  1. Nothing feels as good as picking up a holy grail comic from the golden age or silver age. Every comic collector has a book that started there passion. Mine was Superman 75 "the death of Superman" ever since then the hunt for comics sparks that inner child that says " comic books are the coolest thing on earth" Collect what u love and cherish that moment because nothing says the magic of wonder like comic books. :-)

    1. I agree...though I cannot recall what mine was...I think it had a lot to do with McFarlane and his run on Amazing Spider-Man. It was then when I first noticed that they were going up in value.

      Comics sure are magical and they still are the coolest thing on the planet...well, to me they are anyways. Thanks for the great comment and to see you around Total Comic Mayhem!

    1. Yes, I have a bunch of lists that have sleeper issues that haven't quite taken off yet. They are listed in the links at the top of this site marked "Key Issue Alerts", "High Grade Alerts", and "On The Hunt."

      On the Hunt usually has key issue lists of various titles. So far there is X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Batman, and Amazing Spider-Man key issue lists.

      Key Issue Alerts and High Grade Alerts will have posts to specific comics. So far the Fantastic Four issues listed there are pretty much sleepers. So is the Thor issue.

      Congrats on the score and thanks for commenting and reading!

  3. I love the site and check in regularly to see what is new. I have a question and I can't think of a better person to ask....what is the real-deal, cgc certified 1st appearance of Skaar. I am putting together a collection and there are a few different schools of thought out there about his 1st app and I thought I could bring it before a Master Jedi for a definitive answer.
    Thank you and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS

    1. Thanks, I'm trying to make Total Comic Mayhem as informative as possible, so it's nice to hear that my hard work is paying off somewhat. As for your question, I'm not sure if CGC has certified a first appearance of Skaar or not. I do know that they put Skaar cameo on their slabs for CGC copies of World War Hulk #5.

      As for the first appearance of Skaar, this gets a bit annoying, because his actual first appearance in publication is in What If Planet Hulk #1 (2007). However, there is a subject of debate because this first appearance is in an alternate reality from the normal Marvel Continuity. Also, the character was not really named in the What If comic. So, there is the other camp that says Skaar's first appearance is really in World War Hulk #5.

      Personally, I think the first published appearance of a character should be his first appearance, but the industry seems to disagree, examples are Hulk 180 (first brief appearance of Wolverine) as opposed to Hulk #181, X-Men Annual #14 (first brief appearance of Gambit) as opposed to Uncanny X-Men #266.

      Personally, I would say What If? Planet Hulk is Skaar's first appearance, but take in mind, I'm not in the industry so I don't make the calls for when they actually do confirm his first appearance issue. Honestly, if you really like the character, I would get both issues unslabbed at really high grades (much cheaper). When the industry does confirm the character's official first appearance is when I would send them in to get CGC graded.

      Thanks for the question and for reading. Don't be shy in sharing posts on facebook or twitter that you like (it would be nice if more readers shared) and have a Merry Christmas, too.

  4. hi could you do a article about storing high value cgc comics please. many thanks.

    1. Not really much to write about concerning that. There are CGC comic boxes you can get, as well as well as the plastic sleeves if a CGC comic didn't come with a purchase. You can buy them at your comic shop or eBay. Also store them in a room around room temperature. Too cold and the CGC case may crack. Too hot and it may melt. I tend to keep mine away from light as well, just a habit.

  7. maybe even a FN, sorry lol....

    1. Let's say the most is FN for those books. You have four minor keys...Cap 162, 183, X-Men 219 and 248. For those minor key issues, a higher grade is needed. FN copies aren't really that great of investment comics. 248 is a copper age book and not really a super key...FN doesn't cut it.

      You can stash those books, but you'll wait a really long time for them to produce any decent return on investment.

    1. It's all a learning process. I'd keep the Machine Man #1 as well. Did you buy those in a lot?

  9. You should do a series on recalled/printing error comics. There's a few I can think of that are valuable and have been for some time ie Venom Lethal Protector #1 black foil or Universe X Spidey #1, ~Jesse

    1. Hi Jesse...I may do something along those lines. There's already a great resource that's dedicated to what your suggesting, I think. It's called Recalled Comics or something like that.

  10. 1st time visitor and I must say...this site is top notch. Tons of information available with a simple click. I am little over a year into comic collecting. My goal is to get 10 -15 keys and pass them down to my son. Here is what I have so far:

    1. GL #76 CGC 8.5 White
    2. ASM #129 CGC 9.4 White
    3. IH #181 CGC 8.5 White

    Up next is FF #48 (8.5 - 9.0), Brave & Bold #29 (6.0 - 7.0), GSXMen #1 (9.0 - 9.2)

    Keep up that great work...you gained another reader.

    1. Some great ones you got there, and glad you like the site and find it useful. Does your son have any interest in comics?

      Got some nice high grade comics on your want list.

    2. Appreciate the reply and yes he does. I would like them in higher grades but can only get what the bank account allows...haha. Probably will shift my focus to a Silver Age key or two after the FF pickup.

      Delete
    3. Awesome that your son is interested in comics. Will definitely be an easier choice to leave those comic investments to him and be sure he'll actually get the most value out of them if he decides to sell them later. Starting next year, I will be going back to good ole Silver Age and maybe might even pick up a Golden Age key issue investment.
