It is missing the cover and a number of pages as detailed below. ALL missing pages have been replaced with high quality scans printed on paper that is very similar to vintage newsprint, close to feel and texture. However, the colors might be SLIGHTLY off/different/darker. Please look closely at the pictures provided.

12th page/leaf/the Mr. Fantastic pin up and an ad page missing - replaced with a color scan and reattached with archival tape..
. The remaining original pages are off-white to white. The first wrap was split, detached and loose; it has been reattached with archival tape. The first page/leaf is a little torn andfrayed along the edges. The second wrap has some tape repairs along the inside spine. .All covers and pages have been reattached using the original staples.
Being coverless and incomplete, the grade is Poor(0.1), the lowest grade possible. However, the comic is still readable and looks quite presentable.

I am using my experience to grade and provide the essential scans and descriptions for you to properly assess the condition of the item.
