Member Spending Tiers
Each spending tier includes all these great features above but is completely free if you had spent $50 or more on your shipment.
However, if you had spent $49.99 or less on your shipment, you will pay a $5.99 membership fee that either 1) pays for a heavily discounted Cartel Box ($25 or more spent) or 2) pays for bags, boards and handling ($24.99 or less spent) depending on the amount you spent on comics in each shipment.

Make sure you are getting your comics how, when and where you want them. The page is pretty self explanatory so head on over there.
SEE WHAT COMIC ISSUES YOUR GETTING & WHEN
You can see what issue your subscriptions are starting with by going to your Releases section. There you will see issues for your active or inactive subscriptions broken out by release week. Look for a yellow banner in the corner of the issue cover, this represents the issues you will be charged for. The issues that don't have this banner you will not be getting automatically. If you want these you will need to purchase them when after they are released and add them to your subscription shipment via the "Add To My Subscription" shipment option at checkout.
You also can check your Order History to see what you’ve purchased and what subscriptions you’ve been charged for. Now if you’re ever thinking, “oh man...I wonder if I’m getting Computer Beach Party Monster #12 this month?” you just go to one of these and check it out.
Frequently Asked Subscription Questions:
Do I have to choose a tier?
Nope! You become a Cartel Member after you choose to receive the subscriptions you've added to your pull list from us by setting your subscription settings, adding a payment source and entering your shipping address. You don't have to select or do anything further than that.
When will I get charged for my subscriptions?
You will get charged every Thursday for comics being released 3 weeks into the future.
Why won’t I get the next issue being released?
We have a deadline (called Final Order Cutoff or FOC) where we have to send in all comic book orders to the distributor and it's roughly around 3 weeks ahead of an issue's release date. If you aren’t getting the next issue of the comic you subscribed to, it’s because you added it past it’s FOC deadline, so you’re starting with the one that comes after that. But you can purchase the issue when it's released and choose "Add to my subscription shipment” though.
What if I decide I don’t want a series?
Head over to your Pull List, find the series you'd like to discontinue receiving and switch the "Active”to "In-Active". This will essentially pause your subscription allowing you to pick right back up without any waiting period if you change your mind.
You can also click “Unsubscribe” on the title you no longer want but if you ever re-subscribe you will have to complete the waiting period as if you started a brand new subscription.
Will my subscription start with issue #1?
Only if it’s a new comic and your subscription is activating on issue #1. If it’s an older comic, no. For example if the current issue of the comic you want to subscribe to is on issue #25, you won’t start with issue #1. The comics industry just doesn’t work that way, sorry. Look into your Releases section to see what issue you’ll start with. The previous issues to most series will be collected in editions called trades (or graphic novels) that you can purchase. Search the site to see if we have them or request a special order from us using our in-site messaging system found in the bottom right corner of this window.
How many premium storage boxes will I get per order?
You must buy $50 worth of comics to get a free storage box. If you fill that box, you get another free box. The box fits anywhere around 15-18 depending on how thick the comics are. So we say you get another one after you “Fill the first box” ... we know that’s a vague term but it’s impossible for us to know. Please see the membership tiers section at the top of this page for more details.
The exception to this rule is deeply discounted purchases. To get a second box when you've purchased comics that are deeply discounted will need to spend another $50 for the second, third etc. box.
Do I get my books every month or every week?
It’s your choice! We offer both monthly and weekly shipping in your subscription options choose monthly shipping to save a little dough and we’ll ship them to you at the end of every month. If the weekly shipping cost doesn’t bother you, subscribe choose that and get them every week.
How long will it take to get my comic books?
Depending on where you live typically 1-3 days after processing. Unfortunately, in rare cases, it could take up to 5-7 days due to things such as uncontrollable USPS delays etc. You will always receive a tracking number for each shipment so you can keep an eye on it both in your order history (full tracking info) and emailed.
How fast is the speed of light?
Awesome, we love science! The speed of light in a vacuum is 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second), and in theory nothing can travel faster than light. In miles per hour, light speed is, well, a lot: about 670,616,629 mph. If you could travel at the speed of light, you could go around the Earth 7.5 times in one second.
