  1. Just wondering why CGC only has custom Marvel labels? It's nice having new options this year but are we ever going to see any DC / Image / Valiant / Dark Horse options? Also it would be nice to see a free custom label created and given (as a perk) to members that do the in-house CGC signings since these events don't require membership (of course you could charge the normal $5 to non-members). A custom Todd Mcfarlane, Jim Lee, Rob Liefield, J. Scott Campbell, Sam Kieth, Mark Silvestri, Joe Quesada, Frank Miller, Artgerm, Mike Mignola, label for a signing would be a nice exclusive bonus for

  3. Yeah Comic Tropes is one of the few I was subbed to before. I appreciate his eclectic taste and research/knowledge on the subjects. Given we don't have a comics magazine like Wizard anymore it's harder and harder to find places engaging with the actual culture and history of comics and comic artists. Cartoonist Kayfabe has some nice interviews as well. There's far too much depressingly unimaginative 'what's the hottest selling thing selling on ebay this week' passing as comic culture for me typically when I find people doing a comic related channel. To a certain extent that's fine, (there shou
  4. I'm looking for suggestions on some of the best Youtube channels and other comic forums people visit (CGC seems to be the best UI/graphic design forum layout I've found). I've been getting a bit more into the scene (again) recently but haven't found that much that appeals to me. Without calling out anyone by name - Youtube channels with overly opinionated angry blowhards or people miming the cadence of a radio morning deejay are not my cup of tea.
  5. Some before and after shots of one of mine that I'm getting rid of. Enjoy. Got both covers signed by Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti (back in the day).
  6. Personally I don't trust or buy from sellers on ebay that don't use Geminis (or something very similar/ better (i.e. a cardboard box)). Assuming you're just selling 1 to 4 or 5 raw comics at a time, they're great. I don't remember if it's 50 or 100 mailers you have to buy before the price drops to .50 cents each. (I actually had to look it up at some point because a seller wanted to sandwich a $20 or $30 dollar raw comic between two pieces of cardboard and mail it in a soft padded envelope then complained it would be too expensive for them to buy gemini mailers). I would recommend you do
  7. I'm selling some CGC'd books from my collection - many signed. Below is the complete list. https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&_ssn=noodles1771&_sop=1 All books sold so far have shipped out within 24hrs of sale and are carefully and attentively packed. All CGC Cases are Mint and literally have not been removed from the return box from CGC aside from the pictures taken for the listings below. Feel free to e-mail any questions. Thanks for looking!

  8. Looks like I might be getting a bag signed instead of a comic then lol.
  9. If you send something to a Signature Series signing you can't just send the comic i a regular board and bag?
  10. I couldn't find a thread like this (outside of commissioned work) so I thought I'd start one. Share your favorite convention sketches you've gotten from artists over the years. There may not be conventions we can go to but why not make an artist's alley! (Personally I like the mess and impressionism of a sketch to a polished work many times). Below are a few of mine:
  11. I hate being a downer and I'm not a particular fan of Alan Moore (though I respect his work) but anytime someone mentions Stan Lee I can't help but think of Moore's response on the subject:
