The Comic Club is a cheaper alternative to traditional comic retailers - and who doesn't like saving money or stretching their hard-earned cash to an extra item (or more) a month? Unique in many respects The Comic Club is run by a comic book fan for comic book fans - collecting for almost 45 years (and supplying comic books and related material for almost as long!) with a comprehensive knowledge of everything comics and the same passion for comics as when he started reading and collecting. One thing he does know is that people want to buy their comics and comic-related material for as little as they have to and The Comic Club was formed for that very purpose!
Some frequently asked questions….answered:
WHAT IS THE COMIC CLUB?
The Club is modelled on a ‘collective’ approach and has been since it's beginnings way back in 1978. Formed before the advent of comic shops it was originally a group of comic book aficionados in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne area wanting to combine their purchasing power to buy comics at wholesale rather than retail prices. Since then it has grown considerably and continues to offer a cheaper alternative to buying comics from traditional retailers. The Comic Club offers almost everything that a traditional retailer does….but at a discount of 16% (minimum) of retail price each and every month! Not only that, but the same discount applies to everything currently held in print by our distributor - 10,000+ items including trade paperbacks, hard-covers etc. We deal with the largest distributor of comics and related material in the world so have access to almost everything comic book related.
WHAT DOES THE COMIC CLUB DO?
Not only does The Comic Club provide members with a minimum saving of 16% off the retail price of comics, trade paperbacks, hard-covers, magazines, books, toys, busts, statues and apparel it also gives them access to our distributor's regular sale lists. Just like retailers, our distributor has regular sales to off-load overstocked items and members of The Comic Club get to take advantage of this providing further opportunities for fantastic savings - you wouldn't get this from a retailer.
WHAT ARE THE COMIC CLUB PRICES?
Members benefit by paying only 70p to the $ on the cover price of their orders making it significantly cheaper to get comics, trades, hard-covers, magazines, books, toys, busts, statues, apparel & other comic-related goodies. For example:
|Cover Price||Comic Club Price||Retail (Shop) Price||Saving on Retail|
(Prices correct as of 1.3.2017)
This applies to everything from all the major and independent comic companies including Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, IDW, DYNAMITE, Fantagraphics, Black Mask, Aftershock, Bongo, BOOM!, Valiant, Rebellion, Titan, Eaglemoss etc. The Comic Club deals with the same distributor that supplies all comic retailers in the UK. This is for both material ordered in advance of publication/production (Pre-Orders) and for everything currently in print and in stock with our distributor.
CAN I GET BACK ISSUES FROM THE COMIC CLUB?
Although The Comic Club deals primarily with advance order comic books and related material it also holds approximately 20,000 items for sale in stock. You can find a selection of them on this website at remarkably low prices! Take a look and you’ll find a range of comics, trades, hard-covers, magazines, books, toys, busts and statues.
HOW DO I BUY FROM THE COMIC CLUB?
