Grading comic books is both an art and a science. This is intended to be a basic guide so that you have a general idea of the grade of your books for pricing purposes. There are grades in between these basic grades such as Fine/Very Fine, but we want this to be a general easy-to-follow comic grading guide for the novice.
We recommend that you get a copy of the Overstreet Price Guide (the pricing bible) in order to price your books. Send us scans if you need help or advice. To firstname.lastname@example.org
A note about restoration: Books that have been restored by color touch, replaced staples etc., have much less value, so please don’t be tempted to fix up your comics. A low grade copy of a very sought after book might benefit from professional restoration from a respected conservator like Susan Cicconi of The Restoration Lab.
