About

Your one stop shop for Vintage Geekery!

Looking for a high condition hard to find comic? Missing your old school Role Playing Game books and items? Missing that toy from your youth?

RubberSuit Studios specializes in finding, picking, and selling vintage geekery. Our main inventory is comic books, but we also have toys, home decor items, games, and cosplay items.

We specialize in key copper, bronze, and silver age comics (1960 - 1990), and are constantly buying and selling. We look for high condition comics, comics that will get high CGC grades, key and historical comics, and constantly monitor sales to get try and get you the most accurate price.

We have in stock a range from Platinum to Modern age comics. We also have more in inventory, that what we have listed here on Etsy, so if there is something you are looking for, please contact us, we might have it, or be able to get it.

Comic books are fragile antiques, and should be handled correctly and be there for generations to come. We bag, board, and properly store all our comics once we get them, in a smoke free, and climate controlled environment. We handle and ship our items with the utmost care and protection

Frequently asked questions

How do you Grade your items?

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.

Do you take offers?

I will consider all REASONABLE offers. That being said, some items are more open to offers than others.

I after order an item, how long until you ship?

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.

Who would win in a fight? Superman or Batman?

Well this is a very easy question to answer, unless Batman can sneak up on Superman (which is extremely hard) Superman can move much faster than Batman can react. Basically Superman would turn Batman into red mist. Now the Hulk vs. Superman, that could get interesting.

Can I reserve an item?

Yes, I reserve items for 7 days. I will send you a reminder on the 5th day, that the reserve will soon be up.

How are your items shipped?

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.

Do you have more comics than what you have listed here?

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)

How do you determine your prices?

I determine my prices based on what comics have been selling for for that past 6 months. I mainly use the Comic GPA Analysis (http://comics.gpanalysis.com) for a price guide but I also monitor sales and auctions at site dedicated to selling comic books.

I review my prices every business quarter and make price adjustments (up or down) accordingly.

Do you do local pick-up/delivery?

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 and Providence RI area. Please contact us prior to purchase if you are interested in this.

Are the images I see of the comic the actual comic I am going to get?

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 hit "ZOOM" under 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.
