Mile High Goes For The Gold

As I predicted, this past weekend saw a remarkably strong surge in our online sales. The wonderful new selection of Golden Age (1938-1954), Silver Age (1955-1974), and Bronze Age (1975-1982) comics that our inventory teams have added during the past week have spurred a remarkably high number of you to place orders with us.

I have to tell you in all honesty, however, that this is just the beginning of our increase in available rare comics on our website. We now have a dozen staff members grading, bagging, entering, and filing books from my buying trip of two weeks ago, and their efforts are resulting in thousands of comics being added into our New-In-Stock listings each day.

For those of you who might not have yet checked out our New-In-Stock listings, it not too late. As I mentioned earlier, thousands more issues are being added each day. So while some rare issues have already sold out, others may just have been made available today. The only way to know if what you're seeking is now available is to check out our current listings:

I tried to be selective, for the most part only picking titles where we've added at least ten new items during the past seven days, but even utilizing that criteria I ended up skipping a slew of good titles to keep the lists a bit shorter.

As a special note, please be aware that we've added a huge number of older Archie issues this week, as well as a number of books from Dell, Gold Key, Harvey, and Charlton. Our offerings this week are really a bonanza of opportunity for all of you, especially considering that our across-the-board 40% off discounts are still in effect.

You can also still earn free shipping for any back issue order over $40 for delivery in the USA, and any back issue order over $100 for delivery worldwide (no express carriers).

Please enjoy shopping for your collection with our best wishes. We're having lots of fun, and we're hoping that you are, too!

Happy collecting!
