Understanding the Value of Your Comics

Comic book grading plays a crucial role in determining the value of your comics. It involves evaluating the condition of the comic book, including factors such as the presence of any damages, creases, or tears. The higher the grade, the more valuable the comic book becomes. Our experts at Hero Trader are well-versed in comic book grading (we also own and operate a third party comic grading company so we can accurately assess the condition of your comics, including popular titles like Marvel's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Our grading scale is based on Overstreet standards (, with a focus on low grade comics (4.0 and down) which can still hold value but may require caution due to potential defects, especially for high value comic books such as Amazing Fantasy #15. Even small grade increases in this range can significantly increase the value of your comics.

First appearances of heroes and villains play a big part in any comic books value, and not necessarily a first issue of a series. This is another important factor in determining the value of your comics, including popular characters like X-MEN, BLACK PANTHER, VENOM, CAPTAIN AMERICA, DAREDEVIL, and other iconic heroes and villains such as DEADPOOL and SPAWN. Our team has the expertise to identify reprints or altered books and will only offer to purchase genuine items.

Frequently Asked Questions

What percentage do you pay, based on the comics value?

Are you selling us a handful of amazing comics that are in high demand, and will sell almost immediately? Or, 10,000 comics that are destined for the dollar bin and will become dust collectors? Most likely, you'll have a combination of both and the books will be evaluated on this criteria.

Will you cherry pick the best ones?

The short answer is no. We will purchase all of your books if that is the type of transaction you're looking for. Too many people get bamboozled by so called “collectors” that claim they are only looking for a few books they need. Those few books just ALWAYS happen to be the best ones! Then your left with common issues that are very hard to sell.

Are you competitive with the big online dealers?

Yes! And if you are local, you can bring them right to the shop. No shipping, wasted time, waiting for payment, and over exaggerated credentials you often find on the internet.

What Makes a Comic Book Valuable?

The value of a comic book is determined by various factors, including its rarity, condition, historical significance, and demand among collectors. First appearances of popular characters, key storylines, and issues by renowned creators can significantly increase the value of a comic book.

How Do You Determine the Price of My Collectibles?

The price of your collectibles is determined through a thorough evaluation process. Our experts take into account factors such as rarity, condition, demand, and market trends. Comic book grading, specifically CGC and CBCS grading, plays a crucial role in determining the price, as higher-graded items are generally more valuable. Values are determined through third party sites such as for pre-graded comics, for general previous sales, and also for previously sold high grade comics from all eras, including classic Golden Age, Silver Age, and Bronze Age. We also consider the value of signature series and CBCS verified signatures when determining the price of your collectibles. Our extensive research and analysis of current listings, previous sales, and market trends ensure that you receive top offers for your comics and collections.

Can I Sell My Collection If It's Not Graded?

Yes, you can still sell your collection even if it's not graded. Our experts have the knowledge and experience to assess the condition and authenticity of your collectibles. However, grading can provide a more accurate valuation and increase buyer confidence.

What If I Have a Large Collection? Is There a Limit to How Much You Will Buy?

We are interested in COLLECTIONS OF ALL SIZES. Whether you have a few books or an extremely large one, we are eager to hear from you. There is no limit to how much we will buy, and we will provide a fair offer for your entire collection, based on market value and demand.
