The edges of the cover have wear, a few minor tears and are beginning to show signs of brittleness.BACK COVER - Quite clean looking. There is a small tear on the top edge of the book.INTERIOR PAGES - Paper is tan and supple, brittleness has not set in yet. All pages are intact, although the centerfold pages are beginning to tear away from the staples.CORNERS - Corners are bluntedSTAINS - There are some odd stains on two of the pages, visible in the word balloons. (It's almost as if someone was using a marker to write on a piece of paper with this comic underneath the paper, and some of the ink began to bleed through. Savages!)SPINE - Creases and tears are visible on several places up and down the spine of the book. The book shows moderate spine roll.OUR ESTIMATED CONDITION: 4.0We feel that this book might possibly qualify for a 5.0, but in the interest of showing absolute transparency for this type of book, we're going to play it safe and declare it at a 4.0 condition.
