Default DF comic book wanted - help please!

Hi, guys, I have a favour to ask of you, if itís not any problem.
I was looking for the Dragonflight 3 Ė volume comic book, but couldnít find it (Hans will remember me asking about it). So, if anyone has a spare in e Ė shape he wonít be sad to depart from, or has a god scanner and can send them so they can be read on the screen, I would be very grateful to him / her. Just let me know, and you can send it to my e Ė mail address. Thank you so much

I think we'll have a set of the Dragonflight comics as a prize for McCaffrey Quest in a few weeks, so you might want to try for that!

I donít think I will be participating in that, mostly because I donít know the rules, and I have a lot of work and can not possibly be ready in time. But, thank you anyway, Cheryl.
Does anyone else have an offer?

You want all three volumes? I think I have two of the tree as spares for sale.

Didn't I point out that there are many of them offered on eBay? Couldn't you find any?

I know about them, Hans, but I donít think they can sent them to my, because I tried a couple a years ago to order a book. And, anyway, Iím not much of an Internet buyer. I donít like buying thing that way. Thank you anyway.
Which parts do you have?

Talisath, I have got #1 and #3 (the left and right one in the first picture in the highlight: http://forums.srellim.org/showthread.php?t=2910) in unread mint edition.

I was looking to buy #2 on eBay to be able to sell a complete set.

Well, if you get a complete set, please, let me know! I wouldnít like to buy volume by volume (especially if Iím missing the middle one).
Youíre speaking of selling: in what conditions would you be wiling to sell them? Iím not much of a book collector (Iím a layer Ė Iím nothing of a book collector), so what would you ask for them.
Thank you, Hans, youíve been a great help, but, like I said, Iíll see if anybody has the complete set and is wiling to sell them. And, again, like I said, itís ok if theyíre in e Ė form or scanned. Thank you all!

Talisath, let's get one thing straight, I'm a friend of Annr and an honest guy, so you'll never get them from me in e-form or scanned because that would be illegal.

As for selling, I'd sell them for what seems reasonable and that probably is more or less the average of prices which are asked on the market (read: which you see on eBay).

The problem with me selling to the US is that postage is relatively expensive, although that might not be too bad for these as the volumes are not that thick nor heavy.
To give you an indication: there's a complete set for sale right now on ebay and that goes for $25 ex postage. The seperate books start at $2 and the more expensive ones at near mint are $9,60. So for the two volumes I'd be selling I would be thinking of about $7,50 a piece I suppose.
Unfortunately the missing volume seems to be the rarest and currently not offered on eBay.

As for postage: the two comics erigh 255 grams without packaging. This means that they'll fit in the 250-500 grams slot when safely packaged. And that wil cost 10,45 euro = $15,60 postage!

There's also the three in one omnibus that's has been published in the UK. But if you won't buy on the internet that'll be hard to get. And that isn't curently up on eBay either.

Anyone else? I forgot to say, but Iím sorry if anyone takes offence in me asking for the comic book in e Ė shape or scanned. I didnít know thatís illegal. Again, Iím sorry, and if anyone has an other offer, I would be very happy to hear it. Thank you!

Would you like me to have a look for you on the internet? I can happily do a trade if you would like me to find it for you. Think about it and let me know.

Mawra, you're in luck as I do have books 1 and 2 in the Freedom series and quite happy to trade for something AMC related if you wish to swap I'm looking for a few titles myself from different authors as well. PM me when you're ready.

Jube, that is very nice of you, and I would be very grateful, but, unfortunately, I donít have anything to trade. I can pay you their cost on the Internet and the shipping, if thatís ok. Let me know! And thank you very much for the offer.

Golden Talisath, I've found one (Dragonflight #3) that is reasonably priced at $6.50 and I've paid for it but for some reason you've chosen not to accept private messages so I have no idea of who or where to send it when I received it or to arrange payment and p/h. Yikes! You'll need to set your MoM file up to allow pm's so that you don't have to publish your snail addy on the web. Otherwise it'll be offered elsewhere and I don't like breaking my promises if I said I was going to help someone out with it. Please help me out so I can help you out. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I can also get the 3-in-1 version and #1 but unable to find #2. Hans would be your best bet for #1 and #2 if he still has them available and someone else hasn't put "dibs" on them. I wouldn't be surprised if someone has already as it took me awhile to find anything on the graphic novels / comics - there is about 10 listings on ebay and that's dependent on whether one is looking on the UK, US or Aussie version all up. I forgot to add that a complete set is available for $24.99 US dollars.

Hmm, as to how to get in contact with each other without making email addy's public....you may need to ask Cheryl or Hans for help on that part or look in FAQ's to see how to fix up private messages.

Just had a look myself, click on Quick Links, in the menu that pops up, go down to edit options and when it comes up, scroll down until you get to private messages and tick the enable private messages, at the bottom, it'll say save changes, click on it and then we can pm without too many hassles of making private info, public, so to speak. I really hope that helps you out Talisath.

That's okay, no problems as I've now officially received a pm from you Learn something new everyday Merely passing the help the next person baton along, one day it'll be you helping someone out. It's okay if I don't make much sense sometimes as I do shiftwork but I'm honestly glad that you've been able to work it out though. HOORAY!
