Happy May everybody!

Yesterday, May the Fourth, I celebrated my 50th birthday by going to see Star Wars IV: A New Hope at the Altria Theater (AKA The Mosque) with the Richmond Symphony playing live during the film. Pretty cool event!

Now, back to work! I just listed the first of the Velocity stock. That's the new comics I just picked up from Velocity Comics. First two boxes contain most of the "A" comics - Action Comics, Adventures of Superman, Amazing Spider-Man, Aquaman, Astonishing Ant-Man and the like. Did not quite get to Avengers yet but that will be coming soon.

Actually, this week I won't be listing any more of the Velocity stock because I am waiting for bags and boards to come in. Instead I will be replenishing my Gold and Silver Age stock. I have several thousand of those from a myriad of publishers, not just Marvel and DC. Although there's plenty of that!

I'm also going to be adding to my eBay store Hall Liquidations a bunch of G.I. Joe and Cobra action figures as well as some comic book related items that are not eligible to be listed here.

I am also making official a policy that I have been doing for a while. If you want to buy something from here and my eBay store then I will combine shipping. Not only that, but my Free Shipping option of $25 or up will count toward the combined total between the stores. So if you buy $15 here and $10 there I will ship together for free!

Quick Announcement: The last two weekends of May, 18-19 and 25-26, I will be out of town. Once again my services are required at The Blockhouse Disc Golf and Country Club (most call it The Grange) for their annual Too Many Days in May tournament. Both weekends I will be cooking lunch during the afternoons and a dinner on the Saturday nights. Not only is it a lot of fun I will also make a hefty profit from the sales. I may have to go on Vacation Mode sporadically as I will have a ton of work to prepare for each weekend.

Thank you all for reading this and I hope that I can serve your comic book needs!

Enjoy the rest of Spring!

Howie

STORE POLICIES

Free S&H for orders of $25 and up.
- This option is for Media Mail to the US only. I have separate pricing for Priority Mail and International orders

ALL Comics come bagged and boarded - Gold and Silver books will always come in Mylar bags no matter what cost or condition. Some other (but not all) high dollar comics will be in Mylar as well. If you want all of your books in Mylar please send me a PM.

Every* order ships in a cardboard box
*International orders ship in a Flat Rate Priority Envelope with cardboard packing - if you want 6 comics or fewer it might be cheaper to use First Class International, please send me a PM.

ALL orders come with free tracking or customs form number information - Also, I only mark an order as "Shipped" after I have dropped it off with the Post Office. Notification will be sent as soon as possible thereafter, usually within 24 hours.

Grading - I do my best to grade judiciously and impartially. If you have a disagreement with a grade I have assigned to a book then please contact me with your concern. I am not perfect. I make mistakes but I would never intentionally misrepresent a book's condition. I am always trying to improve and graciously accept constructive criticism.

Fast Shipping Promise - All orders will ship no later than the next business day or you receive a free comic of my choice. Friday orders will ship no later than Monday. Sometimes I am able to ship on Saturday but not always. If your order is in before 3PM it will usually ship same day.

International Shipping Program (ISP) - If you want to buy something from a CCL Store that doesn't offer International Shipping I will buy it and then send it to you for a nominal fee - 10% or $5 whichever is less. You DO NOT need to make a purchase from my Store in order to use the Service. Please send me a Personal Message with details.

Combine With eBay - If you want to buy something from here and my eBay store then I will combine shipping. Not only that, but my Free Shipping option of $25 or up will count toward the combined total between the stores. So if you buy $15 here and $10 there I will ship together for free! Please make sure you send me a PM (Personal Message) here to alert me that you have ordered from both platforms. Please do not contact me on eBay for this offer as I'm sure they would probably frown upon it.

If you are a Newsstand collector feel free to PM me and I will let you know if my copy for sale is newsstand or Direct.

I return Feedback when I receive it. My reasoning behind this is until I hear back from you I don't know if you have received your package and if you were happy with it or not. If you leave me a Rating and I don't reciprocate please remind me. I stay on top of it as much as I can so it's usually not a problem. If there is a problem that causes you to consider leaving non Hero feedback PLEASE contact me and allow me the chance to make things right.

I will provide scans upon request. If you want one be sure to send me your e-mail address and I will get it right out.

The next few weeks are going to be very busy in The Hall. I am catering for frisbee golf tournaments the next two weekends at the Blockhouse Disc Golf and Country Club and the first weekend of June I will be serving lunch for a women's event.

The Blockhouse (used to be called The Grange until copyright lawyers got involved Shame on You ) is a really cool place out in Spotsylvania County here in Virginia. It's private property and the guy who owns it maintains two 18 hole disc golf courses and an 18 hole tiki course. There's a swimming pool, video game arcade, disc store and tons of camping spaces available. A lot of people play in the tourney and stay overnight so it usually turns into a party on Friday and Saturday nights especially when the live music starts! Party They also like to play "glow golf" where you put lights on your frisbee and the tiki course is lit up with miles of Christmas tree lights and they usually start playing at around 10PM.

What I will be doing is preparing lunch on Saturday and Sunday in between rounds and also cooking dinner on Saturday night. I have been helping various people over the years and last year I was asked to take it over. I think I nailed it. Straight Face

I did a great job last year but made a few mistakes. Now that I now better this year will surpass what went before.

Anyway, I might have to go on Vacation Mode if I get too busy with preparing. I will do my best to ship every order as quickly as usual and if it takes longer than a day to ship then I will honor my Guarantee of a Free Comic!

Enjoy the rest of the month, I will get back to listing regularly in early June. Thank you all for the amazing support! Big Hug
