Someone is suing PGX. Is the beginning of the end for PGX?

And that is a huge issue. .. If PGX disclosed that they always grade higher for certain customers or whatever that would be one thing. The issue is that they hold themselves out to be an objective and independent third party. Their entire businesss is predicated on being independent and objective. If it turns out that they are indeed not, and instead allow undisclosed things like profit motive, relationships, or market share to drive even a small part of their analysis then they are potentially liable for fraud. Again, the issue isn't with the ratings themselves (a comic grade like a credit rating is a mere opinion), rather the issue is in misrepresenting objectivity and independence in makings ones findings. Clearly people really on this gradings, thus the conduct is highly material to the aggregate market.

I find it fascinating because CGC, PGX and CSCB are kind of the Standard and Poors, Moody's and Fitch of the comics industry. Significant legal action has been taken against ratings agencies in the financial sector. It's interesting to see similar issues arise in the collectibles market.

Ryan Reynolds tweeted: "Smells like something died up in here"
We've seen a lot of set photos of Ryan Reynolds suited up as the Merc with the Mouth, so how can 20th Century Fox possibly top all those and that first awesome official image? By releasing one of Deadpool sitting on the toilet reading a comic book of course! Check it out...

Didn't know the best spot to post this, but I got my Descender #1 Eh! Color variant from +Jimmy Linguini  from the contest that +Trey Kenyon had posted in the forums. It was packaged really well, and is easily grade-able. Thank you both!!

So a little while ago I posted an article about Wonder Woman's new look coming out in WW #41 in June I believe. Well it looks like J Scott Campbell got himself in a bit of controversy, because he hates it and said it is unfeminine, and then made a comparison to the Taliban. I love reading people's reactions and comments to these things. http://www.bleedingcool.com/2015/03/15/j-scott-campbell-and-wonder-womans-new-shoulder-pads/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

That being said, you can write whatever you want on the comments on bleedingcool, but if you comment on this post, please keep it civil.

I bought one of the B&W EH variants, do you guys recommend I have it graded? Thanks

So I went down and got two hybrid spider-gwen conquest comics signed and then I bought two sketch covers and had two sketches done. I decided to get them all graded by CGC as well. Adam Hughes and his wife are extremely nice. I got to the shop early because I heard rumors of waiting for hours outside so I thought I should get there early and be in the part of the line that waits in the store. Well I got there way to early and the store was still closed but the light was on. I walked in and I asked if I could just chill in the store because it was cold in the car. He was kind enough to let me in and I got to see some of the other variants he did some trading with to get there variant covers and I got to look through some back issues. Picked up Batgirl 1-9 AH covers for $25 bucks too!

Needless to say I was first in line, so while Adam got ready his wife was at the table setting some prints up to sell. She was super friendly and we talked about snow in Atlanta and about the animal shelter which all the money he charges for the sketches are going to and it seems like a great animal charity so I was happy to pay $40 for two sketches. Now I just have to wait for the four of them to come back from CGC! Can't wait!

Ya. While I was there he was constantly on the phone, all with the same question, or some really random questions. One guy kept him on the phone for over 20 minutes while he was trying to get ready. I over heard that after the first signing Adam didn't stay to sign any extras.  I know Adam was raised in NJ so I am sure he wanted to take time and visit any family/friends while up in NJ. I am not sure if he did after the second signing on Sat. I left after I got my stuff signed, sketched and set up for cgc ss grading. I purposely didn't mention to call to see if he had extras for signing mainly because he was swamped with calls already and I am just not sure he got any extra's signed. Even if he did, the list of names who asked for a signed book would have already been a mile long.

Everything I have read this week related to this says that J.A.R.V.I.S. is the Vision!

Barb Wire from Adam Hughes. July 2015. 
Big news is coming out of Emerald City Comicon from Dark Horse Comics. The veteran publisher is continuing to expand its Project Black Sky line, which has reinvigorated and revived classic '90s titles like Ghost, X, Captain Midnight, and more. The latest additions to their murderer's row of radical revivals will definitely scratch that 1990s nostalgia itch. First, coming in July 2015 is Barb Wire, a reboot of the biggest, baddest bounty hunter in...

This could be nothing, or it might be something. Could spider-woman show up on the big screen? 
Did David Tennant really just confirm that one of Marvel's most iconic heroes is on their way to the MCU? It sure seems like it.

I'm pretty sure she's just the only one there with a pose that is able to be obviously imitated without him looking like he's doing nothing or like he's crazy if you look at everyone else's stance. That's just my opinion though.

Wonder Woman is getting a new costume. She has pants on!  Curious to see what people think of it. I'm not a huge fan. Another interesting thing is THE JOKER Variant cover by BRIAN BOLLAND. Not sure what that looks like or what the details are yet. I have to teach a class and then I will probably look for more information.
New Wonder Woman costume premieres in cover to June's Wonder Woman #41 by artist David Finch.
