Turnaround time 9.0 dielinfinite 690 30 minutesCaffeine_Kid (395): Got my invoice today for pressing and shipping costs. I had press screening for the 8 books, even though I figured at least 2 or 3 (if not 4) would be 9.8 already. I even thought, perhaps naively, I possibly had a 9.9 in there. I am surprised that I was charged for pressing on all 8 books. Seems somewhat suspicious. Anyone here pay for press screening and not pay for pressing?

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 5 yearsJesse_O (31783): 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...

CGC puts blue label on "new" modified excl HotKeyComics 466 4 minutesTowmater (9898): I’m not clear at all and how it affects their brand. They provided a “perfect” product under the contract that they negotiate with a third party. The contract that they have with that third-party should state what can and cannot be done with the product after delivery. If it did, and the third party is operating outside of the contract, then they need to address that with that entity. If they didn’t state within the contract about what...

At least it's something that can be fixed with no damage to the books, but still. :( It's not unusual at all for sellers to not mention Newton rings because they're just something that comes with slabbing comics using two different types of plastics that touch. CGC slabs are more susceptible than CBCS slabs, but that doesn't mean CBCS slabs are immune. I have a couple with Newton rings but they're...

This brings the Avengers and X-Men into the fray. SHIELD is inept (as usual) while attempting to stop the Avengers from entering Genosha. Exodus swings down from space to kill not only Cortez but Luna as well for being human. Lots of fighting, good guys win, and it leads the dissolution of the West Coast Avengers in #102. ...
