@vacaboca

@Despain is on the right track there; taking a stapler to it is not restoration or conservation. It's treated like tape, just another defect to the grade 👍🏻

@shrewbeer would you remove the staple before submission?

With a story like that, nope. Doesnt sound like you would sell the book anyways. I did all kinds of taping as a kid to my GL#1 and sent it as-is without removal. Think I even drew on it with a pencil in a few spots, but didnt want a presser removing that either. Memories, man!

Thanks for the advice - I agree. This definitely wouldn't be for selling... Ideally I'd get a double-slab frame and display them together. Maybe I'll submit them later this year... certainly if I do it will all be posted here

I think an added staple left in is more desirable than removing it, right?

@drchaos - Believe it or not, both Topps and Zen published Barbi Twins comics in the 1990's!

@Watcher - Could that be THE issue that got the "fire" started?

So far we have an early leader with three votes (it says four but someone voted on it twice) and five other covers with one vote each.

Get those votes in before its too late.

The Hulk was very tempting but TomaHawk was too classic to pass up. Found this one after I had already submitted:

Wow... I've been largely offline traveling to SDCC, and now having stayed up way too late after day one, I see that I won... very cool. I really need to go to sleep - my east coast brain is completely confused...

I'll try to post a new contest before I go to sleep, otherwise I'll be behind the schedule... stay tuned.
