    Long story short, I'm pretty much leaving comics altogether because they're just not fun anymore. I've gotten together a fairly comprehensive list of all the grahpic novels I've collected over the years with the intent of selling them off or just unloading them at a comic shop since I don't read them anymore and it's just become a hassle to keep them around. I know that I'm going to get jacked on cash value, but I was wondering if anyone could give me a rough estimate for what I can expect to get for this lot:

    Anyway, thanks for looking/the input.

    If you put the HoM Mutopia TPB on eBay you MAY get $20-30 for it. I have no clue why--must've had a short print run.

    Also one recent auction for the HoM Academy X TPB netted $20.

    From what I've seen, TPBs really don't have a large secondary market except a select few. Your best bet would eBay or see if your locl shop buys books.

    Doing a few more searches and I found that Nightwing: Rough Justice had one auction ended at $21 and another that ended at $45.

    Hunt for Oracle is going for $44 on one auction that's currently running.

    Also, if putting stuff on eBay, allow international bidders -- personally I've bought a fair amount of stuff from sellers in the US/Canada.

    Good place to get some quick price checks would be on Amazon. If it's not currently in print, you'll get at least face value, maybe more.

    If it is, expect to get roughly half on average.

    I'd run 'em all, sell the ones in print as a lot to be done with it, then individually sell off the ones that are out of print. You'll lose a little money, but I think you'd come out ahead by saving time.

    I work at a comic shop currently and, honestly, it all seems to depend on the owner's mood, his current stock, and what he thinks he can sell 'em for (usually, we offer not much at all). Me? I'd sell 'em on e-bay or through Craig's List unless you're desperate or just don't care.
