CBCS Turnaround SteveRicketts 221 16 minutesmjon30 (4): The grades are almost always fair if not accurate. Just the phone service and speed of delivery is kind of awful. Everyone at the shows is great. Greg is great. Fast pass is a rip off. I'm glad you got your books. Joining with Beckett surely ties them both up a lot.

CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 558 3 daysSteveRicketts (6271): @xkonk I don't know what the user can see, but there is definitely a Pressing status on our end. I agree that it would be good information for the customer to have, so I'm going to request that it be added to the system. I don't know when it will be added, but I will certainly put it on the list for our developers.

Changes to ASP: AWs Please read spaulus 77 1 monthSloptimusgrime (16): 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.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 11 monthsJesse_O (5959): 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...

Titans - SDCC Trailer Paulbg2000 8 6 hoursThemaxx35 (1921): The Starfire depiction is killing me. I’m okay with everything else - Robin’s costume looks great - but Starfire looks like she’s wearing a Halloween wig. They cast a beautiful actress, how’d they screw it up after that?
Batwoman' TV series in the works with first lesbian superhero in the lead Scorpion 5 7 hoursJoosh (310): Current DC series are already full of it with supporting cast in Supergirl, Legends, and Arrow. This seems the next logical step. I’ll pass.

What comic(s) did you read today? dielinfinite 12 9 hoursDJC_II (646): @Frontier2Xterra I know this sounds funny but I actually prefer them in their original prints. It's the paper they used, and how it took in the ink. I found the digital versions to be quite flat.
Is this worth it?? Stan lee signed Aliens 9 9 hoursAliens (274): @shrewbeer I might do that thank you
Thor #3 OGJackster 15 10 hoursJoosh (310): I fact checked this statement. It’s true.

Do you think Wizard Magazine was a big contributor to the speculation bubbl Ladic 18 12 hoursmichaelekrupp (202): Great point about how the variants skew sales data. This is exactly what happened in the 90s as well. As long as there were people buying ten copies of “hot” issues, you could lose the guys like me who were buying one of everything and still show an increase. The problem was (and may be again)when the “hot book” guys quit buying their ten, publishers quickly found that there was no one left.

My first slabs ever have arrived Ladic 27 18 hoursDJC_II (646): It would be weird to receive a 9.4 with no grader's notes. The vast majority of collectors would be up in arms if they didnt receive any, especially on a very very popular key like this. Also, I'd tend to believe this may even have graded a 9.6 but this book lately grades hard due to its popularity

Trinity Comics Experiences Frontier2Xterra 76 22 hourschacault (28): I've send $1,000's of dollars to Matt for various signing services. He is an honest guy (this isn't a shill account. lol), and from what I can tell he is just lacking a robust infrastructure to effectively manage the volume of business. The shill account seems out of character, and I'm not worried about his honesty. That being said, with the experience thus far I'd be waiting awhile before sending some comics to them. I'm hoping that they'll...
The SILVER AGE's greatest hits, misses and ground outs: CatmanAmerica 43 1 dayX51 (6379): X-Men had a disadvantage in that it was bi-monthly for many years. You had to wait two months to get the current installment. X-Men #'s 1-11 had one main villain... Magneto. They battled the same villain for close to 2 years. If you read the published letters during that time period fans were wanting a change. Issue #11 introduced the Stranger who just took Magneto out of the picture completely. That opened the door to new villains. Juggernaut...
Moving w/ comics. BabaLament 15 1 dayX51 (6379): I hate it when I have a box of comics that haven't been bagged yet and I accidentally spill two gallons of Clorox bleach into the box. I learned my lesson about trying to dry them off with a blow torch too. Sheesh! Maybe I'm not taking this subject seriously because it doesn't seem like rocket science.
Ebay bad packaging job, can I ask for refund? Ladic 38 1 dayDrogio (3280): 2 working days max. Then force it.
