I need to clear out some space, so I’m putting a bunch of tpbs, graphic novels, and comics up for auction. Unless otherwise stated, these are in Very Fine condition. Many  of them are probably in better condition, but I’m grading them lower just so a Very Serious Collector won’t try to pick a fight with me. I have quite a few books that look pristine, but most of them look like they’ve been read and touched a few times, with a little cover wear or edge wear - something you'd pick up at your local Barnes & Noble rather than the CGC. And a handful of them look slightly rough: a corner is bent, a cover is creased, some color has been rubbed off a cover. Each listing has a scan of the actual book that you’ll be getting. (I don’t understand why some sellers post stock photos - do they want you to see a picture of a different copy of the book than you’ll actually be bidding on? What buyer finds that helpful?) Look at the descriptions, too – I’ve tried to point out any creases, dents, or other defects. If you’re concerned, ask, and I’ll be happy to give you a detailed description or email you a big picture of any book you want. For what it’s worth, several buyers have commented that my books were in better condition than they expected.
Every item up for sale is adult-owned, stored in a climate-controlled, pet-free, smoke-free environment. And I refuse to ship anything to you in padded envelopes - you get corrugated cardboard that passes the 200 pound crush test, and I'm slightly obsessive when it comes to packing.
Paypal only. Payment within five days of auction's end, or I’ll put the item back up for bid. If you have less than 5 recent positive feedback, please contact me before you bid, or I'll cancel your bid - I don't have anything against people with low feedback numbers, but the majority of people who forget to pay or tell me after the auction that they have to cancel the transaction because they don't have their Paypal account set up correctly have low numbers. By contrast, everybody who has contacted me before bidding has paid quickly, and I've left them extravagant feedback. 

I ship most tpbs and hardcovers in sturdy cardboard mailers that are significantly heavier than the postal service's flat rate priority mail envelopes and boxes. All packages come with shipping confirmation.

Yes, I combine shipping! I’ll ship up to four books for 5.00. If you win more than four books, I’ll charge you an extra 1.00 for each additional book. But the most you’ll pay for shipping is $10. Win 15, 20, 30 books—shipping will only be $10.
Please try to win more than one book—I want to get these books out of here, so I’ve made the cost of shipping one book overpriced. But if you win four, the shipping cost is pretty reasonable.

When the auction ends, please wait to pay until I send you an invoice, especially if you win more than one book. If you have an overwhelming compulsion to spend more money than you need to, please feel free to ignore the above advice.

Shipping to countries other than the U.S. is highly expensive, and I honestly don't expect many buyers to pay those rates. If you don’t mind paying high shipping fees, I will ship your purchase to Canada, Mexico, and other parts of North and South America via International Priority mail. An International Flat Rate Envelope that will hold up to 3 tpbs will ship to Canada for 19.95 USD and to Mexico for 23.95 USD. A Priority Mail International Medium Flat Rate Box which will hold up to 12 tpbs will ship to Canada for 40.95 USD and to Mexico for 59.95 USD. (Please note that the number of books each form of shipping can hold is only an estimate - there are some books that will never fit into a Priority Flat Rate Envelope.) If you’d like to know what it will cost to ship your item to another North or South American location, send me a message, and I’ll get back to you with the price!
Sorry, but I'm not responsible for merchandise that is lost or damaged during shipping. You may be covered by eBay Buyer Protection Services, but I encourage you to purchase USPS shipping insurance, which is available for $1.95 for up to $50 of merchandise, $2.45 for $50.01 to $100.00, etc.
Hope you win.  Bid early and bid often.
