Selling your comic books can be overwhelming simply because you have so many options! The first big question is whether you should sell your comic books online or sell them locally?

Let’s assume you’ve considered those options and decided to sell locally. Even then, you still have options to consider that vary wildly in convenience, price, and so on.

The next big question is– do you want to sell your comic books for cash, or do you want to put them up for consignment?

Selling your comic books on consignment usually yields a higher selling price for you because it allows the other party to limit their risk by only having to pay you once the item sells. And they still have an incentive to sell it for the highest price possible because they keep a certain percentage of the sale price.

We here at Sparkle City Comics will buy your comic books from you on consignment, even if we aren’t local to you, and we will most likely be able to get you the highest selling price for those comics at the best rate. So if you don’t want to work through your local store, let’s talk!

If you don’t want to sell on consignment, the other option is to sell your comic books on the spot for cold-hard cash. This is a very nice option for people who just want an easy, fast transaction.

So where can you sell your comic books locally either on consignment or for cash?

Local Comic Book Store

The first and most obvious choice to sell your comic books is your local comic book store. In order to sell comic books at the best price possible, you need to attract the right crowd and know the right buyers, and your local comic book store has these connections. So they will be willing to pay a decent price for your comics.

Local Pawn Shop

Your local pawn shop is another obvious choice, but because they don’t specialize in comic books and may not necessarily know the right buyers for them, they may not be willing to pay the best price possible for your comic books. But they certainly would provide a fast, smooth transaction for cash if that’s what you’re looking for.

Local Trade Show

Trade shows are hit-and-miss, but if there’s a local trade show specializing in comics or collectibles, there may be a good vendor or another potential buyers lurking around. You may have to do some networking and asking around, but you’d certainly be surrounded by potential buyers.

Local Meetup Group

Local comic and games-related meetups are also great places to sell your comic books, and they are more consistently held than trade shows, so it may be a more convenient option than a trade show. However you will need to do a bit of asking around and networking as well.

Even if we aren’t local to you, Sparkle City Comics strives for the easiest, fastest, and top-dollar transactions for your comic books. So if you need to sell your comic books, give us a call at 800-743-9205 and let us help you!

  1. I have a comic book which seems to be an odd compilation of various comic book pages with a small section of glossy pages. The cover says only Marvel Comics and on the binding it indicates the Volume number (1, 2 or 3). These were printed and bound in Canada (1992, I believe). Each volume is about an inch thick. I have no idea how to list these to obtain their value as there are not other identifying titles. Any ideas? Would a picture help?
