Is the total so far of my collection (I've probably missed duplicates of some issues) and I still have 14 (out of 75) more boxes to go through. Everything from the late 80's up to now was read once or twice then bagged/boarded and boxed, so all are near mint condition. Each title/tpb/mini-series, etc is broken down into it's own pile rather than lump everything in...

What makes a Comic Book Hot???

on Jan 21, 2015 10:55:00 am - 288 views | 0 comments
I have been thinking about this for several weeks as I see newer comics that had a fairly sizeable printing rize up through the three digit ranks. Now you must remember that for me a newer comic was anything printed after 1985. So my perspective might not be the same as yours. Now I don't really expect everyone to agree with what I say here and it would be a pretty sad...

I am sure that a few of you have noticed that I am listing a lot of stuff for sale, here is what I do. I take a quick look at the comic and assign a tentative grade, this is just a first cut so to speak and could be a grade above or a grade below the final grade. (ie: a vf could end up as a fine or nm when it's all said and done. Then I assign a price and...

Let's set up a few rules of thumb here and talk about value vs condition. You can pretty much assume that a near mint (9.4) comic will set the standard for everything else so let's call that our base line value of 1. One being a multiplier of what you might be willing to pay for a Near Mint (9.4) first issue of Imaginary Comic #1 (a totally made up comic book that...

Before I get started I just wanted to thank all of the people that read my blogs. Seeing that sort of response is what makes me want to keep writing them! Please feel free to comment I don't bite, much... When I first started collecting comics back in 1969 (mind you I bought them and sort of horded them before that, but when ever we moved they would get either...

So here are a few tips on how to build a collection that will grow in value as the years go on. When you purchase a new comic buy it because you like to read...

Some thoughts about collectors, investors and speculators

I often see these terms bandied about interchangeably when I feel they are totally different classes when it comes to comic books, while it is true that Individuals may have characteristics of more than one I still think a definition of these terms would be helpful, so I will make the attempt, and you get to correct me if you think I'm wrong.
