If you know much about collecting comic books, then you know condition is everything. I was just writing a piece about comic book collecting and referred to how some kids when I was growing up didn’t treat comic books so well. That is one thing you’ll learn about comic book collecting if you want your comic books to hold value. Of course, not all of them are going to be that valuable, yet they are valuable in a different way to you as a collector of comics.
There is much more to comic book collecting than just getting the comic books themselves. You can go to comic book conventions, enjoy the movies and television shows about some of them and much more. In the 90’s it was common for Stan Lee to be at comic book stores signing autographs. You can go to special events like that, too. It is also interesting to look up what comic books are worth the most money and which ones of them are for sale online.
You do know that there are online auctions of course, which means you can sometimes get these comic books at a cheaper price. Did you know that the first Superman comic was made in 1938? I just saw that, and I had no idea that it was out that early. I figured Superman came out in the 50’s or 60’s. You might not know, but comic book collecting was really starting to become popular in the 60’s and 70’s.
There used to not be quite so many comic books out there. Of course, there were still plenty because they were really popular, but nowadays it seems like there is a comic book for everything. Less and less of them will start to be printed as technology dictates the market, but it’s still cool to know that comic books are appreciated.
