From talking with friends it seems Online and digital are the way to go.

I buy my comics at two different stores one is local Great Escape I go there three to four times a month, they are always haveing side walk sells and they have a bunch of comics for $49 cents each so i get a chunk of my comics there, then i go to my other comic book store which is an hour away, i get my new comics there, he is nice knows my name and is always helpful, I always say if i can't find what I'm looking for at Great Escape then 90% of the time i can find it at the other one. my second comic book store is called Comic Vault.

unfortunately, i live a hour away from Belfast in Northern Ireland and from my knowledge there is just 1 comic store in the city. I have to order my comics from the internet mostly and it costs a hell of a lot due to VAT and stuff if i was to order a large shipment from America. I love comics, but this is a real hassle. Crying

I for the most part go to my local comic shop (heroshavenmc.com) they just opened in April so I get all of my subscriptions from there, I have a great relationship with the owner and quite a few times helped him in buy collections that people bring in to sell to him(I guess I'm kinda like an adviser that does not work there). I travel to other shops in about a 50 mile radius and the local flea market (where I have gotten expensive comics fairly cheap). I do buy back issues online either on Ebay, Amazon or here on CCL.

DCBS for me. My LCS is terrible about subs. Need a minimum of 10 titles and no discount whatsoever.

I mostly get my comics from the LCS, I like to buy local whenever possible. However the prices are cheaper when buying here on CCL.

If I buy issues that are coming out I go to my local comic shop. But if I'm looking for back issue's or variants I go to ebay, CCL, mycomicshop.com, comicspriceguide.com, or newkadia.com. But CCL buy far has the better pricing for the premuime back issues and variants.

I travel a lot for work, so I often pop into various stores around the country, to grab a back issue or two.

Locally (I currently live in Columbus) I visit: Black Hole Comics, Capitol City Comics, Comic Town & occaisionally Laughing Ogre (pretty high prices on back-issues though, roughly $1-2.00 higher across the board regardless of grade - and few are graded, good selection though).

On the web I purchase from stores here at CCL, MyComicShop.com, & Mile High, Ebay & Heritage Auctions. I trade with friends once in awhile, and I raid the 50-cent and $1 boxes at comic shows..... Gimme a good 50-cent longbox, and I may come home with 100 readable back-issues.

As I said, I travel a lot for work. Comic books are quick-easy-entertaining reads in an airport or hotel room. So, having a stack of 50-cent readers is awesome. I can enjoy reading an old comic, without being terrified and paranoid of devaluing it.

50-cent readers are my favorite comics!

You should ask Kingsman where he gets his books! He's from Columbus, too, and posts on a regular basis about some of the amazing things he finds for dirt cheap in this thread.
ComicVortex

Current specials:

Get some comics for 30% off
For every comic you purchase from our 'Bargain Bin' (those priced $1 or less), another comic purchased over $1 will be $30% off (refunded via PayPal). eg. If you purchase 10 'Bargain Bin' books, then 10 books purchased that are each over $1 will recieve this refund, etc.

Free Shipping

Every domestic order of 25 or more comics gets FREE SHIPPING (Media Mail). Though I can't provide Free Shipping on foreign orders, we do offer a $5 refund on postage for purchases of 25 or more comics to foreign countries or a $10 refund if you buy 50 comics (again, foreign orders only).

"A variety of places" is about the best answer I can give. LCS in hometown, when I go out of town, I'll hit up their shops, online @ CCL, some Ebay. I won't shop at one particular online comic store because of their customer service rep's horrible attitude..
Big signatures are REALLY annoying.

I pick my new books up from a local shop 2 doors down from where I work. For back issues, I will hit up the stores here on CCL if its something I don't need right away. I'm about an hour and 45 minutes from Columbus Ohio and occasionally hit some of the stores there. My favorites are Half Price Books, usually $1.00 or less per issue. I like Black Hole, although I have a hard time finding exact titles that I'm looking for. My new favorite Columbus shop is Worlds Greatest Comics on Westerville Road. Great prices and great back issues. My regular out of town haunt is In the Ballpark in Lancaster Ohio. The place is huge with well organized back issues and a friendly staff.

I use DCBS for current stuff. For back issues I use CCL and two local shops - Comic Book World and The Great Escape. I have also used MyComicShop.com, Newkadia and eBay a few times.

I go to local shops before hitting the net. But I do search the net all the time looking for hard to find modern comics and especially the early IDW's TMNT variants Big Grin

My "local" shop is an hour-and-a-half drive away Crying so the net is my friend. It saves gas and wear and tear on the car. Most of my new issues come in once a month on preorders from Midtowncomics.com. Back issues I pick up from Ebay, mycomicshop.com, another "local" shop that is even farther away than my regular one, and after the last couple of days right here on CCL. Great pricing on here. I won't save any money in the long run because I'll spend just as much but have a bigger stack to read Big Grin.
