This swap is for fans of graphic novels, manga, and comics. I love sharing great books and I also enjoy trying new titles. If you’re nodding your head while reading this intro, then this swap may be for you! I’m not putting any theme restrictions on this first swap since I’m not sure how much interest there will be.
The goal for this swap is for each participant to select one graphic novel, manga, or comic trade paperback from their current collection to send to their partner. As usual, the package should contain a brief note with the name of the swap and why the sender chose the included book.
Ideally the selection will match your partner’s profile, but ultimately this is sender’s choice, so please keep that in mind when rating.
I hope participants can just pick something off their own bookshelf, but if you want to support your local comic shop, bookstore, or used bookstore, that’s great too, please just try to keep spending under $10.
You may be wondering if single-issue comics (aka “floppies”) are okay to send. It’s best to share a complete story, so if you are sending individual issues please include a full story arc, like the 5-6 issues that would be included in a typical trade paperback. If you have any questions about whether or not a particular book qualifies, just send me a message and I’ll provide guidance.
For participants, I recommend using USPS Media Mail since books can get heavy and it will make the postage much more affordable. Recipients, please keep in mind that media mail is usually slower than first class delivery by a few days, so please be patient.
Newbies are welcome as long as their profile is well completed. Established swappers should have a 4.9 rating or better, with no unexplained or unresolved 1 or 3 ratings. I also have a shelf full of great books to share so I will angel if necessary.
