  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 7 yearsJesse_O (39302): 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...

Player 3 has entered the chat. PSA to grade comics. Sigur_Ros 132 11 hoursDrWatson (51127): One thought is that it's easier to label the book as either newsstand or direct as not to miss a notation. The only thing to come into question would be the multi-pack books. Technically, I think those would be direct editions, but I think the cgc has started labeling them as multi-pack editions.

Tat cgc vs cbcs Nate79 14 4 dayslawguy1977 (6015): Remember when TATs were a year or more for both companies? That was fun. And by "fun," I mean a "miserably, torturous experience for someone with immediate gratifcation issues." Anyway, in my experience, CBCS is typically faster with pressing and encapsulation than CGC, regardless of value. CBSC Pressing and QC is way better, IMO, too. I can't say when it comes to signing events, though. As for your books being in QC,...
