      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.

Strange Tales Collecting Thread !

In an attempt to lure those mysterious Strange Tales collectors, I decided to start this thread! If some of them post scans of some of their high grade ST, this should be a blast!

 

I'll start with some of my favorites from my modest collection...

 

ST 103 CGC 8.0 White Mass. Copy

ST-103-Massachusset-2.jpg

 

ST 104 CGC 8.5 OW

I really like that one...the last good cover before the end of the Human Torch run.

(except maybe ST 134 for which I have a bizarre attraction - I can't decide if it's ugly or beautiful - a true work of art !)

Hey Frederic, great idea for a thread!

 

Are some of these books my former CGC beauties that you deslabbed, or did you pick up some nice raw copies? 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

 

Either way, a really cool bunch of books. 893applaud-thumb.gif

ST 103, 106, 116 & 120 were bought raw and then slabbed (except for 106, I did not re-scan them once slabbed) In fact, ST 106 was my first purchase on eBay and I got it at a great price grin.gif

 

As for your former beauties, I still have ST 117 & 118. thumbsup2.gif

Like the Avengers I started the other thread with, this one was tough to part with. I didn't even have a chance to scan it properly.

 

Should have kept it. A truly gorgeous book in-hand, this pic does it no justice.
