Giant-Size X-Men #1 Comic Pressing

GSX1 029

This Giant Size X-Men exhibited a very rare defect. The paper had bubbled out on both sides of the the paper, causing the paper to separate internally. It is speculated to be caused by a organic solvent splashing onto the surface. Removing this type of defect is difficult, especially in the middle of the cover. Fortunately, with our advanced pressing techniques we were able to completely remove the defects. Speaking of which, one of our clients asked me, Mike, why do you take the pictures in such bright light, and at a low angle. I explained to him that I want everyone to see there is no trace of the defect after pressing, taking pictures in lower light, or from top down steep angle hides slight defects, and misleads readers.
