I have a question.

I have a Marvel Spotlight #4, 1972, starring Werewolf by Night. I'd say it is VERY GOOD condition.



The comic has some kind of ink stain on it. The ink stain covers the top and bottom edge of the book and spills partly onto the back cover and a little onto the front of the book. You can see it over the .20 c on the front, and on the back it can be seen the most on the upper right corner, but it goes pretty much around the whole thing.



My question is, what is this ink from? Is it a printers defect?

I'm just gonna toss a theory out there. It looks like a current size book was on it and something poured onto it and only the very edge caught the spill. Great book though.

Books that weren't sold were sometimes used for promo purposes. To make sure they weren't returned later for credit they would get inked like that. They would have a whole box of books and would just paint/ink the tops of the books, or bottoms if upside down in the box. That's what it looks like to me.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

I got a quick question for all of the super awesome gurus out there. What books are must haves for a collection that aren't too expensive?

I wear a mask. And that mask, it's not to hide who I am, but to create what I am.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "not too expensive" but here is a short list of comics stories that are very widely read and highly regarded that you can get for what I would consider relatively cheap.:

Crisis on Infinite Earths
Secret Wars
Cerebus
The Great Darkness Saga of Legion of Superheroes
Batman: Knightfall
