Don McGregor did such a great job in this series. Too bad you can't see his work in those slabs ;-)

Why not........has CGC changed their slabs so that you can no longer crack out the books to enjoy them the way they were meant to be enjoyed? hm

Whelp, it finally came in and it wasn't even close. I think the grade is accurate (though maybe a little bit harsh). My problem being that it seems I didn't spend enough time looking at the back cover. Several small spine ticks that didn't notice back there. One that's hard to see but carries over to the front a little also. Sorry to get everyone's hopes up but that's the way it goes sometimes. The search continues....:ohnoez:

Doh! doh!

You know looking at this edge closely now I'm beginning to think the reason this issue has no 9.8's is that there are several spots in that border line that look like spine tics that are actually part of the art. If you look at the close up it seems like there are 6 tics but actually only 3 of them are real tics and the other 3 are part of the art that actually goes into the border line. hm

Its 2022 not 1982. I can read any comic i want with a few mouse clicks.  cbr cbz pdf..  On a 12.2 tablet better than having real book in your hand as u can enlarge easily to customize for ones own optical needs

Being an long time old school type of collector, looking at something on a screen is simply not the same as having the touch and feel of the actual comic book itself as you are flipping through the pages.  :luhv:

That’s true but does anyone crack out 9.8s?. Truthfully I’m not planning on reading these copies.

Not talking about freeing a book after it's already been imprisoned in one of those bulky industrialized slabs, but simply keeping them raw so that they can be enjoyed the way they were meant to be and also shared with some of your comic book buddies at the same time: :applause: :luhv:

Then again, I guess that copy of Fantastic Comics 3 would have had a much better shot at a CGC 9.8 instead of a paltry CGC 9.6 if it had not been passed around and enjoyed by so many of his buddies.  :bigsmile:  :cloud9:
