If you are looking to buy comic books or sell comics, we recommend visiting MetropolisComics.com. Metropolis is the world’s largest dealer of rare vintage comic books – ie, those comics that were originally published between in the 1930s – 1975, and are described as Golden Age, Silver Age and Bronze Age comic books. Each year, they acquire millions of dollars of comic books to sell and over titles such as Action Comics, Detective Comics, Amazing Fantasy, Green Lantern, Marvel Comics and many more.
Other comic book dealers of note include PackRatComics and Cosmic Comics. If you live in Los Angeles, a fun comic book store to visit is Hi De Ho Comics. If you want to meet East Coast comic book dealers, than visit EastCoastComics.com.
They say that “every comic book collector is a comic book dealer”. If you want to buy comic books from other comic book collectors who double as comic book dealers, go to ComicConnect.com. This website is for very serious collectors of Golden Age comics, Silver Age comic books, and high-grade Bronze Age comics. Sellers can list their comic books for sale on the website, and ComicConnect will make sure it is a secure transaction and that both the buyer and seller are legitimate. ComicConnect also offers free appraisal for collectors and comic dealers alike who are interested in consigning or selling.
Comics are not just for children. The comic book industry is huge, generating millions each year in movie theaters and through the sale of expensive, vintage comic books (just check the official Overstreet Comic Book price guide!) Just looking at the juggernaut that is the Uncanny X-Men franchise, or the Spiderman, Iron Man, and Fantastic Four movies. It's clear that all the merchandise from these titles and genres can result in a valuable collectibles market, and buyers, sellers and dealers nationwide are in search of not just rare comic books, but also appraisals of the collections that they already have.
The goal of Comic Dealers is to put you in touch with the resources you need to find the rare, graded, certified books, or to find stores that will help you determine the worth of your collection, and then sell and auction it.
We suggest you start by looking at some out of print, officially certified books from the largest online comic book stores. Just enter a title or issue in the search box above to begin!
