Changes to ASP: AWs Please read spaulus 76 14 daysKatKomics (2107): Clarification on mechanics/steps I have my approved AW form from Mr. Roman (check!) - when getting my books signed I inform the artists that I am AW for CBCS (check!) - do I have to have my on-line order form pre-filed/payed so if they want to initial the paper work they can? Or do I just get books signed then fill out order forms to send in with my books later? Only asking as the # of books I get signed may change depending on how much I've...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 10 monthsJesse_O (5140): 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...

WTB He-Man... OGJackster 3 6 minutesOGJackster (4906): I don't do Grindr. "Grindr for Equality is an ever-evolving mission to promote justice, health, safety, and more for LGBTQ individuals around the globe." Nothing about comics LOL!
Submitted books changing processing tiers? thelastbard 30 7 minutesCopperAgeKids (3217): Prices on NM 98 are all over the place. I sold a raw VF at the Big Apple for $225, or $240, a month back. 2 years ago, I got $200 + shipping for a raw 5.0...and another $200 + shipping for another raw 5.0. Both BIN's. Blue 9.8's are selling at about $900 or so. High sale for a blue 9.8 this year is $1499....which was direct edition copy , not even a newsstand copy. Low sale was $320.....which is amazing. Hell, a direct copy CGC SS...

My ebay shop - New ID poka 63 47 minutespoka (6457): Status up now. On boarding was ok (took 2 weeks from comics were received) but had to ask them to amend 3 listings as they forgot that they were Signature series which they had omitted. Sold 1 out of 26 after 2 weeks. So far not something I could not have done through my own shop
For Anyone Doing Business With Brain Trust MarcJ 95 1 hourpoka (6457): The was I read the apology there was no 300+ extra weight of comics on the plane. Think he stated that everything (except handcarfy) was shipped ahead by courier? Did I miss something?
Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer OGJackster 23 1 hourHammitChris (187): I'm going to see this movie only because of Emilia Clarke...love her! Woody Harrelson and Paul Bettany are good actors too, IMO. I don't expect it to be great, just going into it with an open mind.
Color Touch Removal anyone? KingNampa 21 1 hourjrs (1750): The person who color touched that Daredevil book did a pretty good job!

Awesome yard sale find!!!! antoniofett 8 4 hoursantoniofett (766): Ha ha you’re right I never stopped to think about that I guess it’s possible!
New to your collection #3 Jesse_O 311 4 hoursBrianGreensnips (3094): @kaptainmyke I have to agree with @00slim David Tennant as Killgrave "killed it" Best Netflix Marvel villian so far "HANDS DOWN" I recommend it.
TV Happenings OGJackster 63 5 hoursLonestar (1024): The Expanse (canceled by SyFy) will be picked up by amazon for season 4. clickable text I liked the first season. Seasons 2 & 3 were OK at best. http://forum.cbcscomics.com/cached/1e045f76c20f0a87608419b5618be7ce.jpg

#UniteTheHeard ... also: Aquaman! JLS_Comics 4 6 hoursThemaxx35 (1861): I don't understand the need for the bulky armor. It makes it look like the character can't be agile or fast. Momoa is intimidating enough on his own, the armor just detracts. IMO of course.

FS Hunt for Wolverine #1 1:500 kubert poka 28 23 hourspoka (6457): Bindery ticks yes - spine ticks - no. Care to share pics?
Well, my wife solved my "too many comics" pr conditionfreak 24 1 day3JJr (7): #1 impediment to 300s in 9.8: that right edge. The majority are cut so the edge is actually deckled/fluted, almost like the teeth on the edge of a saw blade. It's a production issue, but IMO a point deductible flaw. It's the modern age equivalent of Silver age books with right edge chips, likewise a production issue, but defectively damaging to the book as if it were a flaw of wear.
Newsstand Edition v. Direct designations DocBrown 67 1 dayshrewbeer (10840): Now that is an excellent question. While they wont label it as newsstand, surely they would note the price difference. They notice it on canadian pricing... If nobody has an answer, I do have a few post-2000 that are worth sending in for testing
Best and Worst Surprise Grade? Themaxx35 37 1 dayFoghorn_Sam (3133): Holy cr@p, that is seriously screwed up! This just seems to prove the grading has gotten waaaaay too tight across the street as some have been complaining of as of late.
grading questions drchaos 13 1 daydrchaos (8704): The first book is a comic from the late 60s or early 70s. The second book is a magazine from the 1960s.
Avengers Next Movie MAJOR SPOILER LEAKED GanaSoth 7 1 dayGanaSoth (496): @JustThatGuy haha. I know right. Don't forget about Bullwinkle & Rockey Balboa. Oh yeah, and Apollo Creed becomes the new Falcon!
Immortal Hulk #1 - Frankie's Comics Hulk 181 GanaSoth 39 1 daySavage_Spawn (1555): Well as long as there is a market the reprints and variants will continue to be produced. And hey, were I a fast furious fickle fingered flipper I'd be right there in the mix. It's a legitimate way to bang a buck and I'm all for free enterprise, capitalism, apple pie and all that jazz. It's similar to the earlier action comics/AMS15 multiple reprint issues which I've collected a whole batch of over the years. And yup I'll eventually sell most...
Spider-Man Homecoming Sequel Rumor: MYSTERIO 00slim 13 1 dayJLS_Comics (4210): Good choice for a villain. I've been wanting either Mysterio or Kraven to show up in a Spidey movie.

What if I have comics already signed? Ladic 5 2 daysGotlift (25): On the comic submission page the is a box you check for exactly that. It says Encapsulate even it verification fails
Best "keys" to get for under $400 Enelson 44 2 daysCopperAgeKids (3217): That listing is flat out ridiculous. Besides the fact that the seller wants $200 for a raw copy of a BS self appointed "pedigree collection", I really....nah, that's pretty much it. Really just surprised to see a seller in Florida hawking a "pedigree collection" drivel...that "originated" in a town about 4 miles from my home, in Cherry Hill NJ. If anything remotely resembling a pedigree collection magically...
The Golden Age of comics The_Watcher 1749 2 daysCatmanAmerica (4543): http://i1225.photobucket.com/albums/ee392/DavidMerryweather/GA%20Comic%20HP%20scans/Comic%20related%20HP%20scans/d0ab9706-67fc-4c94-aa57-707a9b2e02cf_zpsv3zqjgm8.jpg :beer::)
A guideline to CPR'ing CGC slabs CopperAgeKids 17 2 daysCopperAgeKids (3217): Ah...doh. That didn't register with me. And btw, I don't think cracking red labels is neccesarily a good idea.... especially on moderns.
Key Issues CaptainCanuck 8 2 days00slim (3796): I sell a couple things a week & rarely get them. Wish I got more, that’s for sure.
Mysterio is villain in next Spider-man Enelson 12 2 daysWraith (502): agree.. Donnie darko is a personal favourite
Chris Claremont this weekend... thelastbard 16 2 daysthelastbard (1138): @BabaLament If it was for sentimental reasons, it was the right reasons! Of the fifteen books I had signed, I may end up selling one of them... maybe... eventually.... The rest are all for me to appreciate the memories. Good thing I either have other copies of them or have them on trade. ;)
1st Shuma-gorath? (cameo & full) JustThatGuy 5 2 daysJustThatGuy (1090): You have been watching too many anime with monsters that have “suggestive tentacles”. Thank you for all that replied. I just like the villain.
