Any Upstate NY / Great Northeasters out there remember FantaCon? dfoster43 1 14 daysdfoster43 (219): It was 1980 and my first 'big' comic convention was in my back yard. What a day. I'm sure I don't have to go into detail, it was probably exactly like everyone's first convention. But what memories this brings back of those days. I can almost smell the fall Albany air. Albany was my stomping ground and FantaCo was my LCS as John S Iavarone was incredibly rude to anyone under 21 that dared enter his place I never went there much....

Comic ID not being Found arktech 6 5 monthsStudley_Dudley (29890): @arktech I ran into this issue recently with a reholder. When I emailed customer service about it, the instructions were to basically put it in as a new grading submission but note on the invoice that it is for a reholder. I would write in nice big, Sharpie with highlighter. The invoice should be adjusted when CBCS receives it. If not, then just email customer service about it and it will be adjusted. That's what I did. Just to show that...

Does cbcs just reslab? cesidio 6 1 yeardielinfinite (19830): I can’t imagine they would
Preserving Treasury Editions Noblebeast315 30 1 yearNoblebeast315 (1640): @sborock that’s an incredibly valid point to make. I don’t see myself having a collection of Treasury Editions, but honestly I don’t know a whole lot about them to begin with. I see Steve’s stake in this as checking the pulse of this kind of demand, before taking a trip down that road. I can say this though, I am still interested in having my Treasury edition book graded raw. Probably will not make it to your grading desk post though!
Mail Call Magazine Edition Hcanes 6 1 yearinfinityG (1207): Nice books! LOM and TF UK 113 are my list! I've recently picked up some beautiful high grade Bronze Age Horror and Barbarian Mags. Hoping for some CBCS magazine slab news comes soon.

Mighty Marvel Superheroes Cookbook --- and other non-comic grading ComicJay 2 2 yearsthe420bandito (7910): I've seen trade paperbacks slabbed for whatever reason so I can't see this being out of the question. I would email customer service before shipping anything off though.
Spot the Difference ONLINE_209 19 2 years00slim (12647): I was under the impression that the Spidey 1 Gold newsstand edition was a Wal-Mart Exclusive. I’d heard that somewhere, anyway.

Captain Britain comics jmckenna43082 5 2 yearsRRO (1427): I am sure that CBCS and "others" would not grade ones that have premiums taped to the cover.
Weekly cover contest #159 - Evil Twin Lenovations Jump to first page94Jump to last page 2 yearsGAC (34799): not sure what the "winner" actually wins other than the work of putting up the new contest thread and thinking of a topic that hasn't already been done. To me, it's about looking at cool books that I may want to pick up.

The Maxx 1/2 error on foil cover Airmomo 10 2 yearsAirmomo (24): They also put it in its own category in the cgc census labeling it as wizard presents the Maxx. I thought they would have put it with the other variants of this cover. Any idea if that will effect the value good or bad?

Current Pull List stanley1883 21 3 yearsstanley1883 (46): Ok so heres my take so far. Mera: Queen of Atlantis is great, seriously awesome. Well done DC Die! Die! Die!- I'm underwhelmed by the first issue, Kirkman's never let me down before so i may give issue 2 a chance, but issue 1 was meh, felt like the same old thing. New Lieutenants of Metal- super fun and campy book, has a great playlist with it, just a fun comic for those that also like hard rock, as Boy Band Nation are the...
Diamond damages... An ongoing epidemic! JLS_Comics 12 3 yearsJLS_Comics (5463): In the video in the OP, he talks about a possible solution. Instead of 2 medium boxes crammed in to a large diamond box at 50-60 lbs (enough that the USPS person doesn't want to carry it) do just one with padding between the medium and large. Shipping costs will go up a little, but the other costs will go down and so will the frequency damages (which means lost sales, storage costs, etc). Most damages on the books come at the corners where...
I miss Wizard magazine 00slim 30 3 yearsDrogio (6836): Speaking of price guides...I loved getting comic values monthly (CVM) every month...I had a subscription for a while... It had some quirks, like not listing golden age books and would not provide any explanation as to why some series either started off at a strange number (I.e., Captain America 100) or there were missing issues (Incredible Hulk jump from issue 6 to 102). But that made it a mystery early in my collecting hobby and made me...

Geppi Museum Closing Jesse_O 9 3 yearsrickdod3 (524): Comic book men didn't even scratch the surface. An amazing channel I'm subbed to called "Comic Trips" did an in-depth tour of Geppi Museum. It is fantastic! It's an all-around awesome channel! You should check it out...also, here is the video I mentioned!

The original art I sacrificed keys for... Darkga 29 4 yearsBrianGreensnips (10336): That is so darn cool. Thanks
CBCS Raw Grade: odd sized books Saint_Doyle 14 4 yearsHomer (1010): The taller size created a perfect storm for eliminating high grade copies, if one stored them with Warren magazines the top edge was crunched. I'm in utter amazement of the quality of that top corner posted by the OP. I have looked at a lot of Warrior mags, and have never seen the top corner of a #1 anywhere near that sharp.
ETA on Magazine-Size Encapsulation c2t2merch 23 4 yearsScorpion (904): just messing with you steve, i do hope it all works out and that we can start the Encapsulation of Magazine-Size books. ill keep my fingers crossed.

Dark Nights: Metal - likes! and dislikes? ZosoRocks 7 4 yearsDrogio (6836): The batman who laughs is the best thing coming out of this arc. It's the only reason I'm paying attention and the only disappointment is that he's had a limited part so far...but it's just leaving me wanting to see and know more about him! Definitely hit on something bid here if they stay the course with this character. Speaking of which I'm going to start a thread to see what people consider his first appearance (cameo or otherwise). ...

Comics Heating Up neyko 27 4 yearsTedsaid (7340): I'm not sure I believe that.
Total Comic Mayhem neyko 28 4 yearsDocBrown (16886): Just for information's sake, the Canadian Newsstand price variants were published from Oct 1982 to Aug 1986 for Marvels, and Oct 1982 to Sep 1988 for DCs. Archies had the same program, but it lasted longer, into the early 90's. The disparity in the US and Canadian dollars became too great by early 1982, so the publishers had to come up with a way to designate that...hence the "Can" prices that began with the price logo change (the...
WILL IT FIT FOR ME TO SUBMIT ONLINE_209 4 4 yearsdet_tobor (814): Could you contact customer service to make sure of no other surprises?
Would you put a collectors box in a slab? det_tobor 18 4 yearsshrewbeer (13216): Sure. Slabs are a big part of history at this point. If there were a (hypothetical) auction of say, the very first slab produced by CGC, or the first prototype, I'm sure there would be some collector interest

When will cbcs start to grade magazine size? Johnnyonthespot 22 4 yearsdpiercy (4191): 5 years
The 15 Worst Things That Ever Happened To Superman Dshel61 12 4 yearsTowmater (8835): I guess the author felt that putting the indisputable truth that Superman having to be a part of the train wreck Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was the worst thing to happen to the character had to be avoided. After all, it would have just shortened the list to 1 item. The other examples on the list pale in comparison and seem trivial.
My Anniversary Gift Has Been Chosen! 00slim 19 4 yearsDrogio (6836): Congrats, btw. Coming up on 9 myself in a few months. All 9 happy bliss.

Help With My TMNT #1 (3rd Print) 00slim 23 4 yearsCopperAgeKids (3715): It's pretty much a $30 book, in that grade. I'd say scan the FC and BC in, , disclose the defect (3rd print partially erased) put a BIN of $30 + $10 Priority Shipping and it'll sell.

Raw vs. Graded therealtimmyp 7 5 yearsesaravo (60598): Don't forget that the slab certifies not only the book's condition as in its grade, but also if the book has been conserved or restored, and if a signature (or several) are legit. Once you purchase it, you can remove it from the slab if you want, or leave it be. But you will have the piece of mind knowing that the book hasn't been restored and/or that the signature(s) is/are real.

Comic Auction Site Advice tonnage71 6 5 yearsFoghorn_Sam (3732): Hey no problem. I really like how ComicConnect does their end of auction, makes it more like a real live auction, giving everyone a fair chance before the auction closes, unlike a set cutoff time where snipping is rampant. I wish the other auction sites would do this. I've noticed Ebay has begun running some live auctions similar to this also.

Official Joe Madureira Appreciation Thread Soma 8 5 yearsDespain (1618): @Soma Thanks for sharing that, Soma. Very interesting. Now that you mentioned it, I can see the horse skull details as part of the rune. Pretty cool that Joe Mad has inspired you artistically. Are you planning your own comic book? It might be interesting if you used your own characters as your next body art. You'd be your own walking advertisement. I bet it has helped Joe when people ask him about his tats.
