You are probably far better off looking to the future investing your comic funds in Phantom Stranger issues, than purchasing Rick and Morty Vs. Old Man Batman, Dark Archie, and Drunken Donatello's penises #1, cover variant 56, die cut, laser etched, triple hologram red error, digitaly downloadable, send in -mail-away, fold out, unfold, fold back, inside out ,upside down, mixed with actual blood from Stan Lee, some unknown artist and Joe the guy who makes the Gyros in the sandwich shop across the street, serial numbered, limited, unlimited, supreme,superior, edge of the universe, ultra , x-, embossed, super bossy, retail incentive, free give away, commicon excusive sold on every street corner version ...because in the end one is collectible and twenty years from now no one will even remember the other one

Just got back some books from CBCS. I'm surprised the stuff graded as high as they did given my treatment of comics over the years....

Just got these venom covers. Not a huge fan of modern books, but a couple of the covers looked cool.

No. But I literally had him sign them in the 1990s at a days inn in west palm beach. I remember this stupid kid running around and knocked my books out of hand, and I'm pretty sure that's why the number 2 got a lower grade than the number 1's.

What does red web signify?

Many books Mcfarlane signed have a little red spiderweb stamp on back, as sort of an authentication thing ....I had heard he used to own a comic book store called the spider web or something similar ...

The red web looks like this....from my own copy signed in person at NYCC a few years back.

@esaravo I'm not trying to stir up trouble, but those look like scratches in the lower right corner. I've heard that CGC is having issues with scratches on the inner holder. I'm wondering if you can clarify for me what I am seeing. Are they on the book itself? Are they just from the scanner? Is just a reflection? Or are they on the inner holder? Or, I suppose, are they on the outer case? I trust your judgement on this. I tend to take these reports with a grain of salt. But honestly, your scan looks VERY similar to what I have seen. so I thought I'd ask.

@Jesse_O - There are a few scratches on the outer case in the lower right corner. I bought this book already graded/slabbed. When possible, I buy books that are in CBCS slabs, but when I see a book on my want list at a good price, I will purchase CGC slabs (believe it or not, I even own 1 of the other slabs).

@esaravo Thanks for the reply!! Glad to hear those are on the outside case.

Personally, I'm a big advocate of "buy the book, not the grade". I've had CGC slabs in my collection, but I've never submitted to them. I've never had any from "the other guy", but I'm not totally against buying one. It would weigh HEAVILY on the comic, the price and how willing I was to gamble on it. I have yet to be willing to gamble, but that day may come.

@Jesse_O - I absolutely agree, buy the book that looks good to you, regardless of the number on the slab. I have purchased lower graded books for about the same price as other books a half or whole grade higher because they looked better to me.
I have also never submitted books to any company other than CBCS. In fact, I have 30 books with them right now.

As long as you are a member and are willing to risk newton rings and getting a slab with scratches or no inner tray, sure.

You also have to worry about broken slabs from CGC because their packaging jobs are moldy ass.
