So I was rearranging my bookshelf when I got to the comic book section. After putting all my favourite comics+trades on the self (not bagged and boarded because I like to think that somewhere a comic nerd is having a heart attack upon reading that), and putting all the okay books in their bags and put in a box under my bed. I got to thinking what should I do with those few comics that I can't stand? 
Now I could sell them but I don't want to through the hassle. I could give them away but I don't know anyone who wants an issue one of a story with out the rest. So I come to you the ComicVine masses what do you do with the comics you can't stand?

I paid AUS $26 each for Emperor Joker and Phoenix Warsong. Sure, they were some of the worst things ever written, but I still paid for them. I'd give them to someone who would genuinely appreciate them, but they suck so bad I'm struggling to think of anyone who would.

Sell them.
 
Though that kind of makes it feel even worse because you get so much less. It is like "Man, I F'ed up."

 I don't buy comics anymore unless I already know they'll be good. 
 
I mean, there are thousands of comics and dozens come out every week.  There are undoubtably good comics that any reader has yet to pick up.  There is no reason to spend money on a bad book.

I usually give them to a friend that also reads comics, in hopes that they may enjoy the book.

Give them to a charity shop. Seriously, I used to work at one, and they really do sell ALL SORTS of crap there. And it's for a good cause. I'm sure they'd be delighted if you donated them.

@mimschkin: thats a great idea I'm gonna try to give them to a used bookstore or something 
 
I usually give them to a friend but I always warn them that I didnt like it, tell them to read it and give me their opinion on it :)

@damswedon: I will soon be going through my comics, and the ones I don't want are either being sold back to a comic shop for pennies apiece, or on ebay.  I got a Free Comic Book Day issue once that was so bad I actually took it back to the store.  I didn't even want it in my collection, and it was free! lol

I keep them, I have lots of single issues of comics I never continued or got into collecting.  Maybe one day I'll give them away but for now they are bagged and tucked away with all the rest.  
 
LOL @cbishop for returning a free comic, that's hilarious.  Donating them like mimschkin said sounds like a good idea too.

Put them in the corner and scold them relentlessly for how bad they are until they cry.  If you find no success in this strategy, try, try again.  :)
