How about those 100 page giants which seem to have an inch or longer cut on the BC that is straight. It looks like it was from the trimming but why?




Do you mean shaped like this?

I have seen quite a number of not-90 degree cuts! Yet the spine is nice and aligned. Just the top/bottom that is not so nicely aligned!




Yep. Very common flaw in almost every comic era.
It's just a misaligned blade/blades during trimming.

No, it's just a straight vertical cut on the BC usually around an inch long from the bottom and around an inch away from the spine.

(Red line being the cut you are describing?)

Actually move the red line to the right hand side, since it's on the back cover near the spine.

Yup...exactly. I know that it must be from the production because I've seen it on the BC of many 100 pagers and never the front. Plus, it's always straight so it must be from a blade.

I don't know for sure, but I'll see if I can find out.

It doesn't set up hard like nail polish.

Dice, that is an interesting observation. I know a LOT of, especially, Atlas books from the 50's, often exhibit absolutely blinding richness of the inks. I tend to attribute this to an ink combination that had some VERY dense coverage (like a 100M/100C) etc. But adding the potentail for the inks to setup "hard like nail polish" makes me think back to my gem cutting days. The harder the stone, the brighter the polish. A soft stone never could really produce a mirror finish. Turquoise, for example, can be on the flat side. But the turquoise from tibet, where the mineral was impregnated with silicone, resulting in a very hard stone, took an amazing polish.

I have to wonder if this aspect of the ink's setup qualities, in combination with dense coverage, could have produced those incredibly deep and highly REFLECTIVE qualities?

Thoughts?
