CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide. dielinfinite 175 22 hoursdielinfinite (18236): If you are planning to send an order in at a later time I would save one for a different order, just to be safe. If that’s not the answer you want to hear, ai would write on the polybag/mylar something like “Press” and/or “do not press” on the respective book. I’d imagine most have to do with the logistics involved. For example, the turnaround times will always be longer with the Canadian orders so it doesn’t make...
  CBCS Forum Moderation and Suspension Thread The_Watcher 68 3 daysJesse_O (23715): 06-15-2021 Towmater one week suspension for unacceptable behavior. Failure to engage in constructive discourse. This is his first offense in the last year.

  CBCS Authorized Signature Program announcements thread. Jesse_O 4 1 yearJesse_O (23715): ASP rule changes from 2018. CBCS is announcing some changes to our Authentic Signature Program. CBCS is dedicated to keeping the integrity of the ASP at the highest level, and over the last 12 months, it has become evident that change was needed. We did not make these changes sitting in a boardroom, we actively solicited and received feedback from both our customers, creators and Authorized Witnesses. The overwhelming area people thought we...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 4 yearsJesse_O (23715): What does a checkmark (asterisk online) by the grade mean? In rare cases, a comic book will look much better than the given grade. In these rare cases, a Check Mark will be placed on the label by the numerical grade. The best way to understand why a specific comic book received a Check Mark designation is to refer to the graders' notes. Example: a comic is graded 8.0. However, the covers are such that it looks like a 8.5 or a 9.0. CBCS...

Signature Values SidTheSquid 4 15 minutesSidTheSquid (398): So, from a monetary standpoint would you say better to have higher valued books signed? Not worth it for low value books? And I would assume if the book is rare enough (Say, a silver age key...) it could hurt the value because maybe not everyone wants a signed copy?
Value jump from 9.8,9.9,10. Mrbryceman 3 24 minuteschester15 (1012): You can subscribe to GPA here: https://comics.gpanalysis.com/ They list all past prices for graded comics, so if you look up a popular comic that likely had some top grades, you can see the value differences. Or look up some sold graded comics on eBay searching by 9.8, 9.9, and 10.0. If you find some sold comics at 9.9 or 10.0, you can look up what 9.8's sold for recently to compare. Don't use values for comics currently for sale, as those...
Monthly (Comic) Book Club - June - Powers: Who Killed Retro Girl & Roleplay dielinfinite 37 31 minutesdielinfinite (18236): I thought the end of issue 9 was pretty funny. I guess Johnny must not have very fine control of his teleportation or else he would’ve stopped/reversed it when Pilgrim grabbed him instead of just looking scared and letting it happen. But no, the costumes being illegal wasn’t brought up before and the story kind of lampshades the question about what constitutes an illegal costume in this world because it does seem kind of flimsy on the...

What comic books have you read today? michaelekrupp 632 2 hoursEbayMafia (14179): For those who don't know, Grendel is not a fixed character so much as a kind of demonic possession or influence. It started with the wealthy Hunter Rose who became an outside-the-law Batman type character under the Grendel influence. I would give it a mixed review. If you don't start from issue 1, I really can't pick a great place to recommend starting from.

Verified REJECT DMC 14 3 hoursDarkseid_of_town (9737): Al alternate solution might be to attend a con where both the signer and CBCS are present and have him provide testimony to them he did sign said book, and that is his signature. It might not be enough even then but it sure would be some good persuasion for your viewpoint

Marvel vs DC/Amalgam Custom Bind Project Progress dielinfinite 4 7 hoursdielinfinite (18236): Thanks! I’m very productive when the mood strikes me…it would be nice if it struck more often 😂 As for compiling additional copies, not really, at least not how I’m understanding you. Since I’m not scanning the comic pages themselves, itt would require either another set of comics or the trades, which are overly expensive and have inferior page quality (newsprint vs modern glossy) to the individual issues, though they do lack...
