Comic Book Collection: Part 1

 

Comic-Book-Collection

In the beginning, I did not collect comic books, but after going to a friend’s house during my second year in high school, he showed me his comic book action figure collection. I thought his collection was cool so I came up with an idea to collect an action figure, a comic book with the character featured in it and then a trading card or something of the like. The idea was to have a mini set for each. However, after purchasing my Batman action figure and then reading the comic that I bought to go with it I was hooked and began collecting ever since.

I spend a lot of money during my teenage years. This was when a bunch of new comic books and comic book companies came out and I loved collecting number one issues and special editions. I also always got a plastic bag and a cardboard insert for them.

Here are some of my favorite comics and I will post more in the future.

    Isn’t Spawn 1 almost worthless?

    Actually it is currently worth about $10. So no compared to many even older comics that have only gone up to about $3 it is doing well. But the worth is what someone is willing to buy it for. So if someone such as me is willing to pay $1000 for it then they usually raise the value in the collectors book.

    When I collected I said in my mind these could be worth money one day, but in my heart I just liked reading comics and I liked #1 issues for some strange reason.
