If people ask me about selling comics, I do suggest that they take their stash along to the comicbook marketplace at the Royal National - or if there are too many to carry, make a careful list, including condition, and bring a few samples along.

 

There are stalls that sell British weekly comics, and annuals, so presumably they'd be up for buying some. Most dealers go for the US comics, of course. The first thing, anyway, would be to browse around the tables - if you see the comics you want to sell in everyone's "25p" boxes, the chances are that you won't be offered a fortune, but if you see them carefully displayed on the wall with nice chunky prices, then you may have better luck.

 

You always would have the option of booking a table for yourself, and selling direct to the public - best to do a reconnaissance trip to a mart first before doing that. The bonus is that then you can get in early... the downside though is it means you may have to get up rather early on that Sunday morning too! :P
