Very Good + n/c Strips
PLEASE READ ALL THIS STUFF:
Escapist Comics is a new store, located in Berkeley, CA. Our staff has many decades of collective experience. Our principal grader has been collecting comics since 1958, and selling them since the early 1970s.
100% customer satisfaction is guaranteed on all sales. If for any reason you're unhappy with the service or the product you purchase, let us know and we'll find a way to make it right. If a purchaser is dissatisfied with condition, we will accept returns without question.
Grading: We use Overstreet Price Guide grading criteria and descriptive grades (e.g. Fair, Good, Very Good, Fine, Very Fine, Near Mint, and their intermediate grades.) We do not use the numerical grades popularized by the slabbing companies, which give the false impression that grading comics is a science. So please don't ask us if something is a "9.6" (or any other number), since as far as we're concerned, that's a meaningless question.
Images: Images in these listings are scans of the actual books listed, not stock images.
Selling online is not our only avenue for this merchandise, so we're not desperate to sell it here. While bargains can often be found among our listings, we're not in the discounting business--in general, we think that the Guide price for older books is usually fair and reasonable, and we often offer prices lower than that anyway.
eBay and PayPal between them take approximately 15% of what you pay us. We have no control or influence over these fees, which we consider to be too high.
Unlike the practice at legitimate auction houses, where the buyer pays fees as well as the seller doing so, sellers on eBay pay all of the system's expenses.
This, from our point of view, means that simply by listing an item here, we are already selling it at a discount, and you're already getting a deal
Lots and Sets: Our general pricing policy notwithstanding, we offer a number of lots and sets of comics at drastically reduced prices. One reason their prices are low is that selling this way involves less labor for us. Please don't request separate scans or information about individual issues in these lots--if we were going to do that, we'd be asking more for them in the first place. They're cheap largely because they're easy for us to handle the way we do--more labor equals more money.
Best Offers: We may be open to negotiation on prices on some items.
However, many of the items we list are on consignment, which limits our ability
to make deals.
Shipping: We usually ship twice a week.
Shipping will be by USPS Priority Mail, insurance included, unless other arrangements are made. Signature required on delivery unless otherwise requested. First Class Mail is also available. If you ask us to use Media Mail, you do so at your risk, not ours.
We will combine multiple purchases for one shipping charge, even if you don’t ask.
Allow 3-5 business days (business days means not counting weekends) after we actually receive the money in our bank account before shipping -- this can be a week or more after you first make the payment.
International customers should be aware that tracking is not available for their shipments, and that it is not unusual for a package to take six weeks or longer to reach an overseas customer.
Shortages: As I said above, we are an actual, physical bookstore. All the items listed here, and hundreds of boxes more, are for sale in the shop. People are looking through those boxes constantly. Occasionally books listed here may be either misfiled (usually by customers who were examining them), or--less often--sold in the store and inadvertently not deleted from eBay. If we are unable to fill your order because of this (that is, if we've already sold a book, or if we can't find it), we'll issue an immediate refund with our apologies, and offer you free shipping on your next US order.
Feedback: Since eBay doesn't permit sellers to post negative feedback for buyers, we consider posting positive feedback to be pretty pointless (a buyer with 100% positive feedback? Wow! Oh, there's no such thing as negative feedback for buyers? Not so impressive.) So we only post feedback when a buyer with whom we've had a good experience requests it. In that case we're quite happy to do so, though we still don't get the point. If we haven't given you feedback, we don't dislike you, and we haven't forgotten to do it either -- just ask and you shall receive.
If you have any complaints or problems with our products or service, we ask that you let us try to make it up to you before posting feedback. We make mistakes like anyone else, but we try to correct them to our customers' satisfaction. We have to know about a problem, though, before we can fix it.
We encourage free store pickups (and in-store shopping, of course: all items
listed here are available in the store, along with tens of thousands of
