With me writing ever more articles on comics history, finding reliable sources for great old back issues (ie. research!) is a necessity. Quicksilver Comics is one such source. They provide an excellent service with super-fast delivery. In addition to that — and possibly more important for the budget-minded journo — they don’t charge very much! They currently have a fantastic discount scheme running whereby if you order above certain thresholds you get big, big discounts. A major buyer like myself can walk away with 50%-off deals. With a fully-automated online store that allows you to choose what grade of back issue you want, you can’t ask for more. They stock in-depth too — you can usually find a copy of just the comic you need.

The guys running Quicksilver couldn’t be friendlier and are quick to respond to any queries. All in all it’s a fabulous service, and one I’m happy to recommend.
