Hi everyone, This Journey Into Mystery #83 needed a little bit of everything. An unhealthy amount of tape was removed, along with a moderate amount of amateur color touch (existing color touch was main motivation to have restoration work done). Then there were extra staples, pieces missing, and a little art missing as well. Pages needed work too, and it was requested to have them lightened. Employing the “less is more” method was difficult in some areas, the reds were in bad shape, and the word bubble dark blue also once the amateur color touch was removed. I think we found a good balance between the books grade, while keeping as much natural look and feel as possible.
