    I noticed as well. Perhaps it's due to uncertainty with stock delivery because of COVID.

    That one is certainly a lot better than its reputation. One of the strongest X-events of the 90's for sure (though I'm a sucker for Age of Apocalypse).

    Beware that early 90's X-Men is a lot better than mid-to-late 90's X-Men (at least in my opinion). And there are a bit too many crossovers with the not always steller other X-books (X-Force,...

    I'm waiting for a 232 order from Forbidden Planet. They e-mailed me that they shipped it on December 28th, but I was not given a tracking number. I e-mailed them today to ask for a such, as I...

    I needed something completely different after Onslaught, so I jumped on Amazing Spider-Man by J. Michael Straczynski Omnibus Vol. 2. This is the first Spider-Man I've ever read from this time period,...

    That's my experience as well, the detoriation from previously good service. I only started buying there about half way through 2020, so I didn't build up years of good experiences with them to...

    But how long will it take them to do so? Clearly, a month wasn't enough time. Poor service.

    The deal ensured no tolls and tariffs - but VAT will still be charged. So for me, I'd have to pay 25 % VAT + a fee for the post office handling the VAT. Rather cost prohibitive for me now, sadly.

    Yeah last time I had a book like that, I ended up asking them to cancel it if they couldn't ship it within a reasonable time period. So they just cancelled it without even as much as an apology....

    They have become extremely slow to ship their orders during the last several months. It's one of the reasons (but not the only reason) why I will no longer shop there.

    Bear in mind btw. that due...

    Currently reading Avengers/X-Men: Onslaught Complete edition vol. 1 and 2. While I read an abridged version of this backin the 90's, and thus am already perfectly familiar with the overall story arc,...

    I'm done with Booksetc now. After having sent me 3 books that were in pretty rough shape in my last order, I sent them pictures of the damage. They then wrote back that they "were not able to" offer...

    Amazon now mailed me to cancel this order (without any form of reasoning behind). Did anyone else get this? I find it extremely poor taste of them to do so, given their "pre-order and get it at...

    Trades are easier to store, cheaper and typically collects a finished arc. I don't know what kind of paper quality single issues has these days, but it used to be terrible - which also factors in.

    That would be Spawn. While I haven't read anything Spawn-related since the 90's, I still remember - being a huge fan of McFarlane on Hulk and, especially, Spider-man - the impact this character made...

    The glooming threat of Brexit made me jump on an order from Hiddenplanet last night, to get some books that Booksetc. don't have. Also made an order at cheap-comics, just because. And I'm still...

    Yeah they must have. The problem for me when they ship from different locations is that they don't always use tracking numbers when doing multiple shipments in one order. I've lost a one comic they...
