Here at Things From Another World we offer two different categories of purchases for item condition on our site: New and Nick & Dent
Nick & Dent purchases are new items that may have minor damage such as dings, creases, or small tears to the outer cover or package that take the item out of a brand new condition. These items still make great readers copies or display figures however, and are offered at a considerable discount from the regular retail price. All items within our Nick & Dent category will be specifically listed as such in the product name to ensure that these items are clearly indicated for condition. Check out our help section for Nick & Dent purchases for additional information on this category, as well as examples of some of the damages to items in this category.
All other items sold on our site are categorized as being in brand new condition, and are guaranteed to be in Very Fine (VF) condition or better for grading. You can check out complete information regarding comic condition on the Comic Grading section of our help pages. Please be aware that as our distributor does not guarantee all new copies will be individually shrink wrapped we are unable to guarantee whether our copies will be shrink wrapped or not, however all non-Nick & Dent books are guaranteed to be in a new and undamaged condition.
If an item not specifically indicated as a Nick & Dent purchase ever arrives outside of the stated VF condition or better please Contact Us so that we can assist in getting things resolved for you!
