Visitors: 423

Collecting comic books is a source of joy for many comic book and graphic novel enthusiasts.   However, many collectors have trouble finding comics that they feel would be worth collecting and don't really know what to do with them when they do.   There are a number of ways that collectors and comic enthusiasts can find out where to buy, sell and trade collectible comics and other memorabilia.   

You can find comic books and other collectable memorabilia in a number of places.   Comic conventions are an excellent way to find collectible comics, meet comic insiders and hear the latest comic industry news.   One of the best places to find comic books is on the internet.   You can find people selling comic books on different websites all over the web.   One way to find comic books is in an online market place such as   Ebay is one of the most popular places on the net to find auctions for collectible comic books.   Not only can you bid and buy comics but you can also sell your comic books through Ebay as well.   Another place to find comics is from an online comic book store such as Things From Another World or

You can also find collectible comic books online in comic collecting forums.   One of the sites that I would recommend is Planet Bugle ( ).   Planet Bugle provides a comic forum, a comic wiki, comic news, comic collecting faq's and other information on collecting comic books and more.   Comic forums and message boards allow you to connect with other collectors who are selling, buying and trading comic and can provide you with information and insight on collecting comic books.

As you start to accumulate more and more comic you will need to find ways to keep track of your comic book collection.   One effective method is to use a database software such as Comic Collector.   This will allow you to catalog your comic collection automatically.
