    Anybody used these guys for ordering? http://www.dcbservice.com/

    There really aren't that many comics that I'm reading regularly that are monthly's (boys/walking dead/invincible) so the order would be small (which with shipping kills the discount) but it would be nice to not have to search out a good local shop or worse have to drive into LA once a month just to pick up $10 in books.

    the discount you get at midtowncomics.com usually negates your shipping charges. it's like paying face value for your books, which is what most people do. makes me grateful i have a shop close by that sells mylars for cost and sends checklists every week instead of pull-lists, the added 15% helps too.

    If you're into Invincible and The Walking Dead I recommend Kirkman's "The Astonishing Wolf Man". Right now the series is only 14 issues in.

    Edit - I totally strayed off topic on that one, I hear Midtown comics is the way to go.

    I was going to wait for the first TPB to jump into that one.

    I checked out midtown but the books are a lot more expensive than either DCBS or Heroes Corner (2.54 vs. 1.79) the shipping is cheaper though :hsd:

    How are the peel n' stick covers?

    I've only ordered from midtown, but I've got to say I was completely satisfied with their shipping and service. Dunno about the peel n stick either. :hs:

    I order from Midtown. I've used the peel and stick bags, all they are are bags with a self adhesive on the flap. Little bit thinner though.

    OH!
    I got one of those with my issue of Wolverine, where he first extracts his bone-claws

    I prefer standard bag and board myself.

    when i first got into comics i used the peel and stick bags. they cost $1 a piece. i wasnt getting a lot of comics back then so it wasnt so bad. they are more convenient than bag and board and so much easier to use

    i dont like the idea of not being able to control my adhesive seems like it would be a disaster with getting stuck to books

    I bought some older stuff that had the adhesive, it worked fairly well but i'd rather use a small piece of tape if you had to reopen it for whatever reason.

    You'd have to be pretty retarded to get it stuck on the book. I should've stated before that the adhesive isn't on the flap, but the back of the bag. So you just pull off the strip, and then flip the flap over it.
