Universe X Spidey #1 Dynamic Forces Sketch Variant Edition CGC 9.6 Signature Series comic book, from Marvel Comics, which has been signed by Al Milgrom, the story inker who was fired, then quietly rehired, for his slanderous comments in the recalled editions!
Milgrom has also sketched some original artwork onto the cover in the form of a Spidey head sketch.

According to the CGC Census there are no higher graded CGC Signature Series examples of this book and this is 1 of only 2 copies graded 9.6. It is not clear if the other copy is sketched or not...
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+) with White Pages and this is a yellow label CGC Signature Series, which means that an authorised CGC representative witnessed the signing and sketch 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 signature and sketch.
You can check the validity of this item and the signature and sketch by entering the 10 digit number on the label at the CGC comics web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. The glare is just the scanner on the thick CGC case, which can cause reflection.
