How do I order?

  1. Find the comic you’d like to order by navigating the “Shop CPV Comics” tab on the menu.
  2. Add the comic to the shopping cart.
  3. When you have all your products, go to the cart and complete the checkout process.
  4. We process all major credit cards using Square.

For all other shipping possibilities, including other international destinations, orders of more than 50 comics in North America or more than 15 comics to International destinations, please contact me to discuss shipping options.

All orders will be prepared and shipped within 2 business days of ordering. Shipping is via Canada Post from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

All comics are shipped bagged (polypropylene) and boarded. Orders of 1-3 comics will be shipped sandwiched between cardboard in an envelope. Larger orders of 4+ comics will be packed the same way but shipped in a box.

Shipping times can vary significantly depending on your distance from Toronto and/or if the package is crossing the border. US Customers please note that there may be customs fees on orders of over $50. It is your responsibility to pay those fees.

What currency am I paying in and do you charge taxes?

ALL PRICES ON THE SITE ARE IN CANADIAN DOLLARS. For American buyers, that means you pay about 75% of what you see on the site depending on where the exchange is at time of purchase. Use a currency conversion tool (like this one) to get an estimate on the day of purchase.

We do not charge sales taxes to buyers as at this time, we are considered a “small supplier” by the Canada Revenue Agency and are thus exempted from charging GST/HST.

Do you have a store? If I am in Toronto, can I pick up my order?

This is an exclusively online business. That said, if you are in the Greater Toronto Area and would like to avoid shipping, pickup could be arranged at a mutually beneficial location. Please contact me BEFORE you submit your order to discuss pickup details.

What is your refund policy?

If the item arrives damaged, please contact me so that we can work out a solution (replacement, store credit or refund).

Refunds are not accepted for any other reason. High resolution photos of each and every comic are available on the site prior to purchase. It is your responsibility as a buyer to examine the photos and ensure that they meet your standards. Grades are provided as a general indicator of condition and any particular condition issues will be noted on the item page.

If for some reason, you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact me so that we can discuss what happened.

I have a bunch of Canadian Price Variant comics! Will you buy them from me?

Maybe! Send me a list of what you have (Title and Issue #) along with a general idea of their condition (a few photos perhaps) and I will be happy to discuss an offer.

I’m looking for a specific Canadian Price Variant issue that you don’t have listed. Can you help me find it?

I can try! Living in Toronto, I have access to what should be, statistically-speaking, the deepest pool of Canadian Price Variant issues in the world. Let me know what you are looking for and I will go on the hunt! I do love a good treasure hunt!

Do you sell other comics that aren’t Canadian Price Variants also?

Absolutely though our focus is always on bringing in those rarer Canadian Price Variants. On the Shop pages, at the top-left corner, you can filter by CPVs or non-CPVs. At this time, there is really nothing on the site printed post-1993 – our focus is on Silver, Bronze and Copper Age comics.

Do you sell on eBay?

I actually got my start on eBay before launching this site and continue to maintain an eBay profile. Selling on eBay incurs significantly higher fees. To sell a comic on eBay, they (along with Paypal) will keep on average about 25% of the sale. When I sell a comic here on this site, Square keeps about 4% of the sale and I get the rest. So while I do continue to sell on eBay, it is not my main priority. Anything poster there will be at the same price or higher than listed here. So I encourage you to buy here so that I can continue to reinvest more money in stocking this site. That said, I maintain a 100% positive feedback rating on eBay and you can head there to see my profile and issues for sale.
