Lmfao that won’t happen.

I'm all for tightening up of the program.
So...will the CBCS booth have enough witnesses at said shows that we won't need to hang around there and wait for an AW then go queue up to have our books signed by the creators/artists? Seems like it might be a logistical nightmare.
Especially if you're not going from one artist to the next. If i get an AW then go get a sig, then wander a bit, then go back to the CBCS booth for an AW then get a sig--wash rinse repeat.

If you ever worked with the other guys it would work exactly the same way except the CBCS AW would be wearing a different color shirt.

CGC teamed up with Reedpop conventions to be exclusive and keep CBCS out. That means Emerald City Con, NYCC, and the Reedpop one in Chicago. The name fails me at the moment.

Their off campus site at NYCC was actually more convenient than where they used to be in the Javittis Center. You had more space plus a space to go to for a clean free restroom to drop a deuce and not have to wait 8hrs for cosplayers to get out of the stalls.

I have a slight problem with CBCS not being able to appear at the con.

That's a monopoly. That's against US antitrust and FCC regulations!

United States antitrust law is a collection of federal and state government laws that regulates the conduct and organization of business corporations, generally to promote fair competition for the benefit of consumers. (The concept is called competition law in other English-speaking countries.)

You guys need a better lawyer.

Oh I’m sorry - antitrust laws only apply to corporations not LLCs.

Both companies are LLCs.

Wow! If CGC has locked up Reedpop events, that's a ton of money in con' submissions.

ECCC (Seattle), NYCC (New York), C2E2 (Chicago), PAX (Boston, San Antonio, Seattle), McM (London, Paris), & Star Wars Celebration (Orlando)...plus all the Asia business.

That's a hard hit to come back from. Between that, and the eternal TAT's, CBCS slabs might end up being a collectors item all their own...

There is also the issue of branding which doesn't violate anti-trust laws. You go to most professional sports events and they serve one brand of beer. A companies name may well be on the Stadium.

CBCS is free to pursue exclusive arrangements at other comic conventions if they choose.

I'm not saying I like the comic convention scene going in that direction. Comic convention promoters should be thinking of fans first. And fans would - for the most part - like seeing both grading companies present. But it doesn't seem to be anything that crosses a legal line.

IMHO, it is a mistake by CGC. This exclusive arrangement with Reedpop had to cost CGC money. It seems likely CGC looses money on this deal. Are they actually going to take in enough extra submissions to make up what the exclusive arrangement cost them? I'd have to see the numbers to believe it. Until proven otherwise, I think CGC is loosing money on this deal and views the expense as an advertising cost. But is this advertising a positive image of CGC??
