Do you sell internationally?
At this time My Comic Addiction only ships to customers in the United States. However, in the near future we will be adding shipping methods for international customers. If you are one of these customers and would like to be notified on when this occurs please contact us using the link at the bottom of the page. you will be notified once this option is setup.
 
How are you able to sell at these cheap prices?
My Comic Addiction is able to sell comics at such cheap prices because we normally buy in bulk unless the comics are older and of higher value. We not only buy comic books from the surrounding area but we also constantly search online on a regular basis. Usually, the more comics we buy in a collection the cheaper they are, excluding shipping charges which we add into the payment and value of the comics.
 
How do you grade your comic books?
We grade our comic books by using the Overstreet grading methods and 27 point scale as well as CGC standards among other professional grading services. However, when we list our books we show the basic 10 point scaling system. You won't see a Near Mint-. Instead, we will lower the comic to the next grade down. This makes it safer for us and the customer on giving the best possible grade we can per comic. Your newly purchased comic book may grade Near Mint- by CGC but we will grade and price it as Very Fine/Near Mint. We also re-grade comic books before shipping to make sure it is in the right grade. If for some reason we need to lower the grade you will be notified and you will have a choice of a full refund or purchasing the comic at a cheaper price with the lower grade. Check out our Grading Guide section for more information.
 
How do you protect the comic books?
Comic books are protected using backing boards and comic sleeves. Most comic books are packed in two boards and sleeves. For instance, current size comics will be packed in current sized boards and bags and then packed again in silver age bags and boards for better protection. No need for the customer to spend extra for materials.
 
How do you ship my comics and are they safe?
Usually each comic book weighs around 4 ounces so if you buy up to 3 comics then we will ship them USPS First Class Mail inside a bubbled envelope surrounded with corrugated cardboard for protection. If you order more than 3 comic books then the comics will be sent USPS Priority Mail inside a padded comic box within the shipping box. If for any reason your comic book is damaged you may return it for a full refund or an exchange for the same value of your choice. All orders over $50 are automatically insured. We do it this way to keep shipping prices down. You do have an option for your books to be shipped priority; however, this will cost a bit more.
 
How fast is your shipping time and what methods do you use?
All orders are sent out the next business day. First class shipping may take up to 7 days but usually you will recieve the order much faster than this. Priority mail usually takes around 3-5 business days if not sooner.
 
When is your store updated with more comic books?
My Comic Addiction is updated around once a week with new inventory. New inventory will show as "New" for one month before being taken off of the "new" list. Check back often for new inventory. We also may update the pages with information pertaining to that certain comic book. You can also check out the New Arrivals section. This section carries all of the new inventory that we have added within the past month.
 
Who owns My Comic Addiction and why is it here?
My Comic Addiction is owned and operated by Josh Gammon, a comic book collector, buyer, and seller who has been in the business for 20+ years. The site was made so the owner could keep on collecting while at the same time share the hobby with other collectors and is not actually here to profit but instead to make money to buy more comics books. A dream come true.
 
Why should I order my comics from you first?
Why shop here first? Even though My Comic Addiction is not a huge comic book seller with millions or even hundreds of thousands of comic books, we do offer a nice variety at much cheaper prices than other comic book stores. Not to mention we look for 1st edition, special edition, variants, and unknown publisher comic books that are hard to find anywhere else. At this time we only carry collectible and back issue books. However, as we grow and expand we may venture into current subscription issues and comic related toys and memorabilia.
 
Why should I order more than one comic book?
Ordering more than one comic book at once will be less on your shipping costs. Usually 1-3 comics will cost around $3.75, 3-6 will cost around $6.50, 6-15 will cost around $13.50, and 15 or more will cost around $16.50. We also, on occasion, offer discounts for larger orders. We do not over charge on shipping like other stores do. Any extra amount is used for handling and supplies. If you are wondering why we do not ship with media mail it is because of the laws in place. Any material shipped with media mail cannot have advertising or extra business information eccept on the shipping label itself. The post offices here open media mail on a regular basis. Not to mention, free tracking is available for first class shipping and priority mail.
