Comic Book Back Issues and More!

Recently launched, Comic Book Back Issues and More is a helpful one page website, linking out to recommended online retailers for (yes) comic book back issues, as well as action figures, statues, t-shirts, collecting supplies, and more.

For example, MyComicShop.com is the go-to for most Modern, most Copper, and some Bronze Age back issues, however for Silver, Golden, and other key issues, eBay or a premium retailer such as MetropolisComics.com may be the way to go.
