  1. Probably a minority opinion, but aside from the potential loss of the LCS I think I'm okay if the medium moves to digital and TPBs. The output of monthly comics, especially from Marvel and DC, is bloated and the glut of variants and constant events were already slowly killing the industry. Digital/TPBs might be a purer form of the medium that might allow it to go back to basics.
  2. Wait. What happened exactly? Are you saying you sent a book to a facilitator to get signed at a con and instead of providing the contracted service, the facilitator sold the book without your consent?
  3. Go with 3204 Auctions: https://cgcsubscription.com/
  4. If you're not receiving books in order it probably means some of those earlier issues couldn't be found on the day of release. Jerry will try his best to find suitable copies after the release date but it is not always possible. Other services will not put forth this kind of effort to keep your run intact.
  5. Ultimately I decided it wasn't worth my time to haggle over a few bucks. Also I believe the public service of exposing the sellers lackluster packing to potential buyers is more important than squeezing out a few extra dollars.
  6. Look up the book in Ebay's sold listings and you can see who the seller is.
  7. I'm not sure what I'd be asking the seller for in this scenario. If it was damaged I would be returning it. I think Neutral feedback is fair because the packing was subpar and the slab was VERY dirty which isn't acceptible.
  8. I'm alive. I do have a persistent cough though...
  9. Now the question of feedback. I am going to hammer the star ratings, but I think this warrants a more overt warning to potential buyers. I think neutral might be the way to go. Seller did not take proper precautions to protect the slab for shipping and the slab itself is super dirty and gross.
  10. OK. The book looks the same as it does in the listing so my concerns of SCS are subsiding.
  11. This is what it looked like in the listing:
  12. Pages are peeking out a little under the right side of the cover. Can't tell if that was like that before from the pics in the listing. Might be nothing or it could be something.
