So with the exception of a very few of my favourite deluxe volumes, I am think of selling off my comic collection.

 

I have around 250 trade paperback/volumes - a mix of one-shots, complete series and partial collections of series with condition for the most part ranging from "good" to "mint"

 

Obviously the best way to sell for the highest return is to sell them off as individuals or packaged into series over TradeMe...but I am not sure I can face doing that in my spare time, especially when factoring in the inevitable TradeMe Moron factor!

 

Has anyone here done this or something similar before? Are there decent specialists in Auckland or New Zealand who would actually give me a fair price for the whole lot?

 

Cheers

I sold mine in bunches on trademe. Just do it in one go. Made a few hundred from it from memory. No problems with the buyers. Just make sure you take good photos. Can't think of a better way to sell them, unless you want to give them away.

Was ideally hoping to sell as a collection either to a private enthusiast or - more likely - a reseller/dealer. Selling 250+ books as individuals or small groups is pretty time consuming to create and manage all the listings as well as then relisting, posting, getting packaging sorted etc. Maybe I am just being lazy, but it seemed like a lot of faffing!

 

 

 

I had an ideal average of around $5 per book over the whole collection, which would equate to a decent amount of cash all told and I guess I can maximize that by breaking it down.

Curious about the same. I have a fairly complete collection of the Sandman (Including 2 each of issues 1-5 I think) and a bunch of other stuff...  always torn on whether to sell or not...  but the ones I have duplicates of would make sense to sell I guess. Just never got round to it.

Funnily enough I have already sold my complete trade paper back collection of Sandman as I have replaced with the "Absolute" hard cover versions...which are magnificent objects. I will be keeping those along with my Absolute Transmetropolitan and some of the others.

 

Has always been disappointing that there was never an Absolute edition of Mike Carey's "Lucifer" collection - an absolute must for any fans of Sandman...
