We buy comics
At the Comics Dungeon we are always on the look for more comics to add to our stock. We are regularly looking for books from the 1970’s and earlier, but we will look at any collection you have. Typically we pay between 15-30% for most collections. Higher grade and key issues will be on the higher edge of this range. The more modern the collection the lower the rates we will pay. Comics from the 1980’s-2010’s can bring as low as 5 cents each and frequently end up in our quarter bins. Email your list or questions to email@example.com and we will help you out.
We appraise and grade comics
Jon is our appraiser and chief buyer, he has over 30 years of grading and buying comics. Jon is happy to review any collection to give you a rough idea of what you have and what you might expect in a wholesale or retail transaction. Jon can do a detailed appraisal for insurance claims, estate valuation or just for your information. Our basic rate for appraisals is $20 per hour, depending on the condition and age of the comics we can appraise between 20 and 60 comics per hour. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to schedule an appointment.
We work with CGC to get your collectibles protected for life!
We are happy to be the intermediary for CGC, we charge the same rates as CGC, modern book rates are currently $18 per book for books valued under $200, fees are based on book value, age and service turn-a-round time. You can see rates here for details.
The books need to be sent via registered mail which varies with the value of the books.
In addition we have to add outgoing shipping and handling.
So the total price comes to Shipping To CGC plus Shipping From CGC plus the Grading Fees.
We usually recommend doing several books at once as it makes shipping more efficient. Additionally if you have older books we can have our appraiser help you value and decide on which books would benefit from the CGC grading and preserving.
As the intermediary we will package your books, as there are specifics and we are experienced here. We also offer being the return address as well, since the books return via registered mail they need a signature and we always have someone here during business hours for that service.
We can provide an estimate the cost for your books, depending on shipping and service level. It is up to if you will get the return on the investment you want here.
In open disclosure, we make money on the discount that CGC offers us in the grading rates, currently 20%.
