if you have any questions.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All comics listed are individually graded.
The standard comic grades that we use for comic books on this site is as follows:
NM (Near Mint) 9.0 or higher out of 10 - An great copy with white pages. The slightest of imperfections may be seen, such as one or two microscopic marks on the spine.
VFN (Very Fine) 8.0 out of 10 - A sharp, glossy and clean copy. Tight and flat with the slightest of wear. No significant marks.
FN (Fine) 6.0 out of 10 - An above average copy. Slightly more wear. Cream to off-white pages.
VG (Very Good) 4.0 out of 10 - A misnomer. A copy with possibly several minor tears, and light creases. Perhaps a small amount of pen on the cover. Off-white to tan colour pages.
G (Good) 2.0 out of 10 - A worn copy with slightly heavier creases and longer tears. Possible spine-roll. Still complete though.
FAIR (Fair) 1.0 out of 10 - A tired and unhappy comic. Very worn. Severe tears and creases. Perhaps a detached cover.
POOR (Poor) 0.5 out of 10 - Totally wrecked. This copy could be totally defaced. Brittle pages are possible as are missing pages.
Sometimes a "" or a "-" is used if a grade falls between two of
the main grades listed above - this adds or subtracts 0.5 to the ten point score
Each comic grade shown, is the final grade, which will include any downgrading due to non-apparent defects (restoration, pen marks etc)
******* We ourselves never use split grades. *******
Sometimes we will list a CGC certified split grade book.
As our system only allows full grade listings, the grade of these books is rounded down for technical reasons, but a full grade is shown in the books description.
As a UK based company, we sell Cents, Pence, Pence Stamped and dual currency copies of comics. Cents issues are not generally differentiated. If you only want a Cents copy, please email us after you have placed your order with your request.

All comics books and magazines are securely sent in either custom book mailers or in boxes with sufficient padding. We never post comics in envelopes.
Busts, Statues and Action Figures are always shipped in well packed boxes.
Order turnaround is normally 1-5 days, but please allow at least 14 days before chasing an outstanding order, as sometimes we are extremely busy.
None of our packets will fit in a letterbox. If you are not at home, Royal Mail or Parcel Force should leave a note for you to contact your local depot. This may not always happen, so please check with your local Royal Mail depot before chasing up your order.
We do not have any minimum order value, but the minimum shipping amount in the UK is £3.00 for each order. If you place more than one order the same day, we can normally combine both orders for shipping to save on costs.
UK Standard Comic Postage is GBP 3.00 for the first three comics plus 20p per each additional comic. Recorded post in the UK is available at Checkout for an additional GBP 1.00 per order.
Scottish Highlands And Islands with postcodes IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17-26, PH30-44, PH49-50 and ZE have the same shipping rates as standard UK mainland rates, but are subject to a maximum shipping cost of £16.00.

We have several countries that have a seperate shipping maximum. These are:

Rest Of The World Comic Airmail Postage is GBP 6.00 for the first four comics plus 70p per each additional comic with no maximum.
This formula does work very well, but we will try to reduce the shipping costs wherever possible if the actual cost is less than the website calculated cost.
Graphic novels, magazines etc are double the comic rate.
Archival Supplies are very heavy and mostly will attract the GBP 8.00 maximum rate in the UK. Overseas shipping for Archival Supplies and Merchandise will be very expensive. Running an order through to checkout will show any shipping costs - before you confirm that order.
Combining comics with Archival Supplies will save you money on postage.
Most statues, busts and action figures will attract a minimum of GBP 5.00 UK shipping.
We try to avoid any abbreviations on this website. The only common ones are SA (Silver Age), GA (Golden Age). You might also see ND (Non Distributed) and LD (Low Distribution). These relate to comics sold in the UK newsagents during the seventies and early eighties. ND comics never made it to the newsagents, and LD comics were only sold in very few newsagents (mainly in coastal towns).
We hope that the above covers everything you might need to know, but please email us or telephone us on 01304-832335 if you have any questions. Thanks.
