      Wonderful experience at Comic Buying Center today! I contacted Mike and we set an appointment to possibly sell my comics. Mike was so knowledgeable and friendly. He showed me around the store, offered me something to drink and walked me thru the buying process. HONEST. Very refreshing to experience. He offered me a great and fair price and we were done. It was so relaxed we ended up talking a little about our lives outside of comics. Great time today. Thanks Mike!

      I was recently tasked with selling the large comics collection (around 7000 comics), of a relative’s estate. It was almost all DC silver age comics. Peter came to my home in Wisconsin and carefully walked through the process with me and made a very fair offer that day. His knowledge, experience and thoughtfulness made this a very pleasant experience. I’m so glad I called them first!

      Very impressed with this center, and their expertise in comics. Mike and the team were very welcoming, from my initial phone call to my store visit. Gave me a very fair price on my small collection, and showed me cool items that I hope to return to take a look at.Thank you!

      Randomly stopped by because we saw the “Comics 4 Less Store OPEN” sign on the street. A little weird to get into the building because there’s no other signage, but the comics inside were awesome! $2 for issues, $5 for trades. Great quality and selection. Really nice guys too! Definitely will come back.
