There may large amounts of wear including fading, discoloration, and stains.
Coupons may be cut from the cover.
Less than 1/12 of the cover missing is accepted.
Major wear accepted.
Staples may be missing.
The spine may be split up to 2/3rds of the cover.
The pages are often faded, discolored, torn, or stained, but must still be readable.
Most of the page should not be brittle.
Overall:Near the bottom of the barrel. Comics in this condition are still readable. Pages missing from the comic are not acceptable.
