I do not see an comic I wanted available for pre-order, I believe that it should be, can I order it?
As long as it's available for pre-order and its not past FOC, absolutely! We work very hard to make sure we upload the entire upcoming months catalogs, but sometimes with data files, system errors and other factors it can cause a item not to get uploaded properly. Or sometimes new items come available independently and may not have been uploaded. If you don't see an item that you think you should be able to order, just email us at email@example.com and we will be sure to make it available for you to pre-order.
Why do your incentive/ratio comics cost so much?
For those not familiar (Incentive) and (Ratio) comics are special limited editions of a comic meant for collectors. They are typically listed with the Ratio at the end of the title like "Amazing Spider-Man #45 artist var 1:25 " the 1:25 part means that for every 25 regular copies there are only 1 copy of that variant. So they will always be more limited than a regular cover.
The reason we charge more is that it costs us a lot more to get that cover. We would have to buy 25 or whatever the ratio is of that cover, in order to obtain it. So if we allowed a lower price point then we would be left hanging onto large quantities of that title that may not be able to be sold. So to prevent any risk to us, we sell our ratios at what they cost us to get. This way there is no financial risk for us to order them, and they are available to anyone who wants them.
Can I cancel my pre-order?
In short no, this is because the nature of the pre-order. When you pre-order and item, we also pre-order that item, and if we allow cancelation of pre-orders then we are left with the financial investment of that order as we are also not allowed to return any ordered stock. We may in special circumstances offer store credit or some sort of alternative options. We have every pre-order item specially marked and we have the FOC date as well as the estimated ship date listed in every description of the items. Be sure to pay close attention to those parts so you know when to expect them as well being aware that the items you are ordering are non-refundable. If you have any questions on a particular listing please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org you can also find additional information in our terms of service.
