Almost there! This crazy upside down year is coming to a merciful end and I have got to think that the next one will have to be better. I mean, can't be worse right?

Here in The Hall it has been business as usual - listing comics and toys! I snuck in two long boxes over the last couple of weeks and am working on another right now. The newly listed are more Collection Fillers from the 80's til now. There are some hidden gems in there!

Next up is a Batman Box. Bunch of mini-series, Prestige Format and other bat related titles. Lots of Joker stuff for some reason! Clown Devil This should be live by the end of the week.

I have so many comics to sell that I always have a tough time deciding what is going up next. My unlisted inventory is vast and diverse so I keep trying to bring a healthy mix in. Might be a Poll on the way. Think

Regrettably, I do have some news regarding S&H. My shipping prices have remained the same since I first opened ten years ago. Sadly, the USPS has raised their prices since then. I do not make money off of shipping and I'm not trying to. I am merely trying to come closer to breaking even. I know it's not your concern and I hate to even bring it up but it is solely a business decision.

Starting January 1, 2021 my base shipping will increase from $3.00 to $3.25 and the Free Shipping threshold will go from $25 to $27.50. I am also streamlining International Shipping. Those prices fluctuate so often that I am implementing a Request Shipping Total option so that we can get an exact amount due so as to avoid an over or under charge.

Thank you all very much for understanding this difficult decision. I will continue to give you the excellent service that you all deserve and promise that I will keep providing you with choice comics at low prices and graded well!

I will definitely do something special for you very, very soon! Keep watching the Forums! Cool

Long Boxes Listed = 30
Boxes Exceeding Goal = 4



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.

Batman box is now up! Almost 250 comics featuring Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, Catwoman, Joker and more!

Dozens of Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight and lots on various other mini series, one shots and Prestige style.

Dark Knight Strikes Again, Batman Versus Predator (all three series), Legends of the Dead Earth Annuals, the War Games crossover, Knightfall, more along the same lines.


Long Boxes Listed = 31
Boxes Exceeding Goal = 5


Not exactly sure what's next but I think I might do a box of Gold/Silver Age. Those take me longer to grade than more recent books but I might be able to get one done by the end of the week or early next week just in time for Christmas.

I will let you know what to expect...Think

Thank you all again for being such fantastic customers! I'm the #2 Seller currently on CCL! Could not do it without you. Enjoy the Holidays! Big Hug

It is official. Next box up is Gold and Silver Age comics. Dancing

It will probably take until next week to get them up. I will try to have them done by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. These obviously take longer to grade than Bronze or Modern and I want to make sure I get it right.

As with every other Gold/Silver comic I sell these will also be placed in Mylar. These are almost all mid to low grade books so you won't be seeing many Very Fine ones but that also means that they will be priced lower.

Quick rundown: 80 Page Giant Magazine, Army Attack and Army War Heroes, Atom, Batman, Brave and the Bold, Captain Marvel, Captain Savage, a whole bunch of Flash and some other cool stuff.

I will try to post pics of the choice items when they go live.

This might be the last box I send to the Live Market this year. The week between Christmas and New Years I am planning on doing eBay. No worries, I am planning on a HUGE 2021 and I will be back listing in January.

I hope that you are all staying safe and making the best of things. Let's all have a happy holiday season, whichever you celebrate! Party Big Hug Kiss

I have finally gotten them all graded! Took a while but I always want to make sure that I get it as close to correct as I can. Almost everything is in the VG to FN range. There are some real beat up books and a few extremely nice ones.

Pics are forthcoming once the comics are live which I am hoping will be by tomorrow. I will do my best!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Big Hug Kiss Dancing

Done! Dancing

218 Gold and Silver Age comics have been sent to The Hall. I will post some pics here: Hall of Heroes Recently Added

Some of them have already sold!

Please make sure to look at the Market Info for these older books. I don't have notes in all of them but I do try to list certain defects like detached cover/centerfold, writing or ink, pieces missing, water damage and other things. If you have questions about anything or need more scans I will happily respond. If you want scans you have to send me your e-mail address so that I can get them to you.

Exceeded my goal this year so I will have to come up with a new one for next year. I have plenty of room and a sizeable backlog of unlisted inventory just raring to go so I will be going full bore starting anew in January. I will detail me plans at that time.


Long Boxes Listed = 32
Boxes Exceeding Goal = 6


This is the last box I will be listing this year. Next week will be spent replenishing toys on eBay. Right now I'm putting up Star Trek action figures. Huge variety, everything from the Original Series through Next Generation and into Deep Space Nine and Voyager.

That's adding to my already extensive items for sale like Star Wars, G. I. Joe, Masters of the Universe and comic book heroes.

Lot of cool stuff, click here if you are interested: Hall Liquidations

***Shipping prices will increase slightly starting January 1st. Hate to do it but it is an unfortunate inevitability - see top post for details***

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and everything in between! Let's hope for a bright and shiny new year with happiness and health to all! Big Hug Kiss Big Hug Kiss Big Hug Kiss Party Dancing Winking
