We make it easy to sell your comics

We are Lone Star Comics, selling online as MyComicShop. We've been selling comics since 1961 and are the largest comic book retailer in the world. Each year we buy millions of comics from sellers all across the United States and around the world. We buy single high value comics, collections large and small, estates, and dealer and retail store inventories.

We make selling comics easy and treat you fairly regardless of your experience and knowledge of comics. We are a two-generation family-owned business with over 100 employees. We have an outstanding reputation for honesty and square dealing. See testimonials from sellers who have dealt with us.

In addition to comic books, graphic novels, and comic magazines, we also buy original comic art, pulps, digest magazines, fanzines, vintage paperbacks, and pre-1980s Men's interest magazines.

Read this first: If your comics are from the 1980s, 1990s, or newer, or you just want to know what your comics are worth

Unfortunately most comics published in the 1980s, 1990s, and newer are very common and so not worth very much. We sell most comics from this time period for between $1.00 and $3.00, and buy them for less than $1.00 or not at all because we're already well stocked with them.

Here's how to get an idea of the value of your comics:

Then, if you think your comics are valuable enough to be worth selling to us, you can use our online want list to sell your comics from the 1980s, 1990s, and newer. If you're a knowledgeable comic collector or dealer and have high value items you wish to sell or consign, including CGC and CBCS graded comics, you should also look at Option 1B (sell CGC and CBCS graded comics) and Option 4 (consignment) described below.

Option 1A: Large Collections, Estates, and Retailer Inventories

We are the top buyer in the country for large collections and estates. We can buy any size collection, will treat you fairly, and pay strong prices that can beat any other offer. Please give us a call to discuss your comics.

And if you are a comic retailer or dealer interested in selling your store stock or warehouse contents, we will very easily be the best buyer out there for what you're selling due to our reach and the size of our customer base. Call us.

Option 1B: Sell your CGC and CBCS Graded Comics

We pay competitive prices for CGC and CBCS graded comics from all eras:

  • classic Golden Age, Silver Age, and Bronze Age in all grades and value ranges
  • high grade modern comics, signature series, and CBCS verified signatures
  • price variants, promotional, giveaways, other unusual books
  • restored, conserved, qualified, coverless/incomplete
  • all price ranges: $20+, $100, $1000, $10K, $100K+

If you are selling comics graded by CGC or CBCS: email a list of the CGC or CBCS graded comics you want to sell to sellerservices@mycomicshop.com, or send a text to 817-670-8115 listing the CGC and CBCS comics you want to sell. Unless your list is espeically large we should be able to get back to you with an offer within 1-2 business days if not same day.

If your comics are not graded by CGC or CBCS: please review the other selling options described on this page and pick the one that best fits what you have. For most people with comics from the 1980s or newer, this would be Option 2, described just below.

Option 2: Sell using our online want list (all eras, all values)

  • You can sell comics from any era, low grade or high grade, low value or high value, "raw" or 3rd party encapsulated.
  • Our want list is updated in real time based on our current inventory needs. You can look up any issue to see if we're buying it, and if so, how much we'll pay for it.
  • Individual sellers and comic stores use this option to sell us more than a million comics a year.

Option 3: Sell your entire collection of comics cover priced $0.35 or less

We will buy your entire collection under option 3 if at least half of your collection is comics cover priced $0.35 or less. If you have a collection consisting of mostly comics from the 1980s and newer with cover prices $0.40 and higher, we recommend you use Option 2: Sell using our online want list.

Before offering your comics to us, we suggest you check with your local comic store, or antique shop or used book store if there's no comic store in your area, and get an offer price from them for your comics. That way you have something to compare to when you receive our offer. Sellers who take our advice and get another offer first tell us that our offer is usually two to ten times better.

  • If you have a complete list of your comics, send it to us. We will evaluate your list and get back to you with an offer for your whole collection.
  • If you don't have a list, you don't have to spend endless hours creating one. Instead, send us a cover price count summary which can be prepared very quickly. That and a few follow up questions from us and you'll have our offer.
  • When we buy your collection, we'll either pick up your comics or cover the shipping costs if you are shipping from within the continental United States.
  • If we have a Buying Partner near you, that partner can assist us in purchasing your comics.

Option 5: Quick Sale, Ship your comics cover priced $0.60 or less for an offer

Quick Sale is popular because it is easy and fast. No prior authorization required. Follow the instructions and ship your comics.

Comics eligible to be sold via Quick Sale:
  • Comics with cover price $0.10: ELIGIBLE any grade, any quantity, even a single comic
  • Comics with cover price $0.12: ELIGIBLE any grade, minimum quantity 50
  • Comics with cover price $0.15 to $0.40: ELIGIBLE any grade, minimum quantity 100
  • Comics with cover price $0.50 to $0.60: will be accepted only if in like-new condition (very fine to near mint), and these comics make up no more than 50% of the total quantity of comics submitted. Half or more of your comics must have cover prices $0.10 to $0.40.

Comics with a cover price $0.65 or higher are NOT ELIGIBLE to be sent via Quick Sale. Instead, we recommend using our online want list.

Once your comics arrive at our warehouse, you'll receive an offer within seven business days, and we pay immediately on your acceptance of our offer. If we are unable to agree on a price for your comics, we will return your comics to you at our expense if you have followed our submission guidelines above. You will have to pay your own return shipping if you send material that does not meet our submission guidelines (for example, more than half of the comics sent have cover price $0.50 or higher).
