How it Works

  1. Add the comics, books and magazines you are interested in to your Wish List.
  2. From the Wish List, choose the titles you wish to subscribe to by moving them to your Subscription.
  3. We will add the items to your Comic Cart once we have received them. We'll let you know when this happens via e-mail. All you need to do is pay for your whole Comic Cart (at least once every 6 weeks, but as often as you like), and we will quickly and securely ship them to you.

About SUBaCOMIC Loyalty Points

This is our way of saying "thank you" for being our customer. For every pound you spend (excluding shipping) you will receive 100 loyalty points. Those loyalty points will automatically be applied to your next order, saving you even more money! 100 points are worth 5p off your next SUBaCOMIC order (to be automatically deducted), and may not be exchanged for cash.


FAQ


How do I get 10% off at the Red Hot Comics website?

Once you have paid for and received your first order, drop us a message and we will send you a unique discount code. This code will remain valid as long as you continue to subscribe to, and purchase, at least 2 items every 6 weeks.


What is my Wish List?

Think of it as somewhere to put stuff for later! Add as many titles to your Wish List as you like - it does not commit you to anything. When you're ready to let us know you want to subscribe to a title (or titles!) then simply select which ones you want, and move them to your Subscription List.


What is my Subscription List?

When you're ready to commit to buying a title, you need to move it from your Wish List to your Subscription. Once it's in your Subscription, we will reserve a copy for you when it's released. You will receive an e-mail once your copy has been added to your Comic Cart. NOTE - if you delete a title from your subscription, you will not be able to add it again for 48 hours.


What is the Comic Cart?

This is a list of items we have received and that are ready to be paid for. You can pay for them online using PayPal, over the phone by credit / debit card, or at our Glasgow warehouse with cash.


Can I remove items from my Comic Cart?

No - Everything in your Comic Cart must be paid for together. However, you are more than welcome to remove items from your Wish List and Subscription at any time.


When do I have to pay?

Whenever you like! We will dispatch items once they have been paid for, and you will receive SUBaCOMIC loyalty points for all items that have been paid for. However, please note that we will only keep items reserved for a maximum of 6 weeks.


What happens if I don't pay for released items in my Comic Cart?

We will hold items in your Comic Cart for 6 weeks. If any item has not been paid for after 6 weeks, we will send you a final reminder e-mail. If we still do not hear back after another 3 business days, then we will remove all items from your Comic Cart and make them available to other customers. We will also remove all titles from your Subscription List so no further items will be added to your Comic Cart in future. We respectfully ask everyone to please pay for released items being held in the Comic Cart. If you cannot pay, please let us know as soon as possible.


Can I order variant covers and comics?

Yes, absolutely. However, we may not always be able to meet demand for rarer variants (e.g. 1:25, limited editions, etc.). In that scenario, we will give preference to subscribers who have had the title in their Subscription List the longest.


Can I cancel?

You are welcome to remove items from your Subscription whenever you like. All we ask is that you pay for any items that we are holding for you in your Comic Cart.


Can I remove items from my Comic Cart?

You have to pay for your whole Comic Cart at the same time. We do not allow customers to pick and choose which items they would like to pay for (however, as mentioned previously, you can cancel items from your Subscription at any time).


Please also consider the following:

1. If you remove a comic from your Subscription, you will not be able to re-add it for a period of 48 hours.

2. If you add the title to your Subscription again at a later date, you will then be returned to the end of queue for any special variant requests.


How do I pay?

We accept PayPal, or contact us between the hours of 10:00 -– 17:00, Mon - Sat on 0141 630 0049


Are my comics bagged and boarded?

Of course!
We use high-quality ComiCare backing boards and 3mil ComiCare bags (which are a higher quality than the 2mil versions most comic shops provide).


 

How are my comics shipped?

We use stiff cardboard mailers to ensure your items are received in the same new condition that we sent them. You can choose either Royal Mail 24 (1-2 business days) or 48 (2-3 business days)
