    Bought some comics from them yesterday.

    Good to know. I bought the Saga deluxes from Cheap-Comics and was really impressed with their packing. It was hard to open it and get the comics

    Cheap-Comics has the best packaging I've ever experienced - but the books they package within are not always in prime condition, sadly.

    Booksetc is currently my favorite comic book shop, with a general mix of good prices, good condition and good packaging. I just wish they had more new comics in stock.

    It's just a shame that their website is so frelling slow though. Booksetc that is.

    Nice I've never experienced it with comics but recieving damaged goods that you have to send back is such a headache. I once had to send back an entire dinner table

    Yeah. Some times are worse than others, but performance is generally sloppy.

    I'd recommend using websites which compare prices online, shipping to your location included, like "gettextbooks.com". Sadly, they tend not to include stores exclusively selling comics, so you'll have to check their prices nonetheless. Otherwise, I haven't bought from every store, but I've tried a few:

    - I received my first 2 books from BookDepository not long ago. The sealed omnibus arrived in a cardboard with no other protection and the dust jacket has a small tear. Nothing awful, especially since I purchased it with 40% off cover price, but still slightly frustrating. The new paperback, in a classic cardboard envelope, also has a small tear on the cover. I'll give them other chances.

    - Cheap-comics is my favourite website. Their prices are very competitive during sales and when it comes to shipping costs. I'm French and I spend 14€ on shipping no matter how many books I ordered. Their packaging is excellent, 100% success rate out of many orders.

    - Booksetc is pretty cheap and has classic packaging, I've received 1 slightly damaged book from them out of 12 orders. A lot of books are out of stock though.

    - For Amazon and eBay, just check the satisfaction rate. I personally never buy if it's lower than 95% and I've never had any issue with the many paperbacks I've bought. Also, checking Amazon versions for other countries in Europe can lead to finding cheaper books or books that are out of print. For instance, I found "Batman: The Caped Crusader vol.1" for 25€ shipping included on amazon.de, when I couldn't find it under 55€ anywhere else.

    I am tempted to buy from them but there is no mention of shipping cost at The checkout page.

    If you go to your basket you can see the tekst 'calculate shipping' on the bottom. Press that and then you enter your adress and calculate the shipping.
