If we discover an error in the price of goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.
Ownership and title in the goods do not pass to the Customer until full payment has been received.
Order acknowledgements are emailed. The order acknowledgement is not a guarantee to supply and it is not an invoice. Customers should always check their acknowledgement to ensure that their order is correct.
We will always only email the order invoice unless you specifically ask for a paper copy to be included with the order.
You must be 18 years or over to make web, email and/or catalogue purchases.

Give a contact telephone number (if possible) and your e mail address (if applicable). Enclose your correct payment or credit card details.
Cheques will not be banked until the first available item on your order is ready to ship. We then have to bank your whole cheque. We recommend that cheque customers ordering a number of pre-order/ out of stock items , send in several cheques to cover their order, which means that we automatically stagger payments when items are shipped separately.
Your cheque guarantee card number must be written on the back of your cheque. Cheques have to be cleared before parcels can be dispatched. Depending on the clearing banks involved, that process can take several days.
Postal Orders, when used to pay for orders are treated as cash and banked immediately.

All pre-order stock is posted out via Royal Mail 1st class to enable us to keep our costs down. Payment is taken when you place the order.
Release dates and comic covers are subject to change by the publishers but we will always do our best to keep you informed and supply the most up to date cover images. Several comics come with 2 or more covers, we cannot specify which covers we want when ordering, but in most cases the wholesaler will supply us with a selection. If you would like a particular cover please email us in advance of the release date or put a note on your order and we will try our best to supply you with the requested cover. Please note the items will show as in stock but obviously until we receive them they will not be despatched, we need to do this to monitor the inventory levels.
