Comics Grab Box Bonanza   3 comments

A Huge Box of Comics for $30

Today, December 4, 2015, when I visited Samurai Comics to get my holds, I saw them selling grab boxes of comics for $30 each. Each box had 4 comics showing on the outside, one for each side, and the guy at the store, assured me they were not supposed to be full of duplicates, so I took a chance and bought a box. The box I bought showed these 4 comics:

Just for the fun of seeing what was in it, I thought I’d make this page and list the contents of the box by publisher and title. I’m not going to show all the covers, but if I see any that I really love, I will insert those pix.  The third pic above is B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth #4.  The books are listed in the order in which I took them out of the box under each publisher. You understand they were all scrambled together and I had no idea what was coming out.  The ones without parenthesis after them were on the outside of the box. For the rest, I will insert a number like this to show what number it was coming out of the box. (x)

_______________________________________________

All that was in this box–181 comics for $30. That comes to 16 cents per comic, which seems like a fair price to me for used comics that no one really wants. The average price marked on these comics was $4.00, though a lot of them had been in the $1.00 bins for some time. Just goes to show how overpriced comics are.

If you ever got a really good, or bad, deal when buying comics, why not leave a comment?
