If you’re considering selling your comic books, the appeal of a fast transaction may lead you to consider selling to a pawn shop.
While this is most likely one of the easiest and fastest ways to sell a comic book collection, it may not be the best fit for you if you take everything into consideration:

Pawn Shops Are Not Comic Book Experts
Pawn shops are experts at buying low and selling high, but not specifically for comic books. Because they don’t specialize in comic books and they don’t attract solely comic book buyers, they need to ensure that they can sell their items fast by offering extremely low prices that they can pass on to their own buyers. If you are in a bind and need to sell fast, a pawn shop may be your only option, but otherwise you should try to sell your comic books in other venues that will offer more money.
You Won’t Have Buyers Competing For Your Sale
One of the reasons selling comic books online is so attractive is because you have many buyers competing for your collection, bidding up the selling price in the process. Sure, this does take a bit longer and more work than selling to a pawn shop directly, but it’s almost always worth it. Plus there are ways to get the benefits of selling on eBay without actually selling on eBay.
