CBCS Turnaround SteveRicketts 200 2 minutesRavenBeard (25): Four month or more would be my best guess.
CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 558 2 hoursSteveRicketts (6268): @xkonk I don't know what the user can see, but there is definitely a Pressing status on our end. I agree that it would be good information for the customer to have, so I'm going to request that it be added to the system. I don't know when it will be added, but I will certainly put it on the list for our developers.
The Dallas move, Status updates, questions and concerns Jake_Fleming 252 10 hoursThorneArt (415): Thanks for posting that Jesse, This is all I was looking for, some acknowledgement that CBCS was overwhelmed and falling behind, even more so than was expected from the move. Please stop giving me a vague cookie cutter response (Even though a lot of cut n paste is needed when so many are crying about their books) at least change the wording, take some ownership and so responsibility. I don't like that I am on week 18 of a 12 week TAT, but...

Changes to ASP: AWs Please read spaulus 77 1 monthSloptimusgrime (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 FAQ Jesse_O 1 11 monthsJesse_O (5917): 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...

Best Vendors to Visit at SDCC? 00slim 20 22 minutesthelastbard (1246): @00slim I'll be at booth 2948 - Arcana Comics here and there, signing, chatting, causing trouble, whatever. I'm not sure on official signing times at the moment, unfortunately, but I'm trying to find out. I used to run the publishing side (2010 - 2013), but now I just fly in when they let me know, and I'm still involved with a lot of "other" stuff, so I talk to the owner a lot... There will be a metallic cover version of my Steam...

Batman 136 grading help please Joosh 16 2 hoursSpiderTim (385): Press the book it looks really goood. The biggest problem I see with it is the rusted staples.
It's wanted to show this book off Aliens 2 4 hoursbythegram (151): Great call on the inside signature. I’m thinking of going the same going forward regardless if I am going to grade/slab or not. I’ll just get a great photo of the sig and frame it with the comic. As far as Carnage in a movie. I’m a fan of Carnage but it would have to be a very dark R rated movie for it to be done correctly. I hope he isn’t in the Venom movie right out the gate to be honest. Maybe a tease, or a Cletus cameo. There are a...

Verification color change? kevinlmillard 66 6 hoursCatmanAmerica (6115): Let me go on the record as having doubts about the appeal of labels that are the same color as prison jump suits. :beer:;)
The Golden Age of comics The_Watcher 2009 7 hoursCatmanAmerica (6115): Police Comics #10 sports one of Gil Fox's better covers. Although Fox was not one of Quality's best artists he was dependable. What makes early Police great is that the interiors are chock full of great art, including Jack Cole's Plastic Man. Quality Comics, under the guidence of publisher "Busy" Arnold, turned out many excellent comics in the 40's and early 50's. Arnold reputedly paid among the best rates in the business...
The SILVER AGE's greatest hits, misses and ground outs: CatmanAmerica 34 8 hoursCatmanAmerica (6115): @martymann Metal Men was a silly concept, but a lot of fun for awhile. The idea of giving various metals personalities based on their strengths, functions and comparative values was clever. However, the plots seemed to hit a brick wall after awhile. It's sort of like telling a great joke or story: once everyone knows the punchline you have to keep embellishing on it just to hold folk's interest. I think the series probably just ran out of...
What comic(s) did you read today? dielinfinite 6 8 hoursdielinfinite (6931): I read the two issues of the classic Nothing Can Stop The Juggernaut. The story certainly delivered on the title since it’s basically two issues of Spidey being entirely ineffective against the Juggernaut with everything from his webbing, dropping buildings on him, to driving a gasoline tanker into him. It was interesting to see Spidey just getting more and more frustrated and seeing his realization that those extreme measures could have...

a few more raw Spidey's for sale Watcher 21 17 hoursWatcher (2245): lol....I was just informed by a fellow boardie that some of these Spidey's are heating up now I've pulled 40 potential 9.6's out of my box and have to have them pressed and graded to see if any make 9.8. Thought I was done with the grading for a while as I was happy just selling them off raw. But they're the same books my 300 9.6 White came out of so I guess I need to do it ...and I never even pressed my 300.
