Donating comics to charity?

Howdy,

I'm currently trying to ditch around 8 long boxes of comics. My parameters:

1) I don't want to use eBay. It's gotten terrible in the past few years.

2) My local comic shops aren't buying, even at the normal crappy comic shop prices.

3) I've posted an ad on Craigslist ( http://bham.craigslist.org/clt/938484345.html ), but Craigslist doesn't work so well in Alabama.

Has anybody donated comic books to charity before? I'm wondering whether taking a deduction on my taxes would be a good option. How is the deduction calculated, and how would I go about documenting what I donated?

I found a website (http://www.collectibleswithcauses.org), but I don't know anything about them, and they seem a little sketchy (they offer free vacations... "not a scam!").

Any help would be appreciated.

    Why no put an ad up round your school or local library to sell them as a lot for a minimal fee.

    I've donated comics to Value Village before. They put them in a box and labeled them "69 cents each" or a price like that. I left out anything that was too "racy" (Vampirella, for example) because I didn't want to cause them any trouble if a six year old bought it and asked, "Mommy, why is the naked lady taking a shower in human blood?"

    I gave up on eBay and my local comic shops too. Old comics are hard to move (unless they're old enough to be the first issue ever of Superman or something.)

    I believe MileHighComics.com will also buy comics. Probably at a very low price, but hey. Better than nothing.
