Find Dealers

Finding reputable, trustworthy comic book dealers can be a daunting task. Suppose, for example, you have an Amazing Spider-Man #68 from the year 1969. A Near Mint Plus copy graded 9.6 might sell for $385, whereas a Near Mint / Mint 9.8 graded comic might sell for as much as $4000! Having your comic incorrectly appraised or can be the difference between hundreds or even thousands of dollars, and using a auction service with fees (such as eBay) can be expensive and remove some of the profit from selling.

The services listed below will help you find the highest grade books from the highest grade of online dealers.

  • ComicConnect is the "do it yourself" place where you can sell comic books and buy comic books from other collectors who are selling Golden Age and Silver Age comic books. It's administrated by the same people at, so the site gets a lot of the traffic and customers from them. It's a great way to sell your back issues directly to the Fortune 500 CEOs and movie stars Metropolis caters to, rather than getting pittance for your collection on eBay.
  • Metropolis Comics is the world's biggest dealer of back issued comics and key issues from the years of 1930 — 1975.

They've bought and sold all the key issue comics such as Amazing Fantasy 15, Detective Comics 27, Action Comics 1, Hulk 181, Showcase 22 & Mile High pedigree comics. They pay A LOT more than what you get from an auction house, eBay or mom-and-pop dealer.
