Excellent - Almost new and fresh. Sparingly used.
Very Good - Attractive. Fresh looking, minor wrinkling.
Good - Old but well-maintained. At times, Fresh Looking books with minor repairs may also be categorized three star.
Fair - Pretty old and frequently used. Still readable and useful. The book may have taped edges and yellowed pages.
Poor - Readable and useful, but poorly maintained. Buy this book only if you want to read and discard.
All conditions are on best effort basis.
Comic Book Grading ( Rare comics)
We are now also selling RARE Comics. For better transparency, you can find the following notations in the description of the comic. The grading is subjective and follows best practices.
- Near Mint (NM): A near-perfect copy that looks brand new with negligible defects.
- Very Fine (VF): A copy that is in excellent condition overall with minor defects. Most well-maintained modern comics fall under this grade.
- Fine (FN): A book in above average condition with a certain degree of wear.
- Very Good (VG): A copy that has a good eye appeal with significant wear, but not enough to render it undesirable. May have minor taping.
- Good (GD): A copy with defects, but is complete and readable. Maybe repaired with tape. Edges may be fixed.
- Fair (FR): A copy that is damaged with little eye appeal. Maybe restored with heavy taping.
- Poor (PR): A copy missing up to four pages (or two spreads) of story or ad pages. Its spine may be completely split, or have considerable damage that impacts the book’s readability.
