Two recent books, one from Marvel (left) and one from DC (right). Marvel appropriately enough has very large “M” shaped staples while DC has regular staples. What is going on? I looked through several Marvel books and most had these obnoxiously large M staples in them. Remember the oversized “DC 100-page giant” books that had big staples that wore through the cover? If you pack these new Marvel books into a comic box will these massive staples wear through the book? They are heavy gauge and bulkier than usual staples. Crack it open to the middle and check it out.
