‘In stock’ items are usually dispatched within one working day. If an item is out of stock and needs to be requested from our supplier, the order will be placed and you will be notified via email. Once an item has been dispatched, delivery is estimated within 2 to 5 working days. Please note that all items shipped can take up to 21 days to arrive from the date of despatch. If an item has not arrived after this time, or in the unlikely event that an item arrives damaged, please contact us.
What happens if I’m not home when you deliver?
If you are not available, the postal service or courier service should leave a card at the delivery address confirming that they have tried to deliver. Please follow the instructions on the card to rearrange your delivery or collect from the depot.
Can I pick up my goods from a store?
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to transfer website orders to the stores for collection.
Can I cancel my order?
You have the right to cancel your order within seven working days of your receipt of goods. If you wish to cancel your order, you must inform us in writing within the seven day period to arrange a return. All items must be in a resalable condition, unopened in the original packaging.

ACE Comics Subscriptions
How does the ACE Comics Subscriptions service work?
See ACE Comics Subscriptions: How It Works for an overview of the service and information on postage.
Can I use the same account for ACE Comics Subscriptions and the Website Shop?
No, the ACE Comics Subscriptions service and the Website Shop work in different ways, so you would need to create separate accounts to purchase items from both departments. The Website Shop offers a selected range of comics to purchase as one-off ‘Short Subscriptions’ (6-Issues and miniseries) as well as graphic novels and supplies, all with postage included (unless stated otherwise), while ACE Comics Subscriptions offers a much wider range of comics for ongoing subscription, utilising a postage scale.
Do you sell back issues?
Yes, we sell back issues
Do you buy back issues/ collections?
We do buy in collections and runs of older comics. If you have some comics that you want to sell, email us with a list of the titles you have for sale and the condition of each comic. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of collections offered to us, we are unable to respond directly to every enquiry, but if you have something we need, we will contact you within a week.
