Raygun Comics is a CGC UK Authorized Dealer!

Not only can we save you the hassle and expense of CGC membership, we can help you assess your comics prior to submission, and reduce your fees due to bulk submission.

We can also submit your comics for pressing through CGC's pressing department CCS to get those annoying creases out without risking an amateur fix, and we can send any cracked or damaged graded books you have off to be ReHoldered.

Please Note:
​CGC cannot authenticate signed comics, even with a 'certificate of authenticity'. If you wish to obtain a Signature Series (gold label) CGC comic, you will need a CGC representative to witness the signing of a comic, usually at a comic convention or show.

To submit to CGC through us, please contact us to arrange an appointment or for mail in details.

CGC Glossary & Details

Value/Fair Market Value
The value of your book before grading. This will be determined using recent online sales data and the Overstreet Price Guide.

Handling Fee
A handling fee of £13 is applied by CGC to all books submitted in the same tier.

For example:
4 comics submitted under Modern will each carry a handling fee of £3.25.
2 comics submitted under Express will each carry a handling fee of £6.50.

This fee is split between all customers making submissions at the same time. Pressing in addition to grading splits the book onto a different invoice, meaning it does not share the handling fee with non-pressed submissions. ReHolders also carry the £13 handling fee.

Slab
Slang terminology for a CGC graded book. 'Slabbing' means submitting your book for grading.
