Hi Guys,

Just thought i would say hello :)

I've always been a fan of movies but had never picked up a comic book until recently, the shame I know.

Anyway.. I have decided to read into some of my favourite characters and begin collecting some comics, Recently read Batman Hush and realised I know nothing about my favourite characters storyline :bat:

My question really is where is best to buy comics online ? I've found some good sellers on ebay but just wondering is there a "go to" site for buying new releases etc ? Subscriptions ?

Currently collecting the Avengers Marvel Now series and plan on getting infinity & age of ultron, I have also just ordered Superman Unchained 1 & 2. Going to be getting Batman Vol 1 & 2 soon. Any other recommendations for good reads ? i've heard good things about all new x-men too ?

Look forward to hearing from you.

It is hard to get comics here in Nigeria. Sadly, downloading is the only option I have.

You have to look at what Comixology has these days when you are talking about downloading comics. But the above linked article does list the alternatives (I so hate monopolies).

Hi,

I'm new to the comic world as well so i'm still trying to figure out the best places for stuff!

For new releases the best place i've come across is http://economic-comics.co.uk/ which offer an online pull list for subscriptions for a fair price.

For back issues and recent releases ebay always seems pretty crappy for what i'm looking for. I cannot recommend enough ebid and in particular a seller on there http://uk.ebid.net/users/BlackAdam who has great prices but random issues.

There's also this list of comic shops (and online counterparts) which i found really useful http://www.ukcomicshops.co.uk/. A few randoms which i found had plenty of issues I was after from that list: comicdomain, thecomicguru, wolfcomics, avaloncomics, inter-comics and for US tfaw.com has good shipping prices but takes a couple weeks delivery.

Hope some of this helps as I know it can be a pain finding info on where to buy =)
