ARE YOU THE SAME PEOPLE WHO HAD A STORE IN CROWN POINT, INDIANA?
That's us, John and Christina, the couple behind Screaming Monkey from 2002 - 2008.
We missed you. We can't wait to see our old friends, as well as our new friends.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
21 Ridge Road - Munster, Indiana. We're right across the street from the Strack & Van Til's.
WHAT DO YOU OFFER AT YOUR STORE?
We will be focusing on new comics and comic subscriptions, trade paperbacks, action figures, gaming supplies, and other pop culture goodies. While we have no plans to carry sports cards, sports memorabilia, posters or DVDs at this time -- if we have a supplier that carries it, we will happily do special orders.
DO YOU OFFER A PULL / SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE?
Heck yeah. Whether it's one monthly comic you're after or a hundred titles.......whether you want to stop in every week, once a month or you'd like your books shipped to you anywhere around the world.....we will order what you want and make sure you get it. Our SUBSCRIPTION service is currently active, please reach out to us if you'd like to start a subscription with Screaming Monkey.
I WANT TO BUY STUFF, BUT I DON'T TRUST PAYPAL WITH MY CREDIT CARD. IS THERE ANOTHER WAY I CAN MAKE A PURCHASE?
You can always visit the store in person. We'd love to see you. But if you're out of our area, just give us a call. We can charge your card here in-store if you'd prefer.
I'M BUYING SOMETHING OFF OF YOUR WEBSITE. WHAT ARE THE SHIPPING COSTS?
It varies according to weight and whether it's domestic or international shipping. But not to worry, we're going to break it down for you here.
We register all of our comics (including bag and board) with a weight of 0.2 pounds.
All action figures are given an average weight of 1.2 pounds, and most statues are 2 pounds.
So bearing that in mind, you can calculate what your shipping costs would be by totaling up your
purchases and using this chart:
UNITED STATES (DOMESTIC) SHIPPING:
Under 1 pound - $4.00
1 to 3 pounds - $7.00
3 pounds or more - $14.00
Purchases of $75 or more enjoy free shipping
Under 1 pound - $20.00
1 to 3 pounds - $30.00
3 pounds or more - $40.00
Please note: INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is expensive, and varies wildly from one country to another.
If we go to the post office and the price turns out to be LESS than what we charged you, we will refund the difference immediately. (If it's more, you will not be charged.) These International Shipping fees are just an average, so we'll do our best to keep it fair for our friends around the world. Thanks!
OKAY, SERIOUSLY....WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND THE STORE'S NAME?
It's a family inside joke. Stop on in and embarrass John by asking him. If he's in a good mood, he'll tell you why the store in named "Screaming Monkey."
Frequently Asked Questions
DO WE BUY STUFF.....LIKE COMICS, TOYS, CARDS, COLLECTIBLS, ETC.?
Yes, we do! Many factors are taken into account when we decide to purchase comics, such as general demand for the book, condition, do we already have it, etc and so forth. To check out the things we're looking for (and also NOT looking for) just check out the "WE'RE BUYING" page.
