Welcome to the new home for the The Uncanny Emporium!
I’ve run The Uncanny Emporium as an ebay store for over 20 years (yes, I’m that old) and still have a 100% positive rating. My username is babahex if you’d like to go and see.
I love comics and have my entire life. When I was around 13 years old I started collecting them in a more serious and organized fashion. In fact, part of what I loved about comics was organizing and looking after them. Bagging, boarding, and alphabetizing them seemed to bring me peace and comfort in what felt like a chaotic world.
At one point, I had over 10,000 in my personal collection. Many I own were bought as investments and have never been read.
Now, I enjoy selling them and sending them off to new homes where I know they will be appreciated and someone else can continue to enjoy and care for them. Unfortunately, things over at ebay have changed and I can’t abide by the endless fees they charge. Therefore, I have made the bold (and maybe stupid) decision to cancel my store subscription and just sell comics and other interesting things from my collection here on my own store.
I will continue to provide the same high quality grading, packaging, and shipping service I did there.
When it comes to grading, I am not certified but I always grade books thoroughly and then list them with a slightly lower grade so that you, the customer, are always pleased with the book when you get it.
With regards to packaging and shipping, I used a proper, expandable comic shipping box that can hold up to 16 comics. I also pad the package to protect the contents. Shipping for 1-16 comics is $25 CDN (approx. $20 USD) I am a proud Canadian and deal in Canadian funds.
Shipping includes tracking and insurance.
In my time on ebay, I’ve never had someone request a refund but if for any reason you are not happy with your purchase you can return it in the same mailer (at customer’s expense) to me and I will immediately issue you a refund.
Please check out my testimonial page for the feedback I have received over just the last few years and you will see that I am a straight-shooting, good purveyor of quality comics. It is my goal to continue to maintain my good reputation selling comics and other interesting things.
So look around or use the search function to look through my wares and please feel free contact me with any questions.
