So the local (and by local I mean ONLY) comic shop in Panama City doesn't get everything in. And has NO older issues for those wanting to check out a title. So I'm looking into buying comics online.

Does anyone have a couple good sites they can recommend?

TGO buys a lot of his comic online. Well, basically everything he orders. He found a site that gives a good deal. I can't remember the name, though.

Not really for issues. I've bought from Mile High in the past and they were pretty good. I also recommended Comicopia in Boston a while ago.

Mycomicshop.com is a pretty decent back-issue site, much cheaper than mile high.

Oh!

Stupid me!

There's also www.midtowncomics.com

I think they're a good site to buy from online. You can also subscribe to them for comics via online. Like say, Ultimate Spider-Man for example.

Midtowns probably the best. 15% discounts on everything new, you can subscribe as well.

Mile High is good for backissues but can be veeeeery pricey at times.

Mail Order Comics!!!!!!

I order from Mail Order Comics, they offer 36% off on all their comics with a few up to 75% off. They offer weekly, every 2 weeks or monthly shipping. Shipping rates depend on what option you choose and how many comics you order. They also have a great customer service.

Like this past FCBD, I was not going to be able to go to a comic shop and pick up the free comics so I emailed MOC and told them which issues I wanted and they included them in my last package at no additional cost.

My brother-in-law uses Discount Comics. They do 40% off pretty much everything and monthly specials. This month they have Infitite Crisis HC for $12.49 (50% off).

Has anyone on this site besides me been to the actual store?

If so, PM me and tell me how you liked it.

S'why I love them.

I went to one of their store near Grand Central Station a couple years ago, bought lots of goodies. I even got Ultimate X-Men #15 which took me TWO YEARS (no joke) to find. And they had. $4.

Yeah....I can totally rest easy now. Ever since I got here I've been worried about showing up to the store and them not having what I want.

A few weeks ago I went to the store to get Nextwave#5....and he had 1 copy ordered. 1 copy. Only one person in Panama City was asking for Nextwave.

So I just ordered vol.1 of Fables and Ex Machina. I hear all the praises but never got into 'em. I hope I'm not disappointed.

You won't be with Ex Machina. Fables doesn't really get going till volume 2 though.
