Newbie’s Guide to Tracking your Order dielinfinite 29 14 hoursdielinfinite (11502): @Theprodigalbat I believe there was an supply issue that delayed RAW Book orders. You should send a message to @Darryl_H with your invoice number to see if he can update you on what’s delaying your order.

CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 946 2 daysDuece411 (234): I have never had a problem yet with them putting orders on my dash, or billing for that matter but once you get a book pressed threw them you have to understand it takes a little bit of time to have a quality press done to each and every book! Now just imagine 1000 people sending 5 books in each time... it can be lengthy! Thats why i just hire a guy to press them for me insted of waiting now... just saying i dont work there and I feel for these...

Updated AW rules effective 10-08-2019 Jesse_O 12 3 monthsNuffsaid111 (2618): The beauty with CBCS (as opposed to CGC), is I don't need the lawyer jargon, or the artist's nonsense, or the reps nonsense, or the ticketing process, or the facilitator, or the self witness, or the authorized witness, or the kitchen sink. All I need is....... the Red Label. :D Lawyer problem solved
Schedule an appointment with us! Jake_Fleming 37 4 monthsWalker1 (18): I recently sent books by mail and had it so they had to sign when recieved(sent usps). They signed, sent an e mail when the books were put away until graded, once grading started and I am sure once sent out. To ease nerves use a system that tracks mail sent out like usps.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 2 yearsJesse_O (12955): 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...

Your Favorite Comic T-shirts enaz13 43 8 minutesenaz13 (250): Is the fading from the shirt being old or is it the kind that is made that way? Either way is cool, never seen one with that old original X-Men cover.

WTB TOS 39 3.0-4.0 00slim 26 5 hoursDarkseid_of_town (5203): No Slim you determine what you are willing to accept for your copy, that's all yours to choose. ….I think my point is you might have a search finding a copy in 3.0-4.0 without either the centerfold or cover having some staple issues. I am sure they are out there, just that might be a hard combination to find in the wild so to speak

Need a second opinion about youtube auction buy Arak 7 6 hoursArak (846): Thanks a lot for the advice everyone . It really helps and yes the books were presented as a little rough but they were never taken out of the bags or even lifted off his stand. Like I mentioned I could never have sent that 115 out without showing the staples and everything else. And yes Ed , I felt a little sting for the shipping as well . I know that having slept a few days and looking with a calmer head that I almost certainly wont say...
Getting the comic room going xkonk 14 6 hoursArak (846): First off ..Full props on the room so far. IMO those graded books look really good on a shelf like so . but again this is a subjective area. I saw some of these at IKEA on sale for cheap. I also heard someone got some frames there in the 3-5 range which certainly beats that $50 nonsense I have been seeing. then again SUUM CUIQUE !
The Golden Age of comics The_Watcher 3350 7 hoursCatmanAmerica (14675): More Plas, ain't new, it ain't different, but it has a Jack Cole cover! And a villain who apparently failed to research Plastic Man's origin! :beer::D .
Is Pressing Just Table Stakes Now? CatCovers 35 8 hoursArak (846): I <3 you guys ( some of you I even like ) It is my hallucination that this is like sitting down with a bunch of brothers at dinner ( only had the one sister ) or like Studly said , discussing theology or politics . Having said that , I would like to toss my 2 cents in, stating that I in no way expect or want to change anyone's mind. I strictly want to contribute as a member of the community.

Worth a resub or keep knowing oakcitycomics 14 8 hoursCaptainCanuck (2633): @oakcitycomics If it’s just $16, then sure, why not? But, you’ll also need to pay and wait for the press (unless you press books yourself).
Dune 2020 the420bandito 5 9 hourssportshort (1891): I am very excited. to me this is the greatest sci-fi book ever written. I've read many fantastic books, Foundation, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Atlas Shrugged, The Hobbit (and all of the other JRR Tolkien books) etc..., in my lifetime but Dune was the book that didn't let me sleep at night. Always after putting it down getting ready for bed, thinking about it made me turn the lights back on and continue reading until I couldn't comprehend what I was...

Christmas vs. Grade Reveal Day EbaySeller 19 20 hoursPaint_Monk (699): Totally agree. Wagner's original Grendel issues are grails of mine - and you're absolutely right, there's something "about" the look of those issues, even though I enjoyed the later release of Grendel while reading.

Superbowl LIV predictions and discussion! Jesse_O 8 23 hoursclassicaaron (8): SanFrans front four will definitely get after mahomes. it just will mahomes be able to escape the pocket and sling it down field for 50 yard gains a few times. if so they win. if Sherman and gang can take that away sanfran wins. both teams like to run on the edges so that will be very similar. should be tight either way but ill say KC takes it with mahomes just being able to make one or two ridiculous plays.

Russian posters BrianGreensnips 17 2 daysEbaySeller (1688): This poster made me think if an NPR story from a Soviet Scientist. During the Cold War he got to travel to Europe for a science event. Basically he said that after being there about a week he understood why the "Central Planning" model of Communism was doomed. In the European labs he saw they could order chemicals or equipment and it would be delivered to the lab 3 days later. In Russia they had to request lab materials through the...
