You Will Shed Tears of Joy!

Prepare to shed tears of joy, my fellow comic retailers, for I have discovered the Infinity Gauntlet of comic management – and it goes by the name of Manage Comics!

With Manage Comics, managing our subscribers is as easy as pie – and believe me, I’ve eaten a lot of pie in my day.

The interface is smoother than a freshly waxed Batmobile, and the user experience is so intuitive, you would think that Jarvis himself is running the servers (I’m still not entirely sure that’s not actually the case).

A Keystone to our Move to Shopify!

Manage Comics has been a keystone in our move to Shopify sales and instrumental in streamlining our check-in process.

The support from Brian and the team has been top-notch and I really can’t believe it took us as long as it did to make the commitment. Now there’s no turning back.

From Brian’s weekly livestreams to the direct support, Manage Comics is a no-brainer that I would recommend to any comic shop looking to maximize their time as well as their online presence.

A Must Have App for Shopify!

I was hesitant to move over to Manage Comics since I was used to doing everything manually, but boy am I glad I did. This streamlines the ordering & invoicing process.

Pulling books & ordering items couldn’t be easier now. Plus now we have more time to manage the other parts of the business instead of messing around with monthly catalogs 24/7.

Brian is always available for questions & support. Moving to MC was fast & easy. One of the must-have apps if you sell comics on Shopify!

MANAGE COMICS IS THE BETTER WAY TO SELL COMICS!

Manage Comics uses the power of Shopify to make selling comics easier than ever before. Our intuitive tools let you know who wants what, when they want it. Powers up subscriptions, and makes special orders simple.

Bob’s customers stay on his website!

Manage Comics is built right into Bob’s website, and every product page on his site has become a listing for comics subscriptions. Stock is synchronized between online and offline stock, and Bob can even select which items he shows on the site vs POS!

Bob knows there are other solutions that keep his customers on THEIR websites, but Bob knows that with the power of Shopify and Manage Comics he’s building his own equity and his Google search results are rising!

Bob is selling MORE comics!

Bob wanted to sell things on a website about as much as he wanted a mustard and cheese donut…which is to say NOT A WHOLE LOT!!!

Then Bob started noticing that folks were buying stuff from his store late at night, and not just this week’s books either, they were going DEEP in his stock. People were buying a graphic novel he had for 12 months, or a toy that was sitting around for 18 months.  He doesn’t even ship, they come right into his store to pick up…and often buy MORE things while they are there!

Bob says that his sales from his website were like adding a whole new location, without all the hassle.

Challengers Comics and Conversation

Absolutely frictionless way for your customers to buy and subscribe to comics.

We’ve been open for 14 years, and we’ve added more recurring customers in the last few weeks than we have over nearly any other similar period. On top of that, the team at Manage Comics is super-responsive to both bug reports and feature requests. It’s a constantly evolving platform guided by a knowledgeable team, based on a logical view of the comics retail landscape. You’re not the best comics shop you can be without an online subscription platform, and Manage Comics is a terrific solution.

Neighborhood Comics

Manage Comics makes our jobs as comic book retailers easier. Full stop.

Its integration with Shopify means that we can have a best-of-breed e-commerce experience AND empower existing and new customers to manage their subscriptions themselves. We know every comic shop is different. Manage Comics doesn’t force you to change the way you do business. Instead it exists as an additional tool for automation and growth. Brian and his team are responsive, courteous and dedicated to the platform and the direct market. Highly recommended.
