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…

First Half 2013 Review

I wish I had something new and exciting to report but the first six months of this year was just a continuation of what we saw in 2012: a weak Bronze Age, a steady Silver Age, and a stellar Modern Age.…

ComicLink August Featured Auction The ComicLink August Featured Auction has ended. I really like these Featured Auctions because they are not dominated by Silver and Bronze Age Marvels. In last month’s ComicLink Focused Auction 94% of the top 50 comics traded were Marvels. This time around Marvel represents only 42% of the top 50 books. DCs came in at 26%, original art 14%...
