    Ever notice how you become more interested in a omnibus after it has sold out, than when it is plentiful ?
    I did not think Spectre would sell out so quick and now I think O should have got it, and yet if it was still available, I would still be on the fence . Same with Grell Green Arrow

    Yes, it’s common for people to want what they can’t have, it isn’t a phenomenon specific to comic books. All marketing is based on this concept - if something is plentiful, it is less desirable than something that is rare or unobtainable. See: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/b...hing-desirable

    Yep, I placed an order on Tuesday afternoon and hasn't been picked and scanned yet, so earliest will be Monday or Tuesday is more likely. IST is just shorthanded right now in every aspect.

    My books ordered last week Tuesday haven't been picked yet, either. Not really in a rush for them, and totally understand the delay. I did pay the extra for UPS shipping, but it was only $2.75 extra, not the $4 I've heard mentioned a few times by other members here.

    Has anyone had an issues pre-ordering from TOW? I preordered and pre-paid for Batman by Morrison Vol 3 and GA by Mike Grell Omnibus back in July. The Morrison Batman omnibus has already been shipped while the GA omnibus is listed as ready to process.

    Nope.



    My replacement copy for Timely's Greatest: The Golden Age Sub‑Mariner by Bill Everett ‑ The Post‑War Years arrived! The Post Office appears to have lost the copy I ordered back in July, and once I let IST know, they said they'd send a replacement out, without any fuss. It took a little longer than they normally to arrive, but the customer service was top notch, as always.

    In regard to CGN, how are their turnaround times, usually?

    I ask because I was going to order the Wolverine omnibus with the Paul Dini Batman omnibus from IST, but the Dini omnibus got delayed.....I was trying to be nice and still get both from IST in one order so IST wouldn't have to be double-dipped on the shipping charges (Since it's free for us), and the Wolvie omnibus got sold out. That's what I get for trying to be nice, I guess.

    Anyway, I ordered the Wolverine omnibus from CGN on Sep 4, but it just says pending after all this time. The book is now sold out seemingly everywhere (Including CGN & Amazon). I'm wondering if I'm going to get the book.

    Whenever I have ordered from CGN I have always gotten my books. My Green Arrow by Grell showed pending about a week and then just shipped all of a sudden.

    Awesome.........Good to know, thanks.

    I was thinking I might've ordered while they have it on back-order and they weren't able to get it. We'll see!

    Same here. Atleast they got picked and scanned last Tuesday. But that's it.
