I'd like to request a label update for Marvel Super Action #1 (dated 1/1976) , based on the information below....thanks!

 

 

 

CGC labeling incorrectly indicates that Marvel Premiere # 38 10/1977) is the 1st appearance of Weird World:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Marvel-Premiere-1972-38-CGC-9-6-1342607025-/361379624419?hash=item5423e775e3

 

 

The first appearance of Weird World should be listed by CGC as Marvel Super Action #1 (1/1976) , as this contains the first Weird World appearance:

 

Reference:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weirdworld#Publication_history

 

 

CGC's current labeling of Marvel Super Action #1 is linked below, unless it has been updated since this particular magazine was encapsulated, which I do not think is the case:

After doing some research and discussion between the comic book and magazine departments, we decided that this does warrant an update on our labels.

 

The label for Marvel Super Action #1 will be changed to indicate that it is the first Weirdworld, and Marvel Premiere #38 will be changed to specify that it is the first appearance of Weirdworld in comics.

Currently Frankenstein comics does not have any description. A board member recommended, "Classic Cover. Killer Briefer horror begins."

 

Overstreet notes in the most recent guide #45, "New origin, horror series begins."

 

Maybe you can find a way to incorporate both into a new label? I think the importance of the change from a humor to horror format is noteworthy in general, but especially to this title. Please let me know if you agree. Thanks in advance!!

Can we update ASM #800 to note "Death of Flash Thompson"?

Alternatively, CBCS has "Death of Agent Anti-Venom"

Thanks!

Thanks, Bree, but I was also referring the other thread, (as the last post from a CGC Moderator on that page was from February 2015) as some of the information I don't think has been updated or there's been no commentary as to why it hasn't:

Here's a new one that always boggled my mind.  1st Red Hulk.  Currently the v2008 #1 Hulk is credited with his first appearance, but if you read the actual book he is nowhere in there.  He appears on the cover but not in the story.
 https://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Hulk-2008/Issue-1?id=2210
HE DOES appear in the next issue, #2, but for years people have had this wrong probably to justify the higher price of issue #1?  

1st Red She-Hulk is a little less confusing, but I don't know how you have it listed on either label yet, if at all.
Book #15 from the same series is the 1st cameo appearance (last page) and Book #16 is the 1st full appearance.

How do you guys expect CGC to get any work done, like actually grading comics, with your endless stream of requests ? It's been over 3 years since they've addressed this thread. I wouldn't expect much. Sorry, just calling it as I see it.

Most of the suggestions I listed were from the thread below which dated from 2013: that's almost 6 years worth of requests that weren't dealt with.

Yes, I know. It's not like anybody is doing something wrong by asking for these updates. I'm just pointing out I don't think it is a priority. As you said, it's been almost 6 years.
