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.

We buy and sell a wide variety of items online, including comics. We have been in business since 2002. After a year of selling to Lone Star Comics online, we can unequivocally state that MCS is the best online buyer we have ever sold to...in any industry.
1) Their grading is strict but correct. Their buyers know they are getting a book whose quality matches the grade without question.
2) Integrity Integrity Integrity. We have personally followed comics we sold to MCS: MCS ALWAYS sold our comics at same grade they assigned when they bought them from us.
3) The customer service at MCS sets a standard to which all online companies should aim for:
• Emails are answered within 24 hours without exception.
• They have gone out of their way to honor special requests.
• They are patient and helpful even in the face of problems on our end.
• The graders are amazing...no matter how large the lot or when we send it, the turnaround time is short and consistent.
• ALWAYS professional. NEVER a negative attitude.
• Problems are fixed immediately.
• We have sold MCS Iron Man #1 one week and fifty low end modern comics the next. The treatment and service does not vary.
4) They offer fair and consistent prices. You will never feel gouged or low-balled.
5) Best consignment terms we have ever seen. We have calculated that it is more profitable to consign with and sell to MCS than it would be to sell our comics directly on eBay.
5) They regularly make improvements to the site and their processes.
If you run a consignment shop, or buy online study MCS
Keep up the good work, MCS!

I have recently started using Mycomicshop.com as my online dealer! I was chatting with my local comic book store owner(and good friend, he's the best), and I told him I was using another online shop, and he said, and I quote "No man, they are Rippers, use Mycomicshop instead." He was right! I have already made several purchases from you and couldn't be more pleased! This is my first trade-in for store credit with you, so forgive me if my grading skills are lacking. LOL! Thank you for your service! I look forward to doing business with you!
— Patrick B., Bastrop, LA
This collection belonged to my late husband and I sat on it for 8 years because I had no idea how to begin to sort and value the books. I called many dealers and they were all dismissive. Your people were pleasant and helpful. Your website database made listing the comics very fast and simple. It is an amazingly good website!
— Molly F., Milford, PA
Thanks, as always! I am always very grateful and humbled that you accept SO many books every week from me! The value I get back in trade far exceeds what I send in, in my opinion. Through the combination of trade credit, your already low prices, unparalleled selection, and codeword discount, I have read material that I couldn't have otherwise afforded. I have been able to branch out and discover whole new worlds! Thank you so much for broadening my reading horizons!
— Mike A., Edenton, NC
I sent over three more boxes of comics on Saturday and they should get there today. While I'm writing, I want to say that your consignment program is the best in the business. I have stopped using anyone else and send all my consignment books to your guys. You are always really pleasant and easy to deal with and the process is very smooth for sellers. As a result, I also do much of my purchasing from Mycomicshop because I trust you guys in every respect.
— Michael D., Peoria, AZ
Buddy, You have made a friend. I knew that Lone Star Comics was a bit different then other comic book shops I had dealt with in my years of collecting and selling books. When I got ill and decided to liquidate my retail stock, I looked around and checked around out there but found no other comic book store that even comes close to Lone Star! You have been a kind and gentle soul! I don't know you personally, but after talking with you several times, I could tell you were a man of high moral values! Thank you. Yes, as you noted, comics do become a part of your being. Whenever I stopped at yard sales up in Fort Wayne, the first thing I asked for was did they have any comics. I am sure I will never quit being a collector and a avid fan of comics. While I was recently hospitalized I read comics to pass the time! Lord willing and I am able to beat this illness I hope to land into the mother lode of old Golden and Silver Age comics in someone's attic! If I do and want to sell them, I know who to call! The burden that has been lifted off me knowing that I was able to get rid of around 20,000 comics in one transaction has lifted a lot of stress from my life! Thank you, friend!
— Guy P., Wabash, IN
Hi Buddy, Here's another batch I'm ready to sell. Thanks, as always. You and your team make MyComicShop a pleasure to deal with. Sustaining this level of customer service day in and day out is no easy feat. But everyone I meet there exhibits the same outstanding customer service. I always get great communication from folks who sound like they love being there. No fakeness and no lip service. Whatever you're feeding these kids is doing the job!
— Mark D., Santa Barbara, CA
This is a very long overdue thank you for buying my husband's Golden Age comic books back in December, 2012.
You and I met at the DFW Comic Books Show at the hotel at Hwy 360 and I-30 back on October 6, 2012. You were very gracious in coming to my car and reviewing a bag of "Strange Adventures," "Tales from the Crypt," and similar books my husband had since the 1940-50's. My husband also enjoyed meeting you that day and feeling like he had something in common with you from his past hobby. After your brief review of the bag of comics, you told us they all might be worth about $1,000 for the bag of about 100 books. That was amazing to both of us.
What personal service you provided, especially to this novice comics collector.
I brought three similar bags of comics to you right after Thanksgiving and met you and some of your staff at the Arlington office. Everyone was very helpful and kind. You said that in seven days that you would call back with an offer to me.
Just as you said, on the seventh day, you called and said I would be happy with your offer. You asked what I expected to receive, and having sold other items of clothing and furniture through consignment, I knew better than to say what I expected before the buyer says what he will pay. BUT, for some reason, I told you that we hoped for $1,000 per bag or $3,000. You could have settled on that amount right then over the phone, but instead, you said I would love the new amount of $5,560 that you were offering us. I was amazed! Not only with the offer, but with the integrity with which you do business.
In this day and age, not many people do business by "The Golden Rule" of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. But I can say with confidence and gratefulness that you most certainly do. We prayed blessings from God for you when we received the check and continue to pray each time we drive by your store on Abrams, which we do quite often. You are a beacon and example for all other dealers to emulate.
Thank you again, Buddy, for your honest and generous offer for our collection. Your kindness and integrity was so refreshing and we have told all of our friends to do business with you whenever possible. No wonder you are the No. 1 Comic Book internet site and have business from all over the world.
May God's favor and blessing continue to surround you all the days of your life.
— Sandy M., Arlington, TX
Hi Buddy, Thanks a lot. Your extra help is much appreciated. Once again you've gone above and beyond. Well played Sir, well played! Headed to storage for another day of pulling and packing books. I looked at my "queue" this morning and there is over $650.00 of want list books there. Ever since I put in the rest of my inventory it's been on fire. You guys are moving some books! I should submit that right now, so that I don't miss out.
— Mark D., Santa Barbara, CA
Hey guys! This the first time I've sold my comics to you, though I've been ordering from your site for over ten years now. You have the best selection, great prices, and I've always been pleased with my products once they arrive. I've spread the word through the years and now my friends order from you as well. If this transaction goes well, I will definitely be bringing my comics to you in the future. Thanks!
— Ben K., Vacaville, CA
I'm constantly on your site. Mostly looking for information about my 11k+ collection, issues I need to fill in holes, and good deals. Great website, great store. Thank you!
— Dave M., Lawton, OK
I have been an avid collector since 1972, but it has sadly become time to sell my comics and let others enjoy them. I must admit the most surprising and pleasant part of this journey has been discovering Lone Star Comics. I knew of Buddy and I had seen his ads in several publications over the years, but after contacting several companies, trying several websites, and reading hundreds of testimonials, I began recording my items into the Lone Star Comics database. I found your site to be a joy to navigate, and the recording process is simple and actually fun! Your site covers details that others never even consider. So here I am at this rather exciting yet sad crossroads of saying goodbye to my babies after 30 plus years. But I feel confident Lone Star is the best agent for the job. I look forward to a long and comfortable relationship!
— Carlton B., Springfield, MA
Buddy, I just wanted to take a moment and wish you and your staff a Happy New Year and to say thank you for the fantastic customer service that you offer on a daily basis. It's so very refreshing to deal with a company that takes customer service to heart when so many companies seem to take it or leave it. It is a privilege to do business with you, and I plan to do business with you for many years moving forward. Please pass my thanks and best wishes to all the wonderful people in your company. Thank you and Happy New Year.
— Marc M., Jackson, MO
Hello, My Comic Shop. I have been a collector of comics since, as my mom would say, I was "knee high to a grasshopper" (which I would say since I was 7). I have decided to sell some of my comics to you because after doing about a year of research, I believe your company is the best choice (excellent recommendations, straight forward negotiations, and higher prices paid). I look forward to your response and more business with you in the future.
— John C., Merritt Island, FL
Thanks again for the fair dealing and explaining everything in a polite and helpful manner. Your shop is top notch. I'll definitely recommend it to anyone looking to sell or buy comics.
— Paul M., Mountain View, CA
I always appreciate your suggestions on pricing. You've done a great job for me in the past. With your knowledge and experience you've suggested prices higher than what I was thinking...and they sold, so your suggestions make me extra money.
— Bob C., Medford, OR
I've been purchasing comics from mycomicshop.com for over a year. You are my favorite retailer. Best back-issue selection I've encountered. Comics always ship on time and arrive in the condition promised.
— Ryland K., Oradell, NJ
Happy 'Beginning of Fall' to Lone Star Comics. Here's my next batch of comics for trade. I've kept your staff busy the last couple of months with my comic trades and buys. I appreciate the hard work that Lone Star Comics does to help ensure that everything runs so smoothly - the quick note from Buddy to let me know my offer has been approved, the employee at the Ft. Worth store who happily takes my box of trade comics, the confirmation e-mail to let me know my lot has been received, Steve writing to inform me of impending payment or issued credit. Such a great system and great customer service! Thanks so much.
— Michael T., Fort Worth, Texas
Hi Matt, it really has been a pleasure consigning comics with you. You guys have been very professional and thorough and helpful. I could give a real ringing testimonial to the effectiveness and success of your consignment service.
— John P., Beloit, WI
I really enjoy your site. So far I've sold a bunch of "commons" and made two purchases. An interesting by-product of using your site is that it helps me hone my grading skills. This year I've been trying to objectively improve my grading. I recently purchased the Overstreet grading guide and want to master the art. While my primary goal is selling the raw comics in this transaction, my main drive for using your site is that it provides a check on my grading. So far it has been an absolute pleasure doing business with you. Keep up the good work.
— Dennis R., Catonsville, MD
I do my best to recommend you to any comic collectors I meet. The services you provide offering trade credit, wish list creation, auctions, store drop-off and pick-up, etc. make it very easy to be a returning customer. Thanks again for what you do.
— Michael T., Fort Worth, TX
I wanted to express my gratitude for the way my trade was handled. Even though there were some differences in my grading and yours, I never felt that I was treated unfairly ($265.31 value by my grading; $265.57 by your grading). I like the fact that I had the opportunity to get the books back you graded lower than me, although in this case I didn't use that option. The whole process was pretty simple. What surprised me most is the ease of recording the books. Your catalog system is easier to negotiate than other sites that are set up specifically for that (sites that charge fees). Anyway, I placed an order just now and it was nice to save some money in my bank account by using credit instead. Thank you for continuing to be the easiest online comic shop to buy from.
— Pat T., Helena, AL
Buddy, the pleasure is all mine. I can't count the number of times your staff have upgraded my submissions and paid a higher than anticipated price. All the kudos and testimonials from your many customers are right on the mark....you guys are a credit to not only comic collectors, but all businesses.
— Marty B., Monroe, OR
Merry Christmas Buddy!!! And a big thank you to everyone at Lone Star Comics for all their great work this year. It is a pleasure doing business with you and your staff. There is no place else I could have sold my comics as easily and for as much value as at Lone Star! Happy Holidays!
— Steve S., Newbury Park, CA
Mycomicshop.com has been an incredible service that I would highly recommend to comic collectors like myself. Your staff and service have been extraordinarily professional! Many thanks!
— Matt H., Martinsville, IN
Conan, you and your staff treated me so well--and sold my comics so painlessly--last time that I'm back for another round of consignments. Thanks in advance!
— Paul Y., Nashville, TN
Your site is fantastic, an outstanding tool for collectors and fans. Over the years, I collected the comics and graphic novels I loved, heroes I followed, or just stories I enjoyed reading. Some from my childhood collection is here, but sadly my mother sold most of my comics in a yard sale while I was away at camp many years ago. Some of the comics I'm offering for sale are from my wife's childhood collection. A knowledgeable friend helped me grade the books, but I trust your judgment. He was also the one who told me 20 years ago to store them in bags, for which I am very thankful! From all of the comments of former customers, I know you will be very fair. Thank you for the opportunity and your great site.
— Steve G., Carmel, IN
I love using your online system to sell comics because I feel like I have my own comic books store :-)
— Aaron G., Santa Monica, CA
Lone Star Comics always provides great service. Your comic buyers grade comics fairly and payments are hassle free, regardless of whether store credit or cash is requested. The consignment service allowed me to sell several comics that were older without the hassle of trying to grade them myself and sell on eBay or another site that has tons of fees attached. As for comic purchases, Lone Star Comics is simply the best, from ease of order, preferred customer discounts and great, safe packaging. Thanks a lot!
— Henry M., Milford, MA
I was not aware of the retraction option for sell/trade transactions. This is just one more reason why I continue to do business with you - selling, trading, and buying. I have been a loyal Lone Star Comic customer for over 30 years now and even though I no longer live in Texas, I have yet to find another comic store that offers what you all offer. In fact, I am readying another shipment of comics to send to you that should be leaving Colorado in the next 24 hours.
— Charles T., Louisville, CO
I might not write and say a lot about you guys, but this is the time I should and will. Over the past several years as I've dealt mostly with Buddy and Este, I've been continually impressed with the integrity and professionalism demonstrated. I've had dealings in the past with other retailers who unfortunately lived up to my skepticism, but Lone Star Comics is different. What you were able to accomplish for me confirms my "faith" in you all the way up and down the line. Again, Asher, my thanks and deep appreciation for your dedication to "fixing this problem."
— Len M., Natchez, MS
Hello, Lone Star Comics! I'm looking forward to doing more business with you in all ways: trading, selling, buying, and consigning! Here is my first batch for consignment. I love what you've been doing with your website. The Mycomicshop site is my favorite comic site of all. Thanks Buddy, and thank you Asher.
— Fred M., Holland, OH
Dear Conan and Lone Star Comic crew, Wow! I am very impressed with your consignment service. I got roughly the purchase prices I wanted for everything that has sold thus far (and probably could have gotten more for the Green Lantern #76 had I not chickened out and marked it down after a week!). Your team handled everything expertly, from the fair grading to the scans, the postings, and finally the payment. I don't know when I'll have such a slew of desirable books to sell again, but I'm certain I'll send them straight to you when I do. Thanks for everything. I'll look forward to the check!
— Paul Y., Nashville, TN
This is my 7th time selling stuff to you Lone Star Comics! At this point, you guys are the only place I sell my comics to. You all ways make me feel like a valued customer when I'm selling my comics. You guys never make me feel like my stuff is worthless junk. You make me feel like my stuff is valued and wanted. I'm always upgrading my collection, looking for higher condition comics. When I do, it's extremely nice to know I can sell my doubles for a reasonable price. In the past, when I've taken my dupes to a local comic shop, they tell me they can only give me 5 to 20 cents per comic because no one wants them, not even the key issue. You guys never do that to me. You have never low-balled me on anything. Rather, it's been the opposite. I've sent tons of comics to Lone Star Comics. You even grade some of my comics higher than I did, even though it meant you guys are going to have to pay more for them. I really want to thank Lone Star Comics for giving me a place to go when I want to sell comics. I also want to thank you for processing my stuff very quickly and sending out payments just as quickly. For all these reasons, this is why I only sell to Lone Star Comics and no one else. Thanks again!
— Wil B., Noble, OK
Buddy, good day sir. I've been using your site for a few months now to sell/trade for both myself and a former comic book shop (now game store). Between my account and the one I created for the store, we've done a couple dozen transactions of around 15-20 long boxes worth of comics. These have been great in turning unwanted comics into cash or trades for something I want. I couldn't be happier with the way you handle your business. Currently I have 2 long boxes of recent transactions I need to ship you. And it looks like at the current rate of my listing all the comics I have available for you (nearing 5000 and rising!) and your want list, we'll be doing a long box or two a month for several more months. Shane, by the way, has been great in answering my questions and always answers any questions with blinding speed!
— Wes H., Lake Oswego, OR
Hi, MyComicShop. I've sold comics to you guys five times in the past year. I've always had nothing but very good experiences when dealing with you guys. I want to thank you for that. You guys are now the only place I sell my comics. I always feel like a valued customer when selling my doubles and other unwanted comics from my collection. Now I'm giving your consignment option a shot. If these books do well, I'll be sending a lot more to you guys. I'm looking forward to another outstanding transaction. Thanks again.
— Wil B., Noble, OK
I've been a long time buyer from MyComicShop, but this is my first time selling. I'm greatly impressed by how easy and straightforward the process has been so far. Thank you so much for your dedication to professionalism and your passion for the comics business! I know MyComicShop will treat me fairly, whether I am buying or selling.
— Emily T., Holstein, IA
Buddy, this is my 200th trade/sell transaction with you and the great folks at mycomicshop. I can honestly say that I have never had a single issue with any of the transactions. Your customer service is unparalleled. You all are simply the best in the business. My best regards.
— Andrew B., Hopewell Junction, NY
Buddy, I've dealt with Lone Star Comics in the selling of comics for a several years now, and it seems that every time, you find some way to pleasantly surprise me. Your generous offers seem to get better with time, your grading never disappoints and continually teaches even this old-timer of over 40 years of collecting new things to look for when fairly grading (and your grading is the fairest and most accurate in the business). Your rate of turnaround is extraordinarily fast; it seems like no time between the time books are submitted and the time I have a check in my hand. Your inventory and pricing are unsurpassed on the buying end, too. I still cringe at the time I spent selling on eBay, and wish I had all those dollars back and had known about Lone Star from the beginning. We've just concluded another transaction, and it's truly a comfort to know you and your staff is always there for ANY comics related need. As pros, you can't be touched; as the friend you've become, Buddy, you could never be replaced or surpassed. Many thanks and the happiest of New Year's wishes to the most deserving folks I know". I truly mean every word, Buddy. I hope to get to shake your hand one day.
— Gary M., Huntington, WV
Hello again to Buddy and the Lone Star Comics team. This is my 4th comics trade. No kidding around, I've been buying and trading for 25 plus years, but I've never been treated more fairly by anyone. Highest marks and kindest regards as always.
— Robert F., Clayton, NC
Buddy, I have been selling comics to Lone Star Comics now for nearly six months. To say that I have been satisfied with the results of selling my comics to your company would be a huge understatement. The advantages over eBay and other means of selling are too many to even list. But most importantly, Lone Star takes all of the hassle out of trying to sell a large number of comics. There is no better and more efficient way for an individual to sell comics than offering them to Lone Star Comics. It is just a great way to sell part of your collection and get a more than reasonable price for it. I also want to say that working with everyone at Lone Star Comics is a real pleasure. They are very professional and always extremely courteous. I have really benefited from the extra time that Este has spent helping me understand the grading on my books. So I would like to extend a big thank you to everyone at Lone Star Comics and I hope we can continue to do business for a very long time.
— Steve S., Newbury Park, CA
Just wanted you guys to know how much I appreciate your manner of conducting business. I've always been wary of doing business over the web and through the mail, but you have strengthened my faith that some still take pride in their work and operate with integrity. When recently deciding to sell a few of my comics, and having then peddled them around at local shops and on many web sites, your offer beat all the rest. So, taking the advice from your customer feedback, my comics were shipped on a Tuesday, and the "CASH-IN-A-FLASH" Lone Star Comics check was in my hand that coming Monday! Also, your free online system for recording, selling, and buying comics makes the entire trading process fun and easy! Thanks again for (as advertised) your fair offer, honest grading, speedy service, and prompt payment. I look forward to making Lone Star Comics and mycomicshop.com my first choice for a happy comic business experience.
— George L., Winston-Salem, NC
Let me begin by singing some praise about your organization. So far I've bought twice from you and traded once and in each case I was very pleased with both product and service. It's obvious that you have an old school mentality concerning how you regard your customers and I look forward to a long business relationship. Again, thanks for the exceptional service and fair treatment.
— Robert F., Clayton, NC
Gentlemen, I expected some grading deviation and I'm actually pleased that I was as close as I was in most cases. I was pleased with the books that I bought from you recently and I am now very pleased with the type of trading partner you've turned out to be. Now that I've tested the waters, count on me being back in touch with another trade list consisting of more "keys" and fewer "rank-and-files." Again, thanks for treating me fairly.
— Robert F., Clayton, NC
Once again, an absolute pleasure doing business with Lone Star Comics. Especially since I sent these Friday. You guys rock. Your company is the reason comics remain fun and accessible for future generations. Now more than ever, people need to discover the magic of this entertainment forum. At a time when our sports zeroes continuously drop the ball, these fictional characters show what can be. Thanks and Semper Fi!
— Chris A., Sanford, NC
Buddy, Thanks for the personal reply. I'd just like to say I'm quite impressed with the professional manner in which run your business. I'm an engineer by trade, and I'm very impressed with your buy/sell system from the technical side. I imagine the inventory control system must have been a real challenge to put together! Please keep up the great job you are doing, it's appreciated.
— Frank C., Harvard, MA
Mr. Saunders, I just wanted to say that you run a fine organization. Your automated system is awesome and it seems to me it has to be well worth what you paid for it. The comics I am trading-in are for credit only, and I like that because this gives me a chance to fill holes in my collection and do up-grades. Thanks for what you do. You are making my hobby a lot of fun. Each and every one of my emails have been answered quickly and professional. Since I have retired from the US Army (18 months ago), I have traded you over 1,200 of my comic doubles. I am 53 years old and have been a collector, really just a reader, who has kept his comics for over 40 years. I have approximately 18,000 in my collection.
— John E., Kennesaw, GA
I had a very valuable and rare collection of Golden-Era Superman-Tim comic books published in the 1940's and early 1950's. I was impressed by the Mycomicshop.com website and the information provided on how to sell a full collection out right. I emailed a list of my comics along with scans. Within a couple of hours, I received a personal phone call from the owner, Buddy Saunders. He said he was ready to meet my asking price providing that the books were as described. I was reluctant at first on sending the books on faith, but Buddy spent some time with me over the phone and eased my concerns. Yet, because we were talking a lot of money, I double checked the Mycomicshop.com website and noticed that there were multiple store locations and a link to the Better Business Bureau. I also checked the Mycomicshop feedback score on eBay. And, finally I checked with the Better Business Bureau. In the end, I was convinced that that this was a very legitimate business with high ethical standards. I mailed my comics the very next day via USPS (registered/insured as Buddy suggested). The following day, I received a call from Buddy telling me that he had received the comics and that they were as described. Buddy again agreed to my asking price over the phone without any price negotiation. I received an email the same day confirming that a Lone Star Comics company check would be mailed to me the following day. The check arrived promptly. Thus, within the space of five days, Lone Star Comics received my 22 Superman Tims, and I had a check in hand. I could not have been better pleased. I am a very satisfied customer and I highly recommend Lone Star Comics.
— Scott B., Dresden, Tennessee
Hi Buddy, I currently have a batch of books at your place being reviewed for trade. Once I have the offer for store credit back I will be placing another order. I also want to take the time to say that the comics I’ve purchased from you have been exceptional. I know I’ve gone over this before, but I can’t emphasize enough how nice it is to know that I’m getting my money’s worth. Also, your website is just phenomenal. I can honestly say now that I don’t even consider anyone else but MyComicShop.com for my collecting wants. Thanks again for your time and consideration. I look forward to many more purchases from you in the future.
— Jay S., Spencerport, NY
