Help looking for trustworthy site of original/signed art enaz13 13 3 monthsIronMan (2872): 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 personal view, and I know many will disagree.... 1- Im NEVER in a hurry, enough to pay the ridiculous premiums for ANY of the so called "Expedient" services, (Fast pass, 2-Day, quickstream etc), all are nothing more than marketing ploys designed to extract more money from the customer, and more often than not those fees are more than the book itself is worth. 2- I don't believe the book...

As @SpiderTim said, they will verify the signature but they won’t say that the sketch was done by that person. Something like this book ...

Despite being initially attached to the book, it is not considered an actual “part” of the book, and would be better described as packing material....

In discussing the time and atteniton he puts into his work, he noted to me that "I don't do doodles; I do art." Just thought that might be helpful. And as for how much the cover ran me.....it was very very...

WTB - Uncanny X-Men #101 ThorneArt 5 10 monthsThorneArt (649): Nothing like a restoration check, I just figured that it would be easier and more cost efficient to get a graded copy than it would be to get a raw copy and pay to get it graded myself.

My Turn to Ask for a Grade Opinion Drogio 11 1 yearKhumbu (196): 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. :(
Sketch Definition Nuffsaid111 14 1 yeardielinfinite (8842): @obiwan1971 I know for a fact that is not true 100% of the time. When you submit a signed book, there isn't a space for you to put "sketched by," or "remarked by" so most books are submitted without a definition provided by the submitter. I also submitted the following book with a note written on the invoice, "remarked by Joe Rubinstein" and it was still noted as a sketch on the label ...

I'd certainly go that route before buying from a local shop. I picked one up the week it was released that way, because my local shop was doing a raffle for their copy. Luckily, the copy I picked up from eBay was stellar. Haven't sent it in yet, but will with my next batch... Keep hoping Deodato will make his way to the West...

CBCS blue ART labels DarthLego 3 1 yearDarthLego (20491): Yeah I remember that.

Signature identify KingNampa 10 1 yearX51 (9670): 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.

Slab Worthy? Please help Grayspeedster 10 2 yearsGrayspeedster (406): Good point. I do plan on taking pictures! The grades are all NM for the most part. The few that I'm not sure about I'm gonna have LCS grade and if they are below NM I'll look for upgrades or not have them graded at all. But I'll always keep in mind that I can scan and get your opinions. Well, I plan on keeping them for life, but they are investments so my future kids can have them when I pass. To sell or keep is up to them!

Mail Call Part 1 Tanis 5 2 yearsTanis (43): @dpoercy I love that a signiture that I have obtained in person can be verified by a third party. I wouldn't do it with a comic I bought with a signature already on it unless I know it is from a reputable comic book shop, it is also much more expensive that way round! I must have spent at least 9 hours waiting around in queues getting all four of those signatures on that Hit-Girl

Changing ART labels to Graded? DarthLego 18 2 yearsRyanHicks (1942): As long as you ship it in uncracked with the original yellow ART label and submit it as a normal graded book (not a reholder), then CBCS will grade the book and retain the yellow label. The book can still be cracked by a CBCS AW and resubmitted for grade and it will retain the yellow label as long as the AW does everything correctly.
