CGC 9.2 S.S. error encapsulation of Magnus #5 Rai #1 facing forward (back cover faces forward in CGC case)

So, I just got back a CGC 9.2 Signature Signed (Shooter and Layton) Magnus Robot Fighter #5 flipbook that was encapsulated backwards. Rai #1 (the back cover) is facing forward in the case and Magnus #5 is on the backside of the case (upside down). I have to say that I really like it! I am just specu...

Re: 1992 Harbinger #3 Manufactured with Heavy Miscut

I got it off of EBay from Keycomics in 2017. He sold Valiant in his comic shop in the 90s. Here is what he had to say when I asked about it and other pre-unity issues: keycomics: We bought multiple cases of Harbinger 3 when it came out, and this was found in one of the sealed cases, and it was the o...

1992 Harbinger #3 Manufactured with Heavy Miscut

It looks as though the comic shifted during the cutting process. I thought it was interesting that it could not fit vertically into a comic bag and board (it is about a half inch too long to fit upright). So, it has to fit diagonally (as they placed it in the CGC case). When I sent it in for Signatu...

Re: KT making her 1st cover appearance on BS #10 exclusive

Has anyone received their graded KT cover copies of this comic yet? (I have not) CGC marked books my shop sent out in January as "Received" just two weeks ago. They, like PCS are swamped by the current collectibles bubble. It's likely going to take a while. Ok, great. Looking forward to these. Than...

This is weird. It seems odd for Shooter to fib about fakes. But, if it is true, it seems odd that nobody has noticed. :?

I’ve never seen a Shadowman #1 Gold for the original Valiant. Unless you are talking VEI Shadowman.

What is the deal with the Bad Idea pin or Button? What is the character or logo? I have not seen them. But, I did get my pre-order in with Ed. Thanks Ed for doing the set pre-orders!

Re: Some cool valiant related stuff is coming Mar 4th!

That would be crazy.... and CGC can’t tell the difference and spot a counterfeit in all these years of grading? I wouldn’t exactly call that “cool stuff happening!”

Does anyone know the details about the 4001 A.D. #1 Japanese Variant? It seems to be readily available in the market. But, from what I have read, it was only available in the time capsule? Were there more issues available in another way? I am just wondering about the true rarity of this one? https:...

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

Grader’s notes: “Surface wear near spine on back cover breaks color.” What I see is the top staple seems to face a little more toward the back cover than the front (when comparing to the bottom staple). There seems to be a little “crimp” or stress line by the top staple on the back cover that may br...
