Hello Halo3460

Collector keefriffhards private msg quote post Address this user
In the Overstreet Guide a couple pages is given over to the Australian grading company called Halo... (never seen any of their comics here in the US on eBay or anything), but from what I can tell (just got the book) no mention of PGX. Halo claims to be 100% Overstreet in their grading.

speaking of Overstreet Guide and since the other thread got archived...I'm loving this Overstreet's Guide to Grading Comics they put out. great visuals and examples with talking points given on each grade

I've never seen a halo book on ebay before

I bid on a Halo graded comic in an auction yesterday. Not sure if we can post them on this forum. I'm going to guess that would be blocked also.

I sort of hoped CBCS is not threatened and possibly is not concerned about HALO info... I don't think anyone is going to go that route.. unless you love Australia or something...

If they've been around since 2013 the website is not user friendly for submissions or invoices. everything looks like its email or snail mail only. meh

it is interesting that all 3 are mentioned in the third party graders section of my Overstreet Guide to Grading Comics, CGC, CBCS, and HALO. Only them, too.

They are technically not allowed to be posted, because CGC is the only other company CBCS has officially recognized as legitimate. HALO is still very new though, and an Australian company, so of little competition to either of the big two US companies. Hopefully they turn out to be a good thing for the collectors down under.

I've run across a couple on e-Bay. I think the ones I saw were self-proclaimed "prototypes". Kinda cool if ya think about it.

The fact that "Halo" is also a huge sci-fi franchise with games, books, and comics makes searching for these especially hard too. They didn't think out their branding very well lol.

Apparently there is a 5 book minimum for standard grading.

Yeah. I just searched "Halo graded".

Of course, not everyone says "CBCS Graded" in their listing title. Some just say the brand & number grade.

All the Halo game related stuff made it tricky.

What I did was search "Halo comic" then sorted by most expensive.

I love the link to their US Site with 'Del Stewart' being the contact... I think it is just a guy who ships them off for you and takes your money...

@keefriffhards even their Australian site doesn't have any invoicing features, everything by email. Which is why I called them still #New despite being 4 years old. Look how far CBCS has come in only 3 years.
