INCREASING OUR SHIPPING STANDARDS FOR ISSUE 2
As Kickstarter fans and collector's ourselves, we know there's nothing worse than backing a comic project and then having your rewards arrive damaged. (The car is broken down not your comic book)
After consulting with our backers, we've revamped our shipping practices to ensure your comics and collectibles arrive in great condition.
All comics shipped will be individually bagged with boards, and will be secured in Gemini Comic Supply Comic Flash Mailers, which provides impact-resistant protection.
Orders with multiple comics will be sandwich packed and secured for additional protection.
