Half the fun of collecting comic books is hunting for rare editions on sale. This can be pretty challenging if want to buy editions that are very rare and harder to locate. On the other hand, you may just want the newest editions of your favorite comics. Your nearest neighborhood comic book store probably has all the recent comic book issues you want at regular prices.
You can also get new comics at toy stores, bookstores and even some corner markets. But, if you want to buy comic books in large quantities and at wholesale prices, try going straight to the source – the publishers themselves. Finding older comic books can be difficult, but with some persistence, you can find top comic books in no time.

You'll be surprised at the number of back issues comic book stores carry. The Internet is a good source. Go to auction sites and search for the comic book titles and editions that you are interested in. You can also join comic book fairs where a lot of comic book enthusiasts buy, sell or exchange older comic books.
Trade fairs are a great way to meet comic book fans, and you can eventually exchange, buy and sell with the folks you meet. Anyone selling their rare collection of comic books has a hard time deciding whether to sell or not, but you sometimes have to do it in order to stock in order to enhance your collection.
Just remember that they need to make a profit, and they will never offer you what your comics are actually worth. If you are willing to wait a little longer, you can sell your comic books on auction sites. Carefully study the payment and shipment rules to protect yourself from scam buyers.
