    <bump>

    I'm bumping this thread because of amazon.com delays. I had my order for Rising Stars (HC) tied inot my order for best of spider-man volume 5. That came out in early July. Rather than see that my order for rising stars would need to be done earleir, amazon mailed me to say that the order would be delayed, would I be OK with this? They then shipped BOSM 5 to me separately, despite telling me that this is exactly what they wouldn't do because of the porhibitve cost of international shipping.
    Scr*w it, I went down to one of three comic-book stores in dublin and paid 70 euro for Rising Stars, cancelling my amazon.com order when I got back. Its now sitting shrink-wrapped on my desk tempting me to open it (I won't I'm waiting until I Get it home instead.
    Looking forward to reading all 24 issues though - espsecially after some poeple compared the 4400 with it, I really liekd that show and am still patiently awaitng season 3.

    Awhile back I posted that I bought the Rising Stars hardcover (limited slip-cased) edition off of Ebay (which I'm starting to dislike more & more) for CHEAP.

    Top Cow released two hardcover editions: 1) regular hardcover containing all 24 issues, and 2) limited slip-cased hardcover edition.

    I got free shipping from the Ebay seller. But, you're all the over in Ireland. The seller was offering free shipping for US customers; I don't know about international buyers' costs.

    Update: The limited edition I bought retails for $99.99, but I got it for $45.49 & free shipping.

    I just checked the Ebay seller, they do ship internationally, but you have to contact them.

    I'm not sure if it's within the guidelines of the forum to post an Ebay seller's name and info. Jan?

    bumping thread

    Comic book prices - a european/American comparison.

    I've just ordered the complete rising stars collection from amazon.com. I did want to get it from my local Comic Book Store (Forbidden Planet) but...
    1. They only had the softback trades - now not to get down on softback trades, but if I buy a comic I want it to last. I have the collected best of spiderman volumes 1 - 4 on my bookshelf and they are all in hardback (and look great BTW).
    2. These paperback trades (containing 8 issues each) were 20 euro a pop, that's almost $30 each, rounding out the whole thing at $120, almost three times what amazon.com want for the collected harback.

    3. If I did get them to do the collected harback for me (ordered from the UK) it would be 45 sterling, or 72 euro. Even with expedited International shipping it's still cheaper to get it form amazon.
    so,
    Do people find it's cheaper to import comics (Especially hardback collecteds) from another country than to buy them at your local store?
    I'm bumping this into the Rising Stars thread because it was this that inspired me to think this way. I tried to support local merchants, but I'm not paying 80% more for the sake of it.
    So,
    any thoughts people?

    I don't either, philos. Maybe you could post a note to JMS over on the moderated newsgroup?

    @Jan:

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Surely, I ordered a hardcover copy in March but till now my lcs didn't get one. I don't believe it came out in June despite amazon's information.

    In Amazon Germany the hardcover's release date is September, 30th.

    But I do not find any information on the Top Cow's website.

    What happened to the hardcover edition?
    According to Amazon.com, it came out in June. It shows a shipping time of 3-5 weeks, though, so apparently they don't keep it in stock.

    Amazon RS hardcover

    Oddly enough, though, the trade paperback for volume 3 of Rising Stars still shows that it's not released yet.

    Have you asked your comic shop if they ordered any?

    started a topic Rising Stars collection

    Rising Stars collection

    I almost hate to mention this, due to the competition it might create, but did you all see the two new Hardcover collections of Rising stars in the new Previews?

    I've got the two trades, the third one's coming and soon I'll be waiting on the hardcover...

    Woo hoo!
