  1. It really is funny--I almost never use the Registry. A very small number of my CGC books have even been entered to my Registry account; I just forget it exists for long stretches of time. Maybe because I don't have any sets worth registering? I know how you feel. I actually discovered the registry before the boards, in 2015, but didn't add anything. Then I did discover the boards, but didn't add any books to the registry still until like 2018 ha. I don't expect to have too awesome a registry, I like what I have though What I mainly use it for is there's a place for pics of all you're books, or when you enter a book you can add pics. Long and short of it is, having all the pics of the slabs there, I don't have to go dig a book out to look at it. Or wonder if I had that book and lose track and go looking through boxes. Basically it helps with record keeping, as long as, you delete books from your registry when you no longer own
  2. I very much liked the 1st Gen label, but I don't use the Registry much. When holding a book up close I think it's the nicest looking of the labels, but it has the most obvious downsides for things like convention wall browsing. or even after paying on websites, the 1st gen label can be hard to read, while you're waiting for delivery and adding to the registry to tide you over. But as far as simplicity, I like the 1st gen
  3. I remember when you started this but didn't remember the completed piece, thanks for posting! Awesome
  4. That's a nice copy! I like yellow covers but green may be my second fav
  5. When I saw this title I totally thought this is what you were talking about, slang, and had never heard it before From dictionary.com B or b WHAT DOES B MEAN? B is an affectionate term for a loved one. It is often times used to address a homie, ya girl, or ya moms.
  6. I mentioned champions because I thought the story had to be well done? But just not as collected?

We are really excited for Sandra to join the CGC signing lineup, and we look forward to having Ms. Marvel fans submit their books for this rare opportunity!” “We are once again thrilled to partner with CGC for another superhero signing,” says Stephen Shamus, President of ACE Universe. “Kamala Khan’s character has become popularized through comics, toys, video games and more, and having Sandra Saad for her first signing ever is amazing.

  8. Comic Industry Legend & Extraordinaire Bob Layton Joins the CGC In-House Private Signing Lineup Posted on 9/25/2020 Comic legend Bob Layton is coming in for a CGC In-House Private Signing! Layton is an American comics writer, artist, designer and editor; with over 6,400 comic books credited to his name – a creative yardstick rivaled only by the late Stan Lee. Layton is most noted for his work on Marvel Comics titles such as Iron Man and Ant-Man, and for co-founding Valiant Comics. Layton’s overhaul and relaunch of Iron Man in the 1970s moved that character from the cancellation list to one of Marvel’s most popular to this day. Also, while at Marvel, Layton launched the first mini-series in comics’ history with his highly-praised Hercules: Prince of Power. That series, which Layton wrote and drew, spawned several successful sequels, a graphic novel and is still available to this day. Layton also launched the record-breaking comic series X-Factor for Marvel. As well as titles like The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Power Man and Iron Fist and Micronauts. In addition to comics, Layton was also the co-creator of the new Ant-Man franchise and many of the characters appearing in the hit Marvel films Ant-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp including the Ghost. Layton was also instrumental in the creation of the successful Iron Man movies. “I have truly missed connecting with comic fans during this comic con hiatus,” shared Layton. “But having an opportunity for fans to submit their books for a signature and CGC grading in one location seems like the very best that 2020 can offer us! I also can’t wait to see what you all send in!” For this exclusive event, ALL CGC members — that includes free CGC members — can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Friday, November 20, 2020. If the CGC In-House Private Signing needs to be rescheduled CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled. After Layton signs the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an expedited turnaround time of only three weeks. If CCS pressing is also requested, the expedited turnaround time will be six weeks. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners. The CGC In-House Private Signing fee for Bob Layton is $75 per item and includes: Bob Layton’s signature Expedited turnaround time of three weeks for CGC grading Expedited turnaround time of six weeks for CGC grading and CCS pressing (an additional $20 fee applies for CCS pressing) Encapsulation with CGC’s iconic yellow Signature Series label CGC must receive all submissions for this event at its Florida headquarters by Friday, November 20, 2020.
