I've never really bought any graphic novels from either of these sites can anyone recommend them?

Just with my birthday coming up i'm after some 2000ad stuff that isn't on the 2000ad webshop and i see both of these sites have both 2000ad and other stuff i'm after

Rekaert - Yes, he demonstrates it with bullets, punches and sentencing.

I've bought from Forbidden Planet once or twice and had no problem if that helps.

forbidden planet are fine - I've used them many times - but be aware that a lot of what is on their website is not held in regular stock and has to be ordered in when you order.  That means there can occassionally be a lead time of a few weeks before you get your order which they don't warn you about.

yeah that's what i was worried about tbh 

I've sent them an email regarding the book's in question before i buy them.

That was the trouble i had buying ace trucking co book one from waterstones  in the end i got it from  the  2000ad shop which i should have done in the beginning. I just don't fancy the same runaround.

I've found Forbidden Planet good value but pretty variable on delivery and time. Customer service is pretty poor too. All that said if you're not in a rush the price can be very good.

I've bought some 'Serenity' and 'Firefly' things from TFAW and they've been great - really quick delivery and reasonable p&p...

My two cents: I ordered CF14 from Forbidden Planet at a low price, waited ages and then they emailed me to tell me they didn't have it in stock. Serves me right for being a cheapskate. At least they refunded all my money immediately without a fuss. Since then they've been sending my dad (I used his address) catalogues full of home decoration and evening wear suggestions he can't comprehend.
