Yeah but it would be too big for the cover logo!
Thanks Len.

One more Jumbo rescan tonight: #81!
(it wasn't all that small originally... I was fooled by the file size... forgot it was a 32-pager)

I'm a devout believer in fast editing... my scanner does half the work. I do a 'preview scan' when I start a new comic, which the scanner then uses to automatically adjust brightness & contrast. Then there's a setting to automatically square-up the images. So I just have to do a quick trim, flip(if necessary) & save 'em.
This comic was a pain mainly because of where the staples are; many scans end up with no border at the spine, or even with a sliver of art cut off. I've removed staples before from low-cost issues (coverless &/or incomplete), but I couldn't from this one.

I've done that a few times myself to center a page.  Removing the staples then putting them back in is not that hard to do if your careful.

Putting the staples back works ok for 32-48 pagers; 64s it gets tricky, but on a 96-page square-bound with pages that were also glued in?

Meanwhile, back at the scanning ranch...
one more Jungle rescan for this month: #135! (except non-cover ads & text); HAG fc added.
And, i need the help of the Great Wizards behind the curtain at DCM once again to remove the oldie! Thx!
