    The first 3 issues were reasonably enjoyable, basic fun with...

    It was an 8.0 restored. Since the restoration was just "cover cleaned and cover reinforced" I was quite OK with it - especially since it knocked the price down to about one third of guide.

    For most of the good stuff I paid around 20-25% below guide, so no screaming deals but not bad. I did get some books from dollar boxes though, including some Justice League.

    The JiM 94 was $191, and grades a 7.0. Not exactly cheap, but below guide.

    I like my books to be as pretty as possible, although I have to keep things somewhat reasonable on price.
