Super Duper

I hope everyone enjoyed the Superbowl. Nice OT tension! I like these cultural things that half the country watches, makes for good chit chat and jibber jabber the next day at the office. The actual game is always the third…

TGIF

In last week’s post I wrote about CGC having way less comic book submissions and questioned how they were handling it financially. This week I’d like to turn the same question towards the comic book auction houses. The big players…

Check Up

It was over a year ago: I remember bugging CGC to extend the amount of time they leave their invoice numbers available to be referenced by submission accounts like mine. I think in the old days those invoices were available…
