We will always attempt to stay under a 9.8 value for a book even if the rare feature of the book makes it harder to find than a 9.8. So, please refrain from sending offers around what you saw it on one of the analytic sites for. We probably won't respond to the offer if you do. Due to the fact that comic book grading is a subjective artform, we advertise our grades in a range(IE: VF-NM).The grade range is our opinion of the what the book will fall into if graded by CGC, CBCS, PGX etc. Due to this grade range, a VF-NM book can range from 8.0 to 9.8(we would place a 7.5 in the FN-VF range).
If there are any defects that keep it from the higher end of a grade range we will list the book as "closer to VG" in an advertised VG-FN range. If the book is exceptional, we MAY(but not always) say the book is closer to NM-MT.Most major defects(IE: writing, cutouts, missing pages/wraps, stains, staple detachments, warpage) will be listed in the condition description(UNLESS THE BOOK IS LISTED IN THE PR-FR RANGE, since obviously those books will ALWAYS contain major defects, though we will state if the book is incomplete in any way). We offer high quality comic books and collectibles at low prices.
And dropped at the Post Office. We strive for 5 STAR service and our feedback shows it! We will always get back to you within hours, not days.As can be gleaned from our feedback, customer service is our top priority. Most of our customers would agree that we are strict graders, and you will rarely see any of our books advertised above "VF-NM"(even if they are).
However, we understand there could be people even more strict than us out there and we also humbly realize that we are human. You may be pleasantly surprised just how far we will go to make you happy.
