Hulk 180 Slight (B-1)

Picked up a copy of Hulk 180, that was already graded, and had a restored label. Was looking to remove the restoration, just for the experience-I haven’t had any restored books before. 
however, the “restoration” looks like a kid just drew a little on the cover in some small spots-not to hide any flaws. 
Can someone help me figure out if this can be removed, or if it even really is restoration?

The green you see on Marie’s hair isn’t color touch.  It’s a result of the printing process itself. 2c

Gotcha. I was referencing other pics, and didn’t see it in any other copies. Thanks for the info!

I would check for black color touch along the spine first. 

Didn’t think of that..I’ll check. The notes say color touch on the front cover-is that normally just a generic statement?

The spine typically gets spine cracks and the black color breaks.  Amateurs would take black pen or marker and fill the color breaks. 

Thanks for the info, but the spine is white, and I checked just to be sure, and it has nothing.

It's likely in the dark area to the left of Hulk's word bubble. Probably covering some hairline creases. In fact, it appears some of it may bleed into the white area of the spine.

It was. Although it looks like sharpie, or pen, not really covering up anything even though it’s over two color breaks.
