Collector poka private msg quote post Address this user
Been a while but time for another charity sale. Hope those of you who managed to get the free giveaways of UF #4 2nd prints have noticed how much those books have appreciated

100% of the proceeds will go to a project to be chosen

--------------

The flash sale will contain titles starting with A through D. it will be a mix of modern regular, variants and older stuff. There will be a free giveaway.

T&C:

First person who claims a lot buys it. You need to clearly indicate which lot you are claiming by either stating the name of the lot or replying to the picture.

Details of the giveaway and lucky draw will be provided in separate post

Shipping will be done from Hong Kong. I will charge actual. For US expect $5.95 for the first 2 comics (not lots) and $0.75 for each subsequent comic. For other locations - let me know and I will provide you with an estimate. For lots with multiple comics I will reduce the shipping cost as much as possible. Estimated shipping time for US is approx 2 weeks. Please note that for the time being I continue to be unable to ship to Canada unless by ground. However, I will be happy to hold comics for you until such time where the Postal Services to Canada resumes hopefully shortly.

Payment is via PayPal. Please wait paying until invoiced.

Any purchases can be returned at buyer’s cost within 14 days of receipt.

Any items not sold during the Flash sale will be available to buy for 1 day

See you on Sunday.

Rules for the lucky draw of the free giveaway(s)

1. The draw will be held 24 hours later, ie Monday 7:30PM EST using the usual on-line platform where you can immediately check whether you won.
2. Each person who buys during the sale will get 1 entry
3. First person who buys during the sale will get 1 extra entry
4. For every $50 purchase by each buyer 1 extra entry (ie $50-$99 1 extra entry, $100-$150 2 entries etc
5. For every 5 lots by each each 1 extra entry (ie 5-9 lots 1 extra, 10-14 lots 2 extra entries etc
6. Towards the end of the sale a picture of the free giveaway will be shown where you need to be fast. The first person who claims the picture (sorry comic cannot be claimed ) will get 3 extra entries, the second person who claims 2 extra entries, the third person who claims 1 extra entry. To be valid you need to reply to the picture stating “claim” “I take it” or something similar.
7. Before the sale starts there will be the usual competition who can make the closest guess to the total sale. The person who guess the closest will get 2 extra entries. The $ amount to be counted will be from the sale starts to the last lot is listed.

Most importantly - in order to be eligible for the lucky draw - you need to have purchased at least 1 lot BEFORE the lucky draw takes place

Good luck everyone
