  1. Thanks for the list, after reading this ive realised how poor my Bronze age collection is, i have fantastic Silver and Modern age collections, now il have to do something about that Bronze, many thanks Frosty

  2. No problem, and thanks for checking out my blog...feel free to check back often and send your friends this way.

  3. After carefully looking over my collection, I must say that my collection really needed work. Thanks to all your comic book info my collection has greatly improved. I now not only have one hell of a silver age, bronze, copper and modern collection. The best thing about my collection is that 80% of them are CGC signature series. Once again, thank you.

    1. I have many signatures from many various key titles by Stan Lee.

    2. Great! Stan Lee's signatures are extremely valuable and it is not a wonder why they are. You made some great choices there!

    3. i have hundreds of bronze age comics could any of you help me with them. i would like to sell them.

    4. It really depends on what kind of bronze age comics do you have?

  4. Thanks for the kudos, and I'm glad my info has helped to improve the over-all value of your collection. That's one of the main reasons I started Total Comic help those from making the mistakes I made collecting comics as an investment.

    I had to learn things the hard way, and I'm thrilled that what I learned is helping other collectors out there. Your collection sounds like it's rockin' an rollin'. Who is your favorite signature so far?
