  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 3 yearsJesse_O (19287): 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...

Charges for verifying signature (Reject / Grade Screening / Other)? waynemel 9 23 hoursEbaySeller (6275): @waynemel Maybe you are talking about two different books, but I can't imagine using Grade Screen in combination with Signature Verification. If the signature verifies, get it slabbed. If it does not verify, don't get it slabbed. I can't think of any other choice that would make sense.

WEEKLY DRAWING SUBMISSION #12 - HALLOWEEN flanders 25 2 daysSiggy (10740): I know it's late. I just haven't been feeling the vibe. Here's an old one that fits the theme. It's supposed to be a "Broken Panel" idea; The boarded up window to the right is actually the Walker's point of view as its attention is drawn by the bottom board dropping and revealing people peaking out the window- At the bottom in silhouette are the hands that accidentally dislodge the board. Note (if you can) only two nails used on the...
