  1. Hello mayhem; its oraldo I have question? On ebay I saw a seller selling his copy of superman vol.2 1 cgc 9.9 copy $400.I know it has modern metallo, but that's a lot for a copper age comic.

    1. Maybe true, but we are talking about 9.9s here. Quite rare even for Copper Age comics.

  2. Fight club 2. Great comic, and movie started filming, and soon TV series. Buying a signed 9.8 copy for $400+ . Fastest comic to rise in price. Guess because of FF 1 . Greatest movie of 20th century.

  3. You meant FC 1 [ fight club 1] ? Agreed!

  4. Thanks a lot for making this list. I am a new collector and knownign the keys is tough. I appreciate your hard work

  5. Sir what's the chances of doing a current up to date list of long term investments on all comics to include modern and bronze comics?

  6. What's the chances of making a up to date list on long term investments on all comic ages from now to silver? I'd greatly appreciate it if so as I am a new collector but limited on what I can spend atm, and don't have much to spend either. Thanks for your site it's so full of useful information.

  7. Could you make a list of long term investment comics under 100? Or comics you will think be good long term investments for 100 or lower?

  8. What's your take on Comico Primer 2, first appearance of Grendal? No one ever seems to talk about this book , but it's very rare and Grendal is an underrated character in my mind...

    1. 1st Grendal I've mentioned on here before, said it was under-valued and was challenged on that. I still think it's an over-looked and under-valued book.

  9. This is cool site I would like to see something on current comics if possible

  10. I would love to see this site cover current comic issues

  11. Hey Mayhem. How about doing a on the hunt section on the infinity stones and order of appearance and values of each comic they appear in. Not sure if you did that already but it would be cool. Thanks

  12. Hi Mayhem, I'm thinking of getting Shazam #1 the first appearance of Shazam since golden age at $150 9.4cgc. Is it a steal? Thanks

  13. Hi mayhem, im thinking of getting shazam #1 the first appearance of captain marvel since the golden age for $150 at 9.4cgc. Is it a steal?
