A letter from Jeromy Murray, VP of CBCS and Beckett SteveRicketts 78 5 daysBabaLament (1987): In my opinion, its the absolute lack of communication that is damning. TAT delays happen, I get that. However, a little communication would go a long way; where, exactly, are my books in the process? I wish I had an idea, but unfortunately, the dashboard & the invoice both have different status, and they are updated so infrequently that its barely worth the time to check. The order I'm waiting on is relatively small, 10 books for around...

PSA - Dealing with CBCS AW's Jesse_O 2 2 monthsDrogio (3640): So what is happening? So these unauthorized witnesses know they are not authorized? Are they scamming or just not aware of the rules and their qualification )or in these cases disqualification)? Agree though....your comics, your responsibility to ensure they are handled properly.

Changes to ASP: AWs Please read spaulus 77 3 monthsSloptimusgrime (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 Slab Security SteveRicketts 61 9 monthsBigRedOne1944 (2971): I think this just about sums it up.
  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 1 yearJesse_O (6481): 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...

Comic wall redo antoniofett 19 25 minutesantoniofett (955): I just used 10 foot J-channeling and 10 foot furring strips. You can get them at Lowe’s or Home Depot. I used the plastic J-channeling over the aluminum ones because of sharp edges. Thinking about it now I wish I would have gotten better furring strips. Some of them cracked a little while I was putting them up. Good luck man and let us know how it looks!

Hope for DC Black Label Jesse_O 15 6 hoursTedsaid (1639): Why are they "reprinting" Batman: Year One? Or Kingdom Come? They've been in constant print since they came out. Hell, they both already have an Absolute edition, which is supposed to be the grandest of deluxe printings. (Although I did hear that the Absolute Year One was kind of crap.) So where are they going with the Black Label reprint? Are they adding R-rated material that was cut from the original? Seems very strange that...

TAT Thread - Modern VSP w/Fastpass ThorneArt 3 9 hoursmoodswing (763): If you pay for say quickstream which is supposed to be 2 weeks and you get your comics well past that, do you get your money refunded? As in do you get the modern price?
The great crash of the 20s shrewbeer 19 9 hoursTedsaid (1639): Yes, those are very mockable. First thing I thought when I heard about it was, "Boy, that sounds pretty dumb." It's like tying a gun to the end of your sword: what's it doing there and does it really help? No. No, it doesn't. Although I suppose it's easier to light those cigars now.

[PSA] Publishers: Variant Fatigue Syndrome kaptainmyke 416 10 hoursDrogio (3640): Does venom have a wang? Or does he have the ability to enhance the host's wang? Can you imagine Mr. Fantastic's wang? They don't call him Mr. "Fantastic" for nuthin! No comic thread is safe from being hijacked by wang talk these days....

Slab Shipping Studley_Dudley 4 11 hoursesaravo (13723): Mike - Medium non-flat rate boxes are available at most Post Offices, and as @KYoung_1974 said, you can order them for free. You have to use the Price Calculator on the US Post Office website to see if they are less expensive. Depending on the weight of the package and its destination, sometimes flat rate boxes are cheaper to mail, and sometimes the non-flat rate boxes are cheaper (usually when you are only shipping one or two raw books). Both...

Joaquin Phoenix in Makeup as The Joker OGJackster 36 13 hoursDJC_II (1033): I don't doubt his talents. Genuinely I don't. It would just be the perfect blend if he could at least look closer to the real character... Can't have it all
Question about a slab Gamecube2482 11 14 hoursdielinfinite (7762): CGC now uses an inner well after the creep engine backlash but the outer shells are unchanged. The pressure-focused design is the main cause of the Newton ring effect.

Remembering great comics no longer in our collections... CatmanAmerica 78 16 hoursCatmanAmerica (8584): Don't recall posting my old copy of PL #17 in this thread, but if it looks familiar, just pretend it's new and enjoy it all over again. ;) Of course, the queen of SOTI books is deeply missed. Ultimately, my reasons for letting this copy go to auction are complicated. The structure and overall beauty of this book is very high grade appearance-wise, but due to questionable PQ ...a problem many Fox books of this period suffer due to Victor...

Adding to Variant Madness PaulPop 2 17 hoursStudley_Dudley (3115): Variants are the future! Seriously, these are garbage. I buy some variants but Marvel killed my interest in 96% of variants with Star Wars.

TAT Whiner Finally Receives Books Masochism 4 1 dayJoosh (481): Nice video, I hope to make my own soon.
What should a 1:200 variant be worth? Tedsaid 18 1 dayTedsaid (1639): FYI, with the help of a friend, I just checked GPA on that Dell'Otto Spider-man variant, the 1:100 #667. Last two sales were a 9.6 (Nov 2017) and a 9.8 (Aug 2017), for $8,000 and $10,000, respectively. DAMN. It is a beautiful cover, but MAN those are some high numbers. You just know someone, somewhere, is sitting on one and has no idea. Maybe an exec at the printing company has a box he forgot about in a closet or something.
