In today's episode, BL and Henn talk about the CGC Signature Series, the best way to preserve your signed comics and magazines.
Today's question is: List everyone who has ever been Batgirl in the comic series (all 70+ years of it)! Hint: Barbara Gordon isn't the only one to wear that cowl.
If you're not familiar with CGC, let me give you a quick background! CGC is a third party grading service that will grade your comics for a fee. The grades can range anywhere between poor-mint condition. In the case of the signature series line, they will grade and encase a book after it's been signed. However, you need a CGC witness to watch these books get signed, that way they can verify that the signature is real.Signature Series books are sometimes worth more than an unsigned book, but that's a different topic for a different day.
