Try ebay, a lot of great comic stores use ebay to sell their stock.

ebay is the best source, if you can find the items at sane prices and P&P. Not unusual for people to charge £2.50 for a 99p item that would probably cost no more than £1.50 to post. Otherwise most non-dealers will list for 99p as it saves them from paying fees or in lots that reduce the item price down and is worth it with the postage.

Your best bet is to put a saved search on and wait for what you want to come up if it is reasonably common. It will also give you a price range of what people are putting them on for, again dealers can charge a lot more than a private seller.

Silveracre is likely to have stock but they are hideously expensive and should be a last resort if something is scarce. As Tootsie says, use a dealer likely they will rip you off.

If you want to buy some DC Comics, I'm selling over 11,000 privately, so prices are cheap.

Let me know what you are interested in. Email: ian@146.org.uk, or visit my eBay shop. User name: dccollectoruk

Ebay is usually my first port of call. I agree with sentiments about Silveracre - too expensive. Google 'Quicksilver Comics' - I've bought from them many times. Quicksilver are currently running many comics at discount prices. Also try Gumtree and local 'free-ads' papers

Hi, I highly recommend www.milehighcomics.com
They're based in the USA, but don't let that put you off. I've recently placed some orders with them and stocked up on loads of back issues for around 40p - 50p each.
International shipping is free for orders over $10, up to 30 comics ($0.20 surcharge per comic thereafter). But if you want more than 30 comics, you can place multiple orders and have them all shipped together for free.
The prices on their website look expensive but they have regular discount code sales. Recently they had a 60% off code. Currently you can get 50% off pretty much everything with discount code NANETTE2 (new comics at cover price are excluded). Its worth signing up to their mailing list to get up-to-date info on all this.
I recently placed an order for 30 comics totalling $54 on their website. That came to $22.00 after the 60% discount or £13.65 on my credit card. Around 45p per comic on average. Check your credit card terms first, make sure you're not paying extortionate commission fees. Barclaycard seems pretty good for placing orders in US dollars.
There are higher surcharges for trade paperbacks and hardcovers, so you might want to stick to Amazon for these. But for back issue comics you can't go wrong!

I go to www.inter-comics.com for back issues, they have loads and they're cheap too. You can also follow them on twitter @intercomics.

Graphic novels normally from Amazon and monthlies current and back issues from megacitycomics.co.uk or thecomicbookshop.co.uk

As mentioned above Mile High Comics is a good online site.
It's also worth looking at mycomicshop.com and newkadia.com
They're both based in the US and the P&P charges can be quite high, but the comics themselves are often very reasonably priced, so if you're ordering several at one time, what you spend on P&P you'll easily make back overall (espeacially compared to buying from overpriced UK sellers)

I've bought quite a few back issues and current stuff lately from wolfcomics.com and their service has been fantastic.

Incognito Comics or Asylum Books and Games are worth a look
