Ever wonder if that old collection of comic books you have stashed away are worth any money? Heres a little info to find out if your sitting on a small fortune from your childhood.....

Comic books: In general, the comics that have the most collectible value are those published between 1938 and 1979. Typically within that time frame, superhero comics hold the most value, with first appearance or origin issues being the most sought after. The vast majority of comics from the 1980s and later have little, if any, value today.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, the comics industry experienced a speculator boom of collectors who saw potential in an up and coming collectors market. They bought and hoarded large numbers of each issue, not realizing that they were ensuring the worthlessness of the very items they were hoping to profit on. This artificial demand increased comics print runs, making them virtually worthless in the long term. This misuse of the market by collectors and publishers alike led to the virtual collapse of the comic book industry in 1998.

Comic books have been published for over a century, and collectors categorize them into five ‘Ages’

  • Platinum (1897-1937)
  • Golden (1938-55)
  • Silver (1956-69)
  • Bronze (1970-79)
  • Modern (1980-present)

Rarity, title/issue, and condition determine value. Some popular titles include Spider-Man, Superman, X-Men, Batman, Green Lantern, and Incredible Hulk.
