Hello, and thanks for visiting Empire Collectibles!

Our goal is to provide collectors with a resource for Pulp Magazines, Comic Books, and other fine collectible items. Strict grading is the key to success in our mission. Pulps are graded according to Bookery Fantasy's Ultimate Guide to the Pulps. Comic books are graded according to The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. Please refer to their most recent edition. We are currently in the process of adding a number of sacns to our website. The scans will be of books with a value of $60.00 or more, in various conditions. Please check back often, as new scans will be added over the next few months. The scans will offer a good representation of our grading.

We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. The only exception to this are comic books which have been graded by the Comics Guarantee Corporation (CGC). CGC graded book sales are final and, therefore, nonreturnable.
