What's the problem? If you were sorting alphabetically then it's an easy fix - just do that and in instances that there aren't prefix titles, then refer to the copyright box in the comic for the published title and use that as your alphabetical marker.

If you aren't sorting alphabetically, then specifically how are you sorting that these titles caused a sorting issue? Given the convo in this thread, gonna disregard use of the word "appropriately" above....

I was thinking about having the Batman crossovers with Marvel characters behind Brave and the Bold (2007) volume in the Brave and the Bold long box.

Also, I did not know if the various villi an focused specials and things like Catwoman: When in Rome should be placed in a certain order or a different box to itself.

Additionally, I was not sure about the Batgirl related comics if it should go in the long box with the two Batgirl volumes and Batgirl and The Birds of Prey with Black Canary/Oracle:Birds of Prey.

I'd probably take a huge bath if I sold my collection. For one thing, with large collections you almost always have to sell it as a lot, which means you're gonna get no more than a buck per issue and usually much less. Anything "of value" can be sold on its own for a decent amount but having a large collection in and of itself doesn't mean anything.

I have some stuff that's worth a little bit... most of the Mirage TMNT, early Archie Sonic comics, some early Image stuff I inherited from my Dad like Spawn #1, and a few Superman and Batman books that are worth something.

BUT none of it is graded - which is a whole expense in and of itself if you hope to get anything close to the value of what you're trying to sell - so technically even those aren't "worth" much of anything.

Collecting comics for any reason but love is a fool's errand, unless you're specifically collecting rare books and have the money to get them graded and appraised.

Yes, I can attest to the difficulty in selling them off. When I went through my entire collection last week I found 41 comics that were duplicates due to upgrades or purchased as a lot and had little choice to get what I actually needed or in the case of Birds of Prey Infinite Crisis era min-run I ditched it. Some of them were pretty nice like I had 3 Batman title issues (#180,198,210) in the Fine range that could have sold around $30 each, but the sure way to unload them and ensure mutual profit is to let them go as a part of a lot to my LCS. I walked out with $80 and all 41 comics taken off my hands.

Is there a master list of all the Batman and Marvel character crossovers? I am missing the first of the two Batman/Punisher because it's not really Batman. Otherwise, I think I have them all. I am going to the first show in driving distance in 20 months tomorrow so I am curious.

Every Green Lantern related book since 1947? Not to mention that you hate the only Green Lantern that I read in Hal Jordan that is impressive and an accomplishment. I mean, I HATE Jason Better Off Dead Todd so I skip his whole period as Robin in my collection until the first part of A Death In The Family storyline.


There does seem to be quite a few Sonic readers/collectors on here. Hopefully both being under the IDW banner we can get a crossover imagined since their brief time being under the Archie banner simultaneously.
