Help – Comic Book Guide App Help
What’s New In November, 2015?
We are in the process of finalizing the comic book grading app for distribution on both Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
Does the app grade comics other than Modern Era?
Currently, it has been programmed for Modern Era comic book grading only. Because of differences in older eras, this is future functionality and is in development.
Will your company be attending conventions in 2016?
Yes! We will have a Panel at the Indiana Comic Con on April 29, 2016, with a demo of thecomic book grading app, discussing what it took to develop, and a few giveaways (you don’t want to miss this!)
Acquisition of TheAutographChaser site
On November 26, MyComicGrader acquired the site www.theautographchaser. This site will power the MyComicGrader conventions, comic book creators and authorized witnesses information. If you’re not interested in comic book grading, but would like an easy way to find celebrities, artists, writers, conventions and authorized witnesses, then this is for you.
Will MyComicGrader be attending any conventions in 2016?
Yes! We will have a panel at the Indiana Comic Con on April 29, in beautiful Indianapolis, Indiana. We will demo the comic book grading app a day before the worldwide release, answer questions and have a giveaway or two.
I can’t understand some of the capabilities. Will there be YouTube videos available?
There will be starting in December of 2015., addressing topics such as how to grade, how to locate comic book creators and authorized witnesses attending specific conventions. The same videos will be available on the site as well.
How often do you plan on updating the list of conventions, Authorized Witnesses and Creators?
Every quarter, the lists will be verified for the next quarter of the year. Occasionally, some of the conventions (such as upcoming Comic Cons) are scheduled for years, so additional listings may be available much earlier than others.
Why doesn’t the app do XYZ?
This is the 1st version of the comic book grading app. The more people who purchase a subscription, the more capabilities will be unveiled over the next year and beyond. There are plans for the next 5 version upgrades, but the details are hush-hush.
How does grading work?
It is based on the “Overstreet Guide to Grading Comics 2015”, published in 2014.
Hey, the app graded a comic as a 9.8, but when I sent to CBCS, it came back as a 8.5. Why?
There are many reasons: The more comic book grading options selected, the more accurate the grade will be. If you send the books to multiple 3rd party graders, there is a chance that the grades will fluctuate. This comic book app is trying to make the process more objective.
What is an AW?
AW stands for Authorized Witness. An AW is someone authorized by CGC or CBCS to confirm the signature added to a comic book is legitimate and authentic.
What’s the difference between Basic and Pro subscriptions?
Towards the bottom of the home page, a chart is displayed that highlights the similarities and differences between the two versions of the comic book grading app.
When I search in eBay, I am seeing only 10 comics displayed. I know there are many more on eBay, so why am I only seeing 10?
The results are of recently sold comics based on the information you entered. The app is only displaying a max of ten graded comics at a time, but if you scroll, then additional graded comics will be displayed until all are displayed
There is a chart at the bottom of the eBay listings. If I scroll to see more, the values update. Is it supposed to do that?
Absolutely! When you search for values, the chart will update to reflect the graded comics displayed.
What’s the difference between Raw, Graded and Signature Series books?
Raw refers to comics that have not been signed and have not been graded. Graded are comics that have been sent to a 3rd party (like CBCS or CGC). Signature Series is the same as Graded, except there are authentic signatures from one or more creators.
What’s a Creator?
Comic book creators are anyone that either drew, wrote, created or was involved in a specific character or comic book.
