Got these in today by way of @Mountie73 and his 14 year old son. Transaction was as smooth as silk, books came in as advertised and well packaged. Below is a link to their Hipcomic.com store.

@Darkseid_of_town, that would be a bonus, I just picked items that I thought looked cool that I normally wouldn't buy and found these gems. I like my choices and thanks for the tip sir, I appreciate it.

CONAN CALL! Ive been on a roll finding some more super nice Conan Books





Its always against my better judgement to buy books without seeing them, but I took a chance on a few Conan Issues from MyComicShop. I will post when I get them.

These just arrived today. I like the new slabs quite a bit. They feel sturdier but still have the slim design.

must have gotten them from ebay I am guessing? Odd they wouldn't have scans....My experience over eight years with MCS is they tend to undergrade as much as a full grade on the books I get...I have had two sets of books from them I felt were exceptions, out of hundreds.
I hope you weren't buying their books off ebay though, they are much cheaper if you buy directly from their site if possible...(fees and all that I guess)

I didn't just purchase mine from eBay, why did you just assume that? Actually I purchased directly from the MCS site. Whenever a picture is not available you never know what you are getting, just a grade posted does not mean your copy will be NM. But, like you said, MCS tends to under grade which is a good thing.

But, not always the case...I recently purchased a sight unseen comic from them marked as NM, but when it arrived it had a dented corner and hideous spine crease! I returned it with no problems. Other times I have ordered copies in VF and they arrive looking NM/M!!

Ive never once ever seen a book for sale from MCS on their site with no image..so it made me wonder how you got one? I do know that if they have multiple copies of the same comic for sale, there is some rule or whatever I believe from ebay where only the first listing can use a unique photo and the rest have to be stock photos or something like that..so you can get a comic from them off ebay sometimes that has no image except a stock photo if that makes sense.
that's what directly led to the assumption it was an ebay listing of theirs...never seen them list comics for sale with no images off their direct site.

MANY comics on the MCS site do not have individual scans, especially moderns. There seems to be several different criteria that will get a comic scanned, but it's usually books that are over $20 in value from what I've seen. And that is just a general observation on my part. I have not studied it. Otherwise, they just use a stock image and give grades. I'm fairly sure that is what @brysb meant by his original statement ... that there wasn't an individual scan of that comic.

ah I see..I must have never bought anything that fell in the lower price bracket to not generate images. I do remember now the moderns they sell aren't unique images, but I seldom if ever buy new books so I hadn't given that much thought.
Makes good sense, thanks for explaining Jesse.

Well I hope the comics come the way he hoped or better...ive bought from them 7-8 years and only gotten books twice out of the auction that I felt were badly graded enough to be worth noting. Both times were groupings or lots of silver age books sold within the auction however

My recent submission grades are in from CBCS. Super excited by the outcome on both. The Caliber presents was not pressed as only defect I saw was a color rub and that's what she got dinged for.

Been chasing this one for a while. eBay seller offered a deal I could pass up. Hoping to press and resubmit for the new case from CBCS. I have others to post but just can’t find the time.

Not really “new”, but newly graded. It arrived a few days behind schedule, I’m assuming due to COVID.

Anyway, this was a raw purchase at a local Con a year or two back. The seller claimed a 5.5 & I had it figured for a 4.5. Had it press screened and it was accepted.

I’m fine with the end result. And I completely forgot I purchased the custom label.

Not a bad start to rebuilding my ASM 1-20 run.

@brysb The two Conan Books I posted were individual buys from Trusted Ebay Sellers.


I have Not received the 6 Conan books from MyComicShop yet. Ive had fairly good luck with them. The main issue I have with buying without photos is that I am unable to see if the books are Mis-Wraps, which I hate and would not buy them. We'll see..... Best of luck with your order.

@BigRedOne1944 I totally relate to what you just said. My experiences are not comic related, but had an impact that me getting the comics I want (again) have become an extra slow process. All because some sellers would show a nice stock image, or none, and not send me what they were showing.

It's also why I am a bit iffy about using MCS at this stage of me getting any remaining comics I need. Double with what you said about mis-wraps. That is just... Ugh.
