Selling comic books isn’t easy. If you’re selling them yourself online, you need to invest a lot of time and effort into a process in which you’re not even guaranteed to find a seller. If you’re selling your comic books to a reseller or a broker, deciding who you sell them to will determine how much money you yield and how easy the process will be.
Most people choose to sell their comic books to a reseller — either a local comic book store, a distributor, a broker, or something along those lines.
If you’re going that route as well, you should ask yourself one question- who can sell my comic books the best? Because if they can resell your comic books most successfully, they can pay you the most to take them off your hands.
Here’s what to look for when selling your comic books to a reseller:
How Popular Are They?
A comic book reseller’s success lives and dies with how large their network is and how popular they are. If they know they have a reliable, steady influx of buyers coming through their doors, they will be more willing to take on new inventory and even pay a premium for it because they can be reasonably sure they’ll be able to sell it in a timely manner. In contrast, if a comic book reseller doesn’t have a lot of foot traffic and doesn’t sell many items, they will be reluctant to buy your comic books from you, and even if they do, it may not be at an attractive price.
What Geographical Area Do They Cover?
Selling comic books is all about finding the right buyer. The more people you have access to, the better the chances are of finding that buyer. If a comic book store is located far from any major population centers and doesn’t have a large online footprint, it may be substantially harder for them to find the right buyer, as opposed to a popular online comic book reseller who has access to everyone around the world who has internet access.
How Well Are They Doing?
At the end of the day, if you’re selling your comic books, you want a good price for them. That means the buyer is going to need to have the cash to pay you. You should always try to sell your comic books to someone — whether it’s a store or another collector — who is well capitalized.
How Easy Are They To Work With?
Comic books are supposed to be fun and easy! Don’t let a sales process sour your view of comic books and the comic book industry. When possible, it always makes things easier to work with people you actually enjoy working with.
