So yeah. I have some comics that I want to sell off. My nearest shop isn't buying right now though. Anyone here encountered this issue and have suggestions on a quick and easy way to sell comics?

eBay? Easiest is if you don't have anything valuable is to sell them in bulk.

I sold off all 2000+ of my monthly comics on ebay a couple of years ago. It's a flack-ton of work. Ended up selling in bulk for low prices. But they had to go.

Ebay basically has ruined the market for back-issues of comics. Every kid and their mother has a copy of whatever you've got on sale for $3 or less. Back-issues I scoured dozens of stores in multiple states, and paid $20-$25 for back in the late 1980's now sell for a buck on ebay.

I'm vaguely in the market for Excalibur vol. 1, Alpha Flight vol. 1, and Cable vol. 1 pre-issue 47 if you're selling any of those.

mycomicshop.com also buys comics, but having never sold to them, I can't tell you what they'd pay.

I used to work at one of the physical stores for mycomicshop.com before they want all digital. Generally they just pay a bulk price for a box based on era and condition, but if you have special issues you'd like to get specific prices for they let you self-grade and quote you a price for those as well.
