Go to our web-site to check out our huge inventory and high resolution scans.
Comicana Direct determines grade by strict adherence to Overstreet grading standards, although we also incorporate certain aspects of the standards laid down by CGC, the industry's premier third-party grading company, when those standards are stricter than Overstreet's interpretation.
Our aim is to allocate a grade that would be the minimum grade received should the book be submitted to CGC for independent assessment. Although we cannot guarantee this will happen, our experience on submissions made to CGC are that less than 10% of books come back graded lower than our assessment, more than 60% are returned at exactly the same grade, and over 30% come back at a higher grade than the one we assigned.
You will find grade comments on certain books; tape along spine, interior covers browning, etc. Please note that these flaws have already been taken into account when determining the stated grade, and are included for informational purposes, to highlight specific defects/characteristics that certain collectors might have personal issues with.
