What's with the green ink on the edge? Drunken printing press operator?  Will it detract from the grade???

Distribution ink was allegedly used to mark the different bundles of comics for specific areas according to the color of the ink used. Unfortunately, it wasn't applied with much (if any) care as to how it would ultimately affect the overall condition of the books. This is what I would call a moderate amount of ink. The good thing is it didn't stain very much of the cover and seems mostly confined to the edges of the pages. This is a nice looking copy, but yes, this amount of ink will likely impact the grade. By how much depends upon the grader, but in my mind I don't think a grade in the VF range is unreasonable...
