Plus the sweet discounts!


You're right! Brad Walker did the pencils with Palmiotti doing the inks, it looks like.

Speaking of Kerschl, he does one of the best/most beautiful webcomics out there. Check it out: http://horhaus.com/abominable/

That is really cool.

I really like the personal touch that Heroes Corner seems to offer.

I emailed them a few weeks ago about what bags and boards they used for shipping and they were more than happy to make sure my comics were put into silver age ones instead of the modern ones.

Yeah they really seem to be going "above and beyond" to win people over.

The only 2 problems I have with them is that they don't take Amex and they use FedEx Ground who left my first (unofficial) BoC at my door for the whole world to see.
I'm just lucky MoneyMelon and JZA weren't around my neighborhood that day.

My biggest problem with both DCBS and HC is that they don't take AMEX. I would maybe try out their service or split up my order to get the best deals but I don't want to have to get another credit card to do it.

I thought I was the only guy who preferred Amex over Visa/MC. Yeah, it bugs me that DCBS doesn't take Amex too... But I'll live with it for their awesome discounts. For the same items, HC is still $20 more expensive for me. You do have to like their personal touch, though...

I use my Amex for everything I can.
They have a better rewards system for airline tickets.
(Or...at least it's been the one we've used and we're too lazy to research the options)

The points are awesome, but I usually use mine on gadgets.

Hopefully sometime this week I should be receiving my next BOC...

I just used my points to purchase four round-trip non-stop cross-country tickets. It cost a ton of points, since I did it outside of one of the airlines that you can transfer miles to. That's the downside with Amex. If an Amex airline is not the hub either where you live or where you're going, their point system isn't that great. Also, you have to pay a fee to be a member of membership rewards, so it's even less valuable...

Really?
We have Blue; I'm pretty sure there's no fee and we can use the points with any airline.

No fee, but the points cost is high. Its a points per dollar thing. I forget what it is, but it winds up being more than a 20,000 mile/20,000 point frequent flier ticket. The good news is that you're not restricted by date, etc. as frequent flier tickets can be.

Work.
I haven't had anything sent here yet and I don't know how that'll go over, but since they use FedEx ground, I'd rather take my chance with the mailroom guys getting pissed at me than my BoC sitting on my stoop waiting for me.
Bob did say that if they ever ship anything with USPS, they send it to my home address.
