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?

  1. Want. Want. Want Want ( i could go on, but you get the picture…..)

  2. Well I spent pretty much the entire proceeds of my newspaper route earnings on comic books from about 1981-1983. Between my brother and I we ended up with a pretty good sized box of comics — being slightly obsessive/completeist I spend too much on beat-up older comics just to have every appearance of my favorite villains, and I also fell for the fad of “limited series”, buying up all kinds of junk. Not a good deal though because in the end the whole collection just disappeared at some point (I don’t even know for sure if they were in my custody, my brothers, or back at my parents’ old house — we stopped collecting comics after our first move, from NJ to KS, and lost track of them in Ohio, after keeping them all neatly in mylar sleeves for 20 odd years. So maybe that was a bad deal? 😦 Then again we read the heck out of them.

  3. It’s all about reading them for me. I love story, and heroes, and the hero stories just go on and on.
