    I see all this talk about TOW. Why not CGN? Does nobody here use them? I pre-ordered Silver Surfer omni from them. I think this is my first time going through CGN, hope I don't regret it.

    I use them. I think they're decent, but I will admit I'm not as worried about how the corners of my omnibii look, so I don't notice if anything happens to them. They pack everything reasonably well (everything bagged together, then stuffed newspaper all around to keep the pile from shifting) in pretty sturdy boxes. I don't think they're particularly fast or anything, but they are responsive to e-mails when you have issues (either before or after shipping).

    Was Silver Surfer 1 already sold out at IST and Cheap Graphic Novels?

    I find them scummy. It seems like they are practically scouring IST and constantly refreshing their page to see if something goes out of stock so they can up their price. Honestly, I know its more likely that they also get inside info since they are a seller, so it's probably a coincidence. But what i have noticed is that a book on my IST wishlist will become unavailable and when I check CGN they have raised their price. Again, they probably just know that it is going out of print because they're also a store, but raising the price like that, I don't know, I just find it to be scummy. I have an ebay seller I use frequently that is usually good and priced well but they do the same thing. Maybe I'm just being dumb, but it rubs me the wrong way.

    I also read something online once claiming that a guy was at their store and overheard Max, which is who I've dealt with at CGN, telling another employee that a certain omnibus was going out of print in the very near future so they could finally jack up the price and the copies they had been holding in the back and finally make some "real money". I say this fully acknowledging that I did not witness this so the person that made this post could absolutely be lying, but just with stuff I have witness and stuff I've read online, it doesn't paint a great picture so I only use them as a last resort.

    And all that said, when I have ordered from them, I don't believe I've ever had an issue with packaging or book arriving in proper condition.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I mostly worry about the condition the books come in. I guess as long as it's not Amazon I'm happy.

    I agree with you. I can understand why they do this, but I like IST and DCBS more because they never play with the prices. When an omnibus is out of print one can sometimes find it at CheapGraphicnovels no longer discounted, but sometimes they'll even sell it double the price. I saw that with the Amazing Spiderman 3 which they were selling for like $250 for their last copy.

    Agreed. They have a right to do that, but I certainly have the right to disapprove and stay away. I only use them as a last restore or during their big sales.

    I’m seeing everyone pretty excited for this Silver Surfer omni reprint coming out this upcoming week. I can’t make up my mind on it. I worry it’s going to be dated and hokey. Is this one the exception from that era?

    Definitely. It's one of Stan Lee's best imo.

    It is very wordy but it's not boring in any way and is in fact very enjoyable. I have the first printing and it's one of my favourite Omnibuses, I had a blast reading it. John Buscema's art just shines in the oversized format.

    Absolutely agree. It's also one of my favourite runs of all time and caused the skyrider to be one of my favourite heroes.

    You guys sold me. Also, as I only have the Slott omni, I could use more silver surfer. Now just a matter of which cover to go with. I’m leaning towards the DM variant. I like the all silver.

    So unfortunately I wasn't able to get an answer. Can anyone speak to ordering their pre-orders from TOW? With the current state of things selling out so quickly, anyone thinking its gonna be worth it to start doing that Instead of continually refreshing IST? I know for myself, I'm a firefighter so I could get a rescue or fire right at 3 on a Tuesday and by the time I'm done, good chance some of this stuff will be sold out. I'm thinking it might be worth it for me to do, just wanted to know if people have done that and if it was good?
