Dang nab it!
I am SO tired of having my Marvel comic books loose the centerfold because the lower stapple rips through the paper.
You can HEAR it happen as you flip through the book reading, and spread the pages.
Why can't MARVEL insist that the printer use a higher quality paper or stapple?
Does this current trend mean there will be high demand for books that do NOT have a missing centerfold page? Or one who's stapple has NOT YET ripped free? I hope not. That would make grading of books even more confusing!
I would pay a slight bit more or even tolerate those stupid cards stappled into the book, if only they would appear in the centerfold under the stapple and act to strengthen the book!
MARVEL, ARE YOU LISTENING????!!!!
