Magnificent Marvel Supersale

Librarians Welcome


Let us buy your books!
We're always interested in scholarly, out-of-print, and focused collections. Gifted books, deaccessions, duplicates, and superceded editions can be given new life by selling them to Powell's.



Please note that many of our pre-ISBN titles can only be found right here at This is because we assign pre-ISBN titles our own 10 digit codes which won't match up with other outside bibliographic databases. So please be sure to check directly if you're looking for older and harder-to-find titles.


Credit cards
Powell's accepts American Express, Discover, JCB, Master Card, and Visa. We guarantee your security.

Invoicing can bill your organization for orders of $50 or more – click "Accounts Receivable" in your account information and we'll make it possible. Click here to set up an account.
