CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 484 10 hoursAndyRexia (2446): You might be waiting a while.
CBCS Turnaround 12/15/2017 Jake_Fleming 168 1 daybige31 (175): @devoided handling a comic that is getting signed is risky. My brother had a near mint inhumans 1 that got signed by Stan Lee and the company that we were using that was the facilitator picked it up took it out the bag then when they went to put it back in bent the crap out of it he looked at us and said sorry and it came back an 8.5, so it’s a part of it.

So....How do you like the forum here.... SteveBorock 405 3 monthsBabaLament (448): Hello all! Is there a problem w/ the forum webpage? I'm trying to upload photos, the yellow "Uploading Photo" icon comes up, and then a whole lot of nothing. I've tried in IE & Chrome. Please let me know if this is a known thing. Thanks!
The CBCS Difference Michael 158 3 monthsbluesix (7): I have to agree that it will take some time for CBCS to grow as a company to the level of CGC. The comic book community on YouTube have done quite a number of comparison videos between CGC, CBCS and PGX. All had good and bad opinions about all three and are based on their own personal experiences with all three companies. I think what it boils down to is personal experience and each experience will be different based on the circumstances going...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 6 monthsJesse_O (4183): What is "Processing"? On your account dashboard, any invoice that has been received will read "processing" until the order has been shipped. To find out what stage your comics are at, click on the invoice number. There, if your comics read "processing", it means that your comics have not entered the grading phase yet. Once they HAVE entered "grading", you can follow the comics through the different...
A Moment of Clarity Michael 184 11 monthsDarthLego (20488): There may come a point where CBCS needs to make a tough decision and cut losses with this site. If the code is such a mess, starting over from scratch will be faster, easier, cheaper.

pre FF#1 Stan Lee books JustABitEvil 19 3 hoursX51 (4426): It's become pretty obvious to EC collectors. Some Canadian EC collectors have been looking for the issues they are missing for a long time.
Stan Lee signing obiwan1971 9 4 hoursLewdog (7): Yeah I'm pretty sure he's deaf. I caught the tail end of an interview with him talking about the movie Pumping Iron.

Turned 40 Steverogers11 27 5 hoursconditionfreak (8296): Harland Sanders started KFC at age 62. The business failed and a few years later he started it up again. Amazingly he sold it for two million dollars. But kept the rights to the franchises in Canada for himself, and became a paid spokesman for the U.S. market at the same time. He did not like what the buyers of the U.S. market did with "his" restaurant. He thought they let the quality go down.

Fake cover site for YEARS for fans det_tobor 11 6 hoursdet_tobor (757): Because everything was bleek and dirty and dark, the only thing it might need would be a sound effect...The gate being ripped off the wall.
Cover Contest Week 76:Non-fictional Charact Helric1 62 6 hoursX51 (4426): I voted for yours and it's a cool book.
Signatures on slabs instead conditionfreak 21 6 hoursDJC_II (253): Yes, I do know what you are saying, however, if people get into the habit of buying sigs on cases, authenticated or otherwise, it will develop a fad or genre of collecting, prompting others to start getting sigs on cases themselves, opening up this whole ball of wax I would much rather just avoid.
Grading Question QuaBrot 20 6 hoursQuaBrot (592): @CopperAgeKids wow - great memory! Yes, that was me. I haven't sent anything in for grading (or pressing) since then - I keep buying and don't have the money to press/grade. Built up a nice pile of books for Joe and the 3rd party graders!
Ring of the Nibelung Pre_Coder 7 6 hoursLonestar (913): I bought those ROTN comics back when they came out. They're in a long box somewhere. Didn't realize they ever adapted the opera into a movie. For anyone not familiar with ROTN, you probably know some of the music. Most famous is "Ride of the Valkyries", which was used in a scene in Apocalypse Now. But if you are like me, you know it and other music from Wagner's ROTN from the classic Bugs Bunny cartoon, "What's Opera Doc"....

Walking Dead #1: White/Black label Newsstand therealtimmyp 2 11 hoursSteveRicketts (5182): They were only direct. There are no newsstand copies. In my experience, the black and white "Mature Readers" are pretty close to even. The black might be slightly less common. Maybe like 60/40 or so.

New to Your Collection Thread #2 Foghorn_Sam 800 1 dayEtkt (64): Just an observation for JustABitEvil in Post 785. I noticed there is a "star" near the 15 cent label on your Avengers 87. I was an Air Force brat back in the late 60s at Bitburg Air Force Base in Germany. I have many comics from that era with the same "star." It signified, I believe, that the comic was from a Base Exchange (BX), i.e., the Armed Forces Exchange. Not sure where your comic originated specifically, but...

Cincinnati Comic Expo 2018 Hexigore 7 2 daysHexigore (235): I agree that Cincy does well with guests. I would just like to see more non-contemporary guests in the lineup. Guests such as Steranko or Williamson or Perez would be nice. Layton was pretty cool to meet last year.
KARATE KID SERIES OGJackster 12 2 daysthe420bandito (163): Karate Kid 3 was the thinnest plot ever yet I still liked it. "Ostracised villain John Kreese attempts to gain revenge on Daniel and Miyagi, with the help of a Vietnam War comrade, the wealthy owner of a toxic waste disposal business." The joke was always..hey let's kill someone over the All Valley Karate Tournament...
