    I use amazon, they are fair priced in shipping to Japan, and takes between 1 and 2 weeks for me to receive usually.

    looks like that site has good discounts. the webpage is confusing though, when i clicked on back issues it sent me to a totally different website. have you ordered from them before?

    When I am looking for a monthly (usually a back issue) that I can't get at a LCS I usually turn to TFAW or Milehighcomics.com. Their prices are not outrageous and their shipping rates to Canada are high, but not insanely so. However their customer service is awesome and if they tell you your comic is going to ship within 7 business days you better believe you will be reading your comic no later than day 7.

    For MHC definitly subscribe to their newsletter. They'll bombard you with at least one email every day or so, but you'll also get discount codes for amazing sales.

    The vast majority of what I am buying these days is TPB and manga, so as I mentioned in the Canadian online comic shopping thread, any TPBs and/or manga that I can't get at a LCS, I usually buy from Amazon.ca. Fast turnaround and service, prices competitive with what the LCS would offer if they were carrying those items, excellent selection and, most importantly, I almost always get free shipping.

    I've never order back issues from them.

    The discounts override the confusing system for me.

    You have to enter the quanity you want to order and then save order before you move to a new "page" to order something else. I missed a couple of comics learning their system.

    Default Buying comics online in Australia

    Are there any Australians on this board that buy their monthly titles online? If so, can you recommend a site?

    What would be really amazing is if I could submit my monthly pull list and have them sent as they're released. I might be reaching just a little too far on this request though.

    Hi Rob. I don't buy my comics online, I usually buy them in Melbs at Minotour in Elizabeth Street.

    Minotour do have a website so maybe you could enquire there whether they'd post your pull list to you. The website addy is below:

    Minotour Website


    Hope that helps some.

    I usually do my shopping at Alternate Worlds on Chapel Street but with work now, it's a little hard to get out there when I want to.

    Thanks, Mermaid. I'll send Minotaur an email soon, I didn't know they had an online store.

    Mnn yeah, Chapel Street is not the best to get to when it's busy. Good luck with Minotaur, their web site looks quite informative and up to date.

    I'll give a kingdom of gold to anyone who can find me an online comic book shop that has Daytripper #2 in stock. A shop that ISN'T ebay and that ships internationally.

    I buy single issue comic books off ebay. They do have some good offers too ; that depends on your luck. You can even get rare books, and also a collection of comic books.

    While Amazon is perfect for tradebacks as you get over $5 discount at many cases.

    A third vote for DCBS. There is no way I could afford to collect what I do without them. For older stuff, mycomichop.com has the best prices I've found, and I usually cross-compare their TPBs with Amazon, sometimes one will outdo the other a bit. When milehigcomics has their uber sales, you can get some good deals, otherwise I find them a bit pricey.

    I am a former customer of expertcomics, very very bad service I was always missing books, they always seemed to goofing up on something. They're former owner emailed everyone to let them they were hacked. I switched over to DCBS which was recommended to me by the former owner couldnt be happier.
