Turn Around Time 10.0 tylerindo 332 10 hourscircuitryusa (25): For all those 11/2021 and 12/2021 pressing modern orders that completed pressing recently ... anyone head off into grading yet?? Mine have just been sitting at "Received" but no emails, nada... I'm sure they are at least done with pressing based on the Pressing Thread updates from Steve, and the fact they went from "Pressing" to "Received" on the "Print Invoice"... Just curious if anyone else has had...

CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide. dielinfinite 423 2 monthsAirwave (1): Thanks for the response! I am not sure, but will try to get a better picture. I guess my bigger question is, does it still seem like it should grade as a 9.2 with the pages visible or should it be lower? Thanks again!
  CBCS Official Statement J.Haas 128 3 monthsJesse_O (34489): Well, after reading up on the situation, I better understand what you are referring to. I didn't get too deep into it, but from what I see these are foil images added right to the existing cover. At least as early as 2009, CGC was giving these universal labels and calling them variants. If I got that wrong, please clarify. I'm guessing that since CGC had set that precedent, CBCS followed suit. As to whether or not these ARE variants seems to...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 5 yearsJesse_O (34489): 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...

Found cache need help with supplies Element_Lad 9 2 hoursElement_Lad (775): Found some old GI Joe's not the little ones from the cartoon and the 1980's. These are the original scar faced ones from the 1960's - 1970's. Mobile Command Unit too. Some old games (on boards folks) like Which Witch? and such. Still digging. That damned Arc of the Convenient Indiana found is in here somewhere. :D
Foreign Comics Year End Clearance Sale! HotKeyComics 5 2 hoursJames42 (574): I'm new to non-English foreign comics, and I am with you on the market potential. Mostly.

Raw grading submission? xanman2112 8 14 hoursradd76 (405): @IronMan if they do open up raw grade again (which I feel like they will at special events and maybe even for a time period like for a month or so they allow submissions for it)- then I would just say be ready to submit when you see it- But be aware it almost certainly will increase in price - remember price increase for graded slabs were to account for raw material price increase AND wages increasing as well- they would most certainly raise...

TODAY IN COMIC BOOK HISTORY OGJackster 579 21 hoursOGJackster (38301): December 8 Despite their resemblance to insects, the Brood have endoskeletons as well as exoskeletons. Also unlike insects, they have fanged jaws instead of mandibles. Their skulls are triangular and flat, with a birthmark between their large eyes. Their two front legs are actually long tentacles they can use to manipulate objects. Due to their natural body armor and teeth, the Brood are very dangerous in combat. In addition, they have stingers...
