  1. Curious were these 12 crossovers pre-screened by CGC? If they were do you remember if they warned you about the 2 that were downgraded? Thanks alot for posting!
  2. Have you already posted all your cbcs crossovers?
  3. So far by my count at least it's been 29 cbcs crossovers posted by members with 23 of them coming back same grade or higher. Page quality pretty consistent. The ones getting knocked down seem to be the mid to lower grades.
  4. Is the one you expect to go down a cbcs graded?

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Interesting. I suppose their scans can be helpful in determining possible upgrade candidates due to the high resolution close up ability. But damn that was a helluva 9.8 there you linked! I just avoid Heritage due to the sales tax they charge in Florida since they have an office here

    Thanks for the link. That one is actually better looking than the one currently being auctioned. Edit: At least from what I can see in the scan.

    Haven't there been others with similar eye appeal sold recently? What did they go for?

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Yes. The only pedigree that seems to attract a premium for Hulk books at least is Suscha news. Someone wondered if the high bidding was due to the pedigree or the CVA/eye appeal. I'd doubt the MH2 attracts anything. We'll see where it ends up. Highest on GPA was 39k in October does anyone know if there been any higher sales on C-link since they don't report to GPA? I know they've had 9.8s auctioned recently but don't recall their final bids?

    This week in your collection?

    Yeah I hear that! If I wasn't a Marvel junkie I'd be on the street shaking an empty coffee cup with some change in it

    Incredible Hulk #181 - is it *that* red-hot?

    Yeah that & the marvel banner seems a bit misaligned. It's a tad lower on the right side. There's also some translucency on the white hulk logo & the back cover but it's likely from the old holder. I'd doubt the wear on that corner could be dealt with in pressing. Not a 9.9 candidate. Likely getting a premium for the CVA

    It's the CVA. They've gotten higher bids on comiclink. Some cases way way higher. Not sure mile high pedigree would command such a premium. Suscha news maybe but I don't think any other pedigree would

    Ross Andru's Amazing Spider-Man Club

    Just wanted to share this panel from ASM 146 as I was reading it again online. Look at the cityscape in the background there... it's crazy glorious!!! I think he may not be the best Spidey artist ever (Romita) but he had the most raw talent! If that makes any sense

    ASM 121 - Who should have been the one to die?

    Well the original plan as I've read was that Conway intended the death to be more permanent but there was too much of an outcry from readers at the time that he & Thomas decided to bring her back starting in ASM 142 in '75. ASM 121 was really where the silver age ended officially for ASM at least. It was a transitional issue to the racier bronze age really! The creative team decided some real life drama was necessary for the character/series. They felt that times were changing & the series had been too cookie cutter too wholesome for readers by '73. Here's a bit of an explainer about what the thinking was at the time for Conway & Thomas Hope that helps

    ASM 121 - Who should have been the one to die?

    Yeah they sprinkled the Gwen clone thing from issue to issue. at the beginning starting with ASM 142 in my first panel here. That's where Peter first spots her clone (not knowing she's a clone). Next one is from issue 144 where it's obviously clearly her & he realizes it, (still unaware it's a clone), thinks he's going . Last one is from 149 in Warren's lab where they first reveal she's a clone.
