Please help me identify Doc21 3 3 monthsDoc21 (6): Ok, thank you. I gave his stuff a look. Similar. I couldn’t find anything with a signature to compare his against the one on this one so I guess the search continues. Thank you again because that is more than I had before.

Is Frank Miller Signature/Remaque/Head Sketch/Full Figure Sketch worth it? paulwhng Jump to first page33Jump to last page 4 monthsmulti007 (4063): You are correct. I remember reading an article where he was at a local comic bookstore last year and he signed one free book Per person.
Spawn Cover Contest!!! flanders 7 4 monthsSiggy (25525): Aw, I never pay close enough attention to what's going on. Maybe he'll do something like this again. I have many inking works-in-progress I haven't touched in years, including a Medieval Spawn piece I purchased from Julius Dean Abrera. It needs a coloring (likely digital), but I haven't been motivated enough for the search or the expense.
Cbcs labels Deceptionking420 20 6 monthsHulkSmash (9979): I asked Steve Borock quite a while before he left if I could get a custom notation some Batman knight fall books; if even as a slab only. I wanted to do some sort of “in memory of” notation for my brother being his favorite Batman arc. I followed up and got an indefinite answer of not being able to get a definitive answer. I took it as a soft no due to the subject matter. He did say he was going to bring it up in a meeting of some sort, but...
Grading original art Comicbookslover 6 7 monthsSteveRicketts (18543): You can do an 8.5"x11" piece through the Magazine service as Original Art. No grade, but it is preserved in the magazine sized slab. I believe if it is sent in on your behalf by the artist you can get it done via ASP. If you submit it yourself, it would have to be authenticated. Only the signature is authenticated, not the artwork. If the artist isn't well known, they may not be able to authenticated it. Call customer service and ask...

Order says SHIPPED, but no movement… WndrWmn74 6 1 yearmulti007 (4063): Shipping from Texas has been delayed for about 2 weeks due to the ice storms. My Steve Rickets sketch cover said "shipped" starting on Jan 25. But fedex JUST picked it up yesterday from cbcs. Even My Comic Shop has been shut down for about 2 weeks now.

Does CBCS's signature verification count with sketch covers? SoulReaverDan 8 2 yearsPolarisNuclearSS2020 (1124): No sketches can be verified, at all. To be credited on the CBCS label by the individual who drew the sketch, the sketch & signing must be done in the presence of a CBCS authorized ignature witness.
Thoughts on blank cover for specific sketch idea? Sebastsk8 4 2 yearsSebastsk8 (2354): @James42 very good point - may have to limit it to the more well known symbiotes. @dielinfinite awesome, yeah I'm actually thinking more along the lines of remarques than sketches probably for the border as there wouldn't be much room for detail, just hopefully enough to get the point across which symbiotes they are. If I limit it to like 8 that would give a good portion of the center for a more detailed version of either venom or knull - and I...

What do you Grade? stanley_1883 17 3 yearsCaptainTim (14): I love Golden Age comics.
Question about Billing Skcatch 4 3 yearsxkonk (17719): @Skcatch I don't think they split orders, although from the forum it sounds like they might occasionally these days. I would assume it's just that they can't charge you for the prescreened books until they know what they're slabbing and what they aren't.

Got Some ART Labels Back ThorneArt 9 3 yearsEddieTheComicGuy (927): Awesome sketch covers everyone!!! I’m gonna send some of my sketch covers for that yellow label!!!
Should i send this off to get slabbed jddtjd123 16 3 yearsflanders (25744): Maybe the local artist can become verified with CBCS and be able to send in this and other artwork directly through his/her own account so it won't be subject to the increase cost of a verified signature. You may then be able to get the yellow art label at a greatly reduced cost. I would personally do what others have suggested and try to find a local presser to improve the appearance and get a $10-$15 frame for it.

First Mail Call of 2021! dielinfinite 6 4 yearsdielinfinite (26607): @Nuffsaid111 @HulkSmash Thanks!

What is this? And can I remove it? Cheese 17 4 yearsjaysonslade (198): For clarity... I never said I agree with keeping a comic covered up in tissue paper and not enjoying it. I also never said to not display and enjoy your sketch covers. I did say that I thought it had a logo printed on it, but I see now that was clearly the logo on the cover showing through the tissue paper. I'm totally into collector doing whatever they want... because I do whatever I want. And I would never ever ever ever under any circumstance...

Anyone relying on their comic collection to pay for retirement? agamoto Jump to first page47Jump to last page 4 yearsdrchaos (27898): I don't have a time machine but I did have the foresight to take good care of the roughly 2,800 books I bought between 1984 and 1994. I left collecting around 1994 and came back into the hobby as a dealer when my mother moved to California in 2009 to be with my brother's children. It was much easier to stay away from comics when storing my collection was easy. The learning curve involved with selling comics has been a long one but it has...

Sketch Cover Question DarthHam 8 5 yearsBuzbe (158): P.s. stop damaging the dust cover that way the don’t you not damaging the overall value as a whole set. Many people like me see the book as incomplete because the dust cover is a part of the finale press release unlike clear plastic bag some people convent.
Blackcat #1 Mike Mayhew Cover GanaSoth 10 5 years00slim (17791): I was excited to meet Adrienne Barbeau at a small local Con a couple years ago. It was $20 or $25. She signed my Swamp Thing POP & took a pic with me & my wife. She was super sweet. If it were $50+, I wouldn’t have done it. I’d have wanted to, but ultimately wouldn’t. Now, if it were like Joss Whedon? “Take my money”!
Going to wizard world Philadelphia next month Manonfire 7 5 yearsxkonk (17719): A rule of thumb I've seen before in terms of dollar value is don't slab unless the book is worth at least $100. If you're getting it slabbed for sentimental reasons, slab whatever you want. In terms of cons you can get to, last year I went to Keystone Con in Philly. They're supposed to do it again this year if Philly is convenient to you. Not really any announcements in terms of guests yet though.

Help looking for trustworthy site of original/signed art enaz13 13 6 yearsIronMan (6210): Comicartfans is not really a place to buy art. The vast majority of art there isn't listed for sale. It's collectors showing their stuff off. Perhaps best for comicartfans is their sales links. Search an artist or character and you can look at listings of art for sale. Most of the listings will be by dealers and they are just links to their sites. Several dealers don't list prices and you have to call. Perhaps what is most annoying...

My Turn to Ask for a Grade Opinion Drogio 11 7 yearsKhumbu (199): It's funny, from what I can tell it is a book I would normally grade about 5.0 - 5.5 or so in my store. I just don't like those large color breaking creases. It also depends if the "punch thru hole" goes into the pages. Although I would be very careful to mention that flaw, it may be considered "pieces missing" by the grading guide. :(

Signature identify KingNampa 10 7 yearsX51 (14744): I'm not disputing that. I'm just letting people know that it's obviously changed over the years. Jim Shooter seems to be spelling out his name more fully now. It might be because I started a running joke that I didn't know who "Shoop" was. Others picked up on it and I saw my joke comment posted elsewhere.

Kav is Awesome #CreepEngine DarthLego 3 8 yearsconditionfreak (11292): Kav was one of the few that was nice to me across the street, after my banning. He was not the only one. But one of a very few. I appreciate that fact. When the going gets tough, you find out who your friends really are. We ain't close friends, but internet friends. I don't want to put anyone else down. But Kav seems to be about as fair and balanced as anyone I have met on the internet. There are a few more for sure, but very few.

The only information it can really supply is if a certain title and issue number has no submissions in a certain grade at all.
