How to Sell Comic Books

Many people who started collecting comics back when they are young now have an extensive collection. They realize that they are probably sitting on a fortune because of the value of some of these books and want to know how to sell comic books. For example, the first copy of Superman sold for 10 cents when it was first published and on the collector's market today, it is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The first thing you need if you want to know how to sell comic books is a book that gives you the value of the books. This guise also tells you how to grade the books in your collection so you will have a better idea of how much they are worth. Comic books in mint, near mint and good condition are the ones that fetch the highest prices. Any books that you have with the cover torn or pages missing are not worth very much money.

Some of the ways you could sell off your collection are:

  • Set up a booth at a comic book convention
  • Advertise in the local paper
  • Bring your collection to a comic store
  • Advertise on eBay
  • Set up your own Internet site selling your books

If you don't have a collection to sell, you might still want to know how to sell comic books so that you can make a profit. One way to do this is to set up a store and buy comics at wholesale prices directly from the publishers. You can sell them at a profit and expand into other fields such as buying used comics and reselling them. You can also set up your own online store and do the same thing, so that you don't have to have rental space or employees. The site sells the books while you are asleep and you just have to check it a few times a day and process the orders you receive.
