I heart comic books

I have been collecting comics since I was in fifth grade.   During college my habit decreased, only to come back in full force.  However, getting to the comic book shop has always been a drama.   Back in the late 90s I became friends with some guys in the industry who told me about a mail order service called Jacey Services.   I’ve used them ever since.   I pick standing titles I want to get every month(Walking Dead, Fables, etc) and they show up in a package at my door, including a 15% discount off the cover price and no tax.   It’s brilliant.  Every month you get emailed a file.  Open it in the Jacey software and you see your standing orders plus you can click any new titles you want to check out – click a button and submit your order.   If you get the book Previews as part of your order you see art and listings for comic books coming out in 3 months.   The guy that runs the service is named Jack and he owned a bookstore in Pennsylvania which he shut and now exclusively does a monthly(or weekly if you like) comic book service.

If you try it out, let him know I sent you.   I’ve been getting comics from him for 15 years now!  And leave recommends for comics in the comments section.   Some currents I’m getting:  Detective Comics, Fairest, Hinterland, Punisher, Constantine, Coffin Hill, Manifest Destiny, Walking Dead, Fables, Wolverine, Shadow, Dead Boy Detectives, Sandman Overture – among others..

  7. What would be the best comic book? One that ended each issue with, “Join us next time for another exciting adventure with Reed Tucker, Big Wayne, and Laaaaazlow!”

  8. Check out Locke & Key & Crossed, Lazlow.

  9. I steals all mah comics and read them on comicglass on my iPad. #even better

  10. You should totally get into reading Judge Dredd. NOT the new IDW American bullshit though, the British 2000D/Megazine series is where the action is. Might need some of the collections for the backstory, but totally worth it.
