Comic Book Investing

Investing in comic books can be a daunting task if you do not know where to start. You can either learn from someone else's mistakes and make your own and learn from those. It is no secret comic book prices have been on the rise for years now. Investors continue to flock to comic books as investing in them can and usually out performs the stock market. Here is a quote from an article on Yahoo and Comic Investing.

 “We found that a significant proportion of the highest value comics have been outperforming more traditional investments like the S&P 500 (^GSPC) or even gold (GCM16.CMX),” said Nilsson.

     Gocompare.com collected information on comic books to determine those that have appreciated the most in price since 2008 compared to the S&P 500’s performance. The top performer was DC's Batman Adventures #12, first published in 1993. The original cost of the issue was $1.25, and in the last eight years, it has appreciated in price to $800, making a 26,567% return."

Make no mistake, not every comic book is worth investing in. Trust me, I learned my lesson over the course of 7 years. That is what eventually lead me to create The Comic Book Guide™. I wanted a place for comic book collectors, investors, and scalpers alike to be able to collect what truly matters to them.
