How to Subscribe with Comic City

Local Store Pickup Only

Step 1: Register an account

First provide us with your name, phone number, email address, and mailing address in the form below. Be sure to enter the correct store location where you will be picking up. We order books specifically for subscription files, and you have to pick them up where your file is. Your base store cannot fluctuate from one to another. The office use location is for internal store processing, and is not a customer option.

Step 2: Select Your Titles

Choose your favorites from our massive list of titles broken down by publisher and imprints, including comics and magazines.

Titles that are not listed in the online system may still be available, but requests should go through your base store, to check availability and if a deposit is necessary. The online subscription system is not a shopping cart, it's only to manage your monthly comic subscriptions.

Once you've selected your titles, you'll need to hit the "Activate" button to make your account live!

Please be sure to review the Terms & Policies below prior to placing any subscriptions. Use of our subscription & ordering services will be considered acceptance of the terms & policies.
