Its the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
And to celebrate, here is the 9th annual Dale Roberts Comics Holiday Sales thread! There will be 100s of books in this thread, hopefully something for everyone. The one constant is that everything will be cheap! I have bought literally thousands of books this year and the majority of books in this thread have never been listed anywhere else, not even on my website.  I have been setting stuff aside especially for this thread all throughout the year. There will be tons and tons of deals in this thread. Not only will everything be very tightly graded, but most books will be significantly discounted, some books up to 70% off of market price. 
There are keys, semi-keys, movie books, high grades, mid grades, and low grades, and as always, lots of books that you just don't see around, and almost all of it will be CHEAP, heavily discounted in some cases! Lots and lots of bargains for the collector, and room for dealers to make money. Lots of Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson, Jim Steranko! Frazetta covers, Raboy covers, Schomburg covers, LB Cole covers, GGA, Pre-code horror, Pre Hero Atlas, and cool Romance books that you just don't see.  I can't imagine that you won't be able to find something you are looking for at a very good price.
 I will be listing several times in December and the thread will wrap up in early January!   Invoices will be sent in early January, and no shipping will occur until that time. So even if you don't have enough cash right now, you have about 1 month to save up for your purchases. As always, payments will be due at the end of the thread. I will not be mailing books prior to that time. 
As always, Satisfaction is Guaranteed. If you don't like any book, you may return it for a full refund. 

Rules -  :take it: is king! I welcome reasonable offers by PM, but not 30 seconds after the book has been posted. And no editing of I'll Take its. If you click it, its yours. Please no conditional I'll take its. Just causes confusion. 
I'll take it is trumps over PM, unless deal has been completely agreed to by me. No probation listers. 
Payment - Paypal is the preferred method of payment, but I will accept checks or money orders. I also do time payments on purchases (combined or individual) of more than $500.00 but please contact me for terms PRIOR to dropping the takeit.gif.4000621d043fb630765a362297f5f448.gif. I prefer NOT to draw payments out more than a couple of months, and if you do time payments with me, you can't be buying other stuff on the boards, while I am waiting for your payment. And typically speaking, I don't do discounts and time payments together.
Shipping - I will ship worldwide. I use Fed Ex on large shipments and USPS Priority for everything else. USA Priority shipping begins at $8.00, and goes up from there. I do not use first class shipping for international. Priority mail is the only option, unless you clear it with me first.
Thanks for looking and get ready to grab some books!
