Earlier this month I posted about North Carolina retailer Silver Bullet Comics closing down their physical store and moving to strictly online sales.
Since then, a few of our readers have posted comments about ordering comics from Silver Bullet, being charged and never receiving their books. Inertia is one of three people to comment on it:
I actually placed an order with them online on July 30, received confirmation that my credit card was charged and the order processed on the 31st, and I still have not gotten any shipping notification nor have I gotten what I ordered. Two emails to their support/feedback addresses have gone unanswered so far. I can’t recommend that anyone do business with them in their online incarnation either… I will update this if I ever receive any response from them.
I tried to visit their site this morning (to find an email address and get their side of things) and received an error. If someone from Silver Bullet would like to drop me an email about the order delays, I’ll gladly add an update to this post. Update: You can read the response form the store’s owner, W, Alan Davis, here.
EDIT: I should add that Silver Bullet Comics, the retailer, shouldn’t be confused with Silver Bullet Comics, the news site, which features news and columns from Park and Barb Lien-Cooper, Brandon Thomas, Beau Smith and Tim O’Shea, among many others.
