  1. This^^^^^. Hope you have a speedy recovery.
  2. It depends on the tier of your submission. You can check their stated TATs on the website under FAQs, but this thread is actually a better indicator of what's currently happening. For instance, if you submitted some moderns and opted for fast track, check a few posts above for boardies who have posted their results in that same tier. Once it says "Scheduled for grading," it's usually a good indication that they'll be graded within the next couple business days, and then they have to go on to quality control for a secondary review before being finalized.
  3. I find it more likely Bran warged into the white horse; makes it less of a deus ex machina that way.
  4. This is the route to go. Just be aware there's a minimum number of books to submit at a single time if you opt to use pre-screen services. Here's a link from CGC's website: https://www.cgccomics.com/services/prescreen/ Good luck!
  5. As soon as you see "Finalized / Imaged / Shipped" in your submission status. You will be able to click the link on your invoice number on the left to see the actual grades; the link for the aforementioned phrase takes you to package tracking.
  6. X-ray specs? You were probably seven years past the Sea Monkeys stage by that time.
  7. I enjoy so many different artists' covers, but these hold a special place in my collection for a variety of reasons. Finally got to meet JTC at Star Wars Celebration (previous SWCs he was always away from the booth when I stopped by). I'm a bigger fan now than before.
  8. Lots of places sell an RJ-45 (a little bit larger in size than "phone ethernet" - phone connector is actually an RJ- 11) to USB adapter. Here's a link to one on Amazon that is USB 3.0 and 10/100/1000 ethernet: https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-1000-Gigabit-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B00M77HMU0/ref=asc_df_B00M77HMU0/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167140037427&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6701102665264457106&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9017953&hvtargid=pla-195027879195&psc=1 Hope this helps.
  9. Just goes to show us even if a celebrity is seemingly ubiquitous at conventions not to take their appearances for granted. I'll treasure my various interactions with him.
  10. The Fisher definitely looks legit. That's my name! I wish I'd seen this.
  11. Is that an eBay item number? I tried to look it up and didn't find anything.
  12. I understand both your points. I've got some celebrity signed books from various film and television franchises, but creators are usually my primary focus. That said, I've got a decent collection started of actor-signed action figure variants for the Star Wars comics that's become my primary focus. Those covers combine my love for my original figures (without the hassles of storing said figures), meeting (most) of the actors in person that had such a huge impact on my youth, sometimes getting to hear behind-the-scenes stuff I've never read or heard before, or even just getting health updates on actors who had to cancel because so many of these guys live in proximity to each other in the UK and remain friends either because of interactions during filming or forming those relationships years later on the convention circuit. There's a "thrill of the hunt" element to obtaining some of the lesser known or uncredited actors who filled the roles of minor characters or creatures or puppeteered various characters before the days of CGI. Some of the original trilogy actors have sadly passed or have retired from the convention scene for health reasons, so sometimes it's a race against the clock. Obviously, I can't go to every con, so facilitators have been a big help; many times, I've had the pleasure of meeting the actors on previous occasions where I only got an 8X10 signed because I didn't know about Signature Series until long after I started attending cons, so at least I'm not missing out on that part of the experience with having the signatures facilitated.
  13. Are there any board members attending that could act as a CGC facilitator? I'd only be looking at a single guest, but getting multiple copies signed. I appreciate any offers.
