Find Comic Book Values FREE!

Comic book values are dependent upon many factors: rarity, condition, and demand are the most important.

A comic doesn't have to be actually very rare to be valuable (for example, Incredible Hulk #181 is a very in-demand book, even though it's not at all rare -- the first appearance of Wolverine has made it quite a valuable comic).

It's hard to determine comic book values without experience

And there are plenty of rare comics which are not very valuable, simply because not many people want to collect them.

For example, "funny animal" comics are barely collected, and no matter how rare individual issues are, they are simply not worth a lot of money.

Superhero comics from the same period are always worth more. Early Superman comic books are worth 10 to 20 times as much as a funny animal book from the same era, even if the Superman comic is found a lot more often.

The Importance of Good Grading

Comic book grading is a tough skill to acquire. Even years of experience may not be enough to determine the fine boundaries between one grade and another.

As the owner of comic books that you did not collect yourself, you may have ZERO experience! How are you supposed to begin?

Our article on grading comic books may help. (Opens in a new window.) Or you can simply ask us to value them for you.

How We Arrive at Comic Book Prices

vintage comic book values depend upon condition

At Sell My Comic Books, we appraise the value of your comics in several ways:

  • We carefully assess the contents and condition of your comic book collection, paying special attention to any "key" (high-value) comics you may have.
  • Typically, 80 percent of the value comes from 20 percent of the comics you have
  • We do market research to determine the current market value
  • We consider any offers you've received from dealers or individuals up to now

There is no guesswork. Once we have fixed on a valuation for your comic books, we'll submit the quotation to you.

If the books are of interest to us, we will back up that quotation with a Dollar offer to match it.

You can have your money by certified check, money order, Paypal, or cash (if you're local to us).
