Back issue comics are usually the ones that collectors are looking for. There are many back issues of different comics advertised for sale on eBay and the Internet sites where comic books are sold, bought and traded. One way you could get the back issues that you want is to connect with another collector and trade some of your duplicate back issues for the ones you want. This way you are not taking anything out of your collection, not are you spending any money.
You might expect to pay a lot of money for some back issue comics, but most of them are reasonably priced. Actually on some Internet sites you could get discounts as much as 36% of the retail price for ordering the back issues because the retailers want to get rid of their extra stock. The best way to find out the back issues that you need to search for all the names of the comics books in each series you want to collect. You can easily print off the page and then mark off the name of each issue that you get.
Most of the back issue comics that you buy are in mint or near mint condition. This is a perfect way for collectors to add to their collection with issues that will probably be worth a lot of money in the future. The price you pay for each issue depends on the condition of the book, so if you are not really collecting books for their monetary value, this is a great way to have the comics you want to read or ones of your favorite superhero.
The price you pay for back issue comics really depends on the particular title. If it is a first edition or one that was only published once, you should expect to pay more money for it. For example, you can purchase issue #58 or Archie and Veronica in good condition for $7.00, while a back issue of Atom Ant sells for $129.00 because it was the only one published.
