Default Best place to buy GL comics online?

Hey where's yalls favorite places to buy GL trades online? I know most of you have good LCS you can go to, but I have none in my area and googling didn't really give me any eye grabbers.. So I figured I'd ask the experts.

I would go to www.mycomicshop.com since they have a massive selection of books. Plus you can sign up for the weekly email and you will get a code word you can input in and you can get discounts on back issues.

If InStockTrades doesn't have it, I then try Amazon.

That's usually after I try my LCS, I try to give them my $ before an online store.

I strongly second this. MyComicShop (aka Lone Star Comics) has been excellent to me. If my LCS doesn't have it (always go there first!), MCS picks up the slack.

There are four comic shops(that I know of) that are within driving distance here. I hit them all before ordering ANY comic online, but when I do, its InStockTrades.com

I have found excellent deals at http://www.midtowncomics.com/ .

I found the Tales Of The Lanterns mini-series (1st printings too!) in a bundle for a really excellent price a while back. They were in excellent condition! Great website.

I like them too. I also use a place in Maine called Top Shelf Comics (http://www.tcomics.com/), who ship fast and give discounts on orders over $100, but I've really drained their Silver Age GLs.

Thanks for that. I just filled in some gaps. Looks like a good site to me. Funny, though, they are the second shop I've used that refer to the Silver Age/Hal Jordan series as "Series 1." It's understandable (I guess) since so few are going to have the proper Series 1, but it can be confusing if you didn't know what you were looking for. Fortunately this site gives you pictures, dates, and credits.
