    Your local comic shop.

    Check out local.google.com or something similar, I found a couple of comic shops fairly close (within 30-40min) using it.

    I think it's a place where people can come together to buy and sell porn. Not sure though. :dunno:

    PS: No pun intended.

    And here's a shipping schedule from Diamond:
    http://www.diamondcomics.com/shipping.asp

    The show this week and next week's stuff (whatever is solicited in Diamond Previews will show up on this list), and they have an archive that goes back for years if you REALLY wanted to know when a comic shipped. It's useful for me to see what I need to pick up the current week to see if my LCS screws up my pull.

    not a place to buy, but you might be able to use to trade, but I catalog my collection on this site:

    www.comicbookdb.com It's a pretty decent site active and growing.

    Every time I see this thread I read it as "Sticky places, to buy comics..." and I think "Am I really this retarded?" And the answer to this is yes. Yes I am.

    Any good links for buying downloadable comics? I know Slave Labour has their own dl site now, I'm wondering if there are any others yet.

    Now that I've got a nice big monitor, I really like reading them in cbr format, but I'd like to be getting SOME money to the folks doing the writing and drawing as well.

    From what I know, Marvel and DC don't want to do this, but a few small publishers are "thriving" off it. However, some are also sinking, so that doesn't really bode well for that industry as long as Marvel/DC stay out. I don't know where I read this from though.

    I'll push for my local shop, they offer weekly subscription services world wide and also offer an area to sell collectables of the comic and figure kind.
