Bubble not holding on by much, but she's still MOC. TPBs and other new and used PB books may have minor shelf wear and store/personal library stamps or pricing inside the cover...because the product you are looking at is overstock from the teeming depths of my "DUNGEON OF DOOM". (Seriously I think my Brick and Mortar's basement is haunted or something.) Or it might be from my "ATTIC OF HORRORS". (My house also might be haunted.) Possibly from the lesser well known "Shelves of Slight Discomfort" or even the obscure "Hall Closet of Partially Alarming Clutter". Either way your item is ordered, found, obtained, bought, photographed, cropped, uploaded, listed, shelved, picked, bagged, packed, labeled and shipped by one guy...me. I do all the emails, I do all the stunts and all the comedy. If you want multiple BIN, free ship items, give me a shout so I can make a special listing for you. The more you spend, the happier I am...the happier I am, the happier you are.
I pride myself on my expert ability to package and ship items safely. Most single comics & TPB books arrive in Stay-Flat tab lock cardboard envelopes. PBs in poly shipping sleeves. Depending on the availability, a larger item may arrive in a double taped new or used cardboard box with; air-bubbles, peanuts, padded mailers and packing paper. I do try to re-use as much packaging product as I can. I hope that you can help re-use some of it too.
I'm glad to take a return on any item I sell (even if you don't like the color of the box I shipped it in) but please be aware that I may not always pay return shipping. I might...but then again I might not. Any and all returns must be in like condition (sealed, shrink wrapped, unused etc...), insured with delivery confirmation and shipped same method received. Some items are sold as in the package collectibles, removing them from the packaging may suspend your buyer protection. Some returns will have any and all original shipping costs deducted before refunding and may have a restocking fee. Items damaged in the return process will be worked out through the insurance you purchased when you returned the item. If I find that I am at fault for damage or mis-shipment, I of course will take care of it.
Thinking of making a best offer? Well, I only entertain serious offers so don't bother with less than half. It is insulting and a waste of our time.
Can't buy my stuff? I don't take payment besides paypal unless you pick the item up in person. If you are blocked and you really must buy one of my items, send me a message.
Am I an idiot? Did I manage to misspell something even with spell checker on? Did I use the wrong picture? Item details from some other book showing up? Got a $4000 handling fee? Shipping set to Express for a 4oz item? Let me know, I'm just one guy and I list VERRRRY early in the morning and am happy to thank for the assist.
Thinking of asking me to alter a customs form? Yeah, don't. I'm not going to do that.
Need your item faster, like overnight? Want it shipped as a gift? Got a special packaging or delivery needs, like to a giftee? Do you just like asking pertinent questions to the task at hand? Fire away! Please note that I cannot mail your item to anywhere but the address(s) you have on file with ebay. If you have a giftee in mind, put their address into your profile and choose it when you checkout and do it BEFORE you buy it.
Problem with your order? Drop me a line. I'm happy and determined to help and make your sale right. I'm only one guy doing all this so every now and then I do make a mistake....only problem is, with one guy doing all the work there is no one left to catch the mistake except you.
Item damaged in the mail? You have 2 weeks to start a return, and it isn't a problem at all. To start, show me a picture. We may work it out through insurance or I may ask for a part to be mailed back, like a book cover or part of the box. No refunds are made until an item or partial item is returned.
Item go missing? Well...I have online view-able tracking on every package so just let me know and both of us can easily look into it. If it is a week or more outside of delivery then we should both call the USPS. It will dramatically increase the chances of shaking loose any stuck packages within the system.
Don't be offended if I file NPBs after two days. It isn't personal, just with the bulk I am handling, it is just easier to let ebay keep track of that. If you can't pay right away, it would be a good idea (and common courtesy) to ask if I mind before you buy. If you need a few extra days, I really don't mind at all. I do mind if you don't ask...and a week or more is a bit excessive.
Not sure what the item is that I am selling? (You'd be surprised how often that happens) This is a BIG hint that maybe you shouldn't just go and willy-nilly hit "Buy It Now". Look, I know I am not the most flowery of description writers. "This is the thing I have, it is in X condition.", is about as far as I go. If you are not sure what "shelf wear", "TPB", ding, VF or other common retail comic shop descriptive lingo terms mean....you might be a bit over your head and may need some help. Feel free to ask me anything, I'm your 20 years experience Nerd Prince expert. Please make your questions specific if you need more information and please...do your asking before you buy.
My handling time is 1 day, but most shipments go out in far less than 24 hours and some within minutes of paying. Feedback is usually left right after payment is made but some days I get busy ( I am at work doing most of this after all) and feedback has to wait until I can get to it. Every customer gets feedback.
Again, because this is important: I cannot ship to any address other than one you have on file with ebay and paypal. If you have special delivery needs, please, please, please, you have to tell me before you buy.
I buy, scarf, obtain, scrounge & hoard jigsaw puzzles by the HUNDREDS from church, garage, community sales and such...there is NO feasible way for me to count each and every one of them. If you buy a jigsaw puzzle and find there is a missing piece, please just let me know and I will be happy to take care of it. Just send me a picture of it almost completed. Consider each and every puzzle to be uncounted with a possibility of being incomplete but remember you are 100% covered by ebay, my return policy, my feedback and my promise to you.

Firm but fair. My ebay store is an outlet for overstock and treasure finds. I take it very seriously and commit to treat you just like I would any walk-in to my my brick and mortar shop. Most of the time that's a good thing!
