Hello everyone!

Needless to say but these are trying times for all of us. I hope that you and your families are all staying safe and healthy. Life here in the Hall hasn't changed dramatically as I work from home anyway. But this disruption is affecting everyone and I have had to make some adjustments as you might imagine.

The Governor of Virginia has enacted a Stay at Home policy for the next two and a half months. So unfortunately I will not be shipping as fast as I and you are used to. Right now I am thinking twice a week at least, Monday for sure and then once again sometime between Thursday and Saturday depending on how many orders I get. As soon as All Clear sounds it will be back to business as usual.

I can assure everyone that I have been symptom free so far and like I said before I work from home. I also have a warehouse in a self storage facility that sees maybe 10 people per day come through there, including the facility managers so no worries about that. The Post Office that I go to has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure public safety as well.

I know that this is a very tough time for everyone and I am expecting fewer sales as people have more pressing needs right now than comic books. Completely understandable especially since I too have been cutting down on extraneous purchases.

One thing I know for certain is that this thing will be beaten eventually and we can all go back to our normal lives. Whatever normal means. Tongue So I am going to keep pounding away listing comics and we will get through this together. When we do I will have some amazing reading material for you!

OK, here's the good news/bad news part.

Good News! Got another box listed, mostly Marvel and DC filler from my Velocity Comics connection meaning quite recent books. Also took the time to merge all of my recent-ish additions so now my Inventory is much easier to access.

Bad News. Sad Actually, not so bad! It's just that I won't be able to list anything more for a week or two. My comic Bag & Board supplier is out and is actually one of those businesses affected by restrictions so it will be a while before I can re-up. I do have a few hundred ready to go but not enough to list new stuff with. In the meantime I will be focusing on eBay (got a new batch of Star Wars action figures going up!) and I do have a long box or several of Silver and Golden Age comics and plenty of Mylar B&B's ready to go...Think

Anyway thank you all for supporting me and the other Stores here on CCL. My sincere wishes that you and your loved ones get through these unprecedented times safely.

See you on the other side! Wave


Long Boxes Listed = 9
Boxes Needed To Reach Goal = 17



Hall of Heroes 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.

Got a short box up. 220+ G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero from Marvel including a number of hard to find issues from late in the run.


Long Boxes Listed = 9.5
Boxes Needed To Reach Goal = 16.5


Working on another short box right now. The bulk of it is Bronze/Copper Age Superfriends from DC and a bunch of assorted EC Comics reprints. The rest of it is random stuff like Simpsons Comics and spinoffs, Preacher, Master of Kung-Fu.

Stay safe and keep watching!

Got it! Another half box listed.

Next I am working on a long box of Gold and Silver Age comics.

DC
Anthro
Bomba
Real Screen Comics
Showcase
Spectre
Star-Spangled War Stories
Superboy
Superman
Unexpected

Marvel
Conan the Barbarian
Daredevil
Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos
Strange Tales
Sub-Mariner

Indy
Blue Bolt
Boy Comics
Classic Comics/Classics Illustrated
Daredevil (not the Marvel one!)
Little Audrey
Real Clue Crime Stories
Three Stooges
Undersea Agent

...and many more!!!

I am going to try and have them graded, priced and listed by Friday. It takes me a longer time to do these older comics because they are worth more for one thing, I don't want to mis-grade or over/under price them. I also spend more time looking at each comic than I do with modern ones as there is just more that can be wrong with them and I strive to be as accurate as possible.


Long Boxes Listed = 10
Boxes Needed To Reach Goal = 16


Thanks for reading! Wave
