Please email me next time if you have problems with these orders. I am willing to work with all my customers on these issues. I have had pretty good rating so far and nobody else has complained about the conditions being way off. Also the reason why they are so cheap is becasue point blank I am trying to get rid of them. I dont have the time or energy to sell them at higher prices and screw consumers with shipping and I dont have the room or time to collect comics anymore. I personally cannot control shipping but I make sure these comics are bagged, boarded and reinforced with more padding.
