I am only wondering because I want to get my son some comics but dont know if they are even posted in the system here or how to even search for them. I am not talking about the books that are like comics , I am talking about actual comic books.

Would it be against the rules to post in the bazaar that I am willing to give a credit for comic books?

 most people send out books by the cheapest way which is usually media mail.  comic books usually contain advertising and therefore not able to be sent by media mail.

"Would it be against the rules to post in the bazaar that I am willing to give a credit for comic books?"

And in answer to this specific question, yes, it is against the rules, nothing may be traded for a credit here except those items which are acceptable to be posted. Sorry. Check the Help Center, above in the banner, for postable, and you will a full array of information on conditions and guidelines, and at the bottom, will be a link to

What can be swapped here?

I had to ask because people post things in the bazaar that ARENT postable (arcs for example, they arent postable here either BUT people still offer them free with an order and that is what I wanted to do) but offer them free with an order from their shelf so I wanted to ask

Stephanie; Yes, you can offer them free with an order from your shelf if you would like, but you can't post them on your Bookshelf.  The same applies to ARC's.

Someone had a deal going in the bazaar a few days ago with a comic book offer.  Order a book and get 4 comics free or something.  You might want to look for that.
