Buying comics from eBay sellers-

1- Check the sellers feedback and score (important for any buying on eBay)
2- Make sure they seller has a clear picture of the comic you want to purchase. And if the picture is blurry be careful as some people use this to hide problems with the comic itself. You can always ask for another photo and if they don't comply shop elsewhere unless you want to take the risk!
3- Check out their shipping prices as some people will sell comics for a cheep price BUT charge a lot for shipping. Always ask if the sellers will offer S&H deal for multipul purchases.
4- If the comic you are after is rare/old make sure you do your reasearch before investing your money into some auction.  Do a simple google search and look up comics websites..Post on their forums and ask questions.
5- Before deciding to purchas from one buyer look around. Over my many purchases through eBay for comics I've found shopping around for a book is well worth it and can be very rewarding. There are a lot of sellers out on eBay who know what they are talking about when it comes to comic gradings.

When you start shopping you'll see things like the grade values next to the title of the comic. This is a great indicator to tell you how good of condition the comic book is in!
