No buyer's premiums — What you bid is what you pay!
Consign Now!

ComicConnect's mission is to offer vintage comic book, original art and memorabilia buyers and sellers an easy-to-use alternative to consignment websites, auction houses and "feeBay". Most importantly, ComicConnect offers you, the user, control over setting the prices you want to pay, and the prices you receive for the sale of your items. Paramount to all of this is the money ComicConnect puts back into your pocket. There are no "buyer fees" extracted from the items you purchase, forcing you to pay a lower price to the seller to compensate for the loss. There are no exorbitant sellers' fees to take a cut out of what money the seller receives either. ComicConnect is, quite simply, a better model for buying and selling comics, where the users of ComicConnect are the ones who benefit most.

ComicConnect provides state-of-the-art online technology and a reputable transaction environment backed by years of experience. The staff of ComicConnect is also always standing by to provide guidance to collectors and to answer whatever questions you might have about getting started buying and selling on ComicConnect.
