Online Hold Box

Online subscription Hold Boxes help ensure you get the books you want at an even better price, and delivered straight to you!

Hold Box Benefits: discount off new comics, trade paperbacks and most pre-order items. All comics ordered with an Online Hold also have all their books bagged and boarded. Discounts start the first week you order!

Subscribe to 5-9 monthly titles and get a 10% discount.

Subscribe to 10 or more monthly titles and get 20%!

Here are the 3 requirements to getting a Hold Box:

  1. Subscribe to at least 5 MONTHLY TITLES. You may add and subtract as many titles from this list whenever you'd like to make a change. Miniseries and one-shot may be also be added, as long as there are a minimum of 5 monthly books in your selection.
  2. A $20 deposit. If WE cancel your box at any time, we keep your deposit. If YOU cancel your box and there are no debts remaining, then you get that deposit back!
  3. Empty out your hold box at least once per month. New books come out every Wednesday, so every week you should have something in your box to look forward to!

HOW YOUR ONLINE HOLD BOX WILL WORK:
  • All comics sent through the Online Hold Box Service come BAGGED AND BOARDED to help protect your books during shipping.
  • On Mondays you will receive an email with a list of all comics we will be getting that week (barring any damages or shortages from Diamond). If you see anything on that list you would like to add, just reply to the email. On Wednesdays you will get another message with a list of all your titles that we pulled for you. If you are ready to have them shipped, just reply and we’ll send you the invoice.
  • Shipping costs tend to be about $3-4 when shipping in the US, depending on the weight of the box. We ship all books USPS Media Mail, which is the most affordable way to mail your books. Non-book items are subject to different shipping costs. International order can vary depending on your location. 
  • If you are in the US, Online Box Holders have up to 4 weeks before they have to ship their box to better help you maximize the shipping costs. If you are living outside of the US, you may maximize your shipping and wait until you get to a full shipping box (about 25 comics) betwen orders. Can’t wait that long? Just let us know and we’ll get you the books you want when you are ready for them, be it weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly.
  • If you are running behind and can’t pay, CONTACT US and we can make arrangements that work for both sides. We are always willing to work with you, but you have to let us know before it gets to be too late. 

If at any time you are under 5 titles a month, we will ask you to add more books to you pull list. If you do not, your service may be stopped.
