I just found out yesterday that the comic store in my town is going out of business. This will be the fourth one. It had been over 10 plus years since the last one went out, now here we go again. Looks like it will be subscription time,(bleah!). The closest store is about one hour away, and I don't get down their much. Oh well, that seems to be how it goes in a small town. Don of the D.E.D :(

  • That sucks. Give DCBS a try (same guys as InStockTrades).

    I actually just started to subscribing to ASM direct from Marvel. Cannot beat the price, although I am scared of the quality of the shipping...time will tell.

  • Yeah, the shipping part is what I would worry about. When I bought some comics from ebay, the seller put thick pieces of cardboard on both sides of the stack of books to offer great protection. I'm still miffed that I will not have a comic store in my town!!! >Sad

  • Tomorrow will be the last time I go to the store. This sucks! Yeah, I recently bought around 280 comics from ebay and am very happy with them.

  • Also ebay is impersonal. I liked going to the store and physically being able to pick up my books. Oh well......
