Should I Discount In
Order to Draw Customers?

      You probably should do this or you will lose much of your business. Few collectors will want to pay the full price. Most collectors will be happy to purchase at 50%-60%  discounts for items they really want. Plan to sell most issues with a 50% discount and offer incentives at larger discounts too.

     Am I dealing with a reputable dealer?

       Yes. You may request a list of happy customers, and we'll give you the address of our bank, and accountant. Our company receives a customer satisfaction award each year from the Comic Buyers Guide that may be viewed on our Monthly Special page.

       Can I run this business with no computer skills?

      You would be where Reynold Jay was in 1999 . He began the business without a computer and had no skills either. Back Issue Comix will help set up your site for you and run it while you learn to run the site. In a few weeks or months, you'll be able to run your own site.

    I have computer skills and wonder what is the best way to set up my internet site?

    Simply copy the pages or titles you are stocking and selling from the BIC site. BIC can make up custom art logos for you. Place the site into one folder on your hard drive. Obtain a domain name to protect your business name.

     What titles should I carry?

    Use the list below. These are listed  in  order of
importance. Inquire for exact list for each title.
First three titles have detailed lists on page 3.

Old answer left intact however is no longer the way to operate. New way to operate is to simply purchase anything in bulk at a good price and re-sell one at a time. Lists are left for you to see as these are the titles that sell the best. Stay away from 90's collections  and collections that are not Marvel and DC. Valiant and Image comics will waste your time. Many collections are advertised as "No duplicates" however duplicates can be a good thing as you are interested in selling( not reading) and can expect a great price with duplicates. However you don't want 100 each of something that is  going to be difficult to sell. If negotiating a deal for something of questionable value , consider yourself a "junk dealer." Calculate that you can sell 100 junk comics for $10. How to pay for this junk? "I'll haul this away for free."  Be prepared to walk away from sellers who want too much.

Note: Our dealer discount program has been somewhat discontinued.
