How are the Comics Graded?
We are not a grading service and do not provide a grading service. Our Back Issue Comic Books fall into the guidelines listed below. Any other defects would be noted in the item description. Every Comic we sell comes individually boarded and bagged. (VF–NM) Excellent condition but not guaranteed to be near mint. This is not a true grade, but a category for comics that fall anywhere between the Very Fine and Near Mint grades. The comics will be basically in “fresh off the newsstand” condition, Comic is in excellent condition. Cover is clean and flat, but may be slightly less glossy and not rolled or torn. Spine is tight and flat. Corners are square but with slight blunting permitted. Stamped or inked arrival dates may be present on older comics. Interior pages are firmly attached and staples are original. Paper may be cream to tan in color without acidic odor. No creases, staining, soiling or other discoloration.

How Long will my order take to arrive?
This really depends on where you are located in the US. We ship from Pennsylvania so orders on the east coast will arrive faster than orders on the west coast. Once the order is recieved it will usually ship within 1 business day. Then the carrier may take up to 10 business days to deliver.
