Grading is subjective. Please check the pictures for reference/description/impression

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE!! If you're not Familiar with Golden agae comics you might think the book is incomplete. See the last Photo where it looks like a page has been cut. This is not the case.
This is what CGC the indpendent grader notes about this:
Comics started as 64 pages + cover (=68). During WW 2, they went down to 56 (+ cover = 60) Some companies did it by shifting to 14 sheets of paper (+ over).
DC did it by keeping 16 sheets of paper but in the back half of the book, removing half of sheets 2, 6, 11, and 15
So the book is 100% complete All copies of Batman #21 have this (and many other golden age books)
