Naturally, i opted for Iron Man first.


What do you think of Mome? I'm still trying to decide if it's worth getting on a continual basis.

Nope, and I'm thinking everyone who's posted in the rama about receiving a notice is a DCBS customer. :cry:

Ahven't checked that thread, but yeah I figured DCBS customers would be getting notices.
Us MOCers will, maybe, get them tomorrow.

I got a notice from Heroes Corner about something.

I'm pretty sure it's just a Previews catalog but it's supposed to be here tomorrow.

So if the comics ship as fast as this one has I'm very happy. :D

I think Previews woulda come either with your comics or in the middle of the month.
So this sounds promising!
Is the weight indicated?

Well, I've already posted this at the 'Rama so most of you know but I got my notice from DCBS/UPS yesterday but it was only the billing information. My guess is that the actual box will not ship until next Monday, and that I'll see my new comics sometime after the July 4 weekend. That's cool, though, because I have more things to read than I may ever get to (as my wife likes to constantly remind me) and this gives me a chance to catch up.

DHL is horrible. The tracking number takes forever to work and the tracking isn't that great.

Since it shipped yesterday I hope I get it o Monday. I haven't gotten in on Monday in a looooong time.

While I agree that DHL is horrible (which is why I now use the UPS option through DCBS) it's likely DCBS's fault that the tracking number isn't "working" yet. They somehow seem to get the tracking numbers into DHL's and UPS's systems BEFORE they actually ship the BOC's. UPS might be a bit more clear on this, but I always get a "first" ship date, and then a revised one when the BOC is actually picked up by UPS.

I prefer UPS when I buy PC hardware from Newegg or something but DHL has been fine for my comics.

I live in Indiana (Evansville) so I do have to pay sales tax from DCBS.

:(

But on the plus side I get my shipments VERY fast since they are very close to me. I usually get my box within 2 days of shipping.

:D
