|I just bought that comic because I wanted an inexpensive GA Batman that looked vintage. I don't mind this kind of repair, and I don’t plan on selling it, but how much the value is affected? And does collectors avoid this kind of repair?
(As a French speaker, I hope everything is clear and comprehensive)

|I'm wondering how it can be married and detached at the same time. I understand that it isn't the original cover, but if it isn't technically attached, how can it be married?|

|@DrWatson if I make it out correctly, the label says: "Front cover married. Front and back covers detached." So ... is just the front cover from another comic? That's kind of the way I read that.|

As for the OP: Many collectors do avoid that level of damage and tape is often a problem. But if you're happy with the book and planning to keep it for your own collection, nothing else matters.

|I just made my first purchase of something similar...I decided I wanted the book AND everything is out of control price-wise...so why not? I have no regrets and nor should you...enjoy!
and mine even had the centerfold trimmed before it was married, so yours is even better than mine

|I'd buy it if I had a gap to fill in a run. I have 0.5 graded copies of books that used to be blanks in runs. I'd buy them to fill the blanks when I didn't want to spend huge dollars on those keys.|
