front back/cover scans was NM- (9.2) due to the rounding.

For a more accurate grade it would be helpful to know if the bottom right of the front cover is dog eared or if the corner piece is missing.

I'll have to check tonight, but I stared at the book a lot once I heard the news about that movie and I didn't see any tear/missing piece.

Of course now that you say it, I'd have to go back and look again

Based on the scans I'd also say 9.0, with a chance at 9.2...

There are no rips, tears, missing pieces from the corners of anywhere else.

Here's a pic of the front LRC from the backside if that makes it any easier to tell.
