New AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 Preliminary Cover Arrives|
next email newsletter March 10, 2014
The news of our radical restricting of our website list prices continues to spread very rapidly throughout the comics world. With most of
our back issue prices
now only half of what they were three weeks ago, and our 50% off SWEETHEART codeword slashing those prices even further, we are being inundated with website and eBay orders. Sales in our Jason St. Mega-Store have also nearly doubled, so word of our lower prices is clearly getting out in the Denver area as well.
What this means for those of you who shop with us online is that you will need to be patient in waiting to receive a confirmation from us that the order that you placed with us has actually shipped. We have added two new staff members since our comics prices were revised, and also shifted over two of our inventory team members to help with pulling orders, but we are barely keeping up with demand. On average, we are still needing about one week to ship orders. If you do have any question about your order, please feel free to call Joshua, in our customer service department, at 303-455-2659. He is in his office Monday - Friday, 8-4.
In other news, we just received the black and white sketch cover of our upcoming
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (2014) #1 exclusive Mile High Comics variant edition.
Our logo has yet to be positioned on the cover, but I already like it very much. If you look at the cityscape behind Spider-Man, the degree of detail is incredible! Reminds me of an early Todd McFarlane cover...
Amazing Spider-Man #1 Mile High
Our exclusive Mile High Comics Spider-Man variant releases in four weeks, just prior to the release of the new Spider-Man movie. I do believe that we will sell out of many of our copies of this cool new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 on Free Comic Book Day (May 3rd), so I highly recommend that you advance order your copy today through either Greg, or Mario, in our new comics subscription department. They can be called weekdays 9-5 at 303-455-2659, or you can send them an e-mail request at
The advance order price on this double-sized issue (featuring the return of Peter Parker) is only $14.95, with a limit of five copies per buyer, please...
In related news, our
MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER #1 Mile High Comics exclusive
releases on this upcoming Wednesday. Greg and Mario are still accepting advance orders at $14.95, but only through Tuesday, at noon. As of Wednesday, we will need to bump the price up to $19.95.
Magnus, Robot Fighter #1 Mile High
My final item for today is a quick reminder that I will be buying comics in the areas near New York City (NY, NJ, PA, CT) from March 18th - 25th. I already have six private collections to view, but I do still have time for a couple more appointments. If you would like me to consider buying your collection, contact our head back issue buyer, Pam Brandle. Pam is setting up my meetings for me, and knows my current schedule for that week. Pam can be called at 303-455-2659 weekdays 9-5, or you can e-mail her at

P.S. I forgot to mention that our print run on our Mile Comics variant edition of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 is currently set at only 3,000 copies. That may sound like a large number, but when you consider that the Platinum Variant to SPIDER-MAN (1990) #1 had a much larger print run of 10,000 copies, and now retails for $100 - $300, it puts things into better perspective. You just cannot go wrong adding limited edition Spider-Man #1 issues to your collection...
