Rat Chew3452

Collector keefriffhards private msg quote post Address this user
There are many things that a comic can be graded on (I am discovering, reading my new Overstreet Guide)... however 'Rat Chew' was not an item I expected, for some reason, if a book has 'Rat Chew' listed I might choose another similarly graded book (without the chews) maybe even mildew stains (not sure if this exists). So sad that the first place all comics went shortly after someone left home as a kid was either in the attic, in the basement, or in the trash.

I would rather take rat chew over mildew damaged or moldy books any day.

I guess rat chew is stable, mold isn't...

And bookworms, let's not forget those classic little pests!

So let's get my dream label "Insect infestation, rat chew lower right edge, bookworm holes and mildew stains'.

I look forward to that.

Only if it's Batman #1, Action Comics #1 or Detective Comics #38...

Why would a rat be drawn to chew on a comic book anyway? Greasy Cheeseburger fingerprints?

Maybe they get bored? I wonder what an Action Comics #1 tastes like...

They use the shavings for bedding.

Hulk is my favorite character, so I'm pleased to own any copy. I tell people it's the best low grade copy that money could buy.
