Our grading standards are based on the standards laid out in the Overstreet Grading Guide with additional experience gained from our long careers in the comic industry. However, grading is an inherently subjective process and there will always be small differences in opinion. Even professional grading services like CGC, CBCS, and PGX acknowledge that the same book may not always receive the same grade if it is submitted for grading more than once. The basic grading scale, also known as letter grades, uses the grades from Near Mint (highest) to Poor (lowest). NM – Near Mint (Ranges from NM- to NM+, 9.0-10.0). VF – Very Fine (Ranges from VF- to VF+, 7.0-9.0). FN – Fine (Ranges from FN- to FN+, 5.0-7.0). VG – Very Good (Ranges from VG- to VG+, 3.0-5.0). GD – Good (Ranges from GD- to GD+, 1.5-3.0). FR – Fair (Ranges from FR- to FR+, 1.0-1.5). PR – Poor (Ranges from PR- to PR+, 0.5-1.0). Grading Standards and Definitions. NM: A nearly perfect copy that looks brand new with only a few very minor defects. Acceptable minor defects on a NM copy include: a very 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. VF: A VF copy has minor defects, but is in overall excellent condition. Most well-kept modern comics (especially if they have been read) fall into this grade. Acceptable defects on a VF are minor and include: Minor corner wear, a light accumulation of spine stress that may include color-break, a light accumulation of dents, and bends or folds less than 1/4 (note that on a VF copy, some color-break is allowed in a bend/fold). FN: A comic in FN condition is considered “above average” but still displays some wear. In general, the eye appeal is somewhat reduced due to either an accumulation of minor defects or one or two moderate defects. Acceptable defects on a FN copy include: Slight spine roll, a moderate accumulation of spine stresses that may break color, a spine split of less than 1/2, minor water spotting or residue (less than the size of a dime), an impacted corner, and moderate foxing. VG: A comic in VG condition shows some significant wear, but has not accumulated enough total defects to reduce eye appeal to the point that it is not a desirable copy. A VG copy may have an accumulation of minor defects or one or two major ones. Acceptable defects on a VG copy include: Spine roll, 1/2″ to 1″ spine splits or other tears, a cover or centerfold that is detached at one staple, discoloration due to oxidation, and a moderate accumulation of water damage or staining. GD: A GD copy has major defects, but is still complete and readable. A GD copy will have a significant amount of damage, usually an accumulation of smaller defects punctuated with some major defects. Acceptable defects on a GD copy include: A vertical book-length crease, 1.5″-2″ spine split, cover or centerfold completely detached, major tears, heavy discoloration/brittleness due to oxidation, heavy amounts of staining, residue, and water damage. FR: A FR is the lowest grade a comic book can receive as long as the story and art are complete. A FR copy will have virtually no eye appeal and will display major damage. A comic book in FR condition may have non-story elements such as coupons, ad pages, or Marvel Value Stamps cut or torn out of the book. Types of damage that place a comic in FR range include: A spine split of up to 2/3 the length of the book, a missing back cover provided the front cover is still attached, severe water damage or residue damage, mold, and paper deterioration due to oxidation. PR: Comic books in PR condition may be missing up to 4 pages (two spreads) of story pages or display severe damage that affects the readability of the book. A Quick Note On Digital Codes. Publishers may choose to include digital content codes in their comics. Except where noted, we cannot guarantee that comics we sell will contain valid, unused, unexpired digital codes, and we can take no responsibility if a publisher chooses not to allow you to redeem such a code. Additionally, reasonable efforts to redeem this content (in particular, carefully removing a sticker covering codes) are not considered to reduce the grade we would assign the book.
