Received my (5) books that were sent through a facilitator using fast pass at NYCC. I just received them today. I was not expecting them as I had paid for them to use CBCS for pressing which would put the TAT way out there. After reading the grading notes I have some research and questions to ask certain individuals.

17 books in the system since end of Sept, expecting standard delay/timing on these and fully accept that.

2 books processed as artwork in the system since end of Sept, 3 weeks turnaround quoted, still no movement.

1 book incorrectly processed as artwork in my last order and still awaiting an answer from CS since mid October as to how they will resolve this.

I don’t plan on using CBCS in the future. I am not really feeling their business model. Submitted books in September.... and it looks like I’m not going to get them back until February.., but they have had my money since the day they received my submission. I really hope the rest of my fellow collectors fair better than am. They aren’t even offering an inconvenience discount. Any other business would offer you something to keep a valued customer. True colors started to show during hard times.

To me its just a small hiccup, considering the hurricane they dealt with, them being bought out by Beckket, and the problem thier plastic case supplier from Houston had to deal with.

I personally do not like the new logo I prefer the old blue CBCS blue foil shield but I do like how they took measures against the opening of the cases with the foil sealing being broken.

I agree with you 100%. Was a difficult and challenging year for CBCS... I can live with delays. I do appreciate it when I'm communicated with and expectations are set or maybe re-set.

1st of all, Thank you for your private message Cwausti! I appreciated your input.

2nd, I didn't even look at it as CBCS having difficulties. I see what obstacles CBCS did, and is doing to heighten the integrity and credibility that business will carry for years to come. A big part of it was Mark Roman and the situation with AW's. Wow. I respect that highly, I see CBCS getting ready to go to the next level.

3rd Up until September, top quality! OK, so 4 slow months don't compare to 8 great ones.

I submitted all year long, from Feb till September, 104 books in total graded (including my 73 currently in grading). These are MY BOOKS, not books I am going to flip, these are books I'm going to hang on the wall. I did sell some (That AC bill I had to take care of.. lol)

CBCS had a situation with their plastic case supplier in Houston, we ALL KNOW HOUSTON was flooded and underwater, and so I am sure it forced them to look at future possible solutions if that situation was ever to arise again, not as in Flood wise, but finding a possible plan B.

My dad always asked me, "Is someone dying? Does someone need to go to the hospital?"
If the answer was "No," then chill out.

We can't control ACTS of GOD, but we can control how we respond to them. I'd rather wait for a job done with time being taken than a half a$$ed job in a rush. That is how I want my books treated.

Some people will laugh and ask why I got certain books graded as opposed to rarer ones and I have to keep my mind set to the 1st reason I got in to comic books, if certain books have invoke special memories to me, I want to encase them, regardless the grade I get them back in. Now if you want to collect and grade them because you think you will become rich quick, I'd tell you to take your money and invest it on Wall Street.. but that's just my suggestion.

Well said! I don't have hardly any "big boy books." I love collecting the more obscure books and especially autographed books. Each collector is different, which is what makes this hobby so unique and fun. Literally anyone can get into it!

My own contribution - I sent 12 books in at the end of October for normal grading (no pressing, signatures, etc.). They're still listed as 'received'. I sent another two with fast pass in mid-December and they switched to 'grading' the other day. I thought it might time out that they would be ready at the same time (fast pass sent in six weeks later makes the TAT the same), but I guess I'll get the fast pass books earlier.

My 73 books are now in Quality Control.
After they are done with my books, the process will probably be speed up.

@Gabriel85301 - That’s great, GC. I am at around 20 weeks and have been in “grading/labels” for a while now. I must have pissed off someone at CBCS.

Did you get any status emails from CBCS, or have you just been checking every day, like me?

I got separate emails today for my modern and expanded books in the single order of 12 I sent. But they went to my junk folder, and I don't think I always get email updates.

I'm prepping to submit another 20 at the end of the week at Ace Comic Con, but I'm breaking them up.

My 2018 is to get as many Ms. Marvel (vol. 1 and vol. 2) books yellow labeled. Greg Horn will be here at Ace Con, but I can't afford $20 per signature on those books at the moment. I will be squeezing in some John Romita JR. Ms Marvel Vol. 1 books in though. 2017 was my year when it came to grading and I want to keep that momentum going.

@Gabriel85301 - I didn't realize how many covers and/or interiors Joe Sinnott did on the first Ms. Marvel run. He has signed a few books for me over the last two years. If he makes it to RI or CT again I am planning on having him sign some of those for me. Good luck.

My order of 7 books, received September 29th has gone into grading so 15 weeks so far. I’m hoping no more than another 2 weeks before they’re in hand, which would nail the 17 week TAT previously posted

"Big Boy Books" - The Great Legend

Collector Gabriel85301 private msg quote post Address this user
So the other day my comics went from "Grading" to "Quality Control" to "Grading"

I received an e-mail this morning from Customer Service so I called them back around 11am Arizona time and followed up with them. No reply. So I left a message.

I admit, I was worried, figured some of my books were damaged, or lost or something.

Around 3pm, Arizona time, Jake returned my call and he asked about a Kelly Sue Deconnick Signature on a book, and I was like, "Captain Marvel #14, It was a Quoiones cover with a double signature of KSD and JQ" because it was the situation I remembered a bit back about one signature not being noted.

Then Jake Fleming remembered me, and an awesome conversation he had with my nephew back in September. (ref: https://forum.cbcscomics.com/topic/4488/page/1/mail-call--huge-thank-you-to-jake-fleming/#1)
Jake inquired how he was doing as well. I find that amazing that Jake remembered the situation, the talk, etc etc.

I get an email 5 minutes ago. "SHIPPED" ! wooh00 - I will continue to stand with CBCS. Thanks Jake for the follow up and fixing the little misconjecture.

Now the real anticipation starts.

oh wow.

If you sent them to get pressed and cleaned, I would then understand.
So they gave you a date so when they'd be shipped? Wow.
I would love it if someone told me the same instead of the lotto waiting game.
