And I am not certain, but I believe that is what is considered a 2 day submission. I believe it is two days to grade and encapsulate and then ship on the third day, but I am not 100% certain on that. I know for a fact that they do NOT count the day the order is received. But regardless, two day moderns are either on time or one day behind.


Jesse_O - we all want CBCS the best - otherwise we wouldn’t be here. Think about it as we are the crooks who keep the police busy, alert and on their toes!

I think the above example illustrate one of the main issues. It would seems that not all books which were moved from Florida have been unpacked whereas books submitted in Texas get graded first. I could be wrong, but this is the perception and it is unfortunate and unfair. Books should be graded in the order received!


But that goes against the entire "2 day" order reasoning. The only way that 2 day works is that it jumps ahead of everything else, and you pay a premium for it.

Don't get me wrong mind you, the fact that my 13 week order is now on week 20 has me pretty upset. There has to be a balance somewhere. The unfortunate thing is that we are all being given the same copy/pasted email response, and told that this will eventually pass, without any real consequence for how poorly this came out. At the end of the day, we're all comic fans and we all just want our books to look their best, in a timely fashion.

I just got a call from CBCS today about my order. They are working on it but my dashboard still says submitted. Motto is don’t take the dashboard as gospel. It obviously is not being updated properly if at all.

Yeah but the 2 days fast past submitted in Dallas should not go ahead of the 2 days submitted in Florida!

Are you actually clicking on the invoices in the dashboard and opening them? I find a lot of people don't realize that once you open the invoice you can see the sub-status listed. For example all of mine say "Received" but when I open the invoice I can see they are in "Grading"

Am thrilled to report that my submission of March 22 has now been shipped. It was ten Moderns, with nothing extra whatsoever (no pressing, no autographs, just grading). Everything seems perfect. Got the shipping notice email right on time, and the grading seems perfectly consistent with the top quality CBCS grading from before the move. Could not be happier with this submission from CBCS!

Still no finished order another week down , submitted on March 12th for 65 comics

March 14 sub, 8 moderns, standard - still in grading
March 27 sub, 7 modern, 3 expanded - still in grading
...and yet @RareComics is getting his back (happy for ya btw)
This is really bordering on the ridiculous now. Contacting customer service does no good. "Look at your dashboard" I'm told. Yeah..I do that, at least 10 times a day. As I said before, graders should have been trained ahead of the move and weren't. sad.

and yet, someone who just got comics last week submitted on monday and had his books by Thursday. This is no conspiracy theory, Jesse.




You want to tell me where my books are, Jesse_O ? Hrmmmmm?

I got your conspiracy theory right here, brah

My books have no invoice numbers because @TrinityComics dropped them off at a con sometime in March and filled out the paperwork by hand. Does this sound right to you? I have nothing. No email, no invoices, nothing.

Yes. You know it.

The simple fact is... if you bought and paid for 2-day services, even before the move, there is in no way whatsoever fanboy should be pushed to the front of the line.

How come 1 variant is "Weatherman" and another variant is "Weather Man"?

Did he use his own account? If he used your email or account number for your books you should have seen those hit your dashboard months ago.

@kaptainmyke I can't tell you where your books are because, as I've stated numerous times, I do not work for CBCS. Quite honestly, why are you pissed at CBCS and not at Trinity? Trinity should have your invoice number. If they submitted under their account, they should be able to give you updates. If they submitted under your name, they STILL should have an invoice number for you. I'm not trying to bash Trinity. I've always heard good things about them. But honestly, I don't see why you are upset at CBCS about this.

If he uses his own account then the books are shipped to him first... kind of a weird way to do business, especially trying to figure out who’s books are who’s when he gets shipments!

Good luck.

I am clicking on the invoice and seeing submitted there too.

Jake, That's another issue entirely. I won't speak in public about that.



Jesse,

I am frustrated, Jesse, because of situations like the fanboy example given.

I don't know why or how "fanboy" got his comics back so fast, but I seriously doubt there is any conspiracy on CBCS's part. From what I see, that is how 2-day moderns SHOULD work.

As for your frustration ... totally legit!!!! I get it!!

My dashboard has said my submission book from feb is "shipping" for 2 weeks or so now. no grade posted.
BUT.... the book arrived in mail 4 or 5 days ago. No ones running the website I dont think.

Didn't realize about clicking on the invoice - mine still says submitted.
Although....only submitted on June 2nd at the Niagara Falls Convention, so I guess only 6 weeks in to what should be 24 weeks (pressing with no fast passes etc.)

On the plus side - when looking at the invoice I had completely forgot I sent in 3 batman family #6's!!
At least one should pull high 9's the other two 8.5 to mid 9's?? depending on clean and press and then up for sale when next suicide squad movie comes out (if I have them back by then )
