(Abbreviated as PR)
The bottom of the barrel. Only the oldest and rarest comics will be worth much of anything when they are in this grade or maybe older comics in good condition with no covers. Most of these are just going to be readers.
For a comic book to be considered, “Poor” it needs to meet the following criteria:
The cover will show major signs of wear.
May have large stains, large amounts of fading, rips, tears, and pieces missing.
Spine will mostly likely be bent and torn.
Staples may be missing.
Large stains and even mold damage.
There may be pages missing.
Marks, tears, and other things that may affect the story.
Pages may be brittle and break at the touch.
Overall:A comic in this condition is just like it sounds, poor. One to avoid unless you absolutely need it to complete a collection or to tide you over until something else comes along.
