Does @WMorse save his favorite radio stations in the Jokermobile in the order of his favorites (presets 1 thru 6), or the correct way in the order of channel frequency (lowest to highest)?

Maybe a 9.4? Really nice book. I'm not sure what those post-Wrightson issues go for these days.

Interior I could kinda see but that big a hit for tanning? My hulk 181 9 6 has more tanning than the Spider-man 2099 if I recall correctly. Also I bought all my 2099 books at the same time. Stored same way and just had a 6 qty submission come back as all 9.8.

I sent in a Madame Xanadu 1 I put at 9.2. It came back 8.5, and I had totally missed the interior cover.

Crack it out and resubmit it.
Get that 9.8...
Remember, there are new graders in there right now. Black is white.
Tanning is a dust shadow. a 9.8 is a 9.4????????

If I do a cpr it will be months from now when things settle. There is no way I'd risk getting that same grader right now. And it isn't just one copy. There were multiples in this submission. The same cut and paste on all notes....

Oh and zero mention on Canadian price variant on 1st kiloowog or double cover on venom book. So many errors so little gas in my tank.....

So maybe I expect too much, but I am getting back a set of books from cgc after over a year. It looks like their tier for graders notes has hit as low as 8.0 with no notes....

@Bronte - That’s why CGC graders notes are free now. How can you charge for something that doesn’t exist?

I have no idea. I just noticed in an MCS auction that it was getting into price competition with ASM 300.

To see a raw copy of 238 approaching a grand is unusual. Graded copies hardly get up that high.
I'm kind of glad to see it, but I don't see what is pushing it.

TL;DR Davethebrave private msg quote post Address this user
Currently all of the streaming services are belong to us. Considering trimming. Anyone else revisiting mix?

100% Keepers:
* Amazon Prime (overall best value by far considering other Prime benefits)
* HBO Max (best show and movie catalogue overall, Discovery+ layered soon)

Unclear:
* Netflix (several shows we watch, broadest range of Kids content and we have two kids… likely keeper)
* Hulu (wife watches some shows…)

Likely cut:
* Disney+ (Disney catalogue, kids may eventually like more of the content but can add this back in the future)

Not a fan of wasteful spend. We now have a good sense of actual usage over time, particularly with kids.

Have you thought of the free streaming services that have ads?

I use Tubi and all it took was just downloading the app on my kindle.

They have the old Dark Shadows tv show.
The old Batman and Shazam tv show. And other stuff, you do get ads but it's free so that's always good.

I've been rethinking streaming services, too, and I agree with your assessment.

We use Amazon for a number of services and did before streaming was a possibility. So my wife and I see their streaming service as icing on the cake.

I really like HBO Max. It's the streaming service that I watch most. I'm a classic movie buff so I watch quite a bit from the TCM hub.

Netflix I recently canceled but I am thinking of restarting it so that I can watch Sandman.

Disney+ I only have because I get it free through a family member. My kids (16 and 13) almost never watch it. I seldom do, either.

Definitely, we have used free (ad supported) streaming in the past and continue to in addition to the paid services.

Anything that has a lower tier “ad supported” option but also costs $ will be cut, however, if we decide to adjust the mix.

The tough call is when there are must see shows. The only Disney+ show we’d really miss is The Mandalorian. Of course nice to be able to watch some earlier MCU too. We also watched Loki but by the end of the season we were less intrigued. Maybe we’ll just get Disney+ for one month per year lol.

HBO is different because of the depth. Not a lot of kid-friendly content that we’re aware of so that still means Netflix is likely a must-have…

Do you all pay for Disney Plus? Everytime I tell the family we don't need it, they tell me that we don't pay for it. They could be liars though.
