Friends, collectors, and citizens of Metropolis – please help us officially welcome comic books to COMC!
Several months ago, as Check Out My Cards became COMC, we launched a Beta program for comics, coins, and other collectibles. It’s been a long time goal of ours to expand our unique consignment model into other areas beyond trading cards, and we are proud to announce that our first group of comics is now live on the site.
Everything that you like about buying and selling cards on COMC will also apply to comics. You’ll still get all of the benefits of the largest and fastest-growing online consignment community, including:
Benefits for buyers:
- Detailed front & back cover scans of each comic book.
- The ability to combine multiple orders from multiple sellers into one convenient shipment from our world class shipping department. All comics will be safely shipped with bags and backing boards.
- The peace of mind of dealing with one established company instead of dealing with auctions and/or unverified vendors.
- The freedom to make an offer below the asking price.
Benefits for sellers:
- We do the scanning and listing – all you need to do is set your prices.
- We handle the packaging and shipping, even to international addresses.
- Trusted & reliable customer service for you and your customers, during and after every transaction.
- The option to make your comics also available on Amazon.com, widening your potential customer base by millions.
- A choice between cashing out your earnings (20% cashout fee) or using your profits to buy other items on the site (no fee!)
Sellers can either ship comics to us or drop them off in person at our secure, climate-controlled Redmond, WA location.
The new Comic Pilot Service has a processing fee of $0.50 per item, and your items will be uploaded to your COMC account within one month.
A few rules for submitting comics:
- Nothing with explicit content or that has a Parental Advisory label.
- Nothing with a shipping or address label on it – retail copies only.
- No graphic novels or trade paperbacks (yet) – single issues only.
Emerald City Comicon
If you’re in the Seattle area and happen to be attending the Emerald City Comicon this weekend, be sure to stop by Booth 1408 and say hello to us. We’d love to tell you more about this new chapter in the COMC saga, as well as get your input about what sort of features you’d like to see in the future.
Vancouver Fan Expo
We will be at the Vancouver Fan Expo April 20-21. More details to come!
We’re tremendously excited to be joining the comics community, and look forward to working with all the fans and collectors.
