ComicLink Accepting August Auction Consignments

Posted on 7/9/2013

ComicLink is currently accepting consignments for the August Featured Auction and other upcoming auctions.

“Already, we have seen tremendous interest from sellers interested in participating in our August Featured Auction, which will be our blockbuster event of the Summer” says ComicLink President Josh Nathanson. “Though it is still relatively early in the consignment gathering process, we have already posted many exciting comic and art highlights to our online auction preview. The auction, which starts on August 15, will be a very well-rounded one, with impressive material spanning the collecting genres.

“We are also always accepting private placement, Comic Book Exchange and Comic Art Exchange consignments, and buying collections and valuable comics and artwork outright. For the August auction and other upcoming ComicLink auctions, we are offering generous up-front cash advances for quality comic book and original art consignments. It is the ultimate means of cash generation, providing sellers with the means to satisfy their imminent cash flow needs, while at the same time enabling them to seek top dollar through the auction process.

“The August Featured Auction offers sellers a chance to be a part of one of the best auctions of the year for both vintage comic books and original comic-related artwork. It is bound to be another blockbuster, and it is the ideal auction environment for a seller’s most valuable material. If you already know what you want to sell, and you are interested in reaching the most aggressive comic and art bidders in the world, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to consign to these auctions so that we may reserve auction slots for you. We will be promoting the August Featured Auction at two of the largest conventions of the year — the San Diego Comic-Con and Wizard World Chicago, and we will be bringing both comics and artwork slated for the August Featured Auction to display at our booth (#1100) in San Diego. Items placed to this auction are sure to receive unparalleled exposure to the collecting public.
