How Do Subscriptions Work?
Subscriptions... set it and forget it
Subscribing to comics on our website is easy, there's a few options you'll have to get the things you want to subscribe to or pre-order.
If there is a comic series or mini-series, Magazine or Graphic Novel (Collected editions) you can subscribe them using our system.
You can pick the series and the quanitities you want to subscribe to.
Once you have made your selection, or system will automatically notify us to reserve the copies for you.
Now there are a few things to remember about subscriptions. Subscriptions only go forwards, they do not go backwards. It can take up to 60 days for your subscription to start. Normally it does not take that long, but it is possible.
The reason for that is because we have to place our stores total order 2 months in advance. There usually is a Final Order Cutoff (F.O.C.) date which is our last chance to increase orders. If we don't have enough ordered by the time you subscribe, then the next issue will be what gets pulled for you.
Pre-Orders... more like reservations
Most companies that offer Pre-Orders want you to pay in advance either for the whole item or for a portion of the item. We use to do this and then... COVID happened.
With the Pandemic and the major shipping delays it caused.. taking money up front for items that we are still receiving 2 years after we ordered them... just doesn't seem fair to me.
So, we put our Pre-Orders under the Subscription banner. Works just like a subscription, but instead of getting the entire series, you will just get the one issue and cover you pre-order.
Benefits Of Subscribing
You Get Your Comics
Subscribing will ensure that we have a copy of the comic you want set aside for you. At the time of this writing, Poison Ivy, Darkwing Duck, Superman, and The Riddler: Year One have all been selling out the day they have been released. If you have a subscription, you don't have to worry about the comic selling out, because we will have one pulled and set a side for you that is unavailable for anyone else to purchase for 90 days.
Subscribe And Save
By subscribing to a Comics, Magazine or Graphic Novel, you will receive a discount that is based on the total number of titles you are subscribed to.
The discount you receive will be off the cover price to the comic. This means that if you subscribed to a comic that has a value that is going up and up and up.. your price will stay the same.
- 1 to 5 subscriptions = 5% off cover price
- 6 to 10 subscriptions = 10% off cover price
- 11 to 15 subsctiptions = 15% off cover price
- 16 to 20 subsctiptions = 20% off cover price
- 21 to 25 subsctiptions = 25% off cover price
- 26 to 30 subsctiptions = 30% off cover price
- 31 or more subsctiptions = 35% off cover price
Your subscription discount will carryover to any items you Pre-Order.
When Do I Pay
We do have it set in the system to give people an option of when they want their comics to ship.
However, the team will send an invoice via email every Monday, regardless of your personal preferences. As long as you pay your invoice before the reserved date, your subscription will keep going.
Any comics we receive we will keep adding to your Invoice until you pay it.
If 90 days passes
- All the items we have pulled for you will be made available for anyone to purchase.
- Your subscriptions and pre-orders will be cancelled
- Your account will be prevented from placing any future subscription or pre-orders.
