Greetings, fellow Geekboxers! Many people have asked if Comics Conspiracy, where we record each and (almost) every episode of the Geekbox, has an online web store. As of right now, we do not, however that does not mean we cannot supply you with the best comic books around. For years now, we've offered mail order to all parts of the world, and we'll gladly ship comics to you, regardless of where you live.

As we're a small brick-and-mortar store, we just can't offer the same types of deals Amazon.com and other online discounters offer, but we're willing to make it worth your while to order from us. First, we will be offering free shipping for all orders placed in from the US for every order over $20, and discounted shipping rates for international orders. Second, we always get random free swag from comic and gaming companies, and we'll try and throw in some sweet stuff with each order. It might be a poster, some comics, maybe even a free game or something equally awesome! And third, everyone that orders will get a shout-out on the podcast, thanking them for supporting the store and the podcast!

Generally speaking, we can get you just about any in-print comic book or trade paperback. We stock a wide variety of titles, but there are many we're just unable to stock, but we'll gladly order a copy if it's available. All orders for in-stock items will be shipped out the following day from receiving the order, and all special orders will be shipped out the Tuesday we receive the item in stock. If you're interested in monthly comics, we also offer a subscription service where once a month, we'll ship out your books to you. These come bagged and boarded, and shipping is still free!

We highly suggest picking up a copy of Previews, the monthly comic book order catalogue, or checking out the monthly solicitations at sites like Comic Book Resources. The best way to make sure you get a book is to preorder it from us before we place our initial order. Generally speaking, orders are due a few days before the end of the month, so we can make sure we get your order in on time.

If you're interested in placing an order or setting up a subscription service, please e-mail us at ryan@comicsconspiracy.biz, or by calling us at 408-245-6275, Mon-Wed, Fri-Sat from 11am-7pmPST. Just ask for Ryan! :D

UPDATE! I've added an eBay store! It's mostly older comics and sets, but if you're a Geekbox listener, message us through eBay when you pay, and I'll make sure to toss in some extra goodies!

UPDATE 2! We've finally got our online storefront activated! Check us out on The Retailer Place. This is mail order, and you can order trade paperbacks, DVDs, CDs, books, and other merchandise. We'd still love to take your orders through the physical storefront as well, but this is an option for people to use, especially for items we don't normally carry like DVDs. The discounts aren't quite as good as something like Amazon still, however the store does get a nice kickback, and it continues to support both the store and the podcast.

UPDATE 3! We're now offering the comiXology Digital Storefront! Buy your legal digital comics through our storefront, and read them on your comiXology app on your favorite portable device. Hello, the future!

Yay! You didn't pull a Ryan Scott!

(Why does that sound so dirty???)

It's kind of like pulling a 'Rusty Venture'.

Thanks for the reply email, Higgins. Now would you be willing to sell non-comic related swag, like figures, statues, etc.?

Sure. We don't carry a ton in the store, but if they're a new solicit, I can order them. Sometimes they take a while to come out, as you know DC Direct is like 9-10 months out sometimes, but I'm always down for ordering that stuff.

I only usually buy comics at cons and on rare occasion from Conspiracy Comics [a small comic/manga/card/figurine/etc. store chain in the Burlington/Hamilton and Oakville area] when I happen to be walking by the one local to where I am. Sorry Master Higgins unfortunately I don't have the money to take a hit on shipping and buying stuff at non-con prices. :(

You do realize that cons are where merch is marked UP until the last day, right?

Don't know what cons you go to but I've always found stuff marked down a bit by the end of the first day marked down by a fair margin on the second day and really cheap the last day.

Fan Expo and Anime North are totally real cons that I have gone to multiple times. They were not cons that I had to visit in the imaginary domain.

Eh, there are always booths with blowout tpbs and big stock dumps at cons these days. You can score some sweet deals on Sundays, too.

Thanks for getting Superboy: The Boy of Steel for me, Higgins! Always a pleasure doing business with Comics Conspiracy! Lord knows Ryan Scott won't pay for comics. :lol:
