I could not get the pictures to post so I downloaded them to this link. I would like to know what everyone thinks of their ratings.

omerniar - let's try to keep it somewhat simple to start out. Which 3 are you most interested in getting opinions on?

Also, I would like to point out that is a lot more to grading comics than just the cover condition. I defect on the inside of the comic devalues it just as a defect on the cover would. Maybe not as much, but things like how white the pages are should be taken in to account too.

I was having fun scanning them and seeing how the pictures came out. The three I would be interested in are: 40, 60 and 300. The inside of 40 is ok but a little frayed on the edges. All the pages in 60 are good with a little yellow and 300 is white.

omerniar - one way to do this is post the image right in the Pricing section of the site. Navigate to
ASM 40, click on the issue number or "issue detail page". You'll see a link "Upload Image". Do this,
and now your comic is the reference image for the site!

Ok, but as paglinitattoo mentioned, there is much more to an overall grade than examining the covers, so keep that in mind. Also, for better accuracy, and this is very important when selling, make sure your scans go beyond the actual edges of the comic. Some scanning software does you a "favor" by cropping right up to the edge automatically - you don't want that. It's a "virtual trim".

ASM 40: Hard to tell what's going on in the lower left corner, but this book appears to be in the FN 6.0 ballpark

ASM 60: This one too looks to be somewhere between FN- 5.5 and FN+ 6.5.

ASM 300: Looks like a possible NM 9.4. The right edge seems a little rough in spots, but it appears to be a manufacturing defect - what commonly happens with a dull cutter near the end of print run. In order to try and assess anything potentially higher than 9.4, you really have to hold the book in your hands to examine it close enough.

Comics are also about content, art, and the human condition! Contemporary or past. As long as you receive enjoyment from them who cares if it's ragged copy or not!
