The DCBS thread

Recommended Posts

DCBS has "The Nobody" for 55% off, only $8.99. It's a 144 Vertigo OGN HC by Jeff Lemiere who's gotten a lot of critical acclaim for his Essex County Trilogy.

The tiny, isolated fishing village of Large Mouth never saw much excitement — until the arrival of the stranger, that is. Wrapped from head to toe in bandages and wearing weird goggles, he quietly took up residence in the sleepy town’s motel. Driven by curiosity, the townfolk quickly learn the tragic story of his past, and of the terrible accident that left him horribly disfigured. Eventually, the town embraces the stranger as one of their own — but do his bandages hide more than just scars?

Inspired by H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man, THE NOBODY explores themes of identity, fear and paranoia in a small community from up-and-coming alternative comics creator and Xeric Award-winner Jeff Lemire (The Essex County Trilogy) in a special two-color story that’ll have you guessing until the very end.

Bestowed with limited psychic powers and X-ray vision, Tommy Monaghan is a hitman living in Gotham City. He runs afoul of mobsters, demons, superheroes and soldiers. Despite the humor seen throughout the series, it's actually a very dark and serious book. It's also one of Ennis' strongest runs.

I dropped the X-Force hardcover from my order, because next month might be a big one, and I needed to save my pennies.

I just e-mailed about shipping to the UK.

I hope to get a reply as I am sick of being conned in comic shops for books I want.

Also do they old trades as well as new ones as I really want to get the first trade of tiny titans.

It was an extra $14 to ship to Canada which i thought was fair and still saves me over Amazon on trades.

I think you can edit your order after you place it by adding the old trades to it on the site...if what I think is correct is correct that is.

I decided to forgo the Astonishing X-Men omnibus, so this is my final order... I think:

Caliber: First Canon of Justice

Hercules: The Thracian Wars

Nexus: As It Happened

The Irredeemable Ant-Man

Previews

Then again, I might get this:

Astonishing X-Men omnibus

Caliber: First Canon of Justice

Hercules: The Thracian Wars

Previews

Bah! Okay, my order isn't final.

A question:

Say next month I only have a few comics to buy and don't want to pay the $20 for shipping on $10 of stuff, can I order them the next month or is that not cool?

DCBS allows late orders, but I'm not sure if the charge for said books will be added to the month in which they were solicited (and should have been ordered), or the month in which they were ordered. You'll have to shoot them an e-mail to find out.

I haven't got a reply to my e-mail yet.

Edit: Got my reply:

Hi,

Thank you for your inquiry. We base all of our international shipping rates on the weight of the package. If you could please give us an idea of what you like to purchase, we can give you an approximate shipping rate.

Please let us know if you have any more questions. We appreciate your business!

Thanks,

Carrie

What nice people.

I think I'm going to try out Batman and Robin and a few trades if i can from them.

I've replied with what i'm interested in comic wise and it really wasn't that much.

It won't be cheaper. Previously, I've worked out the math: in America your monthly DCBS order would have to be around $15 to make it worthwhile. Otherwise, trips to the store would still be less expensive. Now I don't know what shipping to the UK would be, but you won't be saving money on a $7 order.
