I am helping a friend sell his comic book collection and all are from the 1950's and earlier. This is the last batch of books for sale--see completed auctions for the other ones sold. This auction is for a 1954 DC NATIONAL COMICS BATMAN FEB # 81. This is a nice early copy. Based on the grading system below I would think this book is at least in the Very Good category. The cover retains gloss. It is nice and flat. Has two small tight tears(approx 1/2 " on green Batman logo and approx 1/4" near tracotr). Corners are straight with small 1/16th " piece missing top left. Cover has a crease running across the bottom of the page--about a 1/2 "up from the bottom--more noticeable from the inside. Spine is complete with normal wear. Inside pages are in very good condition with no rips, tears, writing or water damage. Pages still white with a little tanning. The pages have tiny holes on the very bottom of the page beginning at page 11 and lasting for about 10 pages--all the books seem to be made the same. It does not affect the graphics or writing. The back cover is in great shape (also has a great advertising for DAISY guns and only has two very small stains.---no rips or tears. This is a nice vintage copy. Any questions please email. Please check my other auctions. Shipping is $4.00 within cont USA. Insurance extra based on selling price. ... read more
