Standing Orders

Standing Order Service

Our standing order service is designed as an easy way to get all of the titles you collect on a regular monthly basis, without the hassle of filling in a monthly order form. With a Standing Order, we do all the work for you.

Easy, Fast & Reliable

Quite simply, you provide us with a list of titles that you would like reserved for you on a regular basis, and they are systematically put away for you as the titles come into stock. You can also order titles issue by issue if you prefer, with our simple to use monthly advance order lists.

There are no subscriber fees or long term commitments, although we do require 2 months notice of cancellation, to allow for comics already on order for you.

Parcels are mailed out once a month, direct to your door, in our famous super rigid boxes, so everything arrives in tip-top condition.

How To Order

To order, simply list all the titles that you wish to receive on standing order, stating the quantity you require. We will start your standing order with the very next issue to be published (subject to availability), unless you request otherwise. We can usually supply most titles the week after your standing order is set up - there is no need to wait 2 month to catch up with advance order forms.

If you also require earlier issues, you simply let us know and we will do our best (although we cannot guarantee availability on issues that have already been published). It is advisable for you to make a copy of the titles you have ordered, for your own reference. Annuals, special editions etc are not supplied automatically for titles you have on standing order. Either list them as separate standing order items or order them using the advance order lists as they are offered in PREVIEWS.


Diamond Previews

Your full colour news & listings magazines.

To help you decide what to order each month, we offer DIAMOND PREVIEWS. A full colour advance listings magazine, containing details of the latest treasures in comics, trading cards and collectibles.

Previews is available at a special price of 2.99 per month (a saving of 25% on the RRP of 3.99).

Previews will usually be added to your standing order automatically, but is not obligatory. Simply let us know, when opening your account, if you dont want it included.

How Much Does It All Cost?

Imports are charged based on the US dollar price on the cover, based on the following conversion rate (subject to changes in the dollar/sterling exchange rate):

  • $2.99 = 2.75
  • $3.99 = 3.75
  • $4.99 = 4.50

There is a 5% discount for customers who spend 50 or more on imports each month, and a 10% discount off these rates for customers who spend 100 or more on imports each month.

Postage (which includes full insurance and virtually indestructible packaging) is charged at a flat rate of 5.99 per monthly parcel to inland UK addresses (excluding Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands and Islands).

Postage to overseas addresses (incl. Eire and Channel Islands) and N.Ireland and Scottish Highlands and Islands will be charged at cost.

How Do I Pay?

Once a month, all the items that have been reserved for you are sent out, complete with a fully itemised invoice, and the cost is charged to your account.

You can also order back-issues using your account, and these will be sent along with your next standing order parcel.

You will be asked to maintain the balance in your account at a level roughly equivalent to one and a half months worth of comics, as a deposit against future orders (with a minimum deposit level of 25).

The statement included with your order will give details of the parcels that have been sent to you, the balance left in your account, and the amount of money that you will need to pay us to cover your next parcel.

Payment requests are made via PayPal, although you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay . We will send you a PayPal invoice towards the end of each month, to cover any monies due. If you have a PayPal account, you can simply settle via your account. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can select 'Pay by Credit Card'

I am afraid that we do not accept payment by cash, postal order, cheque, or any other method.

Whats The Catch?

There isn't one! No membership or annual fees, no long term commitment (other than a 2 month notice of cancellation to allow for all comics on order).

All we ask is that you pay for your comics on time, by keeping your account fully paid up.

Nothing could be simpler. We pride ourselves on offering fast, efficient service.

The same service we've been offering for over 20 years.

Let us prove it to you.
