If your hall closet or attic contains a collection of once-prized comic books, you might wonder whether it’s worth trying to sell them. Tech expert Omar Gallaga recently wrote for Wired about how to evaluate your comic book collection, and how to make a little money if you decide to sell it. 

Highlights from this segment:

– Start by cataloging your comic collection. You can use apps that scan each comic’s bar code.

– The value of a particular comic often has to do with new movie or TV adaptations that spark interest in the original.

– If your collection includes comics in excellent condition, that are part of a popular series, consider using a grading service to estimate their value.
