What is Ash Avenue Comics?

What is Ash Avenue Comics?

Owner Drew Sullivan opened Ash Avenue Comics in 2003 to provide a laid-back, friendly, judgment-free place for long-time comic book enthusiasts and new readers to enjoy perennial favorites and discover new books to treasure. The mission of Ash Avenue Comics is to provide a destination shopping experience for a wide range of comics, from mainstream to small press and independent publications, with as large of a selection of comics and graphic novels as we can fit in our shop.

Do you sell anything besides comics?

Yes! We also offer toys, apparel, and posters.

Where are you located?

Ash Avenue Comics is located at 806 S. Ash Avenue, at the intersection of Ash & University, across the street from Whole Foods Market.

Oh, no! I’m reading this outside of your scheduled hours. Do you have some sort of online shopping option?

Yes, thank you for asking! Our new online store is up and running, with diverse and exciting books being added all the time. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, e-mail info@ashavenuecomics.com and we’ll see if we can find it for you in our brick-and-mortar store.

What’s your shipping policy for that online store?

Your comics will be mailed 1-3 business days after purchase via USPS First Class or USPS Priority Mail, depending on shipping weight. All of our comics ship bagged and boarded. International orders, if available to your region, will ship via First Class International Parcel Service. Orders of $100 or more are eligible for free shipping within the United States.

What’s your return policy for online purchases?

All sales are final. Exceptions will only be made for items that are damaged or lost during shipping; in such cases, once we have verified the loss or damage to the item, a refund will be issued.

I see all the books in your online shop are graded. Are you professional graders?

We are not professional graders and don’t represent ourselves as such. We do our best to grade our books according to the industry-standard Overstreet Price Guide grading scale (re-printed here on Heritage Auctions’ website). We provide scans of the actual product you’ll be receiving (except where noted) so you can see for yourself. If you have additional questions, e-mail info@ashavecomics.com.

I can’t find the book I want to buy at your store. Can you special-order it for me?

We are always happy to place special orders for our guests! However, please understand that if your item is out of stock at the distributor level, there may be a wait for it to arrive back in stock or it may be permanently out of print.

Can you help me send my books to the CGC to be graded and slabbed?

Not at this time, but we are exploring this as a service to offer in the future. Stay tuned!

Ring, ring! Hello, I found this old comic in my childhood dresser when I went to see my mom last weekend. Is it worth anything?

Maybe? The value of a comic depends on its condition, and we are unable to make that kind of determination over the phone. Even if the comic looks like it just came off the rack, other factors such as demand will influence its worth. If you believe you have a valuable comic, please e-mail info@ashavecomics.com to set up an appointment with our buyer.

Do you buy old comic collections?

Yes! E-mail info@ashavecomics.com to set up an appointment with our buyer.
