Updated AW rules effective 10-08-2019 Jesse_O 12 1 monthNuffsaid111 (2316): The beauty with CBCS (as opposed to CGC), is I don't need the lawyer jargon, or the artist's nonsense, or the reps nonsense, or the ticketing process, or the facilitator, or the self witness, or the authorized witness, or the kitchen sink. All I need is....... the Red Label. :D Lawyer problem solved

Schedule an appointment with us! Jake_Fleming 37 2 monthsWalker1 (18): I recently sent books by mail and had it so they had to sign when recieved(sent usps). They signed, sent an e mail when the books were put away until graded, once grading started and I am sure once sent out. To ease nerves use a system that tracks mail sent out like usps.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 2 yearsJesse_O (11991): 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...

How to identify a real signature (Bernie Wrightson) Beney117 5 1 minDrWatson (9337): The only way for you to know a signature is 100% authentic is to see it signed yourself. Anything else is just taking someone else's word for it. Some people are okay with that, others aren't.

First Appearance of Bishop Cover Question wareure 12 30 minutesHcanes (1660): +1 to what @Studley_Dudley and @Joosh have stated. Also there are Canadian Newsstand variants as well. A few of these carry a massive premium especially ASM 238. The guys at the rare comic blog have done a fantastic job breaking down newsstand vs direct editions. You can spend an hour or two reading up on knowledge that I wish I had stumbled upon years ago. Rare comic blog link newsstand vs direct edition

Are any CBCS facilitators attending California Comic Con in Orange Ca? sportshort 1 2 hourssportshort (1385): I am looking to see if a signature facilitator will be at the convention in January. I am looking for someone to witness 3-5 books to be signed by Sternako. I know that CBCS as a company will not be there and I know that CGC will be there but since CGC is more expensive and I like CBCS better, i would prefer to use CBCS and their ASP (Authentic Signature Program).

Do you have Disney+? OGJackster 19 4 hoursSteveRicketts (8465): I signed up for a year's subscription but they gave you a seven day trial before you got billed. On day four of my trial the news broke about them getting hacked, so I changed my password and cancelled my subscription.

New to your collection #6 southerncross 754 5 hourssportshort (1385): Don't know if people were pressing back then. don't know when it became a thing. since it would cost so much for shipping pressing and re-grading, I don't know that there is enough up-side to make it worth the money and trouble (months and months of waiting).

10 Most Successful R-Rated Comic Book Movies OGJackster 27 9 hoursTowmater (4101): As you stated he nailed a whinny, confused, sulking, and crybaby Superman in his films. Then continuing down the path you defend and seem to enjoy, i.e., darker/edgier, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman. So, the guy messed up Batman and Superman. He was the executive producer on the ultra hot mess Suicide Squad movie which I see you conveniently forgot to mention in your post. Yep, another feather in his cap.:beer:
Trying to sort the spec on the wal Mart Spider verse packs Darkseid_of_town 2 9 hoursPaulbg2000 (2676): Spider-Verse 1 is, as you mentioned 1st Spider Zero...and the Wal Mart Exclusive is also 1st Cover Appearance, which is why people are going in search of them in anticipation that the character might end up in a Sony cartoon. The King Thor is just another Wal Mart Exclusive variant...same happened with Thanos 1 and Black Cat 1...they're sought out because they're usually 2 per store or higher and also regional.

Ebay sales tax Bronte 21 11 hoursDarkseid_of_town (4101): He is onto something here....I seldom buy heavy duty books at shows and cons anymore for this very reason. I am seeing this time and time again, and he is dead on with his comment about giving you a deal, with a comic already priced double guide...cause you can bet they aren't doing two for ones, or going half price on all blue ticket books.

DC Comics Not Reprinting Superman #17 Despite Secret Identity-Revealing Sel Ladic 9 14 hourstheCapraAegagrus (197): I know that Superman Returns sucked, and so did some of the pre-New 52 comic book stuff, but what about Man of Steel and stuff like For Tomorrow, Peace on Earth, and All-Star Superman?
The Golden Age of comics The_Watcher 3263 16 hoursCatmanAmerica (13993): Alas, that poor unfortunate damsel just couldn’t keep herself outta trouble! In the very next issue she starts cuttin’ up and only the Human Torch’s brave efforts can keep her from falling to pieces! :beer:;)

Any basic tips on spotting Restoration? EbaySeller 3 21 hoursmanfred_spain (46): Some of the best money you can spend is on a small black light to help identify restoration. I imagine you could get something fairly affordable on Amazon.
What are your best comic collecting stories? EbaySeller 63 22 hoursTedsaid (3321): Along that same subject, has anyone bought comics from ConditionFreak's family? I think I talked to one of the sons on eBay, when he advertised a few things, but crickets after that. Certainly I don't want to be disrespectful, and so I've left it alone, largely forgotten about it. But I'd also be glad to participate if they want to have a big sale or something. Or even just give them advice, you know? I wonder what they decided to do.

Borock: Chillin' With The NY Warriors! sborock 8 23 hoursEbaySeller (771): Y'all are heading down the same path that got me scrubbed the first time. In fact, how many times has this thread been scrubbed? A bump is a bump, at least off-topic posts keep a low-comment thread from falling off the page.
