We strive to provide the best possible product to our customers. However, all copies are only guaranteed nm- 9.2 or higher. A NM- 9.2 is categorized as a nearly perfect copy that looks brand new with only a few very minor defects. Acceptable minor defects on a NM copy include: an exceedingly small amount of spine stresses, very minor instances of denting (two or three at most), slight corner blunting, and minor (less than 1/8") bends without color breaks. We cannot guarantee 9.8 copies. In some cases, it is possible for a comic shipped brand new from the publisher to already be in less than near mint condition due to the way the comic was produced, shipped, stored, or handled prior to purchase.
