With Line Drawn covers; these were discontinued around issue #80, when CI adopted only painted cover art for the remainder of its publication run. The great majority of this collection --over 136-- are graded VG/EX/Nr Mint condition. 25 are graded G/G+; 7 are graded FR;1 is graded PR. (SEE BELOW brief description of condition for each issue).
There is, of course, some foxing in a collection this old but very rarely is it a factor in the condition of a comic. Again, all ARE COMPLETE, lie flat, retain their color and are free of spine roll. Similarly, except for 2-3 this is a set where issues are well-attached to spines and are relatively tear-free. By-and-large it is a collection that is in excellent condition, given its age. All issues are bagged and boarded with their HRN recorded on the rear of each board (a few on the front).
Virtually all pages are white to cream with only a handful having any degree of cover separation. Those comics whose HRNs are listed in bold italics are 1st editions. The notation (L) refers to the issues with line drawn covers.
