The Comics Club has been a bastion of back-issue bargains for more than 20 years, during which every member of its staff has died and come back to life at least twice. More than 80,000 bagged and boarded imaginary stories are organized in The Comics Club’s issue retirement homes, where sharp-eyed scavengers can rifle through to claim pristine classic issues with covers unstained by baby drool or collector drool. Allow the store’s helpful staff to guide you to the issues of Avengers you’ve been missing, or expand your prized gallery of covers by scooping up the issue in which Superman throws Jimmy Olsen into the sun.

Although prices vary, the average cost of a back-issue comic is about $3.50–$6.
