In today's age of Playstations, Nintendos and Xboxs, do you think that there are people reading comic books? Well, there may be, I am not saying that there aren't. But then, I am sure that their numbers will be relatively lesser. I don't even remember when was the last time I read one. So this means that, if at all you were amongst those, who at one time used to buy dozens of comics every day, you will have a storeroom full of them. So, I think it would be a good idea for you to sell the comics that you've got. And what could be better than getting monetary rewards in return.

Selling Comic Books

Firstly, collect all your comics as it is best to sell them in bulk. You also will need to know what grade comics you've got. The grade means how good is the condition of your book. Obviously, the better the condition, the better will be the price you can expect.

It is also important to know how much your comics are worth. To know this, consider various factors like the condition or the grade, the age, rarity, etc. These are few essential things you should know about. Before you start selling your comic collection, it's important to know how will you sell them. You must know of various channels where you can put them up for sale.

Where to Sell Comic Books

Comic stores can be a great and the most viable option for you to sell your books. The reason is simple, comic stores are most visited by comic enthusiasts or collectors, who buy and sell such books. Hence, there may be people who want to purchase your collection. If you have got a rare collection of comics, then you can be assured of good returns.

Again, if at all you've got comics which are worth auctioning, you can consider this option too. To do this, you need to have plenty of time on your hands, because you will need to engage in advertising, promotion, etc., for your comics. You may also consider selling your comic collection at a convention, as there are higher chances of getting potential customers there.

One of the best places to try selling your comic book collection is over the Internet. Advertise on the Internet, let your friends know about it. Blog about it, so that people get to know about it. There are few websites which may want to purchase your collection, apart from potential individual customers. You can also put it in classifieds online to gain customers. Another channel to sell comic books, is book stands. Visit some book stands and tell them about your collection. Chances are that either they may be the ones purchasing your collection, or they may refer you to someone who would be willing to buy it.

Don't be disappointed if you don't get what you had expected. The collection you've got would be worth something big, but then it may not be the same for a potential buyer. If at all your comics are really old, that does not mean that they will fetch you a higher price always. Be realistic as far as monetary gains are concerned. Personally I would suggest, try selling your comics on particular occasions. For example, if there have been movies released based on famous comics like Iron Man, Spiderman, Hulk, et al, try selling your relevant Marvel comics during this time, as it is most likely to get the best prices for them.

Be sure to do your research before you go venturing in this trade. Check at what prices are similar comics being sold in the market. Check for the real price and the selling prices of these comics at various channels. If you want to sell comic books for cash, I would suggest you to think again. If you want to do something good, you can always donate your collection to any nonprofit organization for children, because you may become a part of those few individuals who love to see smiles on their face.
