What a sale! After last week’s giant back issue sale online we are hard at work filling in stock. We see every back issue that is bought so we know what holes to fill after each week’s sales. If something has been out of stock for awhile, don’t fret friends! As soon as we got those comics back in we add them to the site as soon as possible. That’s why you might see some of the same things listed under our just in category. But I can’t add any back issues unless people sell me back issues. If you have any back issues, no matter how old or new they are email me! We are always buying books for cash and for store credit.

Get an extra 5% off new back issues! Over 5,000 issues added every week!
