There are many websites and apps you can use to sell your comic books so we have created a list of some of the most common.

eBay

Pros: Huge potential audience
Cons: High fees, time-consuming, need advanced knowledge of selling process
Bottom line: eBay is both a blessing and a curse for people selling things online. It takes a certain level of expertise to know when to start and end auctions, what to set the starting big price at, etc. Even if you get all those things right, it takes a lot of time to run a successful auction between answering questions, taking pictures and preparing shipments. If you have the time, it may be worth it to put an auction up and hope you find a very attractive buyer.

Craigslist

Pros: Free to post, easy
Cons: Not much exposure to the right buyers, limited geographically, time-consuming
Bottom line: Craigslist is quick and easy, but you will probably not find many willing buyers on the platform and will therefore end up selling your comic books for less than you’d like. Plus there’s usually a geographical limit on Craigslist– if you’re not in a very highly populated area, you may not get any offers at all.

A Meetup

Pros: Easy, face-to-face transaction, no fees
Cons: Very limited access to buyers
Bottom line: Very similar to Craigslist but a bit more targeted. If you go to comic book-related Meetups, you may find a willing buyer or at least a great platform to announce your interest in selling your comic books. Again, there may be a limiting geographical factor here.

Your Own Network (Email, Facebook, Twitter, etc)

Pros: Easy, trusted transaction
Cons: Tough doing business with friends and family, might not get in front of right buyer
Bottom line: If you’re ok with soliciting sales to friends and family, posting on your social media that you’re interested in selling your comic books may be a quick and easy way to unload those comic books. However it does get uncomfortable negotiating with friends and family, so you may not get the best offer possible.
