Look down 4 posts and you'll see it.  I know easier to ask then to read.

Pirate, being a noob I’ve tried to read everything on CGC SS I can get my hands on. My first CGC grading experience was at Wizard World Chicago but CGC exhibited there. I’m trying to figure out how the whole process works when CGC is not exhibiting. I have reached out to Kevlar several times with questions but no reply. I also emailed Twin City directly and someone got back to me and is helping me out now. What I have learned so far is just takes a while for someone to get back to you.

But sure, of course I’m going to post and see if someone else can help me out if I don’t get a reply from the first person. What else should I try?

From my thread reading I do see the trend of “season veterans” putting down noobs when it seems it would be so much easier to help them out. It also makes it more intimating for noobs to feel welcomed and want to post and ask questions.

ACE replied to my question on Facebook and said CGC will be there accepting submissions along with witnesses. I don't see the event listed here and was confused because CGC is listed on a flyer as an exhibitor and ACE has posted an update on their site stating CGC will have a table but CGC is not listed in the exhibitor section of the ACE website? I can only assume that since Starlin has a 20 fee listed for CGC signatures and 10 for regular signatures along with assurances by ACE that CGC will be represented at the convention that I can bring my books to the show and have the signatures witnessed.

CGC replied to me on Facebook about 2 weeks ago that they will NOT be exhibiting at ACE and have no witness scheduled. I wish we could get a straight answer on this. But it does look like CGC was added to the ACE exhibitor page:

The comic monster posted in a thread on here that they will be there as CGC facilitators. I checked them out on Facebook and sent them a message. They had a post about a bulk signing so I would try to hit them up on FB. I’ll check back in on here if I find out any more for sure? Good luck and I got your 6!

Use this post.  When it's updated, it shows you which creators will be at which shows, when those shows are, and who's facilitating.  It's not updated 100%, but most of the time it'll give you the information you're looking for.

 

 

I should also add that Kevlar = Twin Cities Comics and his post was on page 1 of "SigSeries Event Central".  He's a great facilitator and he is actually helping me with a signing at ACE.

Can’t sing the praises of THECOMICMONSTER high enough! I’m a bit of a completist and without the help of Justin Hess I believe I wouldn’t have ever been able to accomplish my goals at ace in Chicago. Great facilitator all around! Kudos to Justin and a lot of stress and FOMO of my mind ???
