Why You Should Save Your Comics

Action Comics 1st edition

Are you guilty of saving your favourite comics, piles of them collecting dust in the back of your wardrobe or in a box in the attic?

Just me then… well not really, but every now and again I come across a few comics that are mixed up with some books or magazines. Great memories of reading them when I was a kid and the jokes are still as funny!

There is a good reason for keeping a select few of them, just recently the LA Times reported that a copy of a comic book featuring the debut of Superman in 1938 was sold for $1.5M thats about £1M at todays rates. Do you have one hidden away somewhere (maybe your dad does?).

I’m not sure that the Beano or Dandy will sell for as much, but it just goes to show that those collecters of comics are prepared to pay big money for those special first editions.

Check out those boxes in the attic, I’m off to check mine now!
