Dear MyComicShop Folks,
You've been my one source for back issue comics for a few years now, and I've several times let you know that this is so because of your hugely-helpful listing of artists' credits on each book. As an illustrator and life-long follower of comics primarily for the artists I admire (rather than titles, writers, or characters), your listing system has allowed me to find many comics I would otherwise not have known about.
But just last night, I discovered on your site, for the first time, an additional reason to value your service even more highly.
I often develop an interest in a certain artist years after he's first appeared, and have to work backwards to collect his work. Last night I was ordering a few books that I'd heard Duncan Fegredo had drawn, which I could confirm from your listings.
I was ready to complete this order, when a notion occurred to me. What would happen if I just put 'Duncan Fegredo' in your search box? I didn't expect that would work, but, to my astonishment and delight, a huge list of titles that included that keyword appeared! Books I'd never heard of! And better yet, the listings enabled me to distinguish between which books had only a Cover by the artist, vs. those that he fully or partially pencilled. My order soon tripled, and I have your exceptional system to thank. I know of no other like it.
So, please accept my thanks for your thoroughness & helpfulness to collectors such as myself, with specific interests and needs - you fulfill them all. Please pass this letter on to everyone involved in creating and maintaining this service.

I just received the 7.0 CGC Batman Ra's Al Ghul I ordered. I was most impressed with the presentation upon opening the shipping box! The foam corner protectors, ample brown paper filler and the white Lone Star Comics box that contained the slabbed comic. I was astounded when I opened the white box!!! Fantastic presentation!!! This was my first CGC purchase and have been wanting the Ra's Al Ghul issue for well over 10 years. This now completes my 1940 Batman series from #200 to present. I am next working on collecting #150 to #199 and WILL be referencing your online store to source these books. Thanks again and I am one happy customer!
— Jim W., Washington, PA
Just a line to say that, as a customer of a few years’ standing, I always prefer to buy from your company. I’ve used a few other dealers in the past, but no one else matches not just MyComicShop.com’s prices and deals, but the sheer range of items you folks offer.
Comic book geeks like me are interested in a lot more “geek” stuff than just the comics. For me, there are the pulp magazines, too, anywhere from the classics like The Shadow and Doc Savage, to the more modern Analog and Asimov’s, but also, in my case, Alfred Hitchcock’s and Ellery Queen’s Detective Magazines, which I’m pleased to see are also part of your potential range. I’m into tecfic as well as specfic, so it gladdens my heart.
Today, for instance, I placed an order that contains 13 of the World’s Best SF annuals (for sweet prices), an Analog, an F&SF, plus Marvel Comics #1000, Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica, and the clincher, The 13th Doctor Holiday Special Comic Books for Kids variant (which will be a present for someone).
Is there another comic book dealer that offers the buyer such a range? I think not.
Oh, and every week there’s the email update, with your version of the late great Mr. Lee’s “Soapbox,” and the Odinson’s informative mini-essays on comic book history (my pet subject).
A huge range that extends beyond just comics, great prices AND a worthwhile weekly read. In the words of Ira Gershwin, sung by rather a lot of people, from Ethel Merman and Judy Garland to Gene Kelly, who could ask for anything more? (But no, like Fozzie Bear, I don’t got rhythm.)
NOTE: Marcus has been a customer with us since 2002.
Marcus first commented on our site almost 20 years ago, in 2002: Dear folks, I've been a comic book fan from 1968 and the age of 4. Just looked at your new site design. Absolutely stunning! Excellent, spacious layout, huge quantities of information of immense use to anyone interested in comics history and content. The new look is extremely easy-on-the-eye with easy-to-use systems and links. Not just a site on which to BUY comic books, but a resource from which to LEARN about them. Possibly the biggest boon to the comic collector of the last decade. And thousands of comic books at very reasonable prices! Consider yourselves no-prized (platinum edition)!
— Marcus F., Cambridge, United Kingdom
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
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
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
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
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 want to give credit where credit is due. After years of hiatus from collecting comic books, your website is directly responsible for me getting back in the game. With Mycomicshop’s ease of use, the selection, and the low prices, I have become an active collector again. This time I will not lapse and you have a customer for life.
— Jerry A., Denver, CO
Just sitting here listening to my favorite music and browsing mycomicshop.com and had a few thoughts I'd like to pass on to you. I love you guys! You have just about anything I want in comics and if you don't, all I have to do is put it on my wish list and in a while, sure enough, I get an email that let's me know you have it. And I can't get over how you guys are so reasonably priced. What your prices tell me is that you really care about people reading comics and how much you love this media. Thank you for that. The shop nearest to my home is 30-plus miles from me. I did not get any of those feelings there. It was unfriendly and getting into this hobby at 37-years-old, I found them unhelpful. I'd like to tell you that the way your website is organized is very helpful to someone just starting out in comics. For all of the people at mycomicshop.com, thank you and keep it up. After three-plus years in this hobby, when people ask what the name of my shop is, I tell them, "Mycomicshop.com. They're the best place to shop in the hobby!" Sorry for geeking out. Just wanted to let you know.
— Andy L., Menomonie, WI
I wanted to touch base to let you know that I recently bought yet another great batch of Silver Age comics from you! Your website is absolutely the best! As opposed to ordering a comic that is described as "VF" and then hoping for the best (as required by one of your competitors), I can actually see large scans of the exact comic that I will receive! Moreover, I appreciate the fact that you guys don't first raise prices before implementing a codeword, and therefore the savings realized by your customers are real! You guys are the best comic dealers with the best comics selection and the best website on the planet!
— Joel P., Cincinnati, OH
Buddy and team, back for another trade. As always, highest marks on all aspects -- grading, prices, packaging, customer service -- you've got it all. On top of all of this, you've really added another level of fun to my hobby. I really enjoy trolling flea markets and yard sales looking for that book I can get for a bargain in order to trade up with Lone Star Comics for something that I want. Again, all the thanks in the world to Buddy and team.
— Robert F., Clayton, NC
Hi guys, as a recent visitor to your Central Arlington Store (on 3/24/10), I wanted to praise store and staff. I am from Conway, Arkansas, which is just outside of Little Rock. I was so impressed by your staff. The assistant manager was there and he was incredibly nice and helpful. I had my seven year old daughter and three year old son with me. Your assistant manager was extremely nice to them, giving them free comics. They loved the free books and, along with the assorted books, toys, and sticker albums I bought for them, they left on Cloud 9. Your store looks terrific. I have traveled to New York a lot with my job and I think I have been in every hobby shop/game store/comic book store in the city along with pretty much every store in the Dallas area, as well as stores throughout Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana, and Texas. Last count, I think in the last 15 years, I have now been to over 120 different comic/game/hobby stores and I have never been in one nicer than yours. I ran a Hobbytown USA franchise for several years and have been to dozens of other Hobbytown stores along with the comic book stores I mention above and I have a deep appreciation for a nice store when I see it, and I have never seen one any better than yours, be it a Hobbytown USA franchise, a game store, or a comic book store. Great job guys!!! Stores like your Central Arlington store and the staff in it along with all of the joy the comics bring me and my kids are some of the reasons I have been collecting for nearly 30 years. Keep up the awesome work.
— Rodney P., Conway, AR
I have been a customer of one of your competitors for over 20 years. I can remember ordering through their catalogs (pre internet). I would save up my meager allowance to buy an Uncanny X-Men #58 in VG condition, then wait like a loyal hound by the mailbox for three weeks until it arrived. So, yeah, it's been a long time with them. Having said that, and even though it pains me to say it, your competitor is no longer my online comic shop. You, MyComicShop, are now my source for comics. Both you and your competitor have fantastic inventories and prompt delivery, but what sets MyComicShop apart for me is what I get for my money. It's hard to not be a fan of Mycomicshop. You offer better prices under a fairer (is that a word?) grading system. And really, it's as simple as that. Especially in today’s economy, “more bang for your buck” is appreciated. Now, I haven’t been a customer for very long, but I just thought you should know that I’ve switched over, and I thought you should know why. Thanks for letting me rant.
— Aaron F., North Hollywood, CA
I've done business over the years with many companies. Both local shops and online. Your selection is incredible and your service is great. Your trading system makes it affordable for me to buy comics in a time when I couldn't if I had to pay cash. I thank you so much for being here and upholding all your upstanding business practices. Your search functions are better than many sites. Not only can I search to find my favorite character appearances, I can also search for my favorite artist/writer appearances (Jim Starlin). I can't say enough about how much I appreciate all the people that are involved in everything from the trades I submit to the orders I place to the superb condition in which I receive my orders. Every man and woman in your company is doing an excellent, and really above and beyond, job of making customers happy. I am most definitely one of those happy customers. Keep up the good work. And thank you, each individual member of Lone Star Comics, for contributing what you do to make this the best place to sell/trade/buy comics.
— Shawn B., Oklahoma City, OK
Dear all at Lone Star Comics, I just wanted to let you know that I received my order this morning and I was left completely speechless when I opened it! In my long years of shopping over the internet, I have never, ever seen such careful and loving packing of a book. Your dedication to the best service clearly surpasses any other experience I have had with any other bookstore in the world. Down to your beautifully written letter, signed by the owner ( which could only be topped if the letter was printed with a hand-written font :) ), this experience sincerely took me back twenty years. I was a kid again! Finding you was just like discovering a little heart-warming bookstore hidden away in my town. Thank you so much for your love and your dedication to comics. It's so nice to see that there are people and companies that care about their products and customers. You have certainly won my heart.
— Michael T., Athens, Greece
Buddy, thank you very much for responding personally. I am quite impressed by you, your company, and your web site. I just want to really thank you for starting Mycomicshop. Your prices are very affordable and fair, and your web site is easy to use--best of breed. I am 56 years old and many years ago my father put all my comics in the garbage one day when he was doing spring cleaning. I have been dwelling on this loss far too long. When I discovered your web site a month ago, I could not believe my eyes. I had assumed over the many years that I would never see my comics again, but you had them in stock. Thanks to you, I am now replacing all those I lost. Thanks again.
— John J., Toronto Ontario, Canada
Dear Buddy and crew, I've been buying a pretty substantial number of comics from you over the past 6-8 months. I'll be the first to admit it's gotten a bit obsessive--note the number of orders, sometimes multiples per week! That's because your selection blows me away, and I've gotten the bug for Bronze Age keys and semi-keys. Anyway, I've purchased a nicer copy of Amazing Spider-Man 129 recently, and thought it might be time to retire my lesser (but still attractive) copy by trading it to you. I have a lot of mid-to-high-grade Copper Age material that I thought better of listing now, but I will upload later when I hope to have more "good stuff" to offer you. In the meantime, hope my current batch of comics will suit you. By the way, I belonged to your monthly sub service back in the early '80s when Miller's Daredevil was king--seems like a long time ago! Thanks for your time and consideration.
— Paul Y., Nashville, TN
Hi Buddy, I've been a customer for a couple of years with Lone Star Comics and purchased hundreds (if not thousands) of comics with you over that time through both your subscription service and back issue catalogue. I've been idle over the past month, but it's not because I've jumped ship or stopped collecting comics. Rather, higher education has come calling so I've had to make some cutbacks. Unfortunately, one of the hardest cutbacks I've had to make is my comic collecting. Before Mycomicshop, I struggled with other subscription services that delivered my comic badly damaged. I also had a very hard time finding quality back issues. But Lone Star Comics changed all that. I'd just like to commend you and your entire staff on the excellent job they've done. Your service is among the best I've received with anybody and hopefully you're wonderful site (and stores) will remain active for years to come. So thank you, and hopefully, after life has settled down a little, I'll be able resume my patronage.
— Brandon W., Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada
I can't tell you how great it is to find these and then pick them up at your Arlington store. I really appreciate the scans and grading! I have been out of comics for several years but you make it easy to get some great stories and issues. I love your sales and deal (unlike pricing elsewhere that I have found to be very inflated). Thank you. I also wanted to say thank you for how carefully packed my comics are, even though just coming to your nearby store where I pick up. It means a lot and makes me keep coming back. Thanks to Buddy, Judy, and everybody, and especially to Beth.
— Joe G., Arlington, TX
I can't believe how GIGANTIC your company's selection is! I've tried everywhere, including e-Bay, to try and find some of the items which mycomicshop.com has in ample supply. Plus, your site is easy to navigate AND has a responsive and helpful customer service staff. You guys really are the best! Thanks for everything.
— Ryan H., Anacortes, WA
Great prices. I started out intending to make a similar order with your competitors. You had more, for less money, and free shipping on top of that. I won't make the mistake of going anywhere else first next time!
— Jason F., Portland, OR
I just received my first shipment from Lone Star Comics. What can I say but that you guys run a brilliant store! Your website is the most user-friendly I have come across. From searching through your vast stock to completing an order, everything is simply laid out and effective to use. Packaging is another strength. My shipment came half way across the world secure and undamaged. You guys could teach Amazon a thing or two. Finally, your customer service is brilliant. For example, two of the items shipped had defects and Beth, who I e-mailed with questions, was quick to respond, courteous and extremely helpful. The situation was rectified quickly and beyond my expectations. I didn?t realize customer service still existed--it is something of a rarity these days. I will definitely shop from your store again.
— Leon G., Adelaide, Australia
This is a remarkable buisness! I cannot stop ordering from your site! My childhood is all flashing back to me every time I see the Swam Thing comics or Hulk, and then I can actually buy them and relive those great memories I had as a young boy reading comics with his dad. Thanks for running a site with the best prices EVER! I cannot believe the prices no matter how many times I order. They are beyond exceptional! One day when I have children they will inherit the fantastic titles I bought from your MARVELous site!
— Austin B., Springville, NY
We have had only great experiences ordering back issues from your excellent website in the past six months, which we will continue to do in the future. I have been greatly impressed with your customer service, packaging, fill rate and not the least your expediency.
— Mikkel F., Copenhagen, Denmark
Great price and unbelievable selection! I know where I'll be getting my comics!
— Russell E., Medford, MA
Buddy, I just wanted to thank you for contacting me directly. I am inclined to think that the percentage of business owners/businesses that actually respond to their customers is in the minority, so I very much appreciate the fact that not only did you respond, but that you obviously spent time considering my letter and responding to it.
I would like it to be known that your website is outstanding, and is a primary reason I am active in reading and collecting comic books again. It's very convenient for me to look up any comic I can think of, get a picture and some background on it, and know that I have a price up front, and that it is a fair one.
While I appreciate traditional comic book stores, I no longer frequent them as I get better pricing, service, and availability through you.
I certainly understand the situation regarding the increase in gas prices, and how they have an affect on everything - I travel throughout New Jersey for work, and my reimbursements through work don't even cover the gasoline anymore.
Thank you for respecting my opinion on the shipping changes, and thank you for really caring about your customers.
— Garry D., Colonia, NJ
Your selection is succulently eclectic, your customer service is as efficient as it is affable, and your prices/sales simply can't be beat! I didn't think it was possible for me to enjoy comics more than I already do, and your shop makes that possible. Thank you so much. Three cheers for the people and staff who make Lone Star what it is, the best!
— Mary S., Stow, OH
I would like to go on record as sayinig that you guys are the best comic book store I have ever found in my 20+ years of collecting! No hassles, no problems, good back issues sale prices, excellent customer service, and now I find out: A great trade program as well. You can bet if I lived near enough to commute to your store, I would be there every Wednesday. As it is, your subservice plan is excellent. Well done, friends.
— Graham G., Lawrenceville, GA
I am a very satisfied customer. I was skeptical at first though; buying comic books online was a very big risk. You don't know if what the person advertises is in the same condition you think it should be in. Do they really even have the books they say they do, etc.? I felt very nervous when I made my eighty dollar purchase (for a kid in college that is a small fortune). I was so pleasantly surprised when I got my order today. Everything was there in the shape you advertised it to be in. Great prices, great selection, quick shipping practices. You have just created one very happy customer. In fact I'm compiling my next order right now. Thank you so much for the great books.
— Adam S., Tulsa, OK
Great selection, looking forward to seeing how the shipping and handling goes.
— Nick B., Lincoln, NE
It's not just the sheer volume of stock you have that makes this site amazing. It's how easy it is to find everything, and the details you have about each issue.
— Mark F., Lower Norton, Canada
Thanks for having great books
— John E., Kennesaw, GA
To whom it may concern;
I am taking this opportunity to contact you NOT to make aware of an unsatisfactory situation, but to commend your business for which I have just began to use. My affection and respect has been gained by the standout qualities of MyComicShop.
I must point out the 3 main features that have grasped my attention during my time using your service. They are; Ease of use on the site, Want List notifications, and I am constantly impressed by the vigilance in your shipping of purchased product. When I received my latest shipment, I opened the package and was delighted with how well preserved and protected my comics were sent to me. All my previous purchases were shipped in the same manner.
You have gained a loyal customer henceforth!
— David S., Pasadena, MD
Thanks for having the best selection in the multiverse and for taking great care of me in the past.
— Jason A., Salt Lake City, UT
Great back issue/current comic book company! Will be with you all for a very long time!
— Carl M., Fayetteville, NC
I love how thorough and detailed your listings are! Thank you all so much once again! -J
— Jono D., Montreal, Canada
I don’t know where to leave a five star review for your services, so I just wanted to at least send a thank you message! My Comics Shop helped me find a very rare comic book for an AMAZING price. It was also clear that great care had been put into the packaging of my purchase. Some stores just chuck a book in a box and hope for the best. The secure manner that my book was packed in- including a nice plastic sleeve over the book- really meant a lot. The grading of the book I purchased was also A+, honest and accurate! Unfortunately, I’ve had more than my fair share of pretty bad experiences with used book stores selling me “Very Fine” books only to send me copies of books that are absolutely ripped to shreds. As a first time customer I was very nervous, but My Comics Shop really impressed me! Thank you all so much and I hope everyone at My Comics Shop has a wonderful week!
— Alexis W., Knoxville, TN
My son loved the last order, thanks a bunch!
— Brandy G., LaBelle, FL
Thanks again for the comics, love them so much.
— Vladimir G., Lawnton, Australia
Last shipment was wonderful!
— Stephen J., Stacy, MN
You guys are the best shop around! Always the best books and the best service!
— Harold J., Georgetown, KY
Unbelievably easy to use! Such a great selection! I've been searching for a website like this for months, thank you!
— Jake P., Sequim, WA
Love. You. Guys. SOOOO MUCH !!!! Thanks for ALWAYS having what I'm looking for, no matter how obscure. You NEVER disappoint.
— Sean S., Painted Post, NY
Thank you for the great selection of comics at fair prices.
— Justin E., Huntley, IL
I always love shopping at mycomicshop, it's the coolest comic book site. All the info and photos of every book is on here. It's very easy to order old back issue comics, keep up the great service.
— Rick B., Belleville, NJ
Happy Spring to everyone at mycomicshop.com!! Thank you for your continued Great selection of comics and service!
— Shawn D., Whitestone, NY
Hello to everyone.
Just to let you know, my comics have arrived. A very wonderful surprise as I didn't expect them till May at the earliest. All comics in splendid condition. Thank you again for such excellent service.
— Ian D., Gloucester, United Kingdom
