Batman #56 Foil is out in stores tomorrow. I had a chance to look through about 100 copies in stores tonight looking for a 9.8 or better, I mean after al, the foil covers will be thicker right? I figured I would grade one at NYCC.
The problem is the covers I saw, about 100 of them, were terrible. The problem is the covers are thin, not thick cover stock but foil applied to what feels like the regular thin cover stock. They dent easily. My finger nail touched one and dented it instantly. Its as if the covers were made from gum foil. I didn’t see nearly as many problems on the other foils, and cannot speak for other stores, but here are some examples of what I saw, and these are the better copies. So if you are grabbing copies tomorrow, good luck!
