Buying Policy

We buy everything!

That’s right! We are interested in buying anything pop culture related. We are different than other comic book specialty stores that rarely buy used items; we continually buy items from the public.

Some things we pay pennies on the dollar and some things we pay up to 70% of value!

When selling us items, please realize that condition is critical. A comic book, for instance, is graded on a 10 point scale. 10.0 being MINT – NO FLAWS, a 2.0 being GOOD – AN AVERAGE WELL READ COMIC BOOK.

For Hulk #181, one of the most expensive comics from the 1970s, a GOOD rated copy mayl sell for $200, a 10.0 rated comic may sell for $2500 or higher. As you can see, that is a wide spread!

Most people don’t take CONDITION into consideration and tend to overvalue their comic books and other collectibles. So, if the comic book or other collectible you want to sell us does not look brand new, realize that it is probably worth less than you think it is!

Do you have something you want to sell us? Please E-mail us with a description of what you have.

  • Comic books published before 1979
  • Mint comic books from the current or previous year
  • Entire comic book story arcs – the more complete, the better.
