Mind me asking how much?  I just sold a long box of 90s drek for $80 on E-Bay and want to see how that stacks up.

I managed to sell a bunch of drek books for $2 each (shocking, I know) and then someone came along and offered me $40 for the 30 or so comics I had left in my short box.  I took that money without hesitation.

Even in Canadian money - that's a score.  I was happy to get $0.25 a piece for this batch of complete drek since it saves me from having to donate them.

Define "drek books" that you got $2 each for, please, because those aren't drek. Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters....now that's drek.

Was just going to ask this.  My drek is post Unity Valiant, Punisher War Journals, generic Image books, etc - drek we all see in every collection.

I sold stuff like Rival Schools: United by Fate #1, Morning Glories #26 and Great Pacific #5. I didn't think I'd be able to give some of it away, much less sell it.

A couple don't look like drek, like Stormwatch 1 and Maxx 1.  Nothing fantastic, but at least not drek.

Went to a garage sale at the 9am opening time they advertised.  Only the wife was there, wasn't sure where her husband's five boxes of comics were - but he'd be there at 1pm if i wanted to come back.  I considered not coming back - but it was only 20 minutes away and she was having a beer at 9am - so i figured it could be interesting.  Got back to find it was only three short boxes of books for $1 each.  I was so excited when I saw the Nyx run, I forgot to flip back for the Deadpool/Cable #1.  Overall - was well worth the return trip!

Nice. I once found a whole box with the entire run (cap America, spidey etc..) EXCLUDING the Archie ones. Maybe that's where they all went ?
