ComicLink is still accepting comic books and original comic, fantasy and illustration art for their upcoming auctions. The Spring Featured Auction preview for the auction launching May 14, 2020, and closing the last week of May through the first week of June, already has numerous highlights posted to it from the Golden Age of comic books through the Modern Age. ComicLink can outlay an upfront advance immediately upon receipt of a consignment, and for those looking for an even quicker sale, ComicLink is also still accepting consignments and offering cash advances for material placed to their Focused Auction starting April 10 (a preview with initial consignments was recently posted and will fill out in the coming days and weeks).
Auction placement can be reserved by emailing a prospective auction list to email@example.com or by calling (617) 517-0062 (option 1). In addition to auctioning items for consignors, ComicLink is also always accepting new sellers for the ComicLink exchange marketplace, brokering private placement deals, and buying outright.
