Chew #34 Puts Three Covers On One Comic And Invites You To Cut It Up With Scissors
This is the cover of Chew #34. One of three covers. But you don;t have to buy all three, they all come bound around one version. And you get to cut along the dotted line and mix and match the faces underneath...
I think CGC should ge=ive extra grades for anyone who does so. It is the creator's intent after all...

Ah! Like the idea, but nobody who wants to keep it's grade will do it- what they should have done is die-cut it already, thus being able to play with it while keeping it minty fresh...

Anyone buying a comic as great as Chew merely to stick it in a bag and hope that its value increases enough to offset the initial outlay and subsequent storage costs is missing out.

But issue #34 of Chew was projected to become INCREDIBLY valuable! Why, in a few years it might be worth 10-15 cents over cover price in NM condition!

No no, I'm all for that! I'm talking about other kids fussing over grades. Fuck the slabbing bastards. But... I'd rather have a machine cut cover I can fool around with than one that I screw up too badly. That Superman comic that came out a few years ago with the little reusable stickers with Lobo? Mine is dirty and bent all to hell, but I'm glad I didn't have to cut them all out myself. And gradewise, it still makes sense to at least vaguely care about a comic? Just because it's not an investment doesn't mean you should feel obliged to wipe your arse with it. Although there are are some comics I would be more than happy to (if the paper wasn't so slick).

What, nobody buys two copies anymore? One for cutting up and one for bagging & boarding?

Why stop with just the cover? Make the entire issue one where you can mix and match the three parts on each page!
