@TechnoDjinn I believe mine were listed in Grading for about 3 weeks. I am estimating though.

So your standard press and grade from Aug 6th is done and shipped out but my standard press and grade from JUNE 28TH is still in labels? Doesn't make any sense to me. I don't mind waiting my turn, but I get angry when I read stuff like this.

I sent mine in July, standard and pressing and it hasn't made any progress besides "received". Not sure if I should call and ask where it's at since when I emailed I just got an auto response with no help.

Agree, does not make any sense on the randomness of orders getting done. It is confusing. Happy for those getting their books back. And TAT seems to be getting better. I am still patiently waiting. Has been 34 weeks since June 22. I have two Golden Age books and four modern with pressing and grading no fast track. My entire order still shows processing and received. Tried to call customer service several times never received an answer.

Fortunately, it looks like Late October books are generally in grading at this point which means Turnaround time is currently at about 4 months/16 Weeks, which is getting to within a stone’s throw from their standard 12-week turnaround

I know you said generally, but why doesnt it seem like orders are being done in order? Mine is from Oct 1st and still sitting in received and many people with submissions much older than mine still have no movement. I just wish there would be an official post about how they are going through them. It gets very frustrating for people to see others get orders back that have been a much shorter wait.

@dielinfinite I hope late ocotober books aren’t being graded. Because that means they skipped my middle of September order.

My books were submitted 1st Oct and on Friday my dashboard said grading and my invoice said labels. I'm sure they'll get to your's soon as long as you have no pressing or VSP. Mine were all ASP and original art. Good luck.

@TechnoDjinn they received mine on Sept 14. And they still say received. No pressing or vsp.

@Biorobot I think it has something to do with the tiers and the graders going through each. if your order is all moderns, it wil probably move through before orders that are expanded or consumers are. Not anything official but I do think it makes a difference.

Has anyone seen movement on their Baltimore convention submissions? Last week of Sept to first week of October would be when they made it to cbcs.

My dashboard doesn’t really update anymore. I have one order on there that says shipping or labels but I’ve had the books back for like 5 months, so I can’t really trust it anymore.

Just a little heads up.. the market for getting slabs done must be Hot.. I sent some Magazines into the other "C" place and they have been there 18 weeks press and grade with "no" fast track.. and no movement.. In the past.. same thing Magazines press & grade no fast track.. 10-12 weeks.. So the grass on the other side of the fence has browned up some..

Three books in grading, excited about the possible results. They should post tomorrow. 😎👍🏾👍🏾

So it seems like I shouldn’t submit books unless they need Verified signs, because turn around times seems to be getting worse... Going to be sad when I ship out my signed Spider-Gwen Vol 2 #1H... might not see it for a year. 😩😩😩

So a heads up for people wondering. My order received on Sept 14 still marked as received. (8 modern tier and 1 consumer tier) No pressing or VSP.

IDK I was pretty happy with my TAT from back in Sept got my books back in Dec and I had fast pass and fast press along with signature verification on 2 of the 10 submitted books. I think it's worth the wait unless you're trying to turn a profit on a book. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I waited 8 months for a submission to make it back to me. I submitted just after the move and did not realize the wait. I submitted again in January, but this time I did Fast Pass. Don't think I will submit standard again.

I just got the emails that my latest submission has moved to grading! Fast Pass works. Should not be very long for this one.

Three books out of grading and shipped. Happy with the grading process on Modern books and CBCS keeping me well informed on the progress once my order was received.

So my books from late June went from labels to shipping and billing late yesterday on my invoice and dashboard. My invoice said I owed $24 for what im assuming is a tier upgrade. I tried calling a bunch of times today after work and couldn't get ahold of anyone.

Now the dash just says shipping for both my modern and expanded books. I got an email saying I'd get a tacking number soon. My invoice still says I owe $24.

I'm confused. Please charge my card if you need more money!! I want my books back! It's been sooooo long! Over 8 months! 😀

Maybe @SteveRicketts or @TimBildhauser can help. I would send them a pm with the order number to see if they can get you some information about the charge.

Good idea! I'll do that. Thanks!

Looks like my comics shipped! They are completed on the dashboard. About a week short of 8 months. Not sure about the $24 balance though as I never heard back from customer service.

I want to do a blind opening when I get them, so can anyone tell me if the tracking number will be on the dash? I don't want to poke around and reveal anything by accident. My emails from cbcs seem to be hit or miss.

Thanks!!

@Karlhungus your tracking number will be emailed to you once the books have shipped (usually about a day after the order is Completed)
