Daredevil #1

This book was previously restored by an amateur.  I had to remove some glue along the spine as well as some color touch.  Since this had to be done, my client decided to fully restore it.    You will see various stages of restoration.
Cleaning the cover, humidifcation and pressing.
Reinforcing the spine with Japanese tissue from top to bottom as well as filling in any holes along spine and edges.
Color touch along interior and exterior of cover.
Lots of detail in creased, mended areas of front cover and back.
Each individual page pressed to remove any spine roll.
Restored cover re-assembled onto interior using original staples and book pressed intact.

The one and only 1953 Marilyn Monroe Playboy #1. Cover very dirty and spine had several creases and dings as well as large crease at the lower right corner of the book.

Batman 1 page and Detective 44

Batman page was severely creased and it took a long time to unfold those areas. Very careful manipulation with jewelry tweezers and then ironing out each crease.  Lots of tears as well but client did not want conservation.  Page was also soiled so a lot of dry cleaning necessary along margins and some pencil overlay.   Love Golden Age candidates for pressing.  They are heavy and solid books.  Nice to bring it back to its true form.

Journey Into Mystery #83

Previously restored book when it came to me.  First thing I noticed was the very faded cover which is unfortunate as there is really nothing I can do about that. It was a bad job so it was screaming to be healed!  Tried to undo the resto as best as possible w/o losing any pieces.  Needed to remove some old color touch and piece fills that did not match up.  Full restoration.  Cleaning, humidification, pressing, spine rebuilding, pieces added and color touch, interior and exterior. CGC graded it a 7.0 MP and if it weren't for the very faded cover, I do think it would have graded higher.
