  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 1 yearJesse_O (6955): 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...

Newton Rings PhantomEwan 56 24 minutesKYoung_1974 (370): I don't have any experience with CGC or the newton rings. I've read enough about it on the boards to want to avoid it. I've also seen the explanation that it's the inner well that pushes on the outer case that causes it and that made a certain amount of sense. I saw a guy on a FB group say that it was the tpe of plastic that CGC was using that was causing the rings. I blew it off, because I had already read on the internet what the cause...

The Love of Comic Collecting GAC 35 16 hoursX51 (8893): GCD says this about it: 'Harry Mendryk (of the Kirby Museum / Simon & Kirby blog) on July 27 2012 on the Mort Meskin mailing list said that this story was "All Joe Simon". He did not indicate if this included the scripting.' I would contact the Kirby museum to see if I could get more info. Since there is no color cover image at the GCD and they do have an image, my first guess would be that it was a remaindered comic or...

Random question VaComicsGuy 12 2 daysX51 (8893): There was a hard to find TPB that would fluctuate between $100 and $225 on eBay depending on whether the bidders with deep pockets were searching for it on a given day. I sold one to a collector for $80. Then again, I'd found a store that had 4 copies and I bought them all for $10 a piece. They didn't know it was a retailer premium and stores had to order 1,000 comics to get the TPB. I think they bought them at a Diamond warehouse sale. I don't...
