[SOLD!]

Aliens [SET]: 1 through 6, all first prints.
Asking Price: $175  [SOLD!]

#1 is a first print and in nice shape with these exceptions:
one mid-spine color-breaking tick.
3 spine bends right at the LLC. Probably pressable, but not sure what that will leave you from there.
The top and bottom of the spine corners are ever-so slightly soft. Open corners are sweet.
Back cover, top of spine - a very small impression.
So - maybe a 9.0? Improvable? Likely. But not a 9.8 candidate.


#2    9.4
#3    9.0 (color rub along spine - from stacking or production?)
#4    9.4
#5    9.4
#6    9.4 or better

Conan 23     5.5
Asking Price: $185

Pretty looking copy, but then... CROM!
Water staining at the very bottom of the book, LLC of front cover (see interior pic) and LRC of back cover.
We all know how CGC murders you like a pig-dog in the night for stains.

Oh yes... Conan 24 is coming next...

Conan 24     7.0  (but you could possibly hammer me to a 6.5)
Asking Price:  $170

Solid copy with some light impressions. Color rub in the red logo area. LRC, small crease.
Bottom edge of back cover, small tear. Top edge of back cover, light bend top edge. A couple of spots of soiling.
Improvable?  maybe. Not much, I don't think.
Page quality of both of these Conans feels great.

Amazing Fantasy 15 (2006)  [Copy A]    9.4
Asking:  $330  [SOLD!]

Prices fluctuate a little on this one. Trying to come in a little on the lower-mid.
What's gonna knock this out of a 9.8 is the top spine corner is just a *hint* off razor sharp.
And the lower spine corner has a tiny production burr from the folding process... so, slightly soft on that corner.
Otherwise pretty nice.
