Delivered to CBCS 11/15/2021 (Yes, 2021. This is a submission of 66 Magazines that were sent to Joe at CFP Comics for Pressing and he was going to re-forward to cgc for grading. After a conversation with Steve Borock, I decided to have CFP send to CBCS as I was not in a hurry to have them back and 5 1/2 dozen would be a good batch for CBCS to run through and iron out the process of Magazine encasement. "Test Dummies" is how I referred to them. Thank you again Joe for your agreeing to alter the forwarding after you completed your Pressing services. Well, there has been movement at CBCS this past week.)

I got a repeat email that my order is in grading. My order was received March 22, went to pressing soon after (it also had sig verification), and entered grading either on the 11th or today. The invoice has been telling me 'heat seal' for about a week.

@rapturestar - The last of my 2022 submissions was just completed last week. It was delivered on 02/24/2022. Had a dozen other submissions that were received at the same time or more recently completed before this last one. Yours should be done shortly.

Cheers.

Question for the group...

With five days until the CBCS self imposed May 1 deadline, how many of you still have outstanding 2022 orders that are not yet completed?

We were waiting for a VSP/Press/Grade from May 2022, but it was completed late last week after the ones from July and August (which we got back in February).

This one is super special to me, so obsessivly checking it is an understatement. My issue is Tales of the Teen Titans 44, signed by Perez in 2016. Was my first ever comicon, mom helped me make an absolutely *hideous* nightwing costume 3 days before, but we did our best. I was chatting with a vendor who asked if I was a big nightwing fan and showed me 44, and told me Perez was right there. So of course, I bought it, went to him, nervous as can be. And just said how he loved my costume and said a story of when he was writing the comic and nightwing. I wound up going back later the next day for a sketch from him. Both of which I immensely treasure to this day. So, it being the first comic graded, has had all sorts of fun paranoia. Even if the issue comes back at like a 5.0, having the proof it's him and just the calmness that it's sealed and protected was my motivation.

I always want to look at the grades as soon as they are shipped but I use all of my self control not to, since I do unboxing videos when I receive them and want the grades to be a surprise. It kills me inside though knowing my grades are just a few clicks away for the week or so it takes for them to arrive.

So happy everyone is enjoying their new progress. Just had to send them:
just checking in again...about 22-_______. I don't see that I received a phone call nor email regarding my past inquiry. As of 4/27/23, by books have been in your possession since 1/22....a very long time and still in "processing" hell when I log in. People say that your backlog is cleared. That is not the case.

My next email to them will be.... "My books have been in your hands since January 2022. I have received no response to any of my inquiries whether through email or your forum. Maybe you can explain to me why I would want to do business with you anymore because I can't come up with anything".
