I have over 100 books on my wishlist.....about 70-80 of them are graphic novels. I know I will be waiting a long long time before most of them will get to me if ever.

 

Anyone know of any out of the usual places/websites where I could find some of them on the cheaper side? I think I'm about to scour some area comic book shops tomorrow. I took a brief look at amazon/borders/barnes&noble.

 

I was an avid comic book reader back in the day and I'm feeling the bug. Anything Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, DC.

 

thanks!

Ironically the only one I could find so far on PBS is one I already had when I was a kid (Excalibur).....

I have this graphic novel I was trying to find a home for, the cover has some dings where it got whacked in a box, but there are no rips and the spine is all attached. I had ordered some other books from a seller, the box got gutted on it's way to me, I lost 6 of the 17 books en route but this graphic novel came along for the ride, it was not on order. Let me know if you want it!

You could try TFAW.com.  It is an online comic shop and they sell their nick and dents for 50% off everyday.  I have ordered from them a few times from their nick and dent and they look as good as anything else you would order online.

Scott, if you aren't looking to fill your collection and only looking to read graphic novels, you might want to check your local library.  I looked up "Batman" recently and found that they actually have tons of DC and Marvel graphic novels available.  :)  -The search function for our library is glichy, so I get strange results sometimes (ie. wrong publishers)-

I agree with Jennifer.  Check the library.  I have borrowed several graphic novels from them.  Saved me money, and saved me space because I don't have to store it.
