I'd like to say from the outset, nearly all of these books (that are not 9.4-9.6) have improvable flaws. I was thinking about having them addressed but life is keeping me too busy for that.

I'm going to run this a little differently. In addition to the usual rules listed above, let's work with these additional incentives.

  • Buy 5-7 books, take 10% off
  • Buy 8-9 books, take 15% off
  • Buy 10 books, take 20% off

Free books do not count toward this discount. If I list a lot with multiple books, that counts as one for the above calculation.

  • 32. Creepy (Spanish) 34, VF- 7.5, Nice and glossy copy of this cool Wrightson cover. One of the nice things about these Spanish issues of Creepy is that the cover stock is much better than US books. $40

Page 6:

  • 70. Spirit 1, NM+ 9.4-9.6, A superior copy that looks like it was just printed. Will Eisner will always be the man and Jim Warren did an excellent thing reviving The Spirit in the 70s. Tough to find a better copy. Cover art by the amazing Basil Gogos. $100

  • 80. Vampirella 78, NM 9.4, Although I've seen slabbed 9.6s with the same thing, I'm grading this lower because of the staple impressions on the back cover. A stunning copy of this classic Barbara Leigh Photo cover. $80 Sold to dover

Page 7:

  • 91. Vampirella 43, NM 9.2-9.4, Fresh looking copy with full color and gloss. Tough issue due to the black cover and cover stock. $70

14. Creepy 55, VF/NM 9.0-9.2, Exceptionally difficult book in high grade. Even more so with the poster included (which this copy has, many don't). Black cover is very unforgiving. Slight back cover rubbing keeps it from higher grades. $90 Sold to MyNameIsLegion per PM
