I know we have a thread about comic book report cards and a few other threads about problems with buying comics. I keep reading negative stuff about TFAW shipping on unrelated threads. I thought that maybe people could share their top three online comic book stores and why they buy from them. I am always looking for another place to buy popular hard-to-find comics that are heating up. A thread about where to buy comics would add value to the community. List your top three comic book stores. If you want to say why that is a plus.
My top three comic books sellers:
I get low-priced ratios and can buy hard-to-find comics that are heating up post-FOC. They also have good discounts pre-FOC.
You get the biggest discount here. Items I know I am going to buy two months ahead of time I buy here.
I buy comics here that are hard to find at a good price that is one per customer. I also buy comics that I think are going to be popular right before they hit the news stands.
The shop here does that. Unfortunately I don’t think anyone brings their books to them because they are so poorly run, but I remember going to the counter once and the guy was telling me something and pulled out the price guide…I was like oh man!
I have yet to receive any damaged books from either.
Impulse I like because I determine when things get shipped, they just hold all my stuff. I often don’t buy a lot of books so logistically it makes more sense for me.
MyComicShop-They package well and I also like that I can buy back issues and piggyback them onto my sub orders. Throw stuff on your notification list and you can jump on it when it comes in.
Those are the two main online ones I use besides ebay. I have a lot of shops locally so if I can’t get it online, I buy it locally. There’s a place called Book Nook here in Atlanta that is just killer for back issues, every time I go, I find some gems.
