Journey Into Mystery volume 1, #96 in FN condition. Steve Ditko Artwork, Stan Lee Story. Super nice upper mid-grade Silver Age book.
Sits flat, the colors still pop hard for a book nearly 60 years old, some corner and spine wear, small chip at top of front cover, good page quality, pages soft, supple and clean, OW/CR. The first two photos are actual HD scans of the comic book. You will receive the actual comic in the photos. As everyone knows, grading can at times be subjective.Additional photos are provided for you to make the best decision before purchasing. I use the Overstreet grading scale in determination for the grades listed, but look at the photos for your assessment. 6.0 FINE (FN): An above-average copy that shows minor wear but is still relatively flat and clean with no significant creasing or other serious defects. Eye appeal is somewhat reduced because of slight surface wear and the accumulation of small defects, especially on the spine and edges. A FINE condition comic book appears to have been read a few times and has been handled with moderate care. Some accumulation of minor bindery defects is allowed. Minor cover wear apparent, with minor to moderate creases.
Inks show a significant reduction in reflectivity. Blunted corners are more common, as is minor staining, soiling, discoloration, and/or foxing.Stamped or inked arrival dates may be present. A minor spine roll is allowed. There can also be a 1/4 spine split or severe color break. Staples may show minor discoloration. Minor staple tears and a few slight stress lines may be present, as well as minor rust migration.
In rare cases, a comic was not stapled at the bindery and therefore has a missing staple; this is not considered a defect. Any staple can be replaced on books up to Fine, but only vintage staples can be used on books from Very Fine to Near Mint. Mint books must have original staples.
Paper is (no worse than) brown to tan and fairly supple with no signs of brittleness. No hint of acidity in the odor of the newsprint. Minor interior tears at the margin may be present. Centerfold may be loose but not detached.
