Captain Marvel has become very collectible over the years for a number of reasons. Firstly he is one of the only dead superheroes to never have return back to life (Died from Cancer in the 80's). Second, Captain Marvel, as well as the Warlock series, really created the space epic at Marvel. The Kree, Skrulls, Cosmic Cubes, Infinity Crisis, etc, were all in these pages. This is set during the Thanos War.

I have been grading comics for 20+ years. I grade them based on industry standard grading criteria. I also understand grading can be subjective. If you have a issue with anything I have graded, please contact me, I guarantee my condition grades, and yes, even I miss things on occasion.

There are a lot of sellers out there who have no clue how to grade, and won't stand behind their grades like I do. IF there is a descrepancy between my grade and what you get sent, contact me. I 100% guarantee my products.
I will consider all REASONABLE offers. That being said, some items are more open to offers than others.
I ship all items, next USPS business day, 99% of the time. The only exception would be for extreme weather circumstances, or I am away at a Comic Con. If you need me to ship on a different day, please contact me.
Item prices do not include Import Taxes, VAT, Customs Fees or specific Country fees. Countries import laws are all different, it is left up to the buyer to know what their own Customs laws and fees are, and to pay them accordingly.

Additionally, if you arrange different shipping method than my standard shipping method of the US Post Office there could be fees added upon delivery of the item, which are also the responsibility of the purchaser.

US Sales Tax: Etsy collects sales tax for states that have forced them too. For Massachusetts, Comics are not subject to sales tax, which is the majority of what I sell. In cases where MA sales tax applies, I eat the sale tax.
Yes, I reserve items for 7 days. I will send you a reminder on the 5th day, that the reserve will soon be up. If you fail to pay for a reserve item by the deadline, it will taken off reserve.
All my items are shipped, taking the utmost care to protect them from damage. I also insure items over a certain $ value.

For comic books, all comics I ship are sent in a NEW comic book bag, with a NEW comic book backer board, in addition comics over $35 are sent in a mylar sleeve. Comics are packaged between stiff pieces of card board, and shipped in a poly bubble bag. High value comics, or multiples of more than 6 might be boxed.

At check out you will have a choice of how to ship, based on what you are shipping and it's size/weight. Media Mail shipping is only available for books and records. It is against postal regulations to ship comic books media mail. I am willing to research other shipping options based on request.
Yes, I have approximately 20,000 in storage, all eras. Because of the way Etsy fees work, it is not worth my time to post comics under $4 here. But you can contact me with requests, and I can set up special orders via Etsy for that. I especially have long runs of Late Bronze to Copper Age Comics (1980 to the late 1980's)
I determine my prices based on what comics have been selling for for that past 6 months. I use combination of several website that track actual sales, I also monitor sales and auctions at sites dedicated to specifically selling comic books.

I review my prices every business quarter and make price adjustments (up or down) accordingly.
Yes, I am willing to do local pick-up/delivery. Delivery could have a extra charge, I am willing to deliver in the Southeastern MA, Cape Cod, and Providence RI area. Please contact us prior to purchase if you are interested in this.
Yes, unlike a lot of sites, we do high quality cover scans of every comic we have for sale, and DO NOT touch them up in photoshop nor change their size. This allows you see most of the condition issues (If you click the pic, you will get a blow up of the image) and get the true color of the comic. We only scan the front and back covers, because generally that is where most of the condition issues with a comic are. I some cases, if there are interior issues, we will photo those issues.

As always, if you want extra images of a comic, just ask. As a reminder, colors can be seen slightly different between different monitors and mobile devices.
