Welcome to the Forum

I would go with a 8.5-9.0 based on pics

I am counting at least 5 ticks in spine - one of which is close to a crease
corner ding in bottom corner back corner
bon-color breaking crease top corner
Corner issues both corners bottom front cover

Im thinking a 8.0 - 8.5 at best.. overall looks nice but lots of minor imperfections will drop the grades.

Please don't bend the comics like that for photos. Lay them flat and take photos at an angle so you can see all the bends and waves from the light shadows. Helps to take photos in brightly well lit daytime photos under natural sunlight.

The comic has edgewear and rounded corners. The spine has typical edge wear running along the crease from production or constant rubbing inside a bag/board. This book is most likely a 9.0 but without seeing interior pages or inside FC and BC, it's most likely an 8.0.

Pressing would help flatten out all the wavy bends I see on the center bottom middle edge of front cover. But with the edgewear and corners pressing will not bump the grade much higher than a 1 grade or a .5 of a grade.

Hallo my friends

Thank you very much for all the answers!

My guess wasnt bad 😊

@kaptainmyke thanks for the hint concerning photos 👍

What do mean with pressing? How can i do that?

The interior pages are perfect. I think after „pressing“ it could be a 9.2 nm

Unfortunately I dont see this book breaking into NM territory, but you could get a high very fine out of it. 8.5

Considering the other nonpressable wear I wouldn't consider pressing.

Hmm in my opinion 7.5 is too low?
