Ultimate Spider-man #104 White Retailer Incentive Variant CGC 9.6 Signature Series Signed comic book, from Marvel Comics, which is signed by Brian Michael Bendis, this series' writer who also wrote the Ultimate Spider-man US cartoon TV series, signed by Joe Quesada, Marvel Editor In Chief, and signed by Mark Bagley the series and cover artist on the back cover where he has inked a huge Spider-man head sketch.
This is original artwork by a professional Marvel Comics artist, not a pre-printed cover image.
Retailers had to order 100 copies of the standard comic to get just one of these white variant editions. A handful of these were created back in 2007 and none are documented as having changed hands in the last 10 years!
It has been professionally graded by CGC, the largest independent comic grading company in the world, and slabbed in a sealed protective case.
The grade is guaranteed to be investment grade 9.6 (NEAR MINT+) and this is a yellow label CGC Signature Series, which means that an authorised CGC representative witnessed the signings and sketching and this also acts as a Certificate Of Authenticity. As soon as the comic is signed, it is removed by a CGC authorised party and submitted straight to CGC for grading and encapsulation, guaranteeing the authenticity of the signatures and the artwork.
You can check the validity of this item and the signatures and sketch by entering the 10 digit number on the label at the CGC web-site at www.cgccomics.com
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare is just reflection of the scanner on the CGC plastic outer case.
