ATTENTION CALIFORNIA CUSTOMERS: We must charge you
California Sales Tax. Please do not pay at the time of purchase: instead, request an invoice from us, and we'll
send you the correct total. Goofy Comics #44, Standard 1951 Fine- n/c G/S n/c
Who? 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.) 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): as far as we're concerned, that's a
Communication: Internet sales are important to us, but we are primarily a physical bookstore, and we work roughly 11 am to 6 pm Pacific time. You may hear from us at other hours, but don't count on it. Even though the store is open seven days a week, the people who do our online
sales don't work every day, especially on weekends.This means that if you place a Best Offer on Friday evening, we probably won't see it before it expires on Sunday (they really ought to last more than two days...) We’ll try to answer inquiries within three
Pricing: Our prices are based on the Overstreet Price Guide for regular comics, and the Fogel Price Guide for undergrounds. We often depart from their prices, but they're the baseline.
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.
Additionally, between fees paid to ebay and PayPal, we never see approximately
15% of what you pay. These fees are far too high, and we have no control or influence over them. Sellers on eBay pay all of
eBay's expenses, unlike the situation with legitimate auction houses,
where the buyer pays fees as well as the seller doing so. 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.
So, we're happy to entertain realistic Best Offers. But please don't waste your time (and ours) with an offer of less than half of what we're asking-- we won't bother to make a counter-offer unless we think there's some common ground for an agreed-on price.We're in no hurry to sell any particular item.
.Shipping: Shipping will be by USPS Priority Mail, insurance included, unless other
arrangements are made. We will combine multiple purchases for one
shipping charge, even if you don’t ask.
Signature required on delivery unless otherwise requested. Allow 2-3 business
days after we actually receive payment in our bank account before shipping: this can be as long as a week after you make the payment.
Feedback: Since eBay doesn't permit sellers to post negative feedback for buyers, we consider posting positive feedback to be pretty pointless (100% positive feedback? Wow! Oh, there's no such thing as negative feedback for buyers? Not so impressive then, is it?) We only do it 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. So 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.
We encourage free store pickups (and shopping, of course: all items
listed here are available in the store, as well as tens of thousands of
Feel free to phone us with requests: we
have tens of thousands of items for sale, many of which will eventually be
listed here, but if we know you’re looking for it and we can find it in our stock, we can post it sooner
on ebay for you to buy,
