    current turn around rates at CGC

    My 5 books were received 9/18, I'm getting some of them pressed, so I probably get them in 2020! (the status just says "Received")
  2. I thought I was the only one to buy books in Nov, wrap them up, put my own name on them and put them under the Christmas tree

    ComicLink 2018 Show 'em if you got 'em

    Got these - they're still at CLink, because I can add one more book and combine shipping One of 3 in 9.8, highest graded This book is also one of 3 books in 9.8, highest graded: Well, I got these in total - just need #10 now, sigh ;-) (9.6 is the highest graded for #4.)
  4. I'm not sure I've lost interest, but I'm close to completing several of my runs - or the books/mags I'm missing are so extremely rare that I'm more or less out of buying options. Feels like I'm a lonely spider in the web, the time between great meals just keeps increasing... Maybe it's a good thing with more time for saving up for bigger and better things - unless prices increase with the same speed I'm saving up
  5. Thanks, maybe I should have moved this thread long ago - I have some more scans I've been too lazy to upload - I still save scans of new 9.8 books
  6. Indeed I guess Barry needed vacation, so covers to #12, #17-18 and #23 were done by Kane. And I think Barry used an older drawing for #16.

    Preservation considerations for CGC book collectors by Rune

    Just moved this old journal - hope it fits in here

    CGC Journals migrated!

    Scott just informed me that all my journals have been moved: Personal announcements and topics CGC Registry Bronze Age Comic Books Comics General I think I forgot one journal, maybe I can find that one later If nothing else is possible - it would be great to see more old journals in "Personal announcements and topics", I'm already starting to feel lonely PS. There's music in there too
  9. Just testing :-) This thread has just been moved from "Old Journals", but I think it fits better in here! ;-)

    CGC Journals migrated!

    Couldn't agree more. I've just asked Scott and Dena to move and unlock all my journals - I've asked them to move my journals to different sub-forums, so the journals will probably be scattered around the entire forum. I've deleted all the new "migrated journals", I figured I'm not going to continue in that format anyway (and kind of depressing to start with a view count of 0) - so for now none of my journals are migrated, they're just locked. BTW, locking old threads aren't very stimulating - it gives you the impression that such threads are a burden and unappreciated - in fact it got me to think if it's time to quit and do something else - and I wouldn't be surprised if Doc Joe is thinking exactly the same (I'm sure he's aware of what's happening right now). I believe that the moderators were trying to be nice and to help us with the transition to a new improved and much better place, unfortunately that was not at all what their members/customers wished for. There're several small sub-forums in here with few readers/visitors, I'd love to keep "old journals" one of them - and feel free to close it when new posts haven't been written for 3 months ;-)

    CGC Journals migrated!

    I'm not fond of the new journal format too. Personally I don't understand the need to move (=kill) all these nice old journals (Doc Joe's journal has more than 600,000 views) - these journals have taken countless of hours to make and some during many years. Would it really hurt to keep the old journals forum in respect to the boardies who spent so much time writing them? - Especially when new journals can't be created and thus the "old journals forum" is no competitor to the new journal format? I think the old journals are a fun part of the CGC Forums' history that should be honored. Scattering the old journals over a lot of CGC forums will just make them harder to find for readers, I don't see any advantage to that solution. Or - if it's really needed - maybe all old journals could be moved to "Personal announcements and topics" and unlocked? - I don't feel these nice old journals really fit in other CGC forums.

    Ditch Fahrenheit's Journal

    This must be the place we go to when we're dead, it feels strange to be here - some accident must have happened The last thing I remember was driving at night, it was raining hard - couldn't really see if a big truck was getting close or if it just was the street lights.

    Is your collection normal?

    I think it's free to become a new member - are you completely sure you need to purchase anything? As long as I can remember it's been free to become a member and to register your books - purchasing anything should only be relevant if you want to submit books to the CGC for encapsulation:

    Ditch Fahrenheit's Journal

    Yes, but I prefer to speak English with Norwegians and Swedes - although it feels kinda weird :-) Good to know some Vikings did make it beyond Greenland

    Is that ... Norwegian? My Viking-sense just started tingling
