Per the North Carolina Dept. of Revenue website and the Classic Auctions website, the assets of retailer Silver Bullet Comics were seized for nonpayment of North Carolina taxes and were scheduled to be sold at auction on Oct. 8.
The auction site lists everything that was to be sold, including about 50,000 assorted comic books, various statues, trading cards, shelving and the cash register, among other items. Pictures of some of the items can be found here.
Earlier this year Silver Bullet Comics closed down their retail location and turned into solely an online shop. Since then, many customers have posted complaints on two Blog@ posts — found here and here — about missing orders. They currently have an unsatisfactory ranking with the Better Business Bureau of North Carolina.
And once again, Silver Bullet Comics shouldn’t be confused with the news site Silver Bullet Comic Books, which announced recently that they are changing their name.
