BUYING COMICS & COLLECTIONS!
NEC Norwood DOES buy some comics and collections. Prices depend on not just the books themselves, but also the condition they're in. Please call us at (781) 769-4552 and ask to speak to the manager if you're interested in selling us your comics. We are primarily interested in PRE-1975 Marvel and DC superhero comics, along with some later key issues. (That said, what we need often changes on a week by week basis!) The Norwood location does not buy trading cards, action figures, Beanie Babies, posters, or other collectibles/memorabilia.
