how would you move a nonsensical amount of trades

I was recently given around 12 boxes of DC trades that i been slowly and i mean slowly selling...

Iv used ebay, fb sales, craigs....
Iv been out of the game for awhile any looking for suggestions
(Or buyers!)
Iv been selling them dor roughly half the cover
Thinking i may do some local shows to sell if 50% off reasonable for brand new trades

List them here. Trades qualify for media mail since they're ad-free, right? I, for one, would be interested in filling in some Dc trades holes cheaply.

Do you have a Half Price Books or other used book store you can take them to?

I see lots of multiple related trades/hardcovers go for decent money on eBay all the time. In fact, they usually get too rich for my blood. Sellers put them together in themes like characters or story arcs.

The problem these days is shipping, which has gotten more expensive.

This is an idea. However, if Half Price Books even takes these, they won't give you much $.

Unless a book is dirty, HPB will take it, but they may just make a token offer and recycle it. When they make their offer on a big buy, you can say "Are you going to recycle any of this?" and get those items back without affecting your offer.
