I really don't think your work will mind you getting one package a month and if they do that's pretty ridiculous.
Yeah, it should be okay.
But if I quit or get laid off (both of which or are becoming more of a possibility each day) I'll have to either work out something with FedEx or switch back to MOC exclusively.

I feel like shipping places in New York must have some paperwork you can fill out to have all packages shipped straight to their holding facility.

It can't just be a worry for you about having packages stolen.

My man here is right. Plus if you quit or get laid off you won't have to worry because you'll be home when they deliver your box-o-comics. ;)
SHABBA!

What great service. Next month I'm going to see how their prices measure up to DCBS, they've been blowing me off for a while.

How do you decide on what to get in trade as opposed to single issues?

Is it just that you get your favorite stuff in singles so you can get a dose as quickly as possible?

I'm more of a singles guy, but If I get things in trade, it's stuff that's more self contained.
For example I'd be more likely to get Bru's Captain America in trade since I see that standing the test of time as a self contained work, while something like Mighty Avengers is heavily reliant and has references to things going on in other books.

For the most part I buy monthlies for comics that I think won't sell very well. Cap and Detective are exceptions, Cap is too good to wait and I'm a huge Dini fan.

I don't like switching from comic to trade or vice versa so titles I really like I keep buying as trades; Robin and Ms. Marvel for example.

And as for continuity heavy stuff I decided to trade wait because I'm sick of crossovers but I still want to read it. :D

Got my shipping notice from MOC.

It's coming media mail so who knows when it will be here. :(

I'm curious why they still haven't shipped Walking Dead Vol.8 to me when it came out in June. :evil:

Just got a shipping notice from ComicBookSuperMarket.
I'm assuming that's MOC's back/current issue site.
