And Where do you Get Yours?

I am wondering where everyone gets their books? Online ordering? Off to the bookstore every Wednesday? Other versions of the bookstore? I go to Matt's in Enfield, Connecticut every Wednesday (blessed, blessed Wednesday) and enjoy myself thoroughly. I'm a regular, and hardly anyone stares at me anymore. It's light, bright, and has something for everyone. If I don't find something, he offers to get it for me.

So, I put it to you all. Where do YOU get your books?

I have a pull list at Forbidden Planet here in NYC, so that's where I get 'em, once a week, usually on Wednesday.

Ultimate Heroes in Edmond,OK. I drive about 15 miles one way because George is such a great guy. There's a comic store about 6 miles but the guys an ass.

I'll drive for quality & service

Every week I take a trip to Comics Ink in Los Angeles (well... Culver City, technically). All the guys there are friendly and knowledgeable. The best part is that they have multiple back issues lined up behind the current release before they bag, board and box them. It's nice when you can be a little late to a comic and still be able to get all the issues for cover price.

The Great Escape in Nashville Tennessee. They actually deal in everything that interests me: new comics, back issues, trades (some used -- got all 9 volumes of the most recent Green Arrow series for cheap recently), toys new and used, used movies, used music, used video games, original art, random junk (glasses, movie posters, pop art, trading cards)... you just never know what you're going to find there.

My only complaint, if you can even call it a complaint, is that because they deal in so many things and are so busy, I don't get the personal service I got at the store where I used to live. But boy, the cool stuff I've picked up at that store!

For the past 5 years I've gone to Collosal Comics in New Port Richey, FL. They are a 30-45 minute drive from me, which stinks as gas prices go up (I limit it to a trip every other week), but they are really the closest shop to me.

They are also really great to me, so I can't complain. They have given me a ton of free stuff over the years from single issues to get me to try a title, to comics and small toys for my kids.

It really does make a difference when the people running the store make an attempt to be friendly and helpful, doesn't it?

I like the human interaction, which is nice. I also have a pull list, so at least I know that I'll always get my books.

Comic Carnival, which is a local comic book chain that has several locations around Indianapolis, Indiana. I've been getting my comics there since I was 14 years old, so they've been around a LONG time. ;-)

Hope you and yours had a great 4th, Sally!

You too, Sea! It's nice when a comic book store has a bit of longevity, it makes you feel a little more secure, I suppose. I know for a while there, a LOT Of books tores went belly up.

The Comic Book Shop in Spokane, WA. All kinds of awesome. I'm usually a once a week guy.

Most of mine are ordered from Mile High Comics out in Denver. I started ordering from them when I was stationed at Ft Hood back in ’89. As I was often in the field it just made sense to go “online” back then.

Now, in addition to MHC, I have a 15 book pull list to support the local folks at Capital Comics in Raleigh, NC.

I used to get tons of back issues from Mile High, way back when. Then I would wait hungrily for the UPS man.
