Our Subscription Service



Looking for the best comic subscription service in York and surrounding areas?
We are always accepting new subscribers.

OUR SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE:

While you’ll rarely ever find any of your favorites sold out here at Comic Store West, we know that it’s still nice to have the peace of mind knowing your favorite comics are waiting for you safe and sound for you to pick up.

Our subscription service is a free service that allows you to reserve any comics you’re following with us to pick up at your convenience.

Tired of forgetting which issue you picked up last? With our subscription service, you’ll never have to ask yourself “Did I get this already?”, as each new issue of your favorite monthly series will be automatically reserved for you in a mailbox with your name on it at our store.

We even offer a 10% Off Discount on all of your purchases, not just comics, here at Comic Store West when you’ve got a subscription account with us.

Sounds awesome! What Do I Need To Do To Sign Up? Stop in and fill out an info packet, letting us know what books you would like held for you each month and within 24 hours you are ready to go.

Are There Any Requirements? It’s a FREE service. No deposit, or minimum title count required. The only requirement we do have is that you pick up your comics at least once every 30 days. We understand that sometimes you can't make it in monthly, just kindly let us know and we will hold your books longer.

FAQ

Q: How Do I Pick Up My Subscription?

A: When you come to the store, just tell us your last name at the counter, and we’ll grab your pull box for you.

Q: Can I put comics in my box to hold for later pick up?

A: New Releases on your subscription list will be held for up to 30 days. Any comics not considered a new release, or not on your pull list, can be held for up to 7 days.

Q: My favorite writer left this comic, and it sucks now.. can I cancel my subscription?

A: Yes, just make sure to let us know via the subscription change form, e-mail, or in-person.

Q: What if I can’t pick up my comics within the 30 day window?

A: If you’re going to be longer than 4 weeks, please contact us to make arrangements for them to be held for you. If we don’t hear from you within 30 days, we will put the books back on the floor for sale, and stop adding new titles until you tell us to re-start.

Q: I don’t subscribe to _____, but it was in my pull box, do I have to buy it ?

A: Definitely not. One of our strong points is getting to know what our customers love to read, and we will from time to time slide a new series that we feel you may enjoy in your folder to try out. If it doesn’t look like you’re thing, or you have no interest, please just hand it right back to us. No obligations whatsoever.

While we get our orders adjusted YOU can help us by:

1) Making sure ALL the books you want are on your subscription list.  Even books that you just want to try for an issue or two.  We are happy to subscribe you to even a single issue of a comic series if you want.

2) If you do not have a subscription (why not?) get one.  Subscribers get a bunch of perks.

Batgirl Annual #3

In store now, you'll find Batgirl Annual #3:

Batgirl Annual #3
Batgirl Annual #3

And yes, "yay for Batgirl" and all that, but don't overlook this book just because you don't read Batgirl. This is really more of a self-contained crossover between all the non-Batman Batman titles. What's that mean?

  • Grayson
  • Catwoman
  • Batwoman
  • Gotham Academy

All of them make appearances in this story, so if you get any of those books, it's worth picking this one up. Heck, even if you don't get them, this is still a cool standalone story that is fast-paced and fun. Give it a try!

COMING SOON - Cards Against Humanity Design Pack


On order and should arrive in about a week, the latest booster expansion for Cards Against Humanity.

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Here's to Dick Sprang!

Dick Sprang, who was the preeminent Batman artist of the Golden Age, was born 100 years ago today.

It's here! Today! The #Sharknado has arrived!

Sharknado 3 premieres tonight at 9 on the SyFy Channel, and just in time, Archie Comics has released Archie vs. Sharknado:


You can read a preview of the one-shot over at ComicBookResources, but I checked it out when it arrived at the store, and it's just as fun as the movies have been. You know how people are constantly dying in ridiculous, over-the-top ways? How the rules of physics seem more like suggestions? All that happens in the comic, too. And remember, this is an officially licensed tie-in, co-written by the films' director: the events of Archie vs. Sharknado take place during Sharknado 3, so if you only watch the (sure to be terrible) movie tonight, you're not getting the full story.

So pick up the comic this afternoon, grab your Sharknado POP!, and settle in tonight as the entire internet makes fun of another cinematic masterpiece.

The "Ant-Man" Easter egg you might have missed

In 1979, Margot Kidder hosted Saturday Night Live, and one of the sketches was Lois Lane throwing a superhero party. And one of the guests is Ant-Man, as played by Garrett Morris:


Ant-Man is a movie about legacies, so it's incredibly fitting that the first man to ever play a live-action Ant-Man got a quick cameo in the film. Did you spot him?

Never worry, never fear, All-New All-Different Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is here!

When Marvel released that preview of 45 upcoming titles, a lot of people noticed the lack of any Squirrel Girl. Good news: the new series was announced today at the "Women of Marvel" panel:


Look for it in October!

D&D Attack Wing for Tiamat (7/25)



We've had some interest for the next D&D Attack Wing event (of course because the prize is Tiamat). We love new people but in order to win Tiamat you needed to be in the group that have played through the storyline leading up to this event.

New players are always welcome, just know while you can come in first for this event (and we will give you a prize) you can not win Tiamat unless you are one of the guys that have played throughout the storyline event.

The next storyline will be starting soon so stop in and grab your Dragons.
