I couldn't find a sub forum that about comic book retailers.
It seems like there's a sub forum for everything but retailers.
I generally get my comic books online. THis isn't because CS's don't exist out here, it is because they won't carry specific titles. The reason they don't usually has to do with certain titles being late more often than they're not. The dude who started that thread on this forum, the one about late books. If he lived out here, he'd be able to start up a gang with all of the store owners out here who are sick of books being late, and who have stopped carrying specific books for being late. However, I didn't start this thread to discuss late books. What I'm looking for is a reputable online comic book retailer, one that allows customers to subscribe to titles like TFAW does.
I've tried TFAW, Scifigenre, and Heavy Ink, and all three did a bang up job when it comes to sending my books on time. However, more often than not, the comics are being delivered with dog ears, dents, dings, and what have you. So I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with an online retailer that packages the titles in a way that they always are delivered in near mint condition. And I am in no way bashing TFAW, Scifigenre, or Heavy Ink. In fact, I recommend all three to those who just casually read comics and don't give a rats ass about re-sell value.
I'm also slightly curious about one other thing. Has anyone noticed that the image titles they buy are at times bent up a lil on the shelves of CS's? THe reason I ask is because I do order titles from other pubs as well, and the ones from other pubs are often in near mint condition when they're delivered. The ones that are generally bent up a bit are the Image/Top Cow ones. For example, I subscribed to Tracker from Top Cow last year or the year before, each issue came to the house with bent corners, but the other titles that were in the package were always in better condition.
Coincidence? Most likely.. but I figured I'd ask anyways.
