Hero Restoration Results - Thoughts?6962

Collector iggykoopa30 private msg quote post Address this user
I’d never used Hero Restoration prior to this submission but they came highly recommended when I first posted a picture of my copy of Giant Sized X-Men #1. Sent it back in May and just got it back this afternoon. I’m very pleased with the way it turned out. I didn’t notice the differences until I put the pictures side by side. Have a look and see! What do you think about the results?? As is customary, the before shot is on the left side.

It looks like they didn't do much of anything to me. Of course, I'm used to a before and after from CFP Comics.

Forgot to mention, yes, it was a press only. No cleaning (I have a guy that does cleaning for me).

I thought when you get it pressed the cleaning is included.

There is a fast press option that skips cleaning

As far as pressing, Mike has done good work the few times I've submitted to him.

The pressing job is solid. Great improvement on the spine. You can't clean stains with dry cleaning methods.

I sent my Walking Dead 1 to Hero Restoration...was maybe an 8.0 at best when I sent it to him, he got it and did his thing, sent it to CBCS and it came back a 9.4. I highly recommend him.

Just curious, why split up the work?

Nobody better to press and clean a book than a restoration expert imo

Yesterday when I posted this I was second guessing myself on whether or not I paid to have it dry cleaned as well and I thought that I didn't... this morning I'm going through and looking at old emails and turns out I did pay for it. So now I'm following up to see if the book actually was dry cleaned as ordered. I realize that some stains just won't come out but I would think the big one on the back would be a prime candidate. I'll let you know what he says.

The book is deeply soiled, I would not be surprised if your results do reflect a thorough dry cleaning

@shrewbeer I agree with you. I think he's going to come back and say that he tried but it's too deeply soiled.

It looks like it’s been dry cleaned to me. Dry cleaning is not going to remove stains, especially the one on the bottom back cover which looks like it has mold/mildew spots in addition to the discoloration.

FYI - Yep he said it had been dry cleaned but the stains are too deeply soiled. I'm pleased with the pressing job, though! Turned out great.

Mike at HeroResto pressed my AF 15 and HoS 92 and did a fantastic job. Highly recommend.
