We do not hold any stock on site and all products are held in stock with our wholesaler so don’t worry, if your order is still showing as processing, we’ve seen it and are waiting for your order to reach our fulfilment centre! Once an order has been placed, we will order your product with our wholesaler for next day delivery, it will then be dispatched from our warehouse the same day it is received.

If you have ordered multiple products, they will be sent out individually as and when they’re ready and you will receive a email update for each product ordered. Please note, you may receive your order across multiple packages.

We aim to get these to you on the day of release, however please leave up to 3 days before contacting us if your order has not arrived. If a pre-order is delayed, we will do our best to notify you by email as soon as we are made aware. If in doubt, we recommend checking our wholesalers front facing site, www.previewsworld.com for any updates on your orders release date.

Pre-orders

HOW DO PRE-ORDERS WORK?
Once you’ve pre-ordered an item, we will send a notification to our supplier asking them to allocate your pre-order to our account.

Pre-orders are shipped from the United States and only a specific quantity will come into the UK. We will always do our best to ensure that your pre-order is sent out on the day of release, however in some cases it may arrive 1 to 2 days later.

If your pre-order has not been received within 3 working days of the release date then please contact us through the contact form below or email us at info@scorchcomics.com.


WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PRE-ORDER DOESN'T COME INTO STOCK?
From time to time our suppliers scheduling and shipping dates can change, be delayed or be cancelled by the publisher or manufacturer.

If the release date of a product changes we will update it on our site as soon as we’re aware. If we cannot fulfil your pre-order we will contact you through by email as to the reason why and the next steps to process your refund.

On occasion, our supplier may not fulfil our allocation fully leaving us without sufficient stock to supply all of our pre-orders. If this is the case, we will fulfil as many orders as we can in order of purchase date.

We encourage you to get your pre-orders paid for and processed as early as possible in order for us to give advance notice to our supplier so they can allocate the correct amount of pre-order items.

Damages

MY ITEM HAS MINOR DAMAGE, WHAT CAN I DO?
We understand customers expect their purchases to be of the highest standard, or without minor/cosmetic faults. However, many products are subject to comic book industry accepted faults, such as spine creasing, printing errors, smudges, bleeding, and corner wear. This is a fault not directly because of our packaging or handling, but due to how they are received from our wholesaler.

As such, we cannot guarantee your orders will arrive in mint condition, and we do not accept returns or exchanges on products affected by very minor issues , however we use the finest quality bags & boards, packing and carriers to ensure your order arrives safely and securely!

All items are held with our wholesaler and we are unable to inspect any of our products until we have received them at our distribution centre. Once received, we will endeavour to thoroughly inspect all products for any major damage. If major damage is found, we will make a replacement order with our wholesaler and ship it out to you one day later. Sometimes there isn’t any more available stock, in this situation its best you get in touch and we will try and replace it through other means or offer you a full refund. Please see the returns section for more information.


MY ITEM HAS EXCESSIVE DAMAGE, WHAT CAN I DO?
If an excessive amount of imperfections/damage is found, prior to shipping, Scorch Comics will endeavor to acquire an immediate replacement. Please allow an additional 2-3 working days for this to dispatch, on top of our initial shipping date.

We will get in touch by email in order to resolve any issues you may be experiencing, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience you may experience.

MY ITEM APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN DAMAGED DURING SHIPPING, WHAT CAN I DO?
If your item appears to be damaged during shipping, please contact us by email at returns@scorchcomics.com within 48 hours of receiving your purchase.

We require high quality and well taken images of any damage to the packaging and contents of your order. This will allow us to process a claim with our shipping partners.

Due to processes out of our control replacements are dependent on availability, and we cannot always guarantee that we will be able to replace a product. In these cases, we will refund your order in full.
