  1. Hi guys just want to get peoples thoughts on this message I’ve recieved from a member called bigclutch I’ve checked out his profile and there is nothing on there. My first thought is this is a scam of some description just want other members thoughts and possibly warn other members about this guy.

    “Hey! Shoot me your address. I've got a little something we'd like to send you for TWD's 15th Anniversary. 

    -shawn

    Hi have recently bought this comic and will be sending it in to get graded but just wanted to see what label CGC will give it. Below is all about the comic but it’s the bottom paragraph that got me thinking it won’t come back a blue label. Thanks for taking the time to read my post I look forward to hearing back from anyone 

    Publisher* - Image

    Series Title* - WALKING DEAD

    Issue(s)* #1 variant

    Cover Date* 2004

    This Museum Edition version of The Walking Dead #1 was made shortly after the original comic came out as part of a promotion for the Fear Fest Horror Con around mid-Ohio in 2004. However, due to slow vendor sales the con was cancelled. After that, the comic books were kept in storage for about a decade before resurfacing again. The intent was to give the comics to the top tier ticket buyers in their ticket package. There were gold stickers made that were going to be applied on the back cover above the numbering that showed the Fear Fest Horror Con name along with the promotion company's name on it; however, since the con was cancelled, the stickers were never affixed and are now long gone.

    This comic has a prestige cover printed by Quebecor and is limited to 100 copies; most of which still have not been released into circulation making it one of the most rare walking dead books in existence. The inside is black and white and printed on a high quality paper. Each comic is hand-numbered

    Greetings,

     

    I'd like to send in a book for reslabbing and I'd like to know if the following would be accepted: I have a CGC 9.8 copy #6 of The Walking Dead. The image on the front is a black silhouette of Rick holding a shovel. I've now noticed these small, white dots in the black ink areas of this image. They appear to be on the inside of the plastic holder and not on the comic itself, which is what I'm praying for.

     

    I'd like to send this in for the reholder service -- will this be accepted? The submission rules mention reholding service for "chipped, scratched or cracked holder that has not been opened or had its seals broken" only?

     

    I dont (and would never) want to open the item on my own to determine where these spots are, but I don't want these spots inside my slab. And I'd also like to be sure these spots aren't on my comic -- they were not present when I sent this item in for grading the first time (which is why I received the nice 9.8 grade).

     

    Thank you for your time and assistance.

    Hi did the spots get removed once your comic got reholdered? I'm only asking as I have the same problem and hope they are not on the comic

    Here is an idea, give him a comics that you wouldn't mind being shred to pieces. Get him those paw patrol, Simpson, looney toons, etc.... this way he'll have something to play with while you get to keep the ones you like. Plus you'd never know, he might grow up following the old man's hobby 

    Thanks for the idea I have already tried this unfortunately with no success he likes to get his hands on things he knows he's not allowed then destroys  them he's a bit like a puppy at the moment I can't wait for this faze to end. he even got hold of my work diary and ripped every page out of it, chewed on a few pages and ripped up the rest. I lost a lot of business that week. I now leave my diary in my van lesson learnt. I've had to resort to duck taping the lids onto the long boxes I have in the spair bedroom/ office every day I come home there are baby teeth marks and stress marks on the lid where he has tried to get in. I just hope he doesn't figure out how to get through duck tape. I have never know a child to be so obsessed with paper!

    What are you doing with your comics that they need protected in a case like that? I don't even understand why people use top loaders.

    I have a 2 year old that gets everywhere and likes to rip pages out of books and magazines. i hide them the best I can but when I'm at work he runs around the house terrorising my wife and she can't keep tabs on him every second I have long box after long box of comics and try to slab all the valuable ones to make sure they don't get destroyed while I'm at work. By my little monster 


  6. Image comics release there 25th anniversary blind box which has been selling on eBay for upwards of $300 due to there only being 1992 boxes made. Each box contains 25 random comics, so in all the 1992 boxes there are 49,800 comics up for grabs. Out of these 49,800 comics there are 500 here's Negan comics which is the main reason people are buying these boxes. Now I didn't know until I opened up my box and found one that There is also 25 blank sketch covers of here's Negan printed with original artwork on the covers. These sketch covers as you can imagine are every walking dead fans dream my question is do I send it in to get graded with the dreaded green label or leave it raw? Also would the green label put people off buying it if I came to sell it at a later date? Below is my here's Negan sketch cover
