eBuying Comics – Do Comic Collectors do it Differently to Graphic Novel Readers?

by Guest

Feature by Matthew De Monti Yes I wholeheartedly apologise for the click bait style title, but this article has nothing to do with the bedroom antics of comic fans, rather whether they prefer their reading in floppy or hard format (sorry!) Recently I had a WhatsApp message from a friend showing a picture of the […]

by Guest

Walk into any newsagent and you will see rows and rows of magazines and periodicals covering all interests and genres with a weekly, monthly or quarterly publication date. Similarly, drop into your local comic shop and you are likely to see a similar arrangement with racks of comics, sometimes arranged with the week’s release first […]

eBuying Comics: Week 76

by Ian Wells

Recently I relisted some unsold items, but this time I used the ‘item specifics.’ eBay claim this increases traffic to your listings and increases the chances of selling. Below you can see the before and after results. I have come to the conclusion that what they claim is simply not true, although admittedly it is […]

eBuying Comics: Week 75

by Ian Wells

Welcome to the first Versus of 2022 and it is a big one to start! This year I wanted to go bigger than just pitting similar characters together. 2022 is also the 30th anniversary of the birth of Image Comic, so what better way to start than by having the Image 7 face off in […]

eBuying Comics: Week 74

by Ian Wells

Recent Sales Success I had the recent fortune of some puzzle pieces all falling into place at the same time. It only resulted in me selling one comic but I think the turn of events involved was worth documenting. It all started the morning after the Superbowl. I had the day off as it was […]

eBuying Comics: Week 73 – Lucky Target Comics Q&A

by Ian Wells

This week I have a brilliant Q and A with Sumyra of Lucky Target Comics. I discovered Lucky Target Comics last summer after seeing a Tweet from the writer of Alex Automatic, Fraser Campbell. He had scored an excellent collection of Daredevil issues from the site, a number of which I myself had on my […]

This past weekend I attended my first comic con since 2019. In fact it was my first visit to the London Comic Mart since 2017! The one thing I immediately noticed was my fingers were well out of practice at nimbly working my through the long boxes. The good news is that the event seemed […]

This week I bring you the battle to end all battles. The most talked about confrontation in all of comics mythology. Two behemoths are ready to collide. It is of course the force of DC Comics bravest and boldest vs Marvel Comics mightiest heroes. The Justice League vs The Avengers! Not only are the bragging […]

In 1973 Marvel latched onto the Bruce Lee, Kung Fu craze and launched the character of Shang Chi into high octane kung fu action in the pages of their comics. Now it is my turn to latch onto the latest craze and talk all things Master of Kung Fu. Firstly I haven’t seen the movie […]

I thought I would dedicate this space to taking a moment to reflect on eBuying Comics in 2021 and look towards the future. I always used to buy the summer edition of Wizard magazine as it was an entertaining indicator on how good/bad comics had been that and how much better/worse they were going to […]

eBuying Comics: Week 61

Since making her debut in 2010 with her appearance in Iron Man 2, Black Widow has been a key ingredient of the MCU. I think would appeal to audiences about her was her being the human element, whilst at the same time being able to hold her own. Even though her story differed a lot […]
