NOTE on CGC graded comics: Some will have some "rainbow effects spots/pools" a.k.a. "Newton's rings" on the front and/or back, where the different inner and outer plastics may touch and light refracts through them. This does not hurt the comic in any way. See more info on my CGC Graded comics page. No returns because of this effect, ok? Get FREE raw comics with them too.

Hologram cover tribute to Amazing Fantasy #15. 80 pages. Nice NM/NM-, main defects are 3 color breaking spine stress marks, very common with this issue. Top one is about 1/8", middle one is about 1/4", and there's a little scuff/scratch on the curved part just below it, and bottom one is lightest and 1/8". Hologram is pretty clean, only 1 tiny flake spot on right side about a 1/2" below Spidey's elbow. Doesn't have the usual spine corner chips/ticks though. Clean black cover without the common shelf scuffing. Back cover is white and clean except for 1 tiny brown dot on lower margin. Have seen multiples with 3 stress marks get 9.4 from CGC, others 9.2, so to be on the safe side I'm going to call it 9.2. Yours for...$48 (View pic #1) (View pic #2) (View spine pic)

Marvel Super-Heroes #15, Vol. 1, 1968. F/VF 7.0 to VF- 7.5, white pages. All new Medusa (of the Inhumans) story, by Archie Goodwin, art by Gene Colan, plus reprints. Medusa vs. the Trapster, Sandman and the Wizard. Nice copy, and it has the "normal" printing spots all over the cover from them stacking them before ink was dry, which most of this issue's print run had. They show some in the scan as the pinkish spots in the title, but show more in person. Main defect is a vertical 1.5" upward bend ridge near right edge, about 3" up from the bottom. No color break, and doesn't show in the scan, but noticeable in person; minor little kink spot at bottom left edge in Medusa's foot; top right corner has faint 1/2" mostly vertical bend to it, hardly noticeable; 3-4 worthless short stress marks on spine in the white border, they show more on the flat edge; decently square spine, and cover is otherwise smooth, edges are clean; back cover has some usual transfer "dirt", not bad...$24 (View)

Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D./SHIELD, 1968 series:
#3 VG/F 5.0, off-white pages. Steranko cover & story. Looks better than grade, main defect is a 1" corner crease upper right; about 7 very thin 2-4mm spine stresses, hardly detract; fuzz at bottom spine corner; 1/16" tip crease bottom right; and found 2 water/moisture spots on cover—one 3/16"L x 1/8"H in R in Fury, shows as dull spot, but inside there's a stain spot; other lighter dull spot in E in SHIELD title, about 1/2"L x 3/16"H, has scattered little dull spots spreading off of it; a few little ones in Marvel box above Fury. You don't see the spots unless glinted or you're told where they are. And a water stain that shows on inside front cover on bottom edge near spine—two spots, bigger one is 3/4" wide, about 3/8" high at highest point, and a 1/4" one above it. Doesn't show on front due to green grass color, and is not all fuzzy or browned like bad stains, but has discoloration. Only affects the inside cover, not interior pages. Otherwise nice glossy cover, nice edges. Back cover is clean and nice...$15 (View 580px wide, 157kb) (View 900px wide, 332kb) (View back)
#7 Fine- 5.5, off-white pages. Steranko cover. Top right corner has thin 1" corner crease, light bend to it, and it goes through the book, with 3/4" crease on back cover corner; stress fractures along top edge overhang; 5 or so spine kinks, most very mild, one at bottom is worst, with thin dip extending about 1/2" in; couple 3/16" stress marks too, 3-4 other short ones, most hide well in the art. Back cover shows some very light indent lines near bottom spine corner, 1/4 to 1/2"; two dull spots in ad that look like thumb prints when glinted, can't see otherwise...$25 (View 580 px wide, 155kb) (View 900px wide, 333kb) (View back)
#10 VF 8.0, off-white/white pages. Christmas story, hence the cover art. Very nice at first glance, little niggling things keep it from VF+. About 7 very thin 2-3mm spine stresses/fractures, no kinks; slight abrasion along bottom edge; some pin-tip size indents in the red ornament, most at bottom, one near top; light color rub/scuff spot in bad guy's eye (right one looking at it), another very minor scuff in ornament neck; 3/8" light print crease in Fury's ornament near bottom. Back cover is clean, off-white, has a 1/8" little layer peel/scuff spot near open edge...$25 (View 580px wide, 145kb) (View 900px wide, 286kb) (View back)
#15 F/VF- 7.0, off-white/white pages. First appearance of AN assassin named "Bulls-Eye," but NOT the same one from Daredevil later (Bullseye), this was this guy's first and last appearance, but still high priced in guides. NOT a 'key issue' at all, why do people still say it is? Little fuzzy/rub at top spine tip with the little tick piece there; in Marvel box, there's two little white rub dots right next to black edge across from Fury's shoulder, 3-4 really thin 3mm stress lines/wrinkles, another at top staple; at bottom of top staple, you can see one of those "<" shaped kinks going out 1/2" from it when you glint it, but very very light and shallow, and bottom staple hole has 1/16" tear, melds well so hard to see. Rest of spine is nice, but has very shallow valley the length of it, nothing I count off for though; bottom edge has very slight abrasion along most of it, worst part is near spine where it has the most minor of curl/mush to it, about 3/4" long; open edge has about a 2" section near bottom of white edge abrasions, but broken up. Back: upper left corner area of back cover got bent a little long ago, leaving a couple/3 very light wrinkle lines. Worst one is about an inch down, across corner, maybe 2.5", oh so slightly raised, only about 1.25" of it is noticeable. Inside cover, the ad shows white stress in the black part of that wrinkle. Other wrinkle lines are above it, longest is 3.5" if you count the last part as the same line, which it may not be; another very faint one above that is about 1" long. Can e-mail large scan of back. Pic of back corner has been darkened a bit to show the bends better...$36 (View 580px wide, 171kb) (View 900px wide, 366kb) (View back) (View close-up of top corner)

X-Factor #92 with the blue error hologram. "Fatal Attractions" story part 1. A small amount of various error/mistake holograms were on all 6 parts, and while not super rare, they're fairly rare. I have 4 copies, all are the 'full blue' hologram with Havok. There's other varieties, but this and the all black version seem to be the most popular. Mine all have some little thumbed spots across the bottom edge of the comic, which is why I didn't get them CGC'd, as the best 1 is 9.6 in my opinion (#3), and others might get 9.4, possibly better. Two of mine have a curvy black line running down Havok's right side and through his leg. Some call these 'fracture lines', but nothing is fractured, it's just some kind of extra printing error in the holo, some have lots of it too. Some people like these even more as they're even scarcer.
To save some bandwidth for people, I'll show just 1 copy with the clean holo, and then close-ups of the holos, and close-ups of the bottom edges, and let you all pick what you want. The holos are clearer in person, they just don't scan well. I have larger scans of the comics I can email. Can't seem to get real clear pics or scans of the bottom edge, so they're enlarged and wide, so scrolling is necessary. Prices are all over the place, and this is #1 of the story, so will try...$30 each, or 2 for $50, or all 4 for $80.
