When I decided to become a comic book dealer I did what any good aspiring entrepreneur does — I bought a TON of books on comics, antiques, collectibles, marketing, and running a business.
After all, I was smart and a good student. I had bought and sold comics on my own for a few years and done quite well, thank you very much. So all I needed was a few evenings and weekends pouring over those bad boys and I’d be buying my own mansions and driving a Maserati really soon…
That’s… uhh… not how it worked.
I spent five miserable years studying, watching, and transacting off and on, trying to stay motivated. One of the biggest problems is this is an insider game. One of the best resources is the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide (I’m an advisor). It definitely helped me a lot. But I was missing something…
I was so young, I took a selfie!
My first big win, I made $2500 on a single comic.
Back years ago, those big dog comic book dealers would buy a stack of good stuff at once which made me feel like a fly. I hated it yet tried to fight on as hard as I could.
For months, I barely slept as I tried to figure out why I couldn’t do it like them.
Comic Books almost ruined my life as I tried to balance entrepreneurial “success” with stupid school assignments, quizzes/tests, working, and seeing my friends.
It even made me question if I should give up my comic book dealing dreams altogether.
But something kept me going, even aside from my goal of becoming something great.
Part of it was that I wanted to prove to everyone (mostly myself) that I could do it.
I truly became obsessed with beating the minimum wage earning pit ecosystem the world through me into. My mission was clear, I needed to do 3 things better than most others: Buy/Sell, Grade, and understand demand/key issues.
I missed a lot of fun and spent 5 full years studying for this damn thing on and off, banging my wallet against the wall.
But you know what changed me?
The willingness to do whatever it took and never give up…
– combined with –
[and this is the part most people are missing]
Finally developing MULTIPLE SYSTEMs to use all the knowledge available.
That’s the ONLY reason it all paid off in the end. I refused to give up
I ENDED UP becoming one of the top 10 largest comic book sellers on eBay in the world!!
Looking back on it all, I realized one of the hardest things about buying and selling comic books was feeling like I was going through it alone.
(I literally worked for myself and was alone.)
I wished I had someone to guide me through the process and help me figure out what mistakes I was making. See the problem with getting to the top of the food chain in an insider game is nobody wants to f*cking tell you how to do everything correctly.
And it would have been awesome if I had a plan to keep me focused and stop me from mindless internet searching and reinventing the wheel.
I spent a few years working as a private comic book consultant, sharing what I’d discovered during my comic book arbitrage journey. I even created an entire portion of our website just to share it all with everyone (hint: you’re reading it right now).
The largest comic book problem for you (as someone who likes comic books and maybe makes a little bit of money with them on the side besides your REAL job) is that one of the best resources are comic book price guides. The caveat is this is only a tiny percentage of the money making equation. I don’t want others to suffer with the same obsession I did. That’s one reason I made the Better than a Comic Book Price Guide Courses. It’s BETTER than a comic book price guide. What good are prices and categorical information if you can’t apply it? Where’s the comic book pressing guide? Or the comic book investing guide? Or a buying and selling comics for profit guide?
I wanted to create an actual course to simplify the systems I created and adjusted for everyone who couldn’t afford to spend $1,000s on hiring consultants to fly out or even more on customized help from experts like me.
I didn’t want others to suffer during their side hustle and passion the way I did.
Each time I FINALLY cracked a piece of the comic book code, I would wake up at 5am in the morning (IT SUCKED), going through the system I had built and applying all the different tactics and techniques across the board to level up my overall operations. I was both happy AND sad I had just gotten it. Happy because now I felt like I’d be successful in this one area since I could execute 10x faster than most others. Sad because I had only just now figured out a piece and I wanted it all…
Here’s the “brilliant” way I’d approached it at first:
>>>> Buy a bunch of comics that were mismarked at shows. (Still a decent side hustle)
>>>> Get depressed about not having a better buying & selling system.
This was my bedroom floor:
I didn’t want to admit it, but I was wasting A TON of time using flawed selling systems.
I knew I had bought all these great deals, but I wasn’t sure how to sell CORRECTLY.
Deep down I knew I needed a new approach, and lots of people suggested I work at a comic book store or open a comic book store-(Which was horrible advice btw.)
But I wasn’t convinced either of those approaches would work for me. I might not have been good at selling comics but I was REALLY GOOD at buying comics AND coming up with excuses. Here were my biggest concerns:
* I had limited time to study (small side job, friends, school work, yadda yadda).
* I’d already put in so much time, so I didn’t want to start over
* I didn’t want to lift boxes or deal with giant headaches of an flawed business model just to learn how to make a decent amount of money
So, instead of getting help from an expert who could’ve unlocked the secrets of the exam for me…
I stupidly burned through (aka “wasted”) TONS of time
Here’s what I should have done:
YOU SEE THAT??? That’s a MUCH more effective way to sell comics for a good price retail. I created these better than a comic book price guide courses with this approach in mind. Because I’ve helped many collectors, flippers, buyers, sellers, flea market guys, weirdos, & more through the process, I’ve been able to refine it down to a pretty clear cut science.
But realistically, this took years to figure out what actually worked and what didn’t for me to make a nice living sustainably. It took many years. I was young, I could swing that. You probably can’t; That’s one reason I made the Better than a Comic Book Price Guide system. It’s BETTER than a Comic Book Price Guide. It’s the best resource available in the world if you want to make money playing with comic books.
This is for you if:
* if you’re struggling because you haven’t found an approach that actually makes you the amount of money you want without putting in an insane amount of effort if that
* if you want simpler and much more effective methods (time is money) than the ones you find on random free websites, Reddit forums. or YouTube. Those methods are more about demonstrating how to do something. my better than a comic book price guide courses focus only on what is efficient and WORKS. A lot of times it’s simple and straightforward, but it works so damn well it’s scary.
* if you’re ready to jump-start comic book money making OR stop savvy hustlers from making money off YOU. Maybe you don’t even have any comic book arbitrage experience at all. These tactics can completely shatter your ideas of how to buy/sell/press/invest and can motivate you to stop procrastinating and wasting time on blogs and forums using inefficient money making techniques.
“Awesome! I’m in! What’s my cost in the better than the comic book price guide system?
Creating these courses took several years of working crazy hard, a lot of late nights, and tons of both students & mentors who were nice enough to be my guinea pigs/and attempt to challenge these tactics so we could see how effective they really are and eliminate the ones that weren’t. I could charge $1,000+ for my system and still get plenty of students.
I’ll be honest – SO much of the advice I see about pricing digital products is around how to maximize MY revenue. But that’s all wrong in my opinion, when it’s all about how I can make more money. It’s not good long term for anyone because:
As you can tell by now I’m a pretty unconventional free-thinker. So I’m going to be pretty straightforward about how this is priced: My personal philosophy is that when someone buys a course from me for anything over $50/month….the average person should be able to multiply their investment.
So if I had a $97/month better than a comic book price guide system, someone who takes the system seriously and follows it consistently during their comic book money making attack should be making an extra $1k minimum profit per month (in addition to your normal job) in the first 2-3 months. That’s a VERY attainable early goal.
AND THAT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME!!
The better than a comic book price guide system is $97/month, And they really do create awesome results like this all the time.
My goal is that the AVERAGE person ends up with a $1000 profit increase & slowly increases to double or triple that initial profit per month after the first few.
This is the insane commitment I want to live up to with my system.
With this system, you’ll be able to study at your own pace. Freed from having to go to entrepreneurial class when you’re tired after work or school (and like me you probably don’t like non practical charts anyway), you’ll be able to watch, re-watch, and even binge-watch, all the course videos anytime. I’m just thinking to myself how much stuff I learned in school that was just a waste of time. I would have taken a class about making money with comic books over Geometry anyday no thinking required.
Plus, you don’t need to wait until the first of the month to get started! If you’re ready and motivated on January 2nd (for example), that’s when your one-month “clock” starts ticking. You’ll have access through February 2nd, and the system auto-renews until you cancel.
You’ll also save a ton of money. By putting everything online, I’ve eliminated overhead expenses like rent, and I don’t charge you any additional enrollment fees. The only additional materials you have to purchase are some actual comic books (inventory), pressing equipment (if you choose to use this weapon), and a closet space. I don’t waste money on advertising, and I record all videos myself, without hiring designers to create special effects. I pass all of my savings on to you.
Finally, I included 3 different courses with the system. They are all important parts of making money with comic books. You can do 1, 2 or all. I recognize that everyone will do a different amount but I want to at least give you a chance to try all (and you are getting all for the price of 1 anyway so who cares; THE OTHERS are FREE). I also teach every single better than a comic book price guide class myself, and I’m constantly adding new material every single month.
Once you complete this system, you’ll be ready to conquer the longtime human struggle of making SOME money to pay the bills and have some fun (sporting events, vacations, whatever you do for fun) AND having fun at the same time.
