Pow Vintage Comics

Has anyone here subscribed to this service? I’m thinking about it, but I’d like to know if it’s any good.

Here is a link to their web page. I am a little wary of it, so I was hoping someone who has subscribed could give me a heads up on it:

Just saw an ad for boxed heroes. Is that any good?

If you want my advice, don’t sign up for ANY of these subscription services. Retailers like these buy old collections in bulk and end up with a lot of dollar bin fodder that they know they can’t get rid of normally. They create these subscription services to unload the books they can’t sell. You may get lucky and get something cool/valuable every now and then, but you’ll end up spending more on comics you could get much, much cheaper in the long run.

If you’re into buying older comics, here are the three places I’d suggest looking:

  1. eBay- This is your best bet. You can find just about any issue you want and, usually, at multiple price points. This is where those retailers unload the GOOD stuff.

  2. LCS’- Your local comic shop and their dollar bins or back issue bins will provide much better value for cheap.

  3. Comic Conventions/Shows- Few and far between these days, but these big events usually have multiple vendors with good stuff. Some cheaper than others.

I get the appeal of subscription services, but, unless you really enjoy the surprise, they’re not worth it. You’re just taking unwanted back stock off a retailers hands.

Thanks. I have got some pretty good deals through the mycomicshop.com value packs. Its 30 comics for 15 or so dolars give or take. So I’ll just stick to that.

It’s nice to at least raise this issue, since it does appear that there’s some catch. Thank you all for your help.
