That's what I thought too. I really don't want to deal with a return so I'm Triple checking before I contact the guy I bought it from.

Read it and see if the story seems abrupt or off

@HulkSmash google "Grand Comics Database" and search your book. The page number will be listed near the top.

@Jesse_O
It says 36 pages.

@Davethebrave
Story seems coherent.

In theory, I would have to be missing 2 pages to miss the count. The only way I can see that happening is if the center 2 pages were missing.

I looked at pictures of another book and the centerfold pictures matches.

Do you count the covers when counting pages?

@Bronte

Your TOS 77 should have a front and back cover which counts as 4 pages. Then 8 wraps(a wrap is a single sheet of paper folded to form four pages of story counting both sides) which counts as 32 pages for a total of 36 pages. To do a page count start with wrap 1 and count to the centerfold. There should be 8 on each side of the centerfold.

Thank you. I did not count the covets as pages. That seems to be my error. Thank you for clarification

Can anyone tell me if this back cover constitutes a rejection due to overhang?

Yeah, I figured. I tried working it out a little bit but by the time all that overhang got flattened and the book lied how it wanted to, it got worse.

If a guy isn't a religious,(afterlife) fella, they kinda gotta stick with that they aren't or else they are a hypocrite. I mean, thats what a friend told me.

So. If I understand this right, ghosts never made it to heaven or hell, they just hang out on earth and that's because they haven't figured out where to go?

When I went to church when I was a kid, there was something called holy trinity. Father, son, and holy ghost. So by default, if you are Christian, you have to believe in ghosts? That's interesting, I never thought of that before....

As for if only humans can be ghosts, I hope not. I know a few pet owners who would love to be reacquainted with their fur babies.

Ghosts (or spirits) are real. Anything with a spirit (or soul) can be a ghost. I personally believe that animals have souls. Therefore, animals can be ghosts IMO.

Your opinion was all I needed. It kinda sucked telling my buddy that about his baby was all.

Edit; looking at the back cover would almost give someone vertigo. everything was printed crooked or the cover was cut crooked, or it was wrapped crooked? I still don't know. Something Ive never really run across.

I think the over hang is extreme enough to prevent slabbing, but if your “buddy” doesn’t regularly submit; you could maybe do a joint sub. If his/hers cannot be slabbed then it comes back with yours. No harm no foul; everyone is happy(ish) and maybe he/she chips in for shipping?
