Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a real store I can visit?

Not yet. We're currently in "beta" while we see if there's enough local interest in this concept. You can learn more about why we're doing it on our About page.

Are all the books brand new?

Yep! We have an eBay store that focuses on preowned and out of print graphic novels, but everything on the site here is new product.

How is my order packed?

We've been on the other end of shoddy packaging, so we take care to send books safe and secure. Usually that means wrapped in a Gemini Flash Mailer built specifically for graphic novels, but larger orders may be shipped in cardboard boxes stuffed full of packing paper to keep the books from jiggling.

How long will my order take to arrive?

We keep some local inventory that ships next business day, but many books are special ordered from the distributor at the time of purchase and will be shipped as soon as they're received. You'll be provided with shipping updates along the way via email notification, and you can always email or chat us if you have questions about your order.

How do preorders work?

If you preorder an upcoming release, you'll be charged at the time of purchase and the book will ship as soon as it's received from the publisher after the street date. Occasionally, release dates will slip, but we'll keep you in the loop if anything like that happens.

Why should I shop with you instead of Amazon?

I mean...that's the existential question of the millennium, right? We're trying to thread the needle between shopping online and shopping local, providing the kind of personalized service you'd get from a local store with the value of an online store. You might be able to find the same book a little cheaper if you dig around for an hour online, but we guarantee we'll appreciate your business more than they ever could.
