What is S.O.S anyway?
We can’t save your soul but our Standing Order Service (S.O.S) is designed to get you all of the comics you want, delivered to your door at a time that suits you. There’s no minimum quantity so whether you want one title or twenty, we’ve got your back!
Where do I sign up?
Simply register for an account on our site and subscribe to any title in our list on the Subscriptions section of our site then your standing order will begin immediately. We’ll do our very best to start your standing order from the next available issue of the comics you choose, though sometimes if it’s a popular title, it could be a little later, we’ll let you know if this is the case. If you need any issues that have already been published then contact us and we’ll do our best to find what you need.
We don’t expect any long term commitment from you so there is no deposit and no upfront fees like some other comic shops, we charge you on a set day once a month for the comics that you are subscribed to and then send them out weekly, every two weeks or monthly, that part is up to you. We do require a 2 month notice for cancellations as those comics will have already have been ordered for you.
How do I get my comics?
We offer free postage for all of our inland UK standing order customers, you can typically expect your package 5-10 days from the dispatch day.
All of the comics you order come pre-bagged and boarded contained in super safe packaging to ensure that your comics get to you in the best condition possible! If somehow your comics become damaged then get in touch and we will endeavour to sort them out.
If you live local to one of our stores then feel free to come in store to collect your standing order!
How Much Does It Cost?
With free postage, all that you have to worry about is the price of the comic! Almost all comics are priced in U.S dollars and we do our very best to keep our prices competitive. Below is a table of what we charge against the dollar:
$1.00 – £0.90
$1.99 – £1.89
$2.50 – £2.15
$2.99 – £2.95
$3.50 – £3.00
$3.99 – £3.60

$5.99 – £5.40
$6.99 – £6.30
$7.99 – £7.20
$8.99 – £7.99
$9.99 – £8.99
How Do I Pay?
Our payment systems are totally automated so you don’t have to worry about calling us once a month, coming online and paying invoices or even coming to a shop to give us some cold hard cash. Our standing orders can be paid for either by card or PayPal. Our website is secured with HTTPS so you don’t need to worry about somebody stealing any of your details!
If you’re unable to purchase the comics that you have subscribed to then don’t worry but let us know as soon as possible so that we can come to an arrangement, whether that is suspending your standing order temporarily or just waiting until next month.
Nope, that’s about it really but let’s have a little recap for those at the back:
1. Pick your titles from our subscription page;
2. Click subscribe now on your chosen title;
3. Go to your basket and checkout;
4. Set up monthly payments for your standing order;
5. Get comics;
6. Read comics;
7. Wait for more comics and repeat!
If you want to cancel any title or your whole standing order we ask that you complete the next two months as we will have already ordered those for you and that’s it, usually that will only be 2-4 issues more of the comic so it doesn’t cost a fortune.
If we’ve missed anything or if there is just some question that you need answering then e-mail us here or give our shop a call on 0208 460 8486.
