So DCBS has actually moved pretty fast with this. They've already imported all of the data from the MOC website.

Naturally they now show that I have stuff outstanding from 2, 3, 4 years ago.

Mitch meant well when he bought MOC, but he was not good at data/websites. :smt011

I'm guessing DCBS is picking up most of, if not the entire, bill for shipping comics to MOC customers for the next 2-3 months. That's a hell of an expense to eat, hopefully the influx of new business offsets it and they aren't over extending themselves. From the most recent update, it sounds like they probably had to pay to get the 1/8 books shipped from MOC to Indiana today so that they could get those sent out to customers along with the rest of January books next week.

Well, I hope DCBS is getting some money with this operation. I'd hate to see them taking a loss.

It's a long-term win regardless for them to have their biggest competitor out of the way and to take most of their customers to boot.

But I follow the same rule. My choices will be the two Oni books, Archaia's, the Molly Danger book, and Atomic Robo.

Oh well, I just hope DCBS stays in business.
Without them I could never afford the comics I buy.

And no, Midtown, Westfield, and TFAW have never done as comparable a discount.


Amazon with their free shipping and 37% discounts I'm sure remains a very real competitor, so there's that.

Right. I don't get a ton of monthly comics but that would probably drop even further. I'd go to the LCS for Valiant titles and that's about it I'd guess.

Most of what I get are monthly comics.
And 90% of the comics I buy can't be found here in Perú.

So, again, I don't know what I would do without DCBS.

Yep. You'd be screwed.

I'd have to go back to my LCS. I don't want to do that.

Haven't been to a comic store in a long time.

Well, I could buy comics in MidtownComics.com but the discount is only 15%.
