Can I subscribe for In-Store pickup on the website if I don't want mail order?

  1. Unfortunately no, all in store subscriptions are currently being handled in store only.
    Each store can be contacted directly via the managers e-mail address located on each of the stores dedicated page on our website.
    Click on STORES at the top of the screen and select your location from the drop down menu, on there you will find manager contact information and store hours/information.
  2. Any changes to your store subscriptions must be made either in person or via e-mail to the stores above, but not through the website.

When and how often are new comics released?

New comics come in every Wednesday. Most titles are released once a month, some twice a month and others every other month or even later.

Can I subscribe to more than one copy of any title?

From your My Subscriptions page under your account, You can select any quantity desired for any title. For example, you may want 2 copies of Saga but only 1 copy of Batman each month. If a title is released with 50/50 cover splits, and you are down for 2 copies, you will receive 2 copies of what the publisher considers the Standard cover as the split cover is considered a variant cover.

How To Add A Non Subscription Item to your Pending Subscription Order.

Say you see an older back issue, or a book you have not (or do not plan on subscribing to but would like to try out first), You can add it to your Pending Subscription Order by simply adding the item to your cart and click Checkout.On the checkout page simply review the information and select the option to Ship With My Next Subscription Order and complete checkout. This will add the item to your pending order. You will not be charged for this item until your order is set to ship (based on what you have set up on the Subscription Account Page.)

Is there a minimum number of titles required?

No. You may subscribe to as little as one book if you like. But to receive a discount you must hit a 10 titles minimum.

How do you handle variant covers?

If you are interested in receiving variant covers of a title - we now have the option to subscribe to those as well.
On your My Subscriptions page, on your list of subscribed titles, to the right the subscription Quantity box you will see a drop box with 5 options to select from:

  • No variants
  • Variants $10 and under
  • Variants $25 and under
  • Variants $50 and under
  • All variants regardless of price (Be advised this will subscribe you to even the most expensive variants.
    If you have a set cutoff regarding how much you are willing to spend above the $50 mark, please contact us)

If you choose a qty. of 1 and select variants $10 and under for a title like Fantastic Four (for example) and Marvel releases a regular cover, a 1 in 10 cover priced at $6.99 and a 1 in 50 priced at $29.95, you will end up with 2 copies of Fantastic Four that month. The regular copy and the 1 in 10 copy, but not the 1 in 50. Subscribing to a variant does NOT guarantee your receiving the variant.

Subscribers get preferential treatment as all variants are first handed out to them, but some variants are so rare (1 in 700 for example) that we simply can not get enough copies to cover ALL CUSTOMERS.
We will take into factor how long you've been a subscriber and when you signed up for the title in determining who is to receive the rarest of the books.

If you see a specific variant you would like to add to your order (for example you just want one specific variant, not every single one under the price point you have selected) see the instructions for adding non subscription books to your order below.

Any changes to your variant pulls, such as if you would like to sign up for variants, or change your price point cutoff, these changes must be made The Tuesday One Week Before Release.This will allow us to adjust the inventory and secure your copies. Any changes made after this point will not reflect on your account until the following week.

When will my charge card be charged?

Your credit card will not be charged until we process your order for shipping. You are only charged for the books currently being shipped to you. The rate at which you are charged is what you set up on your subscription account or at Six months, depending on which comes first.
