One of the longest running debates in comics has always been about Grading. From the early days of no one having the same descriptions for each grade, to now it being controlled by companies that will “slab” your comics in plkastic after giving them a professional examination, it’s been a long, wild ride. Joe and Cory!! are here to break it all down, give the history and help you decide if you need to slab that issue of US One #6 or whatever it is has gone nuts this week.
They also discuss:
- Sick days!
- How Cory!! learned the term “Raw comics”
- The history of comics grading
- What shops do with comics that come from the distributor damaged.
- Comic Restoration going from normal, to forbidden to normal again
- Signatures on comics
All of this, the usual shenanigans and much, much more!
