Comic Stores Close Across Florida – CGC's Vaults Built To Withstand Hurricane Conditions
CGC, the leading comic book grading service (and sponsor of Bleeding Cool) is based in Sarasota, Florida, right in the middle of Hurricane Irma right now. As well as concern for life and limb, they has been assuring customers about their plans for Hurricane Irma, as well as keeping employees safe.

Good luck, everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
