dedicated only to the comic world
Listings & user profiles are monitored to ensure they comply with the community guidelines.
Questions and answers on a comic´s listing are public so that everyone benefits. Nothing is hidden. But every action and intention is closely monitored, and fully moderated.
When you commit to buy a comic, then the messaging is private between buyer and seller (but still monitored by us 🧐)
We use the secure, well-used payment system – STRIPE. Choose credit cards, debit cards, bank accounts, or all of them!
Shipping with online tracking is required in order to protect everyone.
Privacy is important to us. You don’t share personal details (just the delivery address privately when the time is right).
Of course, we don’t share or sell it either. We don’t even see, or handle your confidential payment information.
All pre-sales chat is designed so that it is transparent and open – fair to everyone.
The ‘How it Works’ & FAQs are living documents, updated as we grow. Automatic emails guide you through the process.
The support team is highly responsive on the public comments, and also by email privately if we feel we can help.
We want your experience to be a positive one.

Premium comics only ($30+)
We realize the effort involved in cateloguing and storing single comics so we want to dedicate this marketplace to the higher end so that it is easier to search for the specific detail you want.
This minimum price will also reduce the volume of transactions and, therefore, it will allow the support team to be on hand to personally guide through transactions when necessary, and to provide true support when users need it.
Premium comics, merchandise, statues, and more
Our original focus for this marketplace is on premium comics, but we will also be listing many other categories of related items such as action figures, collectibles, graphic novels, manga, and so much more.
Whatever the category, all transactions will have the same robust payment protections, moderation, and listing format so that using the site is kept simple and consistent for the users.
One marketplace, globally, in US $
All users will be on the same marketplace so buyers can access sellers anywhere in the world. The sellers can attract a global audience for their premium comics.
Obscure & specialist items can be sourced anywhere, and strong SEO means that google searches will easily find an item when you search for it.
The payment systems take care of the currency conversion for you.
Why are we doing this?
… so many good reasons
Creating a safe, secure, and efficient marketplace
Too many “marketplaces” are simply chat forums where a seller posts an item for sale and a small negotiation takes place. There is then some sort of random agreement about how to proceed with buyers worried about getting scammed and sellers worried about not getting paid.
We designed this site so that the transactions are rigid and safe – Stripe protects everybody and everything happens on the site (except your confidential financial details – we don´t see those!). The process is simple & easy to follow. The buyer pays on ordering, the money is held in the middle by Stripe, the seller gets paid when the item is delivered and everything is ok.
A fair price for everyone
Many times we read that sellers had to go to shops and present their collection & they would have to accept a bid of possibly only 30% of the actual value of the collection.
We understand that the shop has to factor in the cost of sort through the collection, pay for it up front, take a risk that they don’t sell some (or all) of it, pay staff, electricity, etc, etc. But as a seller, it would be far nicer to remove all those costs and simply sell to a buyer who knows what they want and how much they want to pay for it.
We also read that not everyone is as open and transparent on existing online platforms and prices can be pushed up unrealistically. But as a buyer, it would be far nicer to know that this can’t even happen here.
Premium comics, premium service, serious buyers and sellers
By focusing on the higher end of the market, we want this to be a marketplace that is simply designed for people wanting to transact in a protected, transparent, and serious manner. There are many great sites for chatting, forums, selfies, opinions etc. but this is simply a professional marketplace with all the protections & features that should come with that word.
