CBCS 101: A Newbie's Guide. dielinfinite 53 9 daysjedijohnson (29): True. Makes it hard for those of us who stick up for CBCS when other collectors and comic shop roll-their-eyes in conversations of grading and CGC as the standard. But lately I'm seeing more and more QA issues with CBCS. On my last submission, I got a Clone Wars #1 graded at 9.8. Great right? Except the label doesn't list a single bit of amplifying information. That's right. No mention of the 1st appearance of Ahsoka Tano. I looked up...

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 3 yearsJesse_O (17858): 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...

TCGs: MTG,Polemon, etc. Anyone Play or Collect? dielinfinite 1 25 minutesdielinfinite (13789): I was wondering if anyone here played or collected any Trading Card Games and wanted to show off some of their collection. A friend of mine gave me a bunch of MTG cards back in middle school but I didn’t really start playing until high school where I had an English teacher that played and a bunch of students and I would play in his class room during lunch time. I was really into it for a few years into college (from about Mirrodin to...

The Golden Age of comics The_Watcher 3799 2 hoursSauceDog (105): CBCS order finally came in, and here is one golden age experiment I was trying with them: Startling Comics #10, first appearance of Fighting Yank - but it was a coverless copy that I added my own reproduction cover to (the reproduction covers you can find online are trash, sheesh!). Pretty much the most affordable way to buy and display such an old key book, and it's nice to have an actual grade on it as opposed to 'No Grade' as CGC would have...

What are you listening to? 2.0 Jesse_O 526 9 hoursCatmanAmerica (18457): While looking for some early Traffic this rare performance footage with Steve Winwood and Dave Mason popped up from 1971.

WEEKLY COVER CONTEST 206 - Your favorite cover Towmater 34 14 hoursLenovations (502): I don't need your vote this week as I'm not in it to win it. My favorite cover is the one I spent many years of my life pursuing. Back in the early 1990s I wrote a script created a story and presented it to numerous editors, publishers. Most wouldn't even read it because I was only a comic fan and not a big name writer. Dilemma Productions loved the story and created an anthology book to publish my story about a super hero group called...

The X-Men find out that Celestials are coming to Earth and let Sinister know, but he is unbothered. Instead he uses the hive mind of all his clones to take over the X-Men except for Emma, who is stuck in diamond form (her arm was shot off in the previous issue). Fortunately the X-Men had a plan where Emma could use a code word to have Hope copy her power; free of Sinister's control,...
