    Thanks for that, Seb. I was kinda' hoping you would chime in on this topic as I know you have a major interest in comics (and a pretty impressive collection to boot!). It's good to know that I can just jump in anywhere, and that there are numerous purchase options. I noticed that a fairly large portion of the TFTC tv episodes are based on other EC comics such as 'The Haunt of Fear' and Shock SuspenStories', so I'll be sure to try a few of those too. Although I'm open to specific recommendations too.

    As an aside, what would you say are the best websites to order from? I had a quick look on a few forums but some of the main suggestions either no longer seem to exist, or don't deliver to the UK.

    Currently liking this new 'Alerts' feature. I may have missed a few replies without it.

    Depends what you're getting, really! For trade paperbacks that are still in print, then all the usual bookshop or Amazon (depending on your preference) methods are good. Or Forbidden Planet is good for online. If you're after in-print stuff and you have a local comic shop, though, then if they're not unfriendly/unwelcoming then supporting them is a good idea - they'll always be able to order stuff.

    New single-issue comics - again, local shops are the best first port of all. If not, I find a combination of eBay and Forbidden Planet serves me well for just-released stuff if I can't find it in the shops.

    If you want out-of-print stuff or back issues, it gets trickier - there's not so much of a thriving market for those as there was, so most brick-and-mortar comic shops don't have huge amounts of back issues any more. There are exceptions - Dave's in Brighton has a spinoff shop full of them, always good for a browse. But aside from that, if you're after old issues of things then the best bets are usually to browse eBay, comic marts and conventions, and a few other online places. Incognito Comics is a good UK-based one for back issues, I've ordered stuff off there before. There's an American site that's quite good too, though I can't remember the name of it offhand! I mean, there are several, but there was a particular one I used where the service was good. If I can find the promo mouse mat they sent me, then I can remember the name and give a link.

    (However, when it comes to old stuff, I don't often order online unless it's an issue I desperately want quickly for some reason. For me, the fun of collecting is having a list of stuff I know I want, and browsing through boxes and boxes before stumbling across something that's on it!)

    Currently a bit frustrated with my dad after he left his wallet in Cheyenne then didn't bother to realize he'd done until we'd made it to Loveland.
