OldGits Comics & Books is an independent bookseller catering for readers, collectors and students of Graphic Fiction, graphic novels and comics... but not exclusively. Browse our listings you will also find a selection of fantasy art books and sci fi books, as well as hundreds of issues of fanzines, comics journals and similar magazines.
We tend to stock items the OldGit himself enjoys , which means underground and alternative books and comics predominate....but not exclusively.
We know how good it is to receive a parcel with a new acquisition, and we always ship within one business day of cleared payment. Postage to UK addresses is often free; but if you are overseas or have paid for UK postage and you buy more than one item there is always a discount for postage: I always combine postage where practicable and charge the actual label cost, or very close to it.... no extra for the new ebay commission fees on postage or the paypal fees on each transaction, and nothing added for packaging/handling.
One proviso.... some multiple purchases will have a different carrier or postal service for reasons of insurance, parcel size or similar, but always savings.
It is often worth either asking me for a quote prior to purchase (but that risks someone nipping in before you), or asking for payment details after purchase which prompts me to produce an invoice with the true postage on it. I am also always happy to re-invoice if you decide to add to any order.
We use the Overstreet Grading system to summarise an item's condition: a Google search will usually throw up several illustrated summaries of the definitions.
The OldGit himself is a life-long collector-dealer, and was to be found stalled-out at UK comic marts and cons for nearly forty years till age caught up with him and he started the internet business in January 2004.
From very small beginnings, the business has now grown and developed an excellent reputation with eBayers (check out our feedback).
RETURN POLICY: We aim to supply fine condition items and describe condition carefully. We package so the books will arrive with you in the same condition they left us. If any item...Auction or Shop *Buy It Now*.... is materially not as described we will take it back and give 100% refund, including your return postage: (but in the unlikely event there is any problem please contact us first by email to see if we can sort it without an ebay resolution case , which would still be there as a fall-back in any case.)
Shop *Buy It Now* items are also a special case as you have a legal right to return a *Buy It Now* article within seven days of date of receipt for any reason (or even for no reason at all!). This has never yet happened, but if it did we would accept your return within seven days of date of receipt and refund the purchase price and postage, but not your return postage to the shop, unless the description was wrong, in which case we would refund completely as above.
It is rare but has occasionally happened that a Royal Mail delivered item has become "lost in the post". Nearly always the packet arrives after a delay: I always ask the buyer to be as patient as possible and allow some extra time for the Post Office to get their act together. If it has not arrived four weeks from the day I posted it then we can safely assume it never will, and I will make a complete refund to you. This is a hundred percent promise, and you need have no concerns that you will ever be out of pocket. In the unlikely event of a possible non- delivery please contact me and discuss before opening any case in the ebay system.
