Weekly Cover Contest Discussion Thread DrWatson 489 2 daysGAC (25575): I submit covers that I like and if others like it too, then great! I also vote for the covers I like best and that usually resembles the books I collect, which is primarily silverage and bronze age with a little copper and gold. Rarely do I vote for modern books but I certainly have in the past. When I vote, I look for the 3 best covers that best fits the theme. Once I narrow the 3 covers down, I then rank them.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 4 yearsJesse_O (22192): 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...

The sad but funny story of Iron Man #1 EbayMafia 14 7 hoursTedsaid (7107): That seems like a weird way to remove a page. Did he carefully cut it, like with a razor blade? Wait a minute ... if it's six on one side and eight on the other, doesn't that mean he removed two pages, not just one? Cutting both of them? I would never take a page out of a comic, but if I had to, I would just remove an entire wrap. But that would keep the number of pages on each side of the staples even. I can imagine thinking a razor...
Monthly (Comic) Book Club - April - Invincible dielinfinite 9 7 hoursdielinfinite (17356): I found issue #2 far more interesting right off the bat and an improvement in every way over issue #1.

Insurance Herkzy 11 12 hourscyrano0521 (808): Jerry Siegel signature only adds about 100-150 to book value for most collectors; Dan Jerguns can actually detract from the value, to some people. I would leave them in the $200 tier. If you want faster turnaround, use fast pass/fast press which cuts wait time in half.
