I was supposed to get the follwing in to day from Midtown, now scheduled for tomorrow. UPS shipped my packages from Michigan to Southern California, then from Southern California to Kingman, Arizona then back to Las Vegas. Not sure why they went back across my state twice just to get to me, although i understand there are major shipping hubs they have.

5 Midtown Variant ASM 700
1 regular cover ASM 700
12 Avenging Spider-Man 15.1
2 ASM 699 1st
14 Nowhere Men #1
31 Image Firsts Walking Dead #1
5 Image Firsts Chew #1
1 Happy #3 regular
1 Happy #3 Variant

I guess it really sucks being on the West Coast and ordering from New York with the cheapest shipping option, especially when you're trying to unload some scorching-hot Spider-Man books as quickly as you can to get in on the market rush. Grrrrrr.....

Yea that would bite..You know there used to be more than just graham, midtown and dynamic online comic sales, most must have gone under, or just do the magic the gathering now.

Yeah, you might consider paying the extra bucks and getting it Priority. I'm in Indy, and it still takes them a week to get me my stuff on Economy. I typically don't mind though as it's usually nothing I need immediately.

I know, I guess I never have seen a time where buying a few books and needing to move them within a few days ever mattered, I usually buy books that I figure I can sell three to nine months down the road for a good profit, not IMMEDIATELY!

Also, I guess since this order was just a few days after Christmas and just before New Year's with the weekend in between, they took about four extyra days to process and ship, so it was a double-whammy on this one. I'm not worried, I'll do just fine on my sales, should pay for a good amount of my expense to the Amazing Arizona Comic Con in a few weeks (only to repeat the cycle of tying up a ton on money on books that I get CGC'ed and have to wait months to make money on again).

Same here. My order was just a few days after Christmas and not received yet. And I'm down in Georgia. NY to GA should not have to take this long
Except I have no idea where it is because Midtown's tracking never works hahaha

Just got finished going through all the books that came in. I am very happy with the quality. I have at least 7 total from Clone #1 that will be 9.8 or higher! Some beautiful books. Perfect spines and edges no a single tick to be seen anywhere.

If anyone has Nowhere Men #1 they know that this will be a bear to get in 9.8. Ink roller marks transfer onto white gloss covers very easily, but I still got 3 issues I know will 9.8. Over all I was very impressed with the books I got from Midtown this order.

The only thing in my stash that I see having a potential of hitting anything more than a 9.8 would be my ASM #692 J Scott Campbell Variant.
