I would put out some longboxes and have them ridiculously low-priced (25 cents per issue, sometimes 2 issues for 25 cents) and never sold a single issue.
Really?? That's crazy, how bad could your comics have been?
Query: Did you hit up the local craigslist and other free local outlets with comics in the tagline? I do that before any sale from yard sales to flea markets I'll be at, and it draws out the buyers for cheap comics en masse.
(Those kids were just from down the block, I thought it was cool because they pretty much had much better taste than the adults who drove in. They were buying Ditko reprints and Astro City. So these days I try not to run them over in the street or anything.)
I would have bought all your comics for 2/quarter probably and sold them for $1-$2 each.
