I really like OPB a lot. They also do WhatNot shows once or twice a week where they auction off damages books. And a lot of the time "damaged" is just the slightest bent corner or some other insignificant thing.

I’m thinking of placing an order with In Stock Trades soon. They have some of the Sandman trades that are missing from my fiancée’s collection. They have the versions of most of the missing ones with covers that match her set instead of the newer editions that are more widely available. Never ordered anything from them but they seem to have pretty good prices.

They're slow but do have good prices.

Ditto on the above.

In Stock Trades is great. Awesome prices and they pack stuff perfectly. Always minty fresh and never jostled around and then arriving looking like ass ala Amazon shipping.

You may not get a tracking # or shipping notification and it may be a couple of weeks before you get something, but I have never failed to get anything I ordered from the unless they were just out of stock. And if something is OOS, they will always contact you before they ship to see if you want a refund or exchange it for something else.

My last few orders from Cheap Graphic Novels have gone really well. The shipping was a little faster than I expected, and the packing was good.

I've been really happy with them this year.

I pretty much buy trade paperbacks off of amazon but once in awhile ill buy something from the comic book shop like one of the thinner Walking Dead trades or an old Marvel Essential

IST had several shaky years there, but this year they've been fully on the ball.
...and arrived yesterday. Order placed and received within the same week. Packed well too.

My last omnibus order was ironically from Amazon because other retailers didn’t have it (Byrne Superman-Batman omnibus). No problems with the delivery.

It's surprising how often Amazon is one of the last sellers to carry new copies of large omnibuses. I guess most of the collector community doesn't trust Amazon's shipping, so they normally go with specialty dealers like InstockTrades first.
