I have a wide ranging comics collection dating from approx. 1985-2010.
Comics have all been stored bagged and in long boxes, significant issues have been stored with backing boards.
For fans of Deapool this is one of the most important comics, his first appearance, in New Mutants #98 from 1991, written by Fabian Nicieza with art by Rob Liefield.
Comic has been read, and in storage for 20+ years and is in very good condition. Will be posted wrapped in card for protection during transit.
Please see all photos which are of the actual item you are buying.

I have been asked about the condition of this comic based on standard comic grading guides.
I have no experience of formal comic grading, hence my general description above of the item as very good.
Based on the guidelines provided on ebay, to my eye I would say this copy is probably F to VF in the 6.0 to 8.0 range.
It appears to me that the only notable defect is some light creasing (not a 'fold') on the top right of the pages starting about half-way through the book, with the back cover showing the most evidence. The crease ranges from approx 1/4-inch across the top by 1-inch down the edge of the page though to 1-inch across the top by 3-inches down the page at it's worst on the back cover. I emphasise they are 'soft creases' much less noticeable on the front face of the page than the rear face, and there is no colour break in the creasing to the back cover.
I have added a few photographs below to try and show the extent of this defect.
In regard to other grading criteria I can see there is evidence of age in the colour of the paper, I would not claim the pages are white.
Other than mentioned above there are no discernible marks or wear from reading and there are no tears or writing on the inside pages. I think I probably only read it once.
The bag and board are standard quality (rather than archival quality) and the long box has been stored in a cupboard in the dark so it will have been exposed to minimal light during the intervening period.
You can tell from looking at the corners, edges and spine in the photos that the cover is in good condition which can be a fair indicator that it has not been handled or read excessively.
I hope this is of some use.
