Help grading a mag (Heavy Metal)16273

Collector TexasNoob private msg quote post Address this user
Stumbled onto this today and the price was a no-brainer. Not really experienced grading magazines... Wondering what others would put this as, and if a press might help the issue on the top spine corner.

Thanks!

you may be looking at a 6.5 - 7.0, you've got some color-breaking creases and paper loss

That’s a tough black cover. A quick glance suggests scuffing and a possible dog-ear.

Very Iconic cover from the Animated movie.

Without seeing in hand I think the mag looks pretty nice and with a press possibly pulls an 8.0 -8.5

Is this book worth anything? I actually have this somewhere , I bought it years ago because I liked the cover.

Even with a press and cleaning my best guess is a 8 to 8.5

eBay sold is showing anywhere from $50 for mid-grade to $300 for VF+ raw, but there's not a ton of higher end copies sold.

The two issues that precede this one also do ok, due to a Stephen King short story and a behind the scenes on the movie.
