CBCS is Moving to Dallas... SteveRicketts 107 1 daySquack (166): I suppose the move has completed. I got an order added to my dashboard today, so I guess at least receiving is up and running.
  CBCS Forum Moderation and Suspension Thread The_Watcher 29 3 daysSteveRicketts (6145): For those curious who he was, it was not a shill for any previously banned forum member. He has been around the hobby for a long, long, long, long time. This was just a preemptive disposal that was unanimously decided on once we figured it out. We feel it's best to keep the identity anonymous as to not grant him any publicity. Obscurity is befitting.
CBCS Turnaround SteveRicketts 133 5 daysjackblankenship (1): Thanks, Steve. I already got a reply from customer service, which was greatly appreciated. I know the massive move must be terribly difficult, and being local to St. Pete, I was sad to see CBCS moving. I was just hoping to pick up the last few books I had submitted before the move. No love lost!
Changes to ASP: AWs Please read spaulus 77 6 daysSloptimusgrime (1): So perhaps a new section broken down by state of reliable and approved witnesses and their approval list of conventions they'll be attending or broken down by conventions. This could definitely be doable if broken down properly.
PSA - Dealing with CBCS AW's Jesse_O 1 12 daysJesse_O (5608): This was posted two days ago on the Official CBCS Signature Programs (ASP/VSP) Facebook page by Mark Roman. When you are dealing with a new CBCS AW or facilitator, it doesn't hurt to check if they are legit by asking Mark Roman. His email is:
CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 523 18 daysSteveRicketts (6145): Attaching a screen shot of the submission screen...
[PSA] Calling the office while driving Jake_Fleming 22 20 daysJake_Fleming (184): @xkonk is correct. Hands free doesn't make it any safer. Or less obnoxious. The radio being on is infrequent, but it does happen. Slightly more annoying than the traffic and car horns in the background. This guy gets it.

CBCS Slab Security SteveRicketts 61 6 monthsBigRedOne1944 (2149): I think this just about sums it up.
  CBCS Signature restrictions for AWs Jesse_O 1 10 monthsJesse_O (5608): This is borrowed from the Official CBCS Signature Programs page on Facebook. While it will be kept up to date as best as possible, everyone is encouraged to visit the page and check the pinned post for updates. Updated 11-07-2017 Official CBCS Signature Programs Facebook page
  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 10 monthsJesse_O (5608): 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...

CBCS at North Texas (July 21-22)? iggykoopa30 6 9 minutesCatmanAmerica (4984): I'm sure they'd be open to local con suggestions if the convention doesn't run up against one of the majors. SDCC is still the biggest game in the country and it's an all-hands-on-deck event. Missing that'n wouldn't be good for business. Just sayin'. :beer::)
Kyle Starks ONLINE_209 1 14 minutesONLINE_209 (1093): 18-19, 2019 at Stockton Arena!
FANDOM, then & Now: CatmanAmerica 4 23 minutesCatmanAmerica (4984): Keep this one short (tough to do with this tall Texan)... Richard Evans of Bedrock City at Comicpalooza, Houston, 2013. :beer::)
Looking For Marvel & DC Key Reprints 00slim 5 46 minutes00slim (4183): @obiwan1971 Cool, let me know if you’re interested in selling ASM 129. And if you have a Giant Size X-Men 1 reprint, I’m interested in that as well. I have a reprint of X-Men Vol. 1, #1.
Page Color/Quality GAC 18 1 hourCatmanAmerica (4984): I'm not convinced that supporting an arbitrary scale where pink/blue pages are automatically knocked down below light tan is the best approach. It's entirely possible that some Fox books with blue and pink interiors were preserved in a humidity balanced environment. This is the one instance where color and PQ should not be assessed on an absolute scale. What is needed is a better method of examining these books to ascertain brittleness...
Lobos daughter OGJackster 78 1 hourDespain (1360): @Drogio I hope you get them. I still don't have a copy. Guess I'll try a comic shop near me. I havent speculated on a new book in decades. Now I'm starting to regret all those copies of TT 20 I pre-ordered from mid-town. 😑 Fingers crossed that TTS 1 is just a cameo. 😁
Status Updates? robo_beardo 10 2 hoursGAC (820): Hallelujah!!!! I've moved from Submitted to Processing!!!!!
ComicXposure issues? BabaLament 19 3 hoursantoniofett (817): It seems like every week there’s a new thread about comic xposure and their nonexistent customer service!
Marvel Collector Corps Box has Relaunched On Amazon 00slim 4 3 hours00slim (4183): Aww man, Amazon CA doesn’t have this deal? That sucks. But if it’s a big enough hit, they might extend it up North. Fingers crossed.
[Hoax] First Screenshot of CARNAGE kaptainmyke 17 3 hoursBabaLament (1330): @kaptainmyke Very happy to hear this is a fake trailer.
Weekly cover contest #94 - Gamblers Paradise! Savage_Spawn 30 4 hoursSavage_Spawn (1660): I don't think voting for a repost or comment post is a big deal. The votes that count are the ones for the original cover. You did fine. Tough choice for me I like em all, but I've always loved that Good, Bad. Fugly comic cover. Got a couple stashed somewhere in my pile of paper...

Comcast Outbids Disney for Fox... Paulbg2000 24 8 hoursBabaLament (1330): This just hit the wire. Introducing your newest Disney Princess:
Ever had any lucky breaks at an auction? brandon77 7 8 hoursDeesnutz (37): On a toy! I found a transformers constructicon factory sealed still,with an hour left at $5, 1 bid. Waited til last second and stole it for $8! Sold it for $250 a week later.
Is it worth it to get Thanos Quest Signed Slabbed? Ladic 9 10 hoursLadic (7): For now is for my personal collection, but down the line if I ever need the money, I would have to part with it. Thankfully I have not been in that position as of yet.
Requests for selling some books xkonk 20 11 hoursFoghorn_Sam (3166): @CopperAgeKids I have a fair amount of 80's to early 90's DC I'd like to get rid of. If you have anything in mind in particular, send me a list and I'll see what I've got.
Recommendation kash 23 13 hoursCopperAgeKids (3637): The idsue is not only whether they are archival grade or not. They are not rigid, like a full back.Unlike a full back; they do not "hold" a comic in place. By that, I mean, their texture allows for sliding. ...This isn't good for a comic's preservation in 101 ways.
I miss Wizard magazine 00slim 30 18 hoursDrogio (3151): Speaking of price guides...I loved getting comic values monthly (CVM) every month...I had a subscription for a while... It had some quirks, like not listing golden age books and would not provide any explanation as to why some series either started off at a strange number (I.e., Captain America 100) or there were missing issues (Incredible Hulk jump from issue 6 to 102). But that made it a mystery early in my collecting hobby and made me...
Trading meet-ups in Dallas, TX kash 4 18 hoursIronMan (2167): Sounds like a cool idea. I'll mention it to my buddy that runs a store. I can see it drawing a crowd - and a crowd in a comic book store is bound to buy a few things :beer:
Ultra Pro or BCW for your bags? Ladic 24 20 hoursdoog (1090): I obsessively remove scotch tape from anywhere near a comic, and use 3m dots which don’t ruin comics. I would never use a self seal bag and throw those away immediately.
Going to go forward with my superman fan film finaly i am rewritren the scr David_Kent 50 21 hoursX51 (5917): I tend to migrate towards people who have something going on and do it well. Perhaps that is a byproduct of not being easily impressed. Up until very recently, I worked alongside a guy who had done sound mixing as an intern for Ceelo Green just before he had a breakthrough hit. He was telling me an insiders view of Atlanta's recording industry. I pick up tidbits of everything. The first comic show I did was alongside the sound mixer (on the...
HeroesCon - great original sketch Tedsaid 3 21 hoursTedsaid (1234): You're right, it does! Which works for me, 'cause I love Noto's stuff, too. Here is a link to Rocha's Instagram account. His most recent (HeroesCon) commissions are posted first, including mine above. And here is a representative sample of Phil Noto. (From the web - I only WISH they were mine.)
Looking to sell/trade bulk series lots in NJ-jersey shore area Enelson 6 22 hoursxkonk (157): Also NJ-related: I saw that one of the comic guys who sets up at the Peddler flea market in Sicklerville is selling his whole inventory. 30,000 some books. I only looked around there once so I don't know what all he has, but if anyone is sitting on a bunch of money...
Question for Ebay sellers VaComicsGuy 7 23 hoursDrWatson (6109): Yes, counter both and the first one to accept the counter is the lucky winner.
Ghost Rider #1 1990 Submitt or Not? BigRedOne1944 12 1 dayX51 (5917): No. It's 8.5 to me, but visual appearance of the book outweighs the grade on the label. A book this new would have to be 9.6 minimum and visually match also. Nothing about those defects look like production flaws to me unless you consider improper handling to be a production flaw.
Saddle River Comics - New eBay ID & Link drchaos 149 1 daydrchaos (8797): We have another winnner:
What grade would you give the GA Batman? kash 7 1 dayobiwan1971 (124): According to CBCS website highest grade for detached cover is 3.5. I have a Batman 13 with a detached cover a bit worse than yours and mine was graded 2.0. Yours should be 2.5-3.0

Trinity Comics Experiences Frontier2Xterra 36 1 dayFrontier2Xterra (166): Good to know, thanks! I haven't heard back but I know they were at a con over the weekend. I will try to reach out again if I don't hear from them in a few days.
New to your collection #3 Jesse_O 366 1 dayLonestar (1093): Lastly, met Brandon Peterson, who did this commission for me. Lynda Carter lives in the DC area and attended several of the Capitals home hockey games during the Stanley Cup playoffs. So I asked him to do this with her wearing a Caps shirt.
Heritage Auctions $$$ OGJackster 34 2 dayspoka (7309): As KN said - just do live bid and don’t input a max bid ahead of time - then you are good
Strange Adventures 180 Slabbed 5.5 GAC 5 2 daysGAC (820): Thank you for your input!! I think I'm going to buy the book. Thanks!
