Mr. Fantastic tries to communicate telepathically with Spidey's alien costume but has no success.

Learning that the Hobgoblin is still alive, Peter dons his classic red and blue costume as Spidey prepares to face his old foe.

Shipping from Canada

I generally offer 2 shipping methods - the cheapest option DOES NOT include a tracking number. If you want tracking, the higher priced option is the CHEAPEST method that I can ship to your location with a tracking number.

For Canadian customers, the only method I offer includes tracking - if you DO NOT want or need a tracking number, let me know and I can quote you a cheaper option - Oversized Lettermail (unfortunately, not an option available for calculated shipping)

Shipping to addresses in Canada usually take 5-10 BUSINESS days. To the US, it's usually 7-14 BUSINESS days, and internationally can be anywhere from 10 days-4 weeks, depending on the destination.

Also, please be aware that books shipped outside of Canada must pass thru customs, which could add additional delays and fees not covered by any free shipping offers. I will combine shipping costs on multiple items, as long as the items were won within 3 days of each other.
