Hi all... I have just starting collecting recently and have a good idea of what I want to complete my collection. Now to buy the comics I need to achieve this, I was looking for some advice on which comics would be sound investments to buy now and re-sell sooner than later to gain the profit needed to purchase the ones I really want. I know you can never go wrong with the usual popular titles (Spiderman, Batman, etc.), but are there any key issues or titles under $50 that have not yet peaked ?

I recommend buying Thief of Thieves #1. It's a hot book and I believe it's still got some life before it reaches it's peak. Currently it goes from anywhere between $50 to $75 in NM condition.

Don't expect to get rich off it though!

This question has been answered ad nauseum elsewhere. I would recommend doing a search for this topic.

That being said....if you really want to gamble on turning quick profit, that is EXTREMELY difficult wiht collectibles. I guess I would advise buying variants. While they all seem to usually go down in value, if you buy them right away you can usually turn a quick profit....if you are very active and aware.

What comicuniversity said!

Honestly somebody should sticky a post with the title, in all caps, saying "HOW TO MAKE QUICK $$$ SELLING COMICS!!!", so people can see it. Then, in the post itself write "Give up while you are still ahead!".



ComicVortex

Current specials:

Get 30% Off Select Comics
For every comic you purchase from our 'Bargain Bin' (those priced $1 or less), another comic purchased over $1 will be $30% off (refunded via PayPal). eg. If you purchase 10 'Bargain Bin' books, then 10 books purchased that are each over $1 will recieve this refund, etc.

Free Shipping

Every domestic order of 25 or more comics gets FREE SHIPPING (Media Mail). Though I can't provide Free Shipping on foreign orders, we do offer a $5 refund on postage for purchases of 25 or more comics to foreign countries or a $10 refund if you buy 50 comics (again, foreign orders only).
