How to Buy

The information below should answer any questions you might have about purchases. However, if you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

How to Place Your Order: If you wish to purchase one or more books listed on the site, please either send me an e-mail at and/or call me between the hours of 10:00 A.M. EST and 7:00 P.M. EST at 202-498-0011.  Unless urgent, please use e-mail to first contact me during weekdays. As I am a practicing attorney it is sometimes difficult to respond to telephone calls during working hours. Thank you for your courtesy and understanding.

Payment Methods: At this time I accept, personal checks, postal money orders, bank cashier checks, wire transfers, and paypal. I am currently exploring the possibility of accepting credit card payments. All checks and money orders should be made payable to EsquireComics.

Pricing: Every price is potentially negotiatable. All prices listed are in U.S. funds and only refer to the comic book itself. Any additional charges, such as shipping and handling, insurance or sales tax, are detailed below.

Payment: Unless alternative arrangements have been made, payment must be received within seven (7) calendar days from your order. Failure to timely submit payment will result in the book being made re-available for sale. All payments must be made in U.S. funds.

Shipping Policy: Please allow three to five (3-5) business days for the shipping of any ordered book. For orders over $1,000.00, I will cover shipping and insurance for all deliveries within the continental United States. For overseas orders, please contact me first for associated costs. For orders under $1,000.00, I will arrange per your preference to ship via FedEx or the U.S. Postal Service. If payment is made via personal check, the order will not be shipped until notification is received that the check cleared my bank.

My Return Policy: I certainly believe you will be happy with your purchase. However, your personal satisfaction is very important to me. If for any reason you wish to return your purchase, you may do so. In fact, unlike the vast majority of dealers, I am even willing to accept returns on CGC graded books. However, you  must notify me in writing within three (3) calendar days of receiving the book that you desire to return it, and you must ship it back to me within seven (7) calendar days. All associated costs for returning the book must be borne by the purchaser. And, of course, the book must be returned in the same condition it was received.

Grading Guarantee: As noted above, any book may be returned if dissatisfied, even if CGC graded. I do not endorse any third-party grade assigned to a particular book. Any books sold on this site that are known to be restored, pressed or underwent prior enhancements or modifications will have that information openly disclosed.

Time Payments: I am willing to entertain time payment plans for sales over $1,000.00. No interest will be charged. A non-refundable deposit must be made, and all books will remain in my possession until full payment is received. Please contact me to discuss specific terms.
