CGC "sister sites"

Postby Stu_Pidman » Fri Nov 07, 2014 10:34 am

I saw this on CGC's Facebook page re: an Action # 1:

"This copy will be for sale in the 1st Event Auction of 2015 on our sister site @comicconnect!"

Is this "sister sites" stuff something new I've missed? Does CGC have any other "sister sites"? Does this mean Metro is "anti-CBCS"? Does, or should, CBCS align themselves with other sites before CGC does? I can't imagine any auction sites would exclude selling one or the other, but maybe if they had an "excluvise" with one company?

Or is this all just marketing bullshit I fell for?

Why are some comic collectors so proud to have fake OCD? Is it cool to pretend to be mentally ill?

No you didn't fall for any marketing bullshit, and the announcement could be rather misleading at first.

What it is, Metropolis owns the book AND CommicConnect. It's Metro who is calling CC their sister site. CGC is simply hosting the announcement on their Facebook page.

:facepalm2: Thank you. I can see now that it's just CGC re-posting the Metro press release.
