      Most books from the 1990’s are worth very little if anything and can be found in 25 cent boxes at most comic book conventions. Thanks for the question!

      Hi and thanks for your inquiry. That’s a lot of books. If they are all superhero type there is a better chance they are worth something. There were quite a lot of comics published during that time period so there is a chance they may not be worth much. The best place to start on your quest is our free comic value resource. With that many comics you may want to pick up a copy of the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, either the download version or print. Good luck on your search!
