All New X-Men 24
X-Men Legacy 300
. . .
As I have no confidence in Hastings to be order this for me, I enlisted our friends at Amazon and preordered this :
X-Men : No More Humans by Mike Carey and Salvador Larroca, right now for $18.62 instead of the $24.99 it will be once it comes out, which is a savings of 25 percent!
Hastings couldn’t locate it as a comic or as a book, so I went this route and will for sure get a copy of it now.
Also, since I have no confidence with Hastings, I am going to be moving over to DCBS, Discount Comic Book Service, which I’ve been tempted to do ever since they have started sponsoring the Uncanny X-Cast. It just now is the right time for me to do it.
I’m going to try to keep my shipments to under $40 and if I can do that and get weekly shipping, that’s a bonus! If not, I’ll have to play with the shipping and try to keep this little hobby of mine on the affordable side.
Turns out the discounts are pretty much the same as when I worked at Hastings, so that’s nice. Weekly shipping amounts to $12.95 so that is essentially the gas I would have spent to pick them up, that’s how I’m going to view it.
If I do monthly shipping, for my five books in May, I would be spending roughly only $20, 15 for the books and five for the shipping, essentially, which is still a good deal but I want to be able to stay current on my books and this blog.
I’m letting ya’ll know in case there will be months where I’ll not be getting weekly shipments but I should be able to know soon.
I do like the idea of having my comics come straight to me, so that will be a treat. If only they had back issues, I would slowly try to chip away my wishlist by adding to my order until I hit $40 each month but also, it will be nice those months when I’m under budget.
I’m really excited about this and will let you know come May how it all works out.
I’m going to wait to use the Uncanny X-Cast code word for when I need it, hopefully that plan works. Have to be a little sneaky in that regard.
The one draw back I see is that, ordering the comics early, I am taking a chance that Kitty might not be in an issue and then I will have to add it to my Lonestar Comics sell pile instead of just leaving it behind at the store – so even that isn’t an issue.
Then it’ll be on me to actually sell those comics but that’s a whole other problem but not a real problem. Ever ship a small comic book worth of comics through UPS? Its like twenty six dollars, and that’s business to business shipping, its crazy! If you can get the number to just under sixty comics, they will fill a medium flat rate box through the United States Postal Service (USPS) and that’s $13 but then its through the post office but one of these days, I have to try that.
Future is looking bright!
