PGX’s reliable, consistent Comic Book Grading services’ for Collectors and Resellers.

 How we grade comics.
Every book submitted to PGX undergoes a painstakingly careful and thorough grading & certification process conducted by our team of PGeXpert Graders:

  •  1st – Pre Grader gives your comic initial review
  • 2nd – Primary Grader & Restoration expert review
  • 3rd – Senior Grader provides final grade

 Then each graded comic book has a PGX Certification Label; is carefully encapsulated in PGX’s inner holder with special micro-chamber paper;  sealed in our exclusive PGX Outer Holder; meticulously packaged; and sent on its way back to you… on time… as promised!
