@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.

My LCS only has new books (long boxes with 1-2 year old books). Lucky...!

Just in today.

I need 6 more issues to finish Batman Volume 1 100-713.

I only have 17 issues below 100. So the rest is a bit of a struggle.

I have made many acquaintances and friendships over the years which have developed into a lasting trust of sellers and dealers I usually will deal with.

That said... at some point in order to expand on your trust worthy network of people you have to take a few leaps of faith in order to weed out the bad.

MyComicShop is among one of the top dealers on my trust list as long as there is a photo of the book. Without a photo I am taking the chance of getting books with mis-wrapped covers, which are personally not acceptable for my collecting needs. MCS is the only one I would take a chance on unseen books.

There are a few Red flags that will make me immediately skip past a sellers listing.

#1 No Photos and/or Stock Photo's
#2 No Stated Grade or description because "Your Not a Professional Grader"
