While there is a certain dodginess that makes linking to this feel a little weird, I found this listing for a liquidation center’s comic offerings vaguely amusing:
Comic books are great sellers at dollar stores, flea markets, and on eBay.
Customers buy comic books out of impulse, to keep their children happy, out of curiosity, and as collectibles.
The release of comic book based movies, such as Spiderman, Batman, and Superman, help develop an interest in comic books.
You can profit from the popularity of comic books by purchasing them at below wholesale prices, and selling them as dollar items or as collectibles.
A further press release explains more, from proprietor Donny Lowy who says the Dubai Comics Expo proves they like them even in the Middle East.
“My focus is on selling bulk lots of comic books from the 1980′s and up. Depending on availability, I can wholesale comic books in bulk for as low as .10 each. Besides the market for comic books in the United States, there is also an international market for comic books in countries such as Mexico, Nigeria, Israel, and Canada. I strongly believe that with the popularity of superhero movies produced by Hollywood, the demand for comic books of Batman, X-Men, Daredevil, Superman, Spiderman, Iron Man, Avengers, Star Wars, and GI Joe, will continue,” said Donny Lowy, who as a college student rented spots at comic book shows.
Lowy is offering some 10,000 comics for $1900. That’s 19¢ each for those who are math impaired, like us.
