SHIPPING INFORMATION:We combine shipping! ALL comics are boarded and bagged!TRACKING COMES WITH ALL COMIC PURCHASES.Shipping is set at $3.80 (shipping may be different if being shipped internationally) each extra comic will be an additional $1.00 to cover BRAND NEW sleeves and backboards and the additional weight of shipping as well as materials used for shipping it safely (protective packing material) to assure your purchase is as protected as possible.If you have purchased only one comic the shipping price will be the original $3.80 and has nothing to do with the additional $1.00 shipping for extra comics.I am a collector, I 100% understand how frustrating it is to buy comics and find them damaged in the shipping process or even packaged with good intent but making the unpacking process dangerous for the product at hand. So my goal is eliminate that experience. And no more old dusty sleeves!1-2 comics will be shipped in an envelope with two stiff cardboard slabs cut to size of envelope to prevent bending during shipping, the sleeves with backboards and cardboard make for a nice combination for safe shipping, I now use poly envelopes as they are water proof to protect your comics. The sleeves and backboards and poly envelope will assure your comic is safe from the elements during it's travel to you. I ship 1-2 comics First-Class!3+ comics are shipped in boxes! I ship heavier orders with Media Mail, that being said, I NEVER ship something Media without heavy use of bubble wrap and it MUST be in a box, no exception. Comics will ALWAYS be shipped safely secured and protected.ALL COMICS COME WITH BRAND NEW BCW ACID FREE POLY SLEEVES AND BACKBOARDS WITH RESEALABLE TAPE CLOSURE, MAKING THEM SHELF READY!
Priority Mail is an option we give for 10+ comics. We do allow you to select priority mail for a single comic and up, but our intent is to give more options for bulk orders. That being said, our price for priority mail starts at $15.00, for people wanting priority mail for raw comic orders under 10 comics we would like to point out 1-2 comics will always be shipped out First-Class which is a 2-3 day mailing service, which is the same quality service provided by priority, so our standard economy mail is as safe and as fast as a priority mail services for 1-2 comics, the only times a year that you'll see a difference with these services is around the holidays. We do have a box policy on any orders of raw comics 3+, so any who are wanting priority mail for orders 3+ the comic will be shipped in a box always, but our priority mail services will start at $15.00 shipping.
Any Priority Comic orders 1-10 will only be $15.00 with no additional $1.00. Additional $1.00 on Priority Mail orders will start at the 11th comic.SHIPPING USA DISCOUNT LISTSave money with bulk buy deals! If it’s a comic then it qualifies!

When reviewing the possible defects a comic may have as shown below for the various grades, please keep in mind that while a single defect may not reduce a comic's grade, that defect if repeated and/or combined with other accumulated defects, may push the grade down by one or more grades.
Near Mint (NM) conditionNear Mint/Mint NM/M 9.8Near Mint+ NM+ 9.6Near Mint NM 9.4Near Mint- NM- 9.2A nearly perfect copy that looks brand new with only a few very minor defects. Acceptable minor defects on a NM copy include: A very small amount of spine stresses without color breaks, very minor instances of denting (two or three at most), slight corner blunting, and minor (less than 1/8") bends without color breaks.On the ten-point grading scale, a lower grade like 9.2 will allow these defects in a greater quantity and degree than a higher grade like 9.8, which sometimes may have no discernible defects at all. We do not assign the grades 9.9 and 10.0 to any unslabbed "raw" comics. You will only see these ultra-high grades on comics slabbed by one of the grading services. There is such a small degree of separation between the grades 9.8, 9.9, and 10.0 that even the most experienced comic graders may disagree on which of these three grades to assign to an apparently flawless comic, so the highest grade we will assign to a comic is 9.8.In some cases it is possible for a comic shipped brand new from the publisher, or purchased new from a comic store's shelves, to already be in less than near mint condition due to the way the comic was produced, shipped, stored, or handled prior to purchase.
Very Fine (VF) conditionVery Fine/Near Mint VF/NM 9.0Very Fine+ VF+ 8.5Very Fine VF 8.0Very Fine- VF- 7.5A VF copy has minor defects, but is in overall excellent condition. Most well-kept modern comics (especially if they have been read) fall into this grade. Acceptable defects on a VF are minor and include: Minor corner wear, a light accumulation of spine stress that may include color-break, a light accumulation of dents, and bends or folds less than 1/4" (note that on a VF copy, some color-break is allowed in a bend/fold).
Fine (FN) conditionFine/Very Fine FN/VF 7.0Fine+ FN+ 6.5Fine FN 6.0Fine- FN- 5.5A comic in FN condition is considered "above average" but still displays some wear. In general, the eye appeal is somewhat reduced due to either an accumulation of minor defects or one or two moderate defects. Acceptable defects on a FN copy include: Slight spine roll, a moderate accumulation of spine stresses that may break color, a spine split of less than 1/2", minor water spotting or residue (less than the size of a dime), an impacted corner, and moderate foxing.
Very Good (VG) conditionVery Good/Fine VG/FN 5.0Very Good+ VG+ 4.5Very Good VG 4.0Very Good- VG- 3.5A comic in VG condition shows some significant wear, but has not accumulated enough total defects to reduce eye appeal to the point that it is not a desirable copy. A VG copy may have an accumulation of minor defects or one or two major ones. Acceptable defects on a VG copy include: Spine roll, 1/2" to 1" spine splits or other tears, a cover or centerfold that is detached at one staple, discoloration due to oxidation, and a moderate accumulation of water damage or staining.
Good (GD) conditionGood/Very Good GD/VG 3.0Good+ GD+ 2.5Good GD 2.0Good- GD- 1.8A GD copy has major defects, but is still complete and readable. A GD copy will have a significant amount of damage, usually an accumulation of smaller defects punctuated with some major defects. Acceptable defects on a GD copy include: A vertical book-length crease, 1.5"-2" spine split, cover or centerfold completely detached, major tears, heavy discoloration/brittleness due to oxidation, heavy amounts of staining, residue, and water damage.
Fair (FR) conditionFair/Good FR/GD 1.5Fair FR 1.0A FR is the lowest grade a comic book can receive as long as the story and art are complete. A FR copy will have virtually no eye appeal and will display major damage. A comic book in FR condition may have non-story elements such as coupons, ad pages, or Marvel Value Stamps cut or torn out of the book. Types of damage that place a comic in FR range include: A spine split of up to 2/3 the length of the book, a missing back cover provided the front cover is still attached, severe water damage or residue damage, mold, and paper deterioration due to oxidation.
Poor (PR) conditionPoor PR 0.5Comic books in PR condition may be missing up to 4 pages (two spreads) of story pages or display severe damage that affects the readability of the book.
