Ok, up front honest, I got this for 50% off due to a coupon. That being said, it's pretty awesome.
Before I get into the review, this is how I gauge things, 1 star = horrible ripoff.
2 stars means it's functional, but could be better, and I regret the purchase.
3 stars means I got what I paid for, and I am ok with it.
4 stars means I got what I paid for, I love it and they went above and beyond in something.
5 stars means the item is amazing, and an incredible value, and you won't regret owning it. The company is just flat out amazing.
I grew up with these guys, and I miss the old designs and storylines from when I was a kid. I don't really enjoy comics much nowadays due to the short page length and the just... weird plots they run with.
Overall the print quality is nothing short of perfect. No runs, bleeds, etc. It really is a work of art.
The only reason I am knocking a star off is the edges of the print showed up with a few tiny tears. Nothing major (shy of 1/4"), and the packing job was nothing short of bulletproof. I don't know HOW the tears happened, but they aren't visible in the frame I used, so it's kinda moot.
Great packing, AMAZING print, and incredibly fast shipping. Even if I didn't have the coupon, I'd still rank it 4 stars due to the quality.
