I recently came across a copy of Avengers #1 without a cover. Actually, there is a cover except that it's a cheap photocopy and isn't even attached to the comic. I think it's there mostly for protective purposes. The comic is pretty beat up, the pages are brittle with numerous rips and tears. The spine looks like it was taped or glued perhaps and there is even a page missing (ads on both sides). If there was a Poor minus (PR-) grade that's what this is. Amazingly however, the entire story is intact. Not that I've decided to sell it, I may just hold onto it for the cool factor, but would there be any kind of market for this?

You might actually be able to get about $50 for it. A good copy is worth about $575 and I figure a PR- should bring 10% of that.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

Wow. I thought coverless comics were pretty much worthless. I have an old Batman Annual from the mid-60s that I'm wondering about now.

Batman Annual 6 (Winter 1963-1964)

I was excited once to find a 1954 copy of an Action Comics at a garage sale. Much to my dismay, I realized when I got home that several of the story pages were missing. I threw it up on ebay anyway, and was surprised when I got $35 for it, and it wasn't even a key issue.

So you never know......!

There is actually quite a market for coverless comics...if they are vintage, like that Avengers #1.

The only caveat is that the story has to be complete....so, you actually have something there.

I, personally, wouldn't sell it. I mean, it's Avengers #1. That's a pretty cool comic to own.

Yeah, I'm leaning that way. The twenty or thirty bucks (or whatever) that I could get for it will never bring me back the original. I do have a reprint but that is definitely not the same.

I think there's a few collectors out there who look out for coverless gold/silver age comics for binding purposes.

I also think professional restoration experts also look out for coverless, junkie books to use as "parts".
