What's It Worth? Comic Book Collections

I first started collecting comics 1978 when comic book collecting was in its golden years, and there were shops on almost every city corner. My personal preference was for Steve Gerber, who did Howard the Duck and other unusual comics; plus Jack Kirby, who wrote Captain America, Thor and others. Back then, we kept our comics mostly unread in plastic sleeves.

A leading expert in fine and decorative arts specializing in comic books has joined our staff as our auction coordinator. Transferring from New York, he is a jack-of-all-trades specializing in rare comic books. This auction coordinator was involved in the purchase of a comic book for 3.1 million dollars that is in the Guinness Book of World Records. It later resold for an even higher price. It was an Action Comics No. One in pristine condition.

While many Action Comics No. Ones have shown at auction, most are not in mint condition, and we would only pay $50,000 to $100,000. If you have a comic book collection, we would love to see it and bid on it. We will buy for cash or you could consign it to our online auction. If you have the exact comic book pictured here, please get our offer – it may be worth that trip around the world for you!
Let us bid on your valuable comic book collection.. You have seen us in Forbes Magazine, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
