Wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for running such a streamlined and honest auction. This is the second time I've taken advantage of that service, but once again, from grading to delivery and everything in between, it couldn't have be better! And your shipping department did a stellar packing job, as usual! Thanks again for all you do.
— Steve B., Pueblo West, CO
I am a comic collector of 30 years. I have been dealing with your company for many of those years, mostly buying great comics, but I have also done some selling to you. I have really enjoyed the experiences.
— Jeremy J., Santa Paula, CA
My good friend's stepdad hired me to sell his collection of nearly 5,000 Marvel comics from 1967-1991. It's a huge task that had me feeling overwhelmed, that is until I spoke with Trey on the phone. I love the business model you guys have going and I look forward to making this happen with you!
— Alexander W., San Carlos, CA
I love how easy (and fun!) you make it to sell my comics!
— Keith E., Glen Ellyn, IL
Your consignment rates beat everyone. 8% for $300 and up is why I consign with you.
— Shaheed A., Woodhaven, NY
I brought my collection in to you last year. You offered to buy the whole collection, but I decided to sell some myself on eBay. It is way too much trouble, so I have decided to sell them to you as they show up on your want list.
— Mike S., Nacona, TX
Although this is my first effort selling comics to MyComicShop.com, I've been a frequent customer of your wonderful site for the past 14 months. I order comics from MyComicShop at least once a week and have been consistently happy with the experience. I presently own 2,100+ comics, trades, and omnibuses and am always looking to expand my collection.
— Stephen A., Katy, TX
Just wanted to thank you again for a terrific selling experience. After holding on to my collection for 50 years, it wasn't easy to part with it. But I was in good hands with My Comic Shop and Buddy. I wouldn't want to sell my comics anywhere else. I was treated professionally from start to finish and received a very fair payment in record time. Whether selling or buying comics, it is clear that My Comic Shop is a first class act and one you can feel confident in following.
— John U., Rockford, IL
As a dedicated collector since the late 70s, now curating a private collection with thousands of sought-after items, I can say with absolute certainty that there is no better friend of the comic buyer, seller or collector than Lone Star Comics. Buddy Saunders has truly reduced this maddening world to a precise science, from both the standpoint of dealers and collectors. They do it all, and do it all with amazing results. Whether buying or selling, Lone Star stands alone as the flagship of the industry as a whole: Grading, pricing, selection, ease of ordering, delivery, and customer service, they provide these things on every front in an almost supernatural fashion, guaranteed to please. If you're looking for a particular item, or a reliable source for your ongoing collecting or selling needs, forget the uncertainty of eBay or Amazon and go with the proven source of quality - go with Lone Star Comics, go with mycomicshop.com!
— Steve B., Pueblo West, CO
Hi Buddy, I truly appreciate your making this transaction so very painless (and seamless)! You and your buying partner Phil made it so easy. Near the end, Phil and I were chatting like old buddies although we had just met. We talked mostly about comics. It was a pleasure to meet him. Phil is a real nice guy and a true professional. I'll love to take you up on your invitation (especially the tour of Lone Star Comics if I am ever in Dallas), and we'd like to extend a reciprocal invitation if you are ever in the beautiful south Orange County--as one comic fan to another. Thanks again for making this transaction so easy. In the meantime, I'll continue reading your (and Odinson's) extremely informative weekly blogs/emails. Here's to many more happy years of reading comics! Thanks again.
— Rajiv A., Laguna Hills, CA
Thank you Buddy! You gave us a really fair deal for my 450+ 1940-50s comic collection. I am grateful for opportunity of having to work with you. I've enjoyed learning truly amazing things. I have come to respect and appreciate the history of my comics, along with every aspect of their preservation. I'm glad to have this new found appreciation for them.
I also have to thank you, kind sir, for having integrity when it comes to this business. Before talking to you, I was taken aback by the unpleasant experience I had with another would be buyer. Your mild manner, calm, and friendly character was reassuring. And I appreciate your encouraging me to seek other offers to compare to your offer. But in the end, I was blessed with you offer, the top offer by far. I'm glad that our paths crossed, and I really, truly pray for your business to continue thriving for years to come. Mahalo nui loa (deepest Thank You).
— Kristal A., Kaneohe, HI
I began collecting comic books in my hometown of Hilo, Hawaii, in July '72 when I was 10 years old and shortly thereafter I subscribed to the Comic Buyer's Guide. I repeatedly bought comics from you as you were probably the most reasonable dealer around. The fact that you're still around really warms my heart, as I have such fond memories of getting back issues mailed to me, which opened up a whole new world with some of the great comic books I'd missed. I hope you are well and I am so glad you're still in business. It's nice to know some things haven't changed. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you now? I'm 55 & living in the Los Angeles area. Thanks so much! (Buddy is 70!)
— Guy A., Los Angeles, CA
Buddy, I want to thank you so much for the great experience I had in my transaction with you and your company. I was honored with the personal attention you gave me in all the phone calls leading up to the sale. I was really sorry that you had to be out of town on the day I was there, but everyone at your place made us feel so welcome. I could say "went out of their way" to make us feel welcome, but I'm pretty sure they treat everyone like that all the time. A great group of folks you have assembled.
Your wife is such a treasure. She came to the break room to personally greet us, buy us a drink, and then took time from her busy schedule to give us a tour. I was a little wound up from the trip down and the whole experience of selling my stuff, so spending time with her was a perfect way to help me unwind. Please thank her for me for the personal attention she gave to my wife and myself.
I was disappointed that you were in Florida the day I arrived, but you certainly left me in extremely capable hands. Este was great. Your crew got those 58 boxes out of that hotbox trailer. I was so impressed with Este. She has the knowledge and skill to quickly evaluate the varied collection that I brought to you. I'm sure she handles every transaction that way, but she made me feel special, and I want to say "Thank You" to her.
Also, I want to make mention of your website. When I made the decision to sell my collection, I looked at several sites on the internet. Your site is the absolute best by far. No one else was even close. In talking to your wife, she told us that your son was responsible for your site. I'm sure you're very proud of him, and you have every right.
In closing, thank you for everything. Selling a collection that I started as a young boy over 50 years ago was a little tough. So many memories wrapped up in those items. But you and your folks made the process easier than I would have imagined, and I know that my stuff is in very capable hands.
— Tom B., Effingham, IL
All of you have been fantastic! Thank you so much for everything that you do at webuycomics.com. I've been so in the dark about selling all of these comics until someone told me about you. I'm so thankful!
— Lindsey L., Bushnell, FL
Hello to whoever reads this. This comic collection is mostly from my deceased father-in-law from his decades of collecting. I've entered so many comics into your system over the last few days that my head is spinning. Every phone call I've made with questions for your staff have been answered by such kind people. Thank you so much for everything that you are doing with this company. I really feel confident selling to you. Nobody ever made me feel like my questions were stupid and everyone walked me through everything step-by-step. Thank you all and have an amazing day!
— Lindsey L., Bushnell, FL
I just wanted to write to say thank you to Buddy and the entire Lone Star Comics team for our recent transaction. My father had recently passed away, leaving my brother and me with a large comic collection amassed over 50 years (almost 100 long boxes). The situation left us in a bit of a bind since both of us lived states away. We were needing to clear his house quickly, and neither of us had the time or emotional energy to sell everything (individually or by box), nor did either of us have the physical space to hold onto it. We thought we would end up having to throw a lot of it away, which was a terribly depressing thought. But a call to Buddy turned things around for us. Buddy was very gracious and beyond helpful, offering to buy not only the whole collection of comics, but also the boxes and boxes of trade paperbacks and hardcover collections we had been left with. In the end, Buddy gave us a very fair price for the whole collection (more than we initially expected) and his competent crew flew out to the house in Tennessee and carted everything off in just under two hours. Because of this company's professionalism and expertise, we were able to have some peace of mind about a once-stressful situation, which also allowed us to devote time to wrap up other matters of our father's estate. Having such a great and painless experience with you and your team during this trying time made all the difference, so thank you Buddy!
— Kurt W., Chattanooga, TN
I just wanted to say that I am pretty new to comics. I recently purchased three issues of a title at my local comic store, but they didn't have the rest. They recommended your website so I gave you a try. Not only did I find what I was looking for, but I received an email every time something progressed with my order. The estimated time was 3-10 business days for delivery. My comics were here in two. Thank you for making a new comic reader feel important in the scheme of the universe and, in this simple standard procedure of ordering from you, keeping a new comic reader more enthused to read than ever. Good on ya.
— Matt N., Facebook, Comment
Thanks for a wonderful experience with my comic book sales to you. Not very often you call a business and they connect you to the owner/CEO without hesitation! It was fun talking to you and learning a bit about your love of comics. Thanks for your prompt responses and kindness.
— Bill H., Duluth, GA
How fitting that I would purchase such a tremendous high-grade copy of this comic book - cover art & story featuring both my favorite Marvel superhero (Peter Parker/Spider Man) and favorite Marvel "pin-up" (the magnificent Mary Jane Watson)- from *Lone Star Comics*. As a teenager and eventually a summa-cum-laude graduate of Arlington High School in the 1980s, I was a regular customer at your flagship store on weekends every month - and sometimes every week - as I bought current-issue favorites and select back issues while occasionally casting a curious eye at the (pre-CGC) high-grade wonders lined up along the back wall behind the counter. Both my family and friends joined me in so many of these exciting visits! With heartfelt gratitude.
— Brent R., Tucson, AZ
Buddy, We are doing well with the Apple Valley Collection. You must have had one heck of a Christmas sale period. I am getting more stuff shipped out to you. The seller had a lot of the treasury editions in great shape. Sending those out to you this morning. After doing a hard count, we bought 30,000 comics in our joint buy. That does not include all the Doctor Who stuff. My daughter is home from her world trip and is helping me pull together some W-transactions as well side. My inventory is growing as I keep picking up small transactions on top of the buying opportunities you send me. A good problem for us both. Hope you saw Rogue One; it was fun to say the least. (Phil is a Mycomicshop Buying Partner)
— Phil H., Corona, CA
I LOVE ordering from your company. Mycomicshop has become my go-to for comic book purchases (This is my 8 or 9th time ordering from you). You are exceeding expectations when it comes to online retail. I really appreciate that you take the time to scan each cover, which must be very laborious given the impressive size of your inventory. It makes it more transparent when you're searching for individual issues, variant covers or just want a briefing of what the art style looks like first. The search option makes it so easy to find what you're looking for. I can search by artist or title and there's an advanced option too (which I've never needed to use, but it's very thorough). The delivery parcels: "Nuke proof" is right! The packaging you conduct has a level of preservation that has yet to be rivaled. I've never had any issues with delivery, but admire the fact there is an actual phone number I can call and speak to a real live human being should anything arise. The package has consistently arrived at (or sometimes even before) the date estimated. It is clear you have a dedicated team employed who are enthusiastic about what you sell. I wish you much continued success with your business in the new year. Warmest regards.
— Jono D., Montreal, Canada
Here's a little something I'd like to share with the Lone Star Comics universe. As you know, I'm a true believer when it comes to your online buy/sell/trade system. Over the years I have sold or traded tens of thousands of comics and books to you via that system. Anyway, I currently have approximately 5,000 comics entered into my pool of comics in your system. Here's the cool part. Each morning when I wake up, I have approximately $50 of comics that you are currently ready to take off my hands. These are not huge dollar books individually (I'm mostly talking about dollar books here), but do the math. If I print out a pick list every morning before going to work, I'm looking at an average of approximately $300 a week of extra cash! Not bad for what amounts to a passive investment. If I got my pool up to 10,000 books I could probably double that amount! I urge everybody reading this to take advantage of this EZ Money opportunity. It's a perfect partnership. I input books in my pool at my leisure knowing that your system will fill up my cart every night while I'm asleep. So what are you waiting for? Start entering those books now!
— Howard M., Cranford, NJ
I still have over 1,300 comics to go thru and catalogue on your AWESOME website! I was so excited when I found your site and saw how easy you make it for me to sell my comics to you. Thank you!
— Donna K., Gilbertsville, PA
You guys are the best! My father has been collecting since he was a child and it's great to be able to get back issues from you guys to flesh out his collection. The prices and packaging are top notch. I don't buy my comics anywhere else since I found MyComicShop. Keep up the good work and happy holidays.
— Logan C., Fountain Valley, CA
As a long time comic book reader/collector I am furious that I did not find this website sooner. This website has made searching and buying comics that I need simple. I have been searching online and in stores for the complete Maximum Carnage series and every source I've found has been ridiculously overpriced and just pile on that money with outrageous shipping prices. I was able to find the entire collection that I wanted in literally under 3 minutes at a totally reasonable price. I could not be happier with the service that mycomicshop has provided me. Thank you.
— James C., Mississauga, Canada
Just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you.
For the last two weekends I have been dealing with your local rep, Phil H. Having worked at a comic book store back in the UK, I was a little worried about how I'd be treated, whether or not I would get a fair price for my collection, etc. The people I worked for were sharks and I was worried about the treatment I would receive.
But I have to say that Phil was a total joy to deal with. He was fun, personable, and really made me feel at ease. I explained something of my situation to him, why I was selling, and he made sure that I was treated fairly and got a good price.
He always had a smile on his face, or a fun story to tell about life or other collections he's been to view or had purchased for you, and this week he went above and beyond. Arriving right on time with a U-Haul despite a personal crisis the night before when he and his wife had been in a scary car accident.
Phil was completely professional and so easy to deal with. He kept communication up so I was never in doubt about anything and he made three trips to the house to move my collection.
Whatever you're paying this man, he deserves a raise.
I would not hesitate to tell anyone that the whole experience was great from start to finish and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company to anyone else wishing to sell their collection. And a lot of that was down to Phil.
Thanks for being there in my time of need. And thank you for treating me fairly.
Take care of Phil, he is a great ambassador for your company.
— Ian T., Apple Valley, CA
Buddy, I have sold a lot of comics over the last 25 years. Some I sold too soon and some my timing was just right. I have found I am so much ahead by selling my groups of comics to you that I don't even consider selling online or locally anymore. My experience selling on eBay has been a nightmare. The fees that are charged are too high and keep going up. Not to mention the PayPal fees. I could live with all that except that eBay treats the buyers like they walk on water and the sellers like they are criminals. I sold an expensive comic online and the buyer wanted to return it, but when he did, he sent me back a different copy that was in poor condition. eBay still found in his favor and gave him his money back. Long story short is this, when I send a batch of comics to you I know I am going to get a fair price, I will not pay any commission, and I will not be left with bad feedback. The thing I like the most is when I get a personal phone call from you to make sure I am OK with your offer for my comics. Not just some cold email message. You have taken the pain out of selling vintage comic books. For myself and many collectors, the enjoyment is in the hunt for them and to swap them as we often can't afford to keep them all. Thanks again for all you and your people do.
— Rick B., Detroit Lakes, MN
I have been using your site for many years to keep track of the holes to fill in my collection. This is my 3rd time selling comics to you guys and I'm very excited. A friend of mine was moving and wanted to unload some comics. I took them off his hands. I'm very glad that I can now trade them in to get things I've been holding off on. I know your team is incredibly fair and there isn't anyone else I'd rather these go to!
— Brandy K., Indianapolis, IN
I just wanted to thank you for your generosity. You made selling my complete Sliver Age Marvel collection a little less painful. I thought that those books would stay with me my whole life. It was great to see that despite the business aspects of your company, the comic book fan was still alive and well in you. I found my sale to you to be very profitable. I hope that the deal turns out to be very profitable for you also, Buddy.
— George R., San Antonio, TX
I have been a collector for over 30 years and have enjoyed your company since I was a child. I will always buy and sell to you and trust your prices and grading.
— John C., Arvada, CO
In my 15 plus years as a mild-mannered custom packaging distributor, I have seen, sold, evaluated, educated, participated in the design and execution of more packaging solutions than the entire variant cover output of Marvel and DC combined. I regularly deal with packaging engineers (yes you can go to college for that so keep up those SAT scores).
I am proud to say about 12 years ago I was instrumental in introducing Padpack, the crumpled brown paper you see when you open your latest shipment of comic book goodness. Not only was this is an improvement over packing peanuts, it also braced and cushioned the contents of the box, i.e. your comics. Your inside the box packaging has continued to evolve over the years, with the most recent iteration utilizing those terrific black foam bumper corners that you, Buddy, designed and had manufactured yourself. With all comics now being shipped bagged and boarded, these incredibly versatile new corners are terrific. I'll forgo any further industry jargon and cut to the chase: Your industry unique custom packaging insures that we all get our comics in the same condition as they were sent from Texas! Congrats on yet another Lone Star Comics innovation!
— Howard M., Cranford, NJ
I wanted to let you know that I've received around 200 packages from Mycomicshop using the new packing procedures. I have not had a single damage. Using the old methods, I would typically see one to three boxes with a dinged corner have damaged books inside. Sure not seeing that now.
— Anthony B., Harker Heights, TX
As the curator of an ever-growing private collection of over 40,000 comics and monster magazines, I have to tell you that your grading is second-to-none. Condition is essential to this collection, as nothing below a grade of Fine (6.0) EVER gets in.
While grading tends to be subjective and arbitrary - including within CGC guidelines for "slabbed" comics and magazines, to the chagrin, I'm sure, of the "true believers" of CGC certified issues - MyComicShop.com consistently assigns grades which err on the side of caution.
In my experience, this has held true for both the everyday stock as well as the auction offerings. There simply is no other source I look to that is as trusted and reliable - from the grading to the prices and stellar packaging/shipping. Between the on-line shops and brick-and-mortar stores across the US and Canada and beyond, there are literally thousands of sources for comics - and MyComicShop.com beats them all where it matters to the discriminating collector - in quality and price and reliability.
Great job, folks! Keep on keeping on!
— Steve B., Pueblo West, CO
I have a few out of print gems to part with. Trading with you guys is such a pleasant alternative to the drudgery that dealing on eBay can be and the fee-laden ridiculousness that Amazon has become. As always, a hearty thanks to you all!
— Brett G., Milwaukee, WI
Buddy, I've been buying and selling with Lone Star for a few year, now, but I still had no idea how valuable your services could be until I was recently offered some comics from a local collector looking to get rid of them. Thanks to your submission system (I've never seen anything else that could compare) I could find out in advance about what you'd pay me for said comics. Then I was able to make a reasonable offer to HIM for his collection - and MY offer to HIM was about 3 times what a local comic dealer had apparently offered, and even lower than the amount you offered me! Without too much confusion, he trusted me with the books, I packed them up, and sent them to you. You sent me a wonderful check. I then paid the collector as promised. EVERYBODY made money on the deal. I know I was happy, and he was ecstatic to get my offer after talking with the local dealer, and I hope you guys will make money as well. And with your very fast turnaround time, everyone got paid very quickly! No one should hesitate to work with Lone Star Comics for the quickest, easiest, and most lucrative comic book deals available!
— Gary M., Huntington, WV
I'm really excited about selling to you guys and I'm also looking forward to seeing how some of my other comics do in your auctions. This is only my second submission to you guys for sale/trade (my first should arrive tomorrow), but your quick responses and your easy to use website made the past week the most fun I've had selling comics in two years! Thanks in advance for your time.
— Sean H., Baton Rouge, LA
This is my second time dealing with you. The first was after my husband passed away and I found his childhood comics. I was very pleased with your company and the level of service and friendliness I received, so I thought of you again when I found a few more comics that I missed selling the first time. Thank you for making this a very easy way to deal with something that is unfamiliar to me.
— Laurie C., East Aurora, NY
I am sending some of my older X-Men this time, some really beat up and others not as much. While I am by no means a master grader, I trust your judgment when you grade. You have always been fair to me and it is a complete pleasure sending books to you.
— Frances L., Manchester, NH
Thank you so much for your prompt payment and notification. I have never experienced such excellent customer service with online transactions such as this. You are very professional. When I first spoke to you it made me feel confident to deal with Lone Star Comics. I look forward to doing more business.
— Jason D., Fresh Meadows, NY
I just wanted to say thank you for purchasing my comics via your online system. I tried my hand at grading and severely underestimated the value of the comics. When your people graded them, you gave them a higher grade so you ended up paying me double what I originally expected. This shows true integrity on your part. I will gladly recommend you to anyone else who asks.
— Mark D., Ellendale, MN
I have been a longtime loyal customer purchasing pre-orders, back-issues, supplies, consignments and auction items. I have also auctioned lots and graded items through your auctions and commissions. I'm a big fan of MyComicShop. We recently moved, and our new place is much too small for my horde of comics so I want to start paring down my collection. So it is with much reluctance I part with my doubles and triples plus those I simply do not actively collect/read anymore. On the bright side, it frees up dollars and space to purse the purchase and collection of those comics I still actively collect and read :)
— Kirk D., New Wilmington, PA
I am currently selling through you guys (consignment) and loving it. GREAT website. Very loyal fan and customer. Keep up the great work!
— Karl W., Calgary, Canada
I just want to say thank you. I love doing business with you guys, whether I'm buying or selling. You all do a fantastic job!
— Frank R., Drien, CT
I just have to tell you, as a collector who loves to clean house every once in a while (to make room for the new - especially after the holidays), there's no one else I'd rather do business with! While compiling this most recent trade, I compared sold items on eBay and Amazon and couldn't be more pleased with the fair offerings y'all present with this awesome system. Thanks again for the opportunity to do business with you!
— Brett G., Milwaukee, WI
Love comics, love your website! Thanks for always being so great to deal with!
— Jonah S., Farmington, UT
Hi Buddy, First off, I would like to personally thank you for offering the most awesome online comic shop I've ever seen! I've bought loads of here-and-there issues from you over the years, always at great prices and then-some! In reference to selling some of my comics, I just sent a batch out to you moments ago. I am confident of your grading policy. Beyond my own experience, I have heard more than enough fair commentary upon your judgment. Thanks a million, again, Buddy. Your store is my mecca!
— John F., Ewing, NJ
After I declined the offer initially, you guys were nice enough to pull what I sent in, go over the reasons why my books received the grades they did, and reset my transaction so I could go back and approve the offer. Thank you for your help. The customer service I have received from you in the last few weeks since I've been using your site is even better than Amazon. I appreciate you guys!
— Ryan S., Kansas City, MO
I have been a comics fan since early childhood. Recently I became interested in comics from that era '90s. I am filling in some gaps in my original collection and am purchasing titles I missed out on from that period. I have always enjoyed comics for their content more than their collection value, i.e., mint condition was not and is still not a big deal to me. But I have always kept my comics bagged and boarded so they would last. I'm glad I did, as I have some titles that I am no longer interested in can be traded to you for other titles I do want. I wish my local shop would do this, but they are not interested in any titles I have. Your online trading system is a great opportunity and I am glad you guys do this!
— Sam L., Sioux City, IA
I have been collecting since a child. These were all purchased new except for about six comics. They were read once, sealed in protective plastic, and placed in my closet. They have never seen sunlight. I have already sold all my low value comics to you and I am now down to the big dogs. I appreciate your helping me along in the process. I look forward to us both making a lot of money! I need to get these to you a.s.a.p. for your July auction!
— Travis B., Mount Gilead, OH
I was turned on to comics in the '60s when my dad and I went to his barbershop. I stopped reading them in high school and during my marriage. Recently, I had to take over my parents house and found my comics that I thought my mom had thrown away. I remember Mr. Saunders way back because of his ads, fanzines, and the Comic Buyers Guide. Seeing my comics again brought back a lot of memories. Then I found your website. I am thankful to have a good place to sell my old treasures and am thus looking forward to doing business with you. Be patient with me cuz I am a little rusty on my grading.
— Ken L., Seattle, WA
