  1. Just got 15 of my 18 comics back yesterday. Hopefully the last 3 will arrive within the month.
  2. I have inquired many times since around June/July. Was told repeatedly over the phone by various employees that there was a bigger than normal backlog because of con season and also because of the rush of people sending in books to get SS by Stan Lee. This same statement was pretty much repeated monthly since then up until this suddenly blew up. I would guess most others got the same explanation.
  3. There are plenty of threads on here describing Canadian price variants and a few good websites offering up more info on the topic if you are interested in finding out about them. 👍🏻
  4. Just got this from paradise. .....Hi Sal, it has been confirmed today that your CGC order has been verified and is scheduled to ship from CGC on Thursday March 29th. We should receive them on the following Monday and will have them recorded and be calling people on Tuesday. Thank you for your patience and we will be giving you a call soon. Sounds promising. My next issue would be making sure all the books sent back were the actual books I submitted. There are 6 high grade, high value Canadian price variants in the submissions and a great pence variant. Can’t wait to find out if any of them have mysteriously disappeared.
  5. If the owner of the book calls CGC head office are they able to provide him the date it arrived at their facility? Is that information CGC would have on file?
  6. They go to Paradise Comics and they contact us when they have arrived.
  7. Thank you greatly for your comment. I wasn’t sure that I could get to sleep peacefully tonight without a heavy dose of sarcasm...but alas, my prayers have been answered.
  8. I appreciate your comment and yes I agree, it’s all a little confusing. My invoice has my personal info on it, so you are right that something doesn’t add up. I gave my invoice numbers to CGC when I called and they should have all my info on that invoice, unless like you’ve said, something is off. Either way, hopefully all of our books return safe and sound. I haven’t fully made up my mind about CGC yet, so far I am very unhappy, but time will tell.
  9. Every time a comic is dropped off at the shop an invoice with all my contact info is made up...I get a copy and the other one is attached to the book (from my understanding and witnessing) when it is grouped together with other customers books. If my invoice with my info is not attached to the book then how would the comic shop know which book is mine for when it returns? If they send in 10 different copies of Batman #666 from 10 different customers at the same time how would you know which copy is yours if your info wasn’t attached to it? If it is not done this way then please enlighten me to the exact process.
  10. Contacted them by email and by phone. Both attempts were met with absolutely no attempt to help......each invoice has my personal information, so they had it. Pleading ignorance of a situation is not a viable defence. Like I said, please continue to bash me as you see fit, I am entitled to my personal opinions.
  11. I think I’ve now repeated myself multiple times, I believe that CGC is “partially” at fault in this whole situation, not fully..please learn to read if you are going to post. Paradise comics has answered any questions I had for them, CGC has not. Your opinions are just that, yours. Everyone else on here is free to express theirs, as am I. If you don’t want to listen to my comments then by all means, please skip them. My issue for the final time is how CGC has handled my customer complaints and this entire situation. 👋🏻
  12. Its been 20 days since this thread and posts were started on their own chat boards and not one employee or representative from CGC has said anything regarding the situation. You guys can bash me all you want regarding my belief that CGC is partly responsible for this but the lack of communication in any way from them only furthers my opinions and their validity.
  13. I was told that the comics were sent in to CGC when they were supposed to and I believe that. There are other issues I’m not privy to or aware of I understand that. I came to my own conclusions that this whole mess is not 100% paradises fault. People on here are speculating that payments weren’t made on time or other reasons for the delays, maybe so maybe not, I don’t know. I DO know the following...books with my name,phone number and email on the attached paperwork (not just paradise comics info) have been sitting in their vaults for over 10 months. Unless CGCs inventory system is a complete disaster (I don’t think so) they are fully aware that a paying customers books have been sitting there for that long. Whatever the issues at play are CGC have their reputation to uphold, and not attempting to resolve this issue months ago or at the very least contacting affected customers to let them know the status of their books is YES partly their fault.
  14. I never said CGC was the “bad guy” in all of this. I don’t believe that paradise is 100% to blame for this either meaning that there is some blame to go around. CGC has knowingly had my books (and many other people’s) in their vaults for almost a year. If that didn’t set off alarms and push CGC to correct any issues they were aware of then they are not completely innocent either. My main issue with CGC has been their complete and utterly horrible customer service with me personally. Kristina at paradise has been nothing but helpful to me and many others, and I in no way said she led me to believe anything about CGC. These are my personal feelings and not those of anyone at paradise comics.
