Cbcs labels Deceptionking420 20 6 monthsHulkSmash (9924): 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...

Need a little help with a submission Comicskablooey 4 3 yearsdielinfinite (26592): The Original Art option is listed with the Tiers on the right side of the submission form. You will have to also select “Verified Signature” down at the bottom and add Ron Lim as the signature you wish to have verified. The Issue title will just be something like “sketch on board” Please see the Newbie’s Guide for additional information on submitting and services provided by CBCS

FOR SALE: Iron Man #1 - CBCS 4.0 - CR/OW Pages Terry_JSA Jump to first page47Jump to last page 3 yearsTerry_JSA (86): I’m not sure how someone informing me that my price was a little unreasonable is a personal attack. Sure they may not agree with it but I also don’t want to overprice a book either.

How do you submit original art? TheBatPastor 8 4 yearsdielinfinite (26592): @TheBatPastor The only thing, and this is covered in the link, is that when you select the Slab-Only tier and add the VSP signature it won’t adjust the price automatically so the form will read $20 for slab-only + $25 for the verified signature but it should be adjusted by the staff when they receive the books

OA Collectors - thoughts on this please Jesse_O 30 5 yearsSiggy (25525): And odds are high that a slab that big will break in transit. Certainly more so than a comic slab.

Artists that you are surprised they aren't published? RyanHicks 15 6 yearsX51 (14744): It's private for now until she decides what angle to pursue. She's reestablishing herself in a new locale. She's trying different styles and themes and wants to settle into the right options for her before promoting her work. She's thinking about being a tattoo artist.
Brianna Hildebrand, Charlie Cox Signing/Sketch Opportunity CHaverlandArt 1 6 yearsCHaverlandArt (13): Hey all!

Cover work starts at $140 in b&w...$220-240 in color... and goes up from there (depending on all thats involved in the overall...
Reholder into an "Art" Slab Drahcir 5 6 yearsTimBildhauser (2239): IIRC to do it would essentially be considered a re-submission not just a re-holder so it would run $18. Like Jesse said though, double check that with Customer Service.
Looking for Mike Ploog signed comics anthonybischoff 3 6 yearsanthonybischoff (118): What do you want for them
Allen Bellman Signature question anthonybischoff 6 6 yearsBelyMedved (1): A quick note I forgot to put..... Although I am sure nobody meant anything derogatory by the word "doodles" above, I would suggest not using the word "doodle" when submitting any request to Mr. Bellman. 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 was very very...
Submitting Original Art 3319 2 6 yearsdielinfinite (26592): Yeah you need to use the same comic book form. For Series you’d put something like “Artwork on Paper,” Issue Number and Publisher can be “N/A,” and you need to add a year. Make sure you have the “Original Art” box checked. Just remember, unless you’re a CBCS Authorized Witness or went through the procedure for the artist to submit the book directly to CBCS on your behalf, your book won’t qualify to have the artist’s name...

CBCS blue ART labels DarthLego 3 7 yearsDarthLego (20518): Yeah I remember that. I've recently been thinking about starting to collect good sketch covers from artists that are otherwise unknown and therefore would not be verified for red label. I was just curious to see what other members have had slabbed in blue.
Witness approval to submission time question dalkeil 7 7 yearsJesse_O (39296): I had hoped that an AW would respond here as well, so I held off for a few hours before responding. Your best bet is going to be getting a hold of Mark Roman. He monitors Facebook fairly regular, especially if you tag him or send him a pm. He can be reached by email also. However, he doesn't frequent the forum. I know there is a time limit to get signed books in, I am not sure if it is one month or two. Anything beyond that time has to be...

CBCS Turnaround 7/11/16 SteveRicketts Jump to first page66Jump to last page 8 yearssterlingcomics (16): Having automated information as to where the company is on basic perspective I think would be a great AUTOMATED enhancement to "keep it real".
