      Try the new CGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      CGC has launched a new and improved CGC Journals! Available on CGCcomics.com, the new CGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new CGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the CGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old CGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the CGC website. Old CGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new CGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new CGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new CGC Journals or go to the new CGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!  

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

We're happy to announce that on April 15th, we will be running our first Meadowlands Comic Book Expo!

 

The location is:

The Holiday Inn Secaucus Meadowlands

300 Plaza Dr

Secaucus, NJ 07094

 

The hotel is minutes from both Route 17, the NJ Turnpike and the Lincoln Tunnel.

 

The show takes place in the second floor conference room area. We will have 2 rooms overflowing with comics from bargain books to CGC graded keys. Our dealer pool received the floor plan less than 2 hours ago and more than half the tables are already booked!

 

As anyone who has been to our events knows... we are are proud to host "comic book shows" that actually have comic book dealers!

 

Admission is only $2

 

Hours are 10-4

 

Free parking is a minute's walk away.

 

If you have friends or family coming along who are not into comics, there are tons of restaurants, shopping and a theater within walking distance.

 

I'll keep you posted as more info becomes available.

 

Seeya there!

It's never too early to plan... if you need detailed driving directions, call the hotel's front desk at 201-348-2000.

 

Again, let us remind you... this is actually a comicon... not an autograph show masquerading as one!

 

Dealers confirmed so far include:

Gary Platt

Jim O'Brien

Silver Fox Comics

Mike Decarl

Bob Stevenson

Robbie C Comics

Dave's American Comics

Pug Productions

Mike Hanerfield

Johnny K

MFP Toys

Riverside Comics

 

We expect the show to be a total sellout once additional dealers at Clifton book this Sunday!

The auction lots vary from show to show. A handful of early Marvel SA books (1963-65) sold for an average of 25% of guide. A stack of low grade silver worth about $300-$350 sold for $60. A few box lots for well below market. A nice box of 100 Mad magazines that averaged VG and numbered mostly in the 100's sold for $50. Plus much more...

 

Past lots have included a handwritten letter with envelope from Steve Ditko for $150, a Captain Gallant giveaway variant not in the guide for $25, a page of Ayers art for $15 (yes $15!)... etc...

 

I never know what dealers will be giving me until the day of the show!
