  1. Truer words. Look at the /r/comics subreddit and all of the original art that people are posting there. Much of that stuff is from kids who aren't even out of college yet, and it blows away anything Liefeld has ever done. None of those kids will ever be published, even though they deserve to be. I had dreams of being a comic book artist in my youth and the first thing I learned from all of my courses was that you learn general form and perspective first. That is why those "how-to" guides always start out with a few connected circles and end with something amazing. I am convinced Liefeld starts out just drawing hundreds lines everywhere and then goes back and tries to connect everything. I was the biggest Liefeld fanboy growing up and still have about 100 of his books in my collection, and somehow never realized how terrible they all are until I was an adult. I'm sorry, I have to log out now and stay off CGC for at least a week or I will spend hours just railing on the guy in this thread. Maybe when I log back in Liefeld will have delivered on his six year old Brigade Kickstarter
  2. If I were to start drawing comics for Marvel, you could also describe my art as "unique." It would be the most "unique" of any Marvel artist in history. I disagree he had a huge impact on the art form. An impact on the industry - yes. On the art form? No, unless he showed artists what not to do. He absolutely should be, for the simple fact that he has had THIRTY YEARS to grow and develop as an artist and he still posts garbage. He gets work now because his name carries weight, not his art. Look at the awful art in Major X and the Action Comics variants from this year. He STILL has not learned perspective. How is it possible to get worse as an artist in thirty years? And he deserves to be crapped on more than ever for the way he acts on Twitter and his shady business tactics. Remember the Spider-Man/DeadPool 47 fit he threw? That was all because he wasn't hoarding 500 copies of that issue in his closet. All he cares about is money.
  3. Overstreet is wrong, because value is subjective and I can guarantee you that you will get significantly more on eBay with the tatooz than without.
  4. Results are in. Congrats on everyone who correctly predicted it. At least it didn't drop in grade. Was going to add McFarlane's sig but unfortunately an emergency roof repair is going to force me to part with it.

  6. Well that's disappointing. I have five books with them from 6/24 that are still marked as "Received." I also have a modern submitted through Desert Winds to CCS under Fast Track Press in May that I don't have back.
  7. Wasn't sure if anyone might find this interview interesting. I'm sure everyone here already knows the answers, but they discuss: Are CGC cases waterproof? Does CGC give higher grades when submitting on-site? How many books they grade a day and how long they take to grade Use of microchamber paper I started watching ComicTom a few months ago and he posts really consistently and I think has some good content. If you do like this video, it's pretty similar to his others.

  9. They did end up being scratches, but buffed right out with a little Scratch-X.
  10. AMS 361 sold. Will check on the ASM 300 case when I get to the office on Monday. For the ASM 300, I think the large one is a scratch on the case. I have updated the listing to reflect that I will also offer refunds if anyone isn't satisfied with the condition of the slab, or I will reduce the price to cover a reslab.

  12. Glad to know this as I received 14 slabs from CGC last week and three of them have scuffs on them I need to polish out.
  13. 14 items submitted by regular Modern at Heroes Con on 6/24. Shipped out on 7/29/19. 5 other items submitted for Modern + Press at Heroes Con on 6/24 and currently listed as "Received."

    I might be confused by something here, but if all stores didn't get shorted, wouldn't you fill the subs form the shorted stores from the ones that weren't shorted before placing on the shelves? If store A had 10 subs and received 7 copies, wouldn't they call store B and get 3 of their copies that Store B was going to put on a shelf to fill Store A's subs? Why would you have any books at all on a shelf before 100% of subs were filled first? Again, maybe I misread something about the way this works.
