We'll help you get the maximum value for your comics. Our specialists will orchestrate every detail -- grading, appraising and listing each book for sale and marketing it to prospective buyers worldwide. NewKadia has a proven track record in maximizing your profit.
We individually grade and list every book at its current market price. Your payments are based on the true value of each comic book. Click for a sample of the reports you'll be able to view online.
Selling in bulk to someone else
When collections are sold in bulk a great deal of profit is often left on the table. Have you graded and appraised each of your books at today's market prices? Let NewKadia's 20 years of experience go to work for you.
You'll earn more working with us than selling all the comics in bulk. For example, one comic published in 2003 sold in 2012 for $10,000. If you sell in bulk would you recognize that book was in your collection?
Per book fee *
We Pay You
$ .10 ***
* The per book fee is:
$4.79 if you arrange and pay to ship the books to us, or
For books with a cover price 35¢ or less
$3.19 if you send 250 or more with a cover price 35¢ or less.
$2.99 if you also arrange and pay to ship the books to us.
Another example: You sent us more than 250 books with a cover price of 35¢ or less. One of them has an Overstreet Guide value of $195.   We list it for $195. Every 3 weeks it remains unsold, its price drops 1%. In 3 weeks its price is $193.05. And, in this example, it's bought with a 10% coupon (saving $19.31). Total paid is $173.74. We pay you 60% ($104.24) minus $2.99 = $101.25.
** 'Percentage' is the percentage used to start the calculation of your share of the sale price. Once the per book fee is also deducted your share of the total paid will be less than the percentage listed.
*** If the per book fee is more than the Sub-total, your share for that book is 10¢ If your book fee is $2.99, you receive more than 10¢ only when a book sells for $6.18 or more. If your book fee is $4.79, you receive more than 10¢ only when a book sells for $9.68 or more.

We once sold on eBay (but it was much more work) and received 2,300 positive customer feedbacks. To read them, click here.
How big is NewKadia?
We're the biggest internet-only comic store in the world and we sell about 10,000 comic books each month.
In 2012, over 1.7 million shoppers visited our website -- that's 141,000 shoppers each month.
It's impossible to give you an exact value until we grade each comic. That's because a comic's value is based on two factors: (1) What issue it is and (2) the condition it is in.
• To determine a comic's title and issue number, go to the small print (it's usually found at the bottom of page 1) and read its official title and issue number. Then, search for the comic at NewKadia.com to see the Overstreet Price Guide values for that issue.
• To see the criteria we use to grade each book, go to a sample grading chart here.
But remember, the REAL VALUE TO YOU of any comic book is the price a buyer is willing to pay for a comic, MINUS YOUR COST (in time and advertising) to FIND that buyer. So, even if the Overstreet Guide values your comic at $25, recognize that without an effective way to reach potential customers, that value is pretty much meaningless. Essentially it's a guess at its GROSS value, before deducting the cost of selling it.
What's your ability to reach 1.7 million comic book shoppers each year to display your comics? What would your advertising cost be to find a buyer for each book? You must subtract your actual costs and the value of your time from what a book's value is, to determine the real NET value of any comic. Or, you can have NewKadia sell your comics and avoid all that. When we sell each book, NewKadia's percentage and per book fee are your costs. And you don't pay the costs upfront. Instead, our percentage and per book fee are deducted from the amount we receive for each book and you get the balance.
Will comic buyers find my books on Google?
Yes! For example, do a Google sarch for "Spiderman comic books" -- we're near the top of the page.
Click here to see.
Yes. We spend about $50,000 per year advertising on Google and elsewhere to attract buyers.
How accurately will you grade my comics?
Our professional grading team has graded over 1 million comic books. Approximately 1 in 9,100 books is returned with a claim that it was mis-graded. That's a customer satisfaction rate of over 99.98%
How many people sell with NewKadia?
Over 500 people have sold their comics with us. No amount is too small or too big. One seller sold 1 book only (it was X-Men #1). In contrast, the biggest seller has sold over 25,000 comics.
What do customers say about NewKadia?
Are my books insured?
Yes. Our premises are insured by Collectors Insurance Services, of Hunt Valley, MD. Collectors Insurance Services is one of the country's leaders in the insuring of comic book inventory.
