    current turn around rates at CGC

    side note, how do we get this thread stickied? you'd think 500+ pages and 800k+ views would warrant it. @dena
  3. Can we add your friend to the eBay blocked user list thread? :P And to answer OP's question, I keep seeing 10's but CGC never see's it that way.
  4. You should post this in the Blocked eBay user thread.

    Batman who Laughs

    Regarding the topic at hand, I think the 1st appearance of the BWL will stick around and hold value for a while. I actually see a lot of similarities between the BWL and Carnage. Both parallel existing villains (Joker/Venom). Both characters have a "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" type feel. Spidey teams up with Venom to take down Carnage. Batman needs Joker to take down the BWL. Both characters became immediate hits soon following their premiere. I really can't fathom the price of the book going higher unless a movie announcement was made. I do have to caution that depending on where the character/story goes, it could wind up being like Doomsday (who I felt made a big splash and then just sort of fizzled), though I don't think the book would ever drop to that level because the potential for character depth seems so much greater. As for the Grim Knight, I don't have much faith in that book sustaining itself long term. It's the spin-off of a character who was spun-off from another character. At some point, it no longer becomes original and instead becomes kinda gimmicky. The closest analogy I can come up with is Cosmic Ghost Rider. The value of the book really comes from whether or not DC chooses to market and monetize the character the way Marvel has. I kinda don't see it happening, but I've also only read the first two issues of the BWL mini-series so I don't know where the story goes for the Grim Knight.

    Batman who Laughs

    Teen Titans #12 and Dark Nights: Metal #2 were both released on the same day. Metal #2 occurs before Teen Titans #12 from a story perspective, which in my book means that should be the real 1st appearance.

    Batman who Laughs

    It still bugs me that someone, somewhere decided New Titans #12 is the first appearance. Like it isn't. It just isn't. (ugh, sorry for the rant).
  8. 26/100 I'd much rather see a list of the 100 books of all time instead of just the 100 hottest books of the last 12 months because that's what that list feels like.

    If Stan Lee worked at DC

    But Stan did work at DC. His Batman was Wayne Williams. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_Imagine...

    To Slab or not to Slab?

    The shocked looks on the original 5 in the background kinda says it all.

    The ARTGERM Thread

    I must have missed that. I only saw the set of 3 (trade cover/retro/virgin) for $120. Didn't see a set with only 2 covers.

    The ARTGERM Thread

    I mean, I like that cover. But i'm not willing to spend $120 to get it. Between his and JSC's prices, I just feel like these artists are growing more out of touch with the fans. Sure, the books sell out, but it's increasingly feeling like something specific for high end collectors.

    His Catwoman #4 is probably one of his best covers imo. https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/09/05/stanley-artgerm-lau-easter-eggs-catwoman-4-cover/

    PGM Spider-Man #300

    Too many color breaks along the spine. I'll go 8.5.
