In another thread, I asked about sites to post comics. One of the suggestions was to post sets and runs here. I pulled out a few. Since posting comic books for credits is new to me, I thought I'd ask first to gauge interest. I can't help but to think that I'd be better off selling them on eBay or something and then using the money to buy credits. An extra step, but it could be worth it.

In any case, here's the 4 sets that I've pulled out of the pile.

  1. The Thing 1-36. Marvel. The Thing (a.k.a Ben Grimm) from the Fantastic Four in his own series including his time on the Beyonder Battleworld.
  2. Underworld Unleashed 1-3 and 1-shots: Apokalips Dark Uprising, Abyss Hell's Sentinel, Patterns of Fear, Batman Devil's Asylum. DC. Basically, this is the complete Underground Unleashed mini-series including all single issue companion comics. A total of 7 comics. Here's the Wikipedia page to the series.
  3. Thriller 1-12. DC. A very unusual comic book series set in the very near future. A team of 7 "seconds" investigate unusual occurances. Here's the Wikipedia page on the series.
  4. Typhoid 1-4. Marvel. In case you don't know the character,Typhoid Mary is an enemy and former lover of Daredevil. She possesses psionic powers, including telekinesis. She is mentally ill with multiple personalities. In this mini-series, she is kidnapped by some college students who want to use her for a research project. It doesn't turn out well. Here's her Wikipedia page. It's one of the Marvel Edge comics, i.e. For Mature Readers.

As you can see, I favor some the more unusual comics which is the main reason that I don't think they'd go over here. However, before deciding, I thought I'd ask to see what everyone else thinks.

I was a little nervous about posting graphic novels on here, too. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I liked the idea for several reasons.

I looked some completed collections on Ebay and saw that most graphic novels just aren't going over as well as they could be right now. Plus put in all the fees and it cuts in more.

Also, it works if you have other graphic novels that you're currently collecting on the site. Books, too. Books now cost about as much as graphic novels.

That's what I've been thinking, but you may want to look on Ebay and see how those may be doing right now.

I think he has single issue comics, not bound books.  If he has bound book sets I've usually found takers here for the full set via this forum.

I believe you can now ask for credits for non-postable items in BB.  I don't know if that would cover comic books or not.

Yes, it's single issue comics. I wanted to know if there would be enough interest in my more unusual sets to warrant my listing them here to see if anyone wanted to trade for credits. Doesn't seem to be. I'll try again when I get to the more common comics in my collection.
