Subscription Service / Special Order Terms & Policies

Comic Book Subscriptions:

Reading  & collecting comics is a fun hobby, but sometimes it’s hard keeping track of everything coming out. With a subscription from Comic City, you can control your list yourself, and have a better picture of what’s waiting in-store for you.

ONLINE PULL SYSTEM MANAGEMENT EFFECTIVE JUNE 1, 2020

Go to subscriptions to start your file. All pull files are for store pickup only, you must choose the local store for your books to be picked up from. 

COMICS RELEASE EVERY WEDNESDAY:  Register for a subscription and we will pull it on its release date and hold it for you behind the counter. There is no additional cost for this service.  This is a great way to ensure you get an entire series and don’t miss any issues.

NEW SUBSCRIPTIONS:  On boarding a new subscription typically takes 21 days (per typical publisher FOC Final Order Cut-off dates). Your subscription will start with the next orderable issue, which is not necessarily the next available issue. When you add a new subscription it will say “first pull” and indicate the date. We will attempt to start all subscriptions sooner, depending on available stock already ordered.

EASY ONLINE MANAGEMENT:  

Subscribe to comics, manage and view your subscriptions,  view your upcoming pulls all on our new subscription portal at ComicCity.com>Subscriptions

On the day of release you will receive an email listing what new comics have been put aside for you, so you can make plans to come into the store to pick them up.

PICKUP OF PULLED COMIC FILES: 

You can come into the store, and pickup and pay for your pulled books during regular hours on Wednesday through Sunday. If you do not pick them up during that period, on the Monday after release you will receive an invoice for any subscription books remaining in your file.

You can pay for your subscription through that online invoice and we will be glad to hold your books for a convenient pickup time. After 2 weekends of no payment, subscription files will be suspended with no additional pulls, and reshelved. There is a file reinstatement fee for closed files.

Subscription books are considered final sales. We place orders for and pay for this stock based on your request for the book. Our expectation is for you to honor your commitment to us, as we honor our commitment to you.

Away from town, or on vacation? Pay for your books through the invoice and we’ll gladly hold them for later pickup.

Extenuating circumstances, or other issues? Let us know. We’ll be glad to work with you, but can’t if we don’t know what’s going on.


Special Orders

VARIANTS– Ongoing subscriptions are only available for the first (Cover A) of any title. All other covers, B, C, D….. are considered special orders and must be specifically ordered. Through the process know as FOC (FInal Order Cutoff) we post weekly lists (Monday for DC, Friday for Marvel and others) of the books that are getting ready to go to print. Placing your orders there allows us to order the covers you want, specifically for you.

We do not accept special orders for ratio (incentive) variants. These items are typically offered in 1 in 10, 1 in 20, etc ratios in relation to the orders of regular covers.

These items, if received, are placed in stores on release, and sold on a first come first served basis at current market value.

EXISTING PULL CUSTOMERS:
