MTG: COMMANDER MASTERS UP FOR PREORDER

MTG: THE LORD OF THE RINGS: TALES OF MIDDLE-EARTH UP FOR PREORDER

Comedian / Entertainer JOHN POVEROMO joins us for Free Comic Book Day and more.

John Poveromo is a nationally touring comedian, cartoonist, writer, actor, and host of Dystopia Tonight with John Poveromo on TwitchTV, ApplePodcasts, Spotify and YouTube. John’s been seen on FXX’s Gotham Live, FoxTv’s “The Q”, VH1, MTV, written for Newsweek, and has a short film on Amazon Prime that he both co-wrote and starred in titled, “Duppet.”

On Thursday 5/4 John will be performing at the Rochester Opera house.  John will start with a short comedy act and then move into a live taping of his show, Dystopia Tonight. During the taping John will interview Ralph about Free Comic Book Day, Rochester, NH, Jetpack Comics or whatever else John wants Ralph to talk about. With any luck he’ll get to interview some Jetpack staff as well.

Then, you can meet John, on Free Comic Book Day, at the event hall at the Governor’s Inn.

We first met John years ago as the comic headliner for some shows at Curly’s Comedy Club. John’s list of talents included being an illustrator that also had self published a book of his cartoons. Naturally John joined us for Free Comic Book Day, and a relationship was born.

Get your tickets to John’s show now, at the Rochester Opera House website and make sure you stop and see John on Saturday!

From Our New DM, Gavin:
Greetings Rochester, I’m Gavin, a high schooler looking to start a new campaign at Jetpack on April 5th, and all are welcome!

Welcome to the Thwenvyn Cup, a fantasy race that takes place once a century for those brave enough to make it! Inspired by the stories of the Cannonball Run and Rat Race, this tale of heroes takes its own magic-filled twist! Geared towards beginners, students, and first-time players, this family-friendly campaign needs players ready for adventure. For the race only has two rules; you have one (in-game) week to get across the treacherous island of Borlovia, and not to get caught!

I will be accepting 3-6 players ages 10 and up. We will be (as of right now) meeting on Wednesdays from 6  to 8.  If you’re interested, here is my email at gavinboudreau@hotmail.com.  Please be sure to reach out to me so I have an accurate count on how many people will be joining us.

I like to also mention that there is inevitably going to be violence, mild and in traditional D&D style, but combat and violence nonetheless. Also references to the dead, undead, pirates, bugs, swords, vampires, and potentially alcohol. y’know, things that could an eleven-year-old up at night.

Character creation will take place on 4/5.

Game play is FREE.  The only requirement is that you show up weekly or let the DM know when you can’t make it.  If you miss more than 2 sessions in a row we may have to replace your spot.

Please keep in mind that Jetpack requires a guardian be present for anyone under the age of 16.

THE ROCHESTER FREE COMIC BOOK DAY FESTIVAL RETURNS ON SATURDAY 5/6

THE ROCHESTER, NH FREE COMIC BOOK DAY FESTIVAL

The first Saturday of May, every year (unless a pandemic disrupts it)

Save the date. The Rochester Free Comic Book Day Festival is back!

Bigger & Better than ever. – Saturday, May 6th from 10 am – 4pm and later!

A day long, city wide event with free comic books, special guests, costumed characters & more

  • A free comic book scavenger hunt all over town with FREE COMIC BOOKS for kids, teens & adults!
  • Dozens of guests, comic creators, vendors & more.
  • Meet comic book creators & check out the offerings of our vendors at the Event Hall in the ballroom at The Governor’s Inn
  • Food Truck and Beer Garden
  • Costume contest at 4 pm followed by an after party at the Garage at The Governors Inn featuring TWF… THE WORLD FAMOUS TOES.
  • Special Guests include TMNT Classic Creator, Eric Talbot & more to be announced
  • Local Creators list will be added soon
  • Vendors are currently signing up and we will have the list up soon

The Rochester, NH Free Comic Book Day Festival is a Free Comic Book Day event like no other.  While Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is a worldwide event, celebrating the culture of comic books & graphic story telling, the city of Rochester, NH with the help of Jetpack Comics & Games, does it different.  Very different.

Spearheaded by The Rochester Main Street program, the City of Rochester and additional sponsors, we have all worked together to provide a FREE, fun, family friendly day in our city.

The week prior to the event you will find various establishments, in and around town, offering Comic Day specials.  Every year is different and each event is held and sponsored by the respective business hosting the event.

Leading up to FCBD you will be able to find various details about the day on Jetpack Comics website (www.jetpackcomics.com).  The website is updated every few days, starting in January, with details and news, as it comes in.  A few weeks before FCBD you can download the Comic Book scavenger hunt map.

The Comic Book Scavenger Hunt takes place all over Rochester downtown proper.  It is a walking scavenger hunt, directed in a way that highlights the beauty and diversity of our historic downtown, while exposing people to the new and old businesses that Rochester’s downtown has to offer.   Each year there are 2 – 3 dozen stops on the map, where a family or group can get a free comic book.  From local businesses to charity groups, every organization is welcome to be a part of FCBD.  There is a limit of one comic book per group/family at each stop.  We want to insure every group that attends leaves with as many comic books as possible.

At Jetpack Comics you will be able to choose more than one comic with additional chances to pick up more or make a purchase of some at cost. In additional, there may be remote locations (places you can’t walk to) that you can drive to, after the event, to grab even more free comic books.  The scavenger hunt map will have all these details.  At each stop, you have the establishment initial your map so you can enter to win a Comic Book gift basket.  See map for details.  Only completed maps are eligible to win.

As if that weren’t enough, don’t miss the event hall.  Every year there are dozens of tables featuring some of the top talent in the comic book industry, local celebrities, comic book vendors, authors, illustrators and more.  If you’ve never been to a comic book convention, this is a great place to get a feel for what you would find, on a smaller scale.  The event hall is FREE to enter and always features more stops for more free comic books.  Interested in being a vendor?  Space is always limited to reach out early.

Costumes are encouraged.  Hundreds of people come in costume, to embrace the spirit of the day. You may win additional free comic books at some locations, and walk away with prizes if you enter our costume contest and win.  The costume contest starts about 4 pm and runs until it is over.  You can find the costume contest details on our site, as we post them, but there are no wrong or right ways to participate.  Just have fun.

Still looking for more to do on FCBD.  Stick around for the after party.  The warm up band goes on just after the costume contest with the main band starting around 7 pm.  You’ll find many of the creators / guests from the day enjoying the after party and hanging out with fans.  Taking place at The Garage at the Governor’s Inn the after party is a great chance to kick back, eat, drink, read some comic books, listen to great music, and end your day immersed in pop culture with an awesome group of nerds.

Every year FCBD in downtown Rochester, NH is a unique experience.  Save the date and bring the family to the largest (only) Free Comic Book Day Festival in world.

“THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE” WARM UP BAND FOR THE TOES ON FCBD (5/6)

Are you worthy enough to set the tone for the WFT (World Famous Toes)?

If you have been to our FCBD (and be honest, who hasn’t?) then you know  it’s an all day event.

  • Scavenger hunt from 10 – 4 (9 if you’re a VIP).
  • Costume contest @ 4 at the Garage at the Governor’s Inn.
  • After party with Live music (the Toes return to bring an end to the most  festive day of the year).

But there’s a gap between the costume contest and the music. You can  fill that gap.

We’re looking for a warm up band for the World Famous Toes.
You’ll go on after costume contest and play until about 15 – 30 minutes before the main act.

Want to be in the running for this coveted spot of prestige?
(that means you get to fill your wallet with bragging rights).
The warm up band will also be in consideration for a spot at the ROH Porchfest 2023.

Drop an email to Ralph @ jetpackcomics@gmail.com with info (and links if  mpossible) about your band.
Whatever you want to share.

The winner will be determined 2 – 4 weeks before FCBD!  Good luck everyone.

SHOW RALPH WHAT YOU GOT

THE OFFICIAL FREE COMIC BOOK DAY BAND HAS BEEN SELECTED

Saturday 5/6/23 will be the biggest and best day that the city of Rochester, NH will have in 2023.

It’s Free Comic Book Day! You know the drill. Get up early. Head to Jetpack. Collect your VIP bags.

Wander about Rochester in your Squirrel Girl Costume collecting more Free Comic Books.

Grab a bit at one of the FCBD Restaurant stops or visit the FCBD food truck.

Enjoy a tasty libation somewhere and then head to the costume contest at 4 pm at the Garage at the Governor’s Inn.

CEDH Tournament at Jetpack Comics on 1/30!

Hello everyone! Our next monthly Commander Variant night will be on Monday, 1/30.

Details: We will be playing CEDH as our next Commander Variant. Entry is $15 (all of which goes to the prize pool). The event will be played as a “no repeat” Swiss Tournament. This means that rather than seeded play (winners play winners), tables will be created each round so no two players repeat play against each other. A win is 3 points and a draw is 1. The event will end when there is a clear top 3.

The event will begin at 5:30pm. Please give yourself some extra time to manage parking (back lot is still under construction) and for purchasing entry.
Sign-ups: If you plan on attending please respond to this post with a confirmation. We are unable to run certain events if the numbers aren’t high enough. Also, confirmation before hand helps myself and the store better plan for the event.

Rules: Due to the nature of the CEDH format there are no deck building restrictions other than the EDH banlist. Casual Commander House Rules DO NOT apply to this tournament.

PROXIES ARE ALLOWED. I repeat, proxied cards are legal for this tournament.

*We will be hosting Commander Variant games once a month on the last Monday of each month. Keep your eyes peeled and notifications on as we will be posting the events ahead of time and possibly requesting sign ups.

Extra Resources:
Magic: The Gathering Companion App: on Android and Apple, this app will allow you to join and track in store events, giving you a live reading of the event pairs and standing. The app also has a built in life counter!

Casual Commander Night: Jetpack Comics Facebook group: here is the link to the Facebook group where we will be posting any new information about Casual Commander Nights at Jetpack Comics, including the sign ups for our once a month Commander draft. https://www.facebook.com/groups/610016897395928

DISNEY 100 VARIANTS UP FOR PREORDER!

SideKick Comic Box Dividers Now at Jetpack!

The problem?

You know it well. How to protect your comics in a half-full box?

Those precious back-issues are safe  when your short box (or long box) is full. The books remain upright and protected.

But when it’s not full?

What happens when you start a new box, with too much empty space?

Your books slide, slouch, flop,  bend, and crease. And your NM+  comics pick up spine creases and color breaks becoming F/VF or worse.

The Solution

The SideKick accessory hooks onto the sidewall of any typical comic storage box, gripping the cardboard snugly to stay put. This gives your valued comics the RIGHT fit in any box, holding them upright and damage-free.

No more wads of bubble wrap. No more heavy TPBs. Or cardboard, backing boards, or whatever else you’ve been using. And no need to spring for another expensive plastic box!

MID-WEEK MODERN MAGIC EVENT WEDNESDAYS

This is the official ban list for Modern so please follow it when  building your deck.

OFFICIAL BAN LIST FOR MODERN

No, you can’t get one for your mom, or your brother, or great granpa.

MTG COMMANDER LEGENDS EVERY MONDAY

Join us every Monday for Commander at Jetpack

It’s finally happening.  Commander nights at Jetpack are here.

Mondays from 5:30 – 8:30.  If we can grow the community we will stay open even later for bigger & better events.


Commander Variant 11/ 28: Pauper EDH (PDH)

Reminder to everyone that our next Commander Variant event is this coming Monday, 11/28.
This variant is honestly my favorite EDH variant and I would love to see some people come and play who have yet to try it. I do have one spare deck that I would be willing to let someone enter with.
  1. Details: We will be playing Pauper EDH as our next Commander Variant. Entry is $5 (all of which goes to the prize pool). It will most likely be a two round tournament. The winners of the first round will battle it out for 1st place in a final match. The event will begin at 5:30pm. Please give yourself some extra time to manage parking (back lot is still under construction) and for purchasing entry.
Sign-ups: If you plan on attending please respond to this post with a confirmation. We are unable to run certain events if the numbers aren’t high enough. Also, confirmation before hand helps myself and the store better plan for the event.
Rules: We will be playing with the standard Pauper EDH rules, published by PDH Homebase: https://www.pdhhomebase.com/rules
All deck archetypes and strategies are welcome, as long as the deck meets the Pauper EDH rules.
*We will be hosting Commander Variant games once a month on the last Monday of each month. Keep your eyes peeled and notifications on as we will be posting the events ahead of time and possibly requesting sign ups.
Extra Resources:
  1. Magic: The Gathering Companion App: on Android and Apple, this app will allow you to join and track in store events, giving you a live reading of the event pairs and standing. The app also has a built in life counter!
  2. Casual Commander Night: Jetpack Comics Facebook group: here is the link to the Facebook group where we will be posting any new information about Casual Commander Nights at Jetpack Comics, including the sign ups for our once a month Commander draft. https://www.facebook.com/groups/610016897395928
  3. Casual Commander Info and House Rules: here is the link to the Casual Commander info page on the Jetpack Comics website. https://jetpackcomics.com/…/mtg-commander-mondays…/

The Schedule

Nov. 28: Pauper EDH
Cost of Entry: $5
Please Bring: Pauper EDH legal deck
Dec. 5, 12: Casual Commander
Dec. 19: Budget EDH Yankee Swap
Cost of Entry: Pre-made Budget EDH deck ($30-$40)
Please Bring: the budget deck in any deck box, wrapped or in gift bag (sleeves encouraged, but not required)
Dec. 26, Jan. 2: Casual Commander
Jan. 9: Commander Legends Draft – Baldur’s Gate or original
Cost of Entry: $15 or $25
Jan. 16, 23: Casual Commander
Jan. 30: CEDH
Cost of Entry: $15
Please Bring: CEDH legal deck (proxies welcome)

 

Casual Commander! – Casual will always be welcome, even during other Commander events.

  • All skill levels welcome.
  • Focus on fun and social EDH.

House rules:

    1. Fun For All.
  • Be mindful of playing attritious cards: land destruction, turn stealing, solitaire decks, etc.
  • Rule 0: talk to your playgroup about power level and type of gameplay
  • Be welcoming to new players and ready to switch up play groups regularly
      • Playtest/proxy cards welcome
    1. Stay Casual.
      • We ask that players refrain from infinite combo strategies (this means a game plan that actively plays towards/tutors for fast game ending combos)
      • We ask that players refrain from easily exploited fast mana (mana crypt, mox diamond, chrome mox, sol ring, gemstone caverns, etc.). 
        • Yes, sol ring is fast mana! Although to many it is considered a “staple”; it is also responsible for many lopsided games. Our hope is for players to use the empty slot in their decks to add other fun, synergistic cards.
        • Exceptions (due to severe limitations): Jeweled Lotus, Mox Amber, Lotus Petal
          • Jeweled Lotus and Lotus Petal are reasonable/restrictive rituals when not used to actively combo
          • Mox Amber is a fairly restrictive card that limits early game exploitation
    2. Fair Magic
  • We ask that all players remain above board. 
  • If there are any rules questions please speak to the judge.
      1. If there are any concerns on a player’s honesty please speak to the shop.
      2. If a player is ignoring the house rules please speak to the judge.

We’re starting out with a casual Magic Commander meet up each week and moving into other events in the coming months.
Casual play has always been the cornerstone of Commander at Jetpack and will always be encouraged

THE SECRETS OF PARKING AT THE MEGASTORE

Rochester is getting bigger & better but there will be some growing pains

Pretty soon you’re going to see some changes to our parking lot. There  will be less of it.  But that’s just the heralding of a new era for downtown Rochester and the Megastore.  Improving the city means changes  to everything, but you don’t have to worry.  We’ve got the dates on  where all the prime Rochester parking is. The map you see shows you ALL  the places you can find the best Rochester parking.  Be sure to watch  for signs.  Much of it is all day parking but some may be 2 hour.

  • NO  MATTER WHAT, if there is a sign that says you will be towed expect that  the sign is true.
  • DON’T PARK IN A TOW AREA.

Thank you for your support  during this incredible transition. The growth of our downtown just  means that Free Comic Book Day is going to get even bigger and more fun.

The city of Rochester created a page on the city’s website called Discover Downtown. The page includes parking information, a place for construction updates, and links to various resources/things to do downtown. Check it out!

Ralph’s contributes to the podcast “Fortress of Solitude: The Loneliness of Superheroe‪s‬”

They needed some input on comics, so they called up the King. Hear Ralph’s input at about the 5:00 mark!

Superheroes can save us from many things including annihilation, evil, mutant viruses, and mad geniuses. But perhaps the most important one is these characters have something to teach us about loneliness. Almost all origin stories of superheroes begin with intense isolation, abandonment, and solitude. Why do so many superheroes long to not have their superpowers and how did their time alone help them understand their purpose towards themselves and to others, the people they’re supposed to help. From Fortress of Solitudes to Batcaves, take a leap this week into the pages of comic books and lonely superheroes.

Save huge on upcoming Pre-releases with the Jetpack Planeswalker Play & Save Club!

Join us for a few Friday Night Magic Events and you can be a part of that savings

Not a lie.  Not a Joke. It’s our FNM club and we’re inviting those that play with us to save money at our Saturday or Sunday Prerelease Events.

It’s pretty simple.  The next time you join us for FNM draft ask the clerk for your own Jetpack FNM card.  Every time you come to FNM draft give the card to the clerk, when you pay, so he can stamp it for you.  When you redeem your stamps, for prerelease savings, they will cross them out, but you can still collect more. 

Savings will apply to the current price of a Saturday or Sunday prerelease at Jetpack when redeemed.

  • 4 stamps = $5 off 
  • 6 stamps = $10 off

YOU LIKE TO RUN D&D SO WHY NOT EARN STORE CREDIT & DISCOUNTS FOR DOING IT

DMs can earn up to a $10 stipend for running a game and after a few games get a 25% discount on their purchase.

How’s it work? It’s simple.

  • DM a D&D event with 5 or more players.
  • Saturday events earn DMs $5 in store credit.
  • Any other day DMs earn $10 in store credit.
  • After running 3 events in one month get a 25% discount on your purchase.

When you arrive at Jetpack see the clerk and let him know you are
running an event that day.

(It is important that you check in prior to your event).
During the event the clerk will stop in to verify your attendance.
(tables must have at least 5 players to earn credit & discount).

After your event see the clerk to spend your stipend for the day and to
have him mark off your DM card.

On your third event for the month you will not only get your stipend but
you will also get 25% your purchase that day.

DMs from earlier in the month get first right of refusal of running
tables the rest of the month.

Want to apply this to another game? Talk to us about it

Please note that we have events in the game room other than DnD.
If you with to run an event other than Saturday we need to know so we
can block out space for you. It’s usually not a problem but we’d like to have a bit of a heads up.

Events must be scheduled and announced via the Jetpack DnD group.

Events must have at least 5 players & the DM to be valid.


Stipends are only valid the day the event is run, so don’t forget to
spend them.

Discounts are only valid the day the third event is run so don’t forget
to use it.

As with all things Jetpack there are restrictions. Discounted product
will not be discounted more.
Can not be combined with other deals or offers. There’s probably other
restrictions as well.

All players need to bring a deck legal in the Standard Format as well as damage counters and a randomizer (translucent die, official Pokemon coin, etc).

Rounds will be 30 minutes plus 3 turns. We will then cut to top cut based on attendance. Top cut rounds will be 60 minutes plus 3 turns.

There will be no exception on time limits.

The next round starts 5 minutes after the entire completion of a round.

There will be a half hour break at some point in the tournament.  DECKS MUST STAY IN THE ROOM! Ask your friend to watch your deck while you get your lunch  Decks that leave = elimination.

Judging Staff reserve the right to address situations that give the appearance of collusion, in whatever manner the venue sees fit.

Prize payout will be as above for each division, even if combined

HOUSE RULES – These are things that have come up in the past that we have been forced to make rules for.  These are at our discretion and will be enforced with out question.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING

Make sure you have this all when you arrive.  If you register and do not have these things you will be eliminated from the tournament without refund.

Your Pokemon Number (Nintendo / League / Trainer ID / or whatever you want to call it).  If you don’t have it we will issue you a temporary one which you can rectify with Nintendo on your own.  Our computer is not available for anyone to use so please do not ask. If you ask you will be eliminated from the tournament.  You know you are suppose to have this.

Your deck list.  If it is not filled out and turned in by the start of the game you will be eliminated.  If it is not correct you will be eliminated.

Your deck.  If you leave the room you have to turn in your deck to the Judges table by the computer.  We are not taking responsibility for your deck, at all. It will be on the desk where you place it when you return.

Your cell phone.  Your cell phone must be in your pocket during rounds.  You may not have your phone out during game play. If it is you will be eliminated.

THERE WILL BE RANDOM DECK CHECKS BETWEEN AND DURING ROUNDS.

All functionality of the event is controlled by Nintendos reporting system.  We will not deviate.

If your deck leaves the room it will be grounds for disqualification.

IMPORTANT THINGS

– The clock continues if there is a question and during the research of the question.  The clock does not stop for any reason.

– The judging staff reserves the right to call a match if one of the players gives the appearance of stalling to go to time.  This is at the judging staff discretion.

We all know that the spirit of the game is to be fair and have fun.  This isn’t the place for you if you are not living up to the spirit.

Collusion – There have been many questions and complaints of collusion of players, by other players at our past events.

In short, collusion is where a group of friends work together to insure that one of their friends takes the top spot so that all the friends can advance together to higher level events.  (all of the other friends are better players and already have secured their spots and are now trying to get this player, their friend, into a top spot).

The VENUE (not the judging staff) reserves the right to address situations that give the appearance of collusion, in whatever manner the venue sees fit.

If we do not receive the proper prize support from Nintendo we will provide your choice of comparable prize support or we will take your info and advocate to Nintendo on your behalf.  If you are one of the top 4 in any category we need your name, email address and placement in the tournament. We’ll reach out to Nintendo, and cc you. After that it is up to you to work with them to get your due.

THERE ARE NO REFUNDS IF YOU’RE ELIMINATED.  Just humiliation.

We are psyched to be hosting this event and, thanks to Carlton at Pokemon HQ and some sister stores, we’re going to make this event swift, painless and easy to process.  Remember first and foremost, this is suppose to be fun.

Comic Review: The Last God

The Last God #1 (DC Comics) TLG_Cv1_promo_5d150a35e3be99.37759382

The second new Black Label title this week, The Last God is decidedly different from the other Black Label titles on the shelf. For one, it doesn’t feature The Joker or any other DC heroes, and for two, it’s an original dark fantasy series. One would argue that this is the first real test for the Black Label line, where if Last God can succeed as a book without the help of established DC properties, then the title could really flourish. And after reading the first issue from Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Riccardo Federicci, I see no reason to think that the book and the line as a whole won’t be a big success.

The kingdom of Cain Anuun has known peace for decades, thanks in part to the defeat of the Last God by their king, Tyr. Flourishing under the new rule, King Tyr has grown pretty weary, watching over gladiator matches that depict his great defeat of the evil he and his allies fought against. Eyvindr, the crowd favorite of the gladiators, is on his final match to win his freedom. But that chance at a free life is cut short when the fabled Last God arrives once more, creating a host of gruesome creatures to do his bidding.

It’s always hard to start up a brand new fantasy story, but Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s on the right track with Last God. While it does get a little info dumpy, Johnson uses his script to pepper in some revelations about the story of Tyr’s rise to power that already cast a lot of doubt on the validity of his story, which makes for a pretty intriguing narrative. There’s not quite as much character development as I would have liked, but it all makes for a pretty engaging story regardless.

Riccardo Federrici’s art really pulls you into this world, and his dark colors highlight some truly unique and original fantasy creature designs. I was pretty stunned by some of the art in this book, and it really makes for a comic that looks like nothing else on the stands. It’s really a sight to behold, and should this title make an impact, I expect Federrici to be in high demand for future projects.

The Last God has a lot riding on it for the future of original Black Label content, but it’s off to a pretty strong start, and only shows signs of improving from there. As much as I’ve enjoyed a lot of the Black Label line, it’s refreshing to see a title from the imprint that isn’t just another out of continuity Batman or Joker tale. If anything, Last God shows off the potential of the Black Label line, and could be an indication of where the line will go from here.

Now offering CGC grading on all of our exclusives.

$75 first comics & $45 each one after.

Turn around time can be up to 45 days or longer. It all depends on how busy CGC is.

(costs include fast track on comics [not applicable to magazine size] shipping & insurance to & from CGC)

To insure a faster turn around time CGC submissions take first priority when a new Jetpack Exclusive releases.

Jetpack Comics LLC is an authorized CGC submissions vendor.

Do you have books you’d like to submit for CGC grading?

Just follow these simple instructions and we can provide a quote for you.

Email us the following details about your comic books

1 – Exact Title, Issue # & Date of Publication.

  • This can all be found in the indica, inside of the comic book.
  • Do not use the date on the cover of the comic book as this is not the publication date.

2 – Any special attributes about the comic book.

  • Variant, printing other than first print, pedigree, etc.
  • COAs are not a special attribute nor a signatures. Signatures on a comic book will actually bring in a lower grading unless you have made use of a CGC signature witness, in which case we would not be submitting it for you as the witness would.

3 – The value you place on the comics book for insurance purposes. 

  • This is the one that rips everyone up so pay close attention.
  • The amount you value the comic book affects how much it will cost to grade and how much it will cost for shipping each direction.
  • The amount you value the comic book is the amount you would get if it was damaged in transit, in the possession of CGC or in the possession of Jetpack Comics.
  • For legal reasons we can not advise you on this.  You have to determine the value yourself.

4 – Do you want to pay extra for faster service?

  • CGC can take up to 2 months or longer, at times.  There are options to have it done faster.  Of course that comes with a price.
  • With that information we can provide you a quote.
  • Please do not bring books for CGC to Jetpack until you have received and confirmed your quote.  Once this is done we can accept your books for CGC submission.

EMAIL JETPACK

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

Please note that once books are shipped out we have no way to retrieve them until the process is complete.  Plan on a minimum of 2 months.  All CGC inquiries are handled via email.  DON’T BUG THE CLERK CAUSE HE DON’T KNOW.
CGC does not return mylar, bags, boards, COAs, or any other trinket or bauble you send with your submission.

About CGC
Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) revolutionized the comic book marketplace when it was founded in 2000 by providing clear, objective and impartial assessments of authenticity and grade. Today, CGC is the world’s largest and most trusted third-party grading service for comics, magazines, concert posters and related collectibles with more than 5 million collectibles certified since 2000.

Benefits of CGC Grading
Accurate, consistent and impartial grading from CGC has made the hobby safer, more transparent and more vibrant. Collectors and dealers trust that any collectible graded by CGC has been authenticated, checked for restoration and graded according to widely accepted standards by multiple professionals. They also know that it has been encapsulated in a tamper-evident holder designed for long-term preservation. This added confidence and protection has made it easier and safer to buy, sell and collect comic books.

Notes:

In the event that CGC, at its sole discretion, determines that the fair market value of a collectible is higher than the value stated by the submitter, CGC will move the collectible to the appropriate higher tier and the additional charge will be the responsibility of the submitter. For more information on determining fair market value, review the Declared Value Policy.  please make that a link leading to a page with the following.

CGC Declared Value Policy

Submitters to CGC are required to list a declared value for each collectible in their submission. By submitting a collectible and listing a declared value, the submitter agrees that the declared value represents the current fair market value (FMV) of the submitted collectible. The declared value must represent the FMV of a genuine collectible of that same issue and variety in the same approximate condition.

If you do not know the collectible’s current fair market value, you can assign a declared value based on the price you paid for the collectible (if purchased recently), a value you found in a price guide, the price a dealer offered to pay you for the collectible or other reasonable determining method.

CGC does not assign values to collectibles. If CGC determines that a collectible is undervalued and does not qualify for the tier or services selected, it may adjust the tier and charge the appropriate difference in CCS services, grading and/or services fees based on its determination of the collectible’s current Fair Market Value. (Note: CGC will adjust the tier even if the collectible is later determined to be not genuine, altered or otherwise ungradable.) CGC will not, however, change the declared value originally assigned by the submitter.

The declared value is used to insure a collectible while it is at CGC’s facility. In addition, in the extremely rare event that a collectible is lost or damaged while at CGC’s facility, the submitter will be compensated based on the collectible’s current Fair Market Value (as defined below) in the condition in which it was received by CGC; provided that in no event will the compensation exceed the declared value listed by the submitter on the CGC Submission Form. It is therefore very important that the declared value listed by the submitter represent the collectible’s current fair market value.

Fair Market Value: For the purposes of this Policy, the “current Fair Market Value” is the value of the collectible if it were to be sold, as determined by CGC in its sole reasonably exercised discretion. CGC will determine the current Fair Market Value of a collectible based upon what CGC believes, in its sole reasonably exercised opinion, to be reliable current market information. CGC may use actual pricing and sales information available to it, including prices in the actual transaction history of the collectible in question. However, due to the volatile nature of the collectible market and Internet auctions/sales as well as the differences in buying habits of different individuals, such information may not necessarily represent the accurate current Fair Market Value of any particular collectible, which again, will be determined by CGC in its sole reasonably exercised discretion. CGC reserves the right to use the declared value listed by the submitter on the CGC Submission Form as the current Fair Market Value, and in no event will CGC’s determination of current Fair Market Value exceed the declared value listed by the submitter on the CGC Submission Form. CGC’s determination of the current Fair Market Value will be absolute and binding on all parties.

Please note that this policy also applies for submissions to Classic Collectible Services (CCS), an affiliate of CGC, if CCS services are selected on the CGC Submission Form.

Volume Seven, Issue Forty-Six!
“In Need Of A Miracle

One of the best comics on the stands came to a close last week: Mister Miracle. The Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ miniseries focused on the life of Scott Free, the superhero/escape artist known as Mister Miracle who’s originally from the dark world of Apokalips. While you may have thought that this series would focus on Scott’s struggles with his adoptive father Darkseid and the war for home of the New Gods, it actually had more to say about family, grief, and mental health.

Mister Miracle started on a major downer. Scott Free has survived a suicide attempt, and it created a major strain on his relationship with his wife, Big Barda, and put his entire faith in himself in question. He’s always been able to escape any trap, but even death isn’t free from his powers. It’s a weird choice to start a comic series where your lead character is recuperating from trying to kill himself, but in doing so Tom King and Mitch Gerads created a really heartbreaking and human way to connect with a character that has ties to the grandiose and bombastic Fourth World saga that Jack Kirby made famous in the seventies. As the series continued, Scott was confronted with a war that had long been a threat in his home world, and dealing with the fallout of his suicide attempt, which lead to some of the most heartbreaking moments of the series. But when he and Barda have a child, the already engaging series really found its stride, showcasing the power of becoming a father and having to care for someone else.

Tom King and Mitch Gerads are no slouches in the world of comics, but the pair somehow outdid themselves with every issue of Mister Miracle that came out. King’s scripts deserve multiple readings, revealing new layers and motivations for the characters with each reread (and hilarious moments like Darkseid eating carrots from a vegetable tray, or Scott’s penchant for superhero logo shirts). Gerads added a new crazy panel layout with each issue, and used the Watchmen nine-panel layout in ways that haven’t been used so effectively since Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ epic. Hell, the pair even worked in multiple references to the How Did This Get Made podcast, so much so that they’ve been name dropped multiple times on the show.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Mister Miracle is that, despite being a character created and steeped in the heavy (and daunting) lore of Kirby’s Fourth World, King and Gerads made him into arguably the most relatable hero in comics. Despite his abilities and background, at the end of the day, Scott is just a guy trying to care for his family in the best way he can. Against obstacles as insurmountable as Darkseid’s forces and his own mind, Scott Free is just doing his best, like all of us, and who can’t relate to that? It’s this reason why I’m bummed out that King and Gerads have ended their story with issue twelve, but I’m also happy that they did it on their terms. Seek it out.

How FCBD Helps Children in Hospitals

On May 5th Children who are in hospitals across the US that have signed up with Free Comic Book Day For Children in Hospitals will not only receive a free comic book like the ones handed out at the comic book stores on Free Comic Book Day, but will also receive Fly Like An Eagle Comic , written by John Wilcox. Fly Like An Eagle comic was not just a comic book project under Rise Above Social Issues Foundation but a story designed to be a project for the children who are in hospitals. This 12 page story requires the children to be an inker, colorist and cover artist! The children who find themselves in the hospitals will hopefully feel included in Free Comic book day as well as feeling a sense of normalcy for a day – I do hope Free Comic Book Day For Children in Hospitals will make a difference.

On May 5th Nancy Silberkleit co-CEO of Archie Comics will be at a John Hopkins Children’s Hospital in Florida skyping into other hospitals speaking on How Comic Books are created!!
