Superman #1 – Page 24 only, DC Comics, Supper 1939, designated PG by CGC sold for $405 on eBay recently. I’ve been asked to buy single pages of big book a lot recently, apparently it’s quite the trend. To date I’ve stayed away only because I’m not so sure of this market. A friend told me to look up Superman…

Marvel Comics Presents #72, Marvel Comics, March 1991. I was talking comics with a pal of mine and somehow we got on the topic of books the market is ignoring. We’re both opinionated which can sometimes make for difficult conversation. Luckily comics aren’t quite politics and the passions they inflame have a hard time spreading across a convention floor. We…

Captain Marvel #26, Marvel Comics, May 1973. I was chatting with one of my pals at the shop the other day and he was telling me about a nice little comic pick up he had just made. War Is Hell #9 is the book he snagged, he told me it was hot book because of all the spec around Thanos, the…

Active Comics #6, Bell Features, August/September 1942, Graded CGC 5.0 Cream to Off White pages sold for $326 on last week’s big ComicLink auction. I won this auction but I actually didn’t mean to, I mean I’m glad that I won it but I didn’t expect my bargain basement bid to actually win the day. I’m not sure why this “Canadian…

Superman #246, DC Comics, December 1971. This guest Undervalued Spotlight comes courtesy of long time reader Sonny Zymali. Take it away! I feel like I’ve got a good pick for an undervalued book that has had me scratching my head for over a year now. With the DC Extended Universe in full swing both on television and in theaters, I feel…

Magnus Robot Fighter #1, Gold Key, February 1963 A small stack of Gold Key’s came into the shop recently, the best book in the bunch was a beat up copy of this week’s Undervalued Spotlight pick Magnus Robot Fighter #1. I poked around trying to come up with a price and was surprised at how low the value is in…

Walking Dead #1, Image Comics, October 2003, Graded CGC 9.8 with White pages sold for $3,000 on eBay recently. I can’t believe the legs this book has. I’ve counted Walking Dead #1 out after it went past $1,000 – I flipped every copy I got. I’ve counted Walking Dead #1 out past $2,000 – I flipped every copy I got. Well…

All Top Comics #8, Fox Feature Syndicate, November 1947 It seems I’ve been neglecting the Golden Age of comics lately, only 2 of my last 19 posts have been devoted to what is probably the best hunting ground for undervalued comics. This week I’ll address this error in judgment with inspiration that came from my good buddy Jay and his…

Last updated on May 17th, 2017 at 08:40 amGiant-Size Creatures #1, Marvel Comics, July 1974 Recently I did a small con and didn’t have a lot of room on my table. I had to lose some bins so out went the Sgt. Fury section, the Harvey Comics section, the Dell photo cover and Westerns section as well as the Giant-Size…

Strange Adventures #205, DC Comics, October 1967 The Silver Age has seen heavy speculation on all 1st appearances of note. Pure speculation can put strong upward pressure on prices as we rush to own these key issues before they “explode” in value thanks to some future exposure/popularity that we hope the character will enjoy. Characters like Poison Ivy from Batman #181…

Batman Adventures #1 FCBD Edition, DC Comics, June 2003 Only a few more sleeps until Free Comic Book Day. Your local comic shop is the place to be this Saturday May 6th, they will be giving away a lot of free comic books. My shop ordered a whack of comics for the event, it’s our biggest order ever for Free Comic…

Booster Gold #1, DC Comics, February 1986, Graded CGC 9.8 with White pages sold for $371 on eBay recently. I was vaguely aware that there was a market for Canadian price variants from the 1982 to 1986 period where Marvel and DC printed the bulk of the issues showing the US/CDN/UK pricing while running a separate batch just for the…

Sensation Comics #20, DC Comics, August 1943 I was reading up on the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, lots of hype online and lots of general excitement. I thought I’d comb over some old Wonder Woman comics and see if I can find an interesting book that is not one of the usual suspects. I found a few actually and after…

Avengers Annual #10, Marvel Comics, 1981, Graded 9.6 Raw by CBCS sold for $87. I saw this on eBay thought this deserved a write up. So CBCS has started this raw grading service and books graded through this service are starting to pop up everywhere. Obviously there is not enough data to tell whether the hobby has embraced this new…

Forever People #1, DC Comics February/March 1971 This week’s Undervalued Spotlight shines on Jack Kirby’s seminal Forever People #1. I was drawn to Forever People #1 as I was reading about the online April fool’s joke that had Matt Damon playing Darkseid in the upcoming Justice League movie. At least I think it was an April fool’s joke? Anyway the…

Our weekly look at an auction item that piqued our interest continues. DC Comics Presents Harley Quinn #1, DC Comics, 2014, Graded 9.6 White Pages by EGS Global sold for $25. I saw this on the just past ComicLink auction I have a few questions; Who the hell are EGS Global? Why is their book only getting 25% of a…
