Depending on your definition of 'modern age', yeah I'd go with TMNT #1 or Gobbledygook #1.

Big signatures are REALLY annoying.

I've heard differend definitions. Some say that Modern Age started in the mid 1980's. I've also heard comics from the mid 80's to the beginning of the industry bust in the early 90's referred to as 'Copper Age', and everything after that as being Modern Age. Some say we're still in the Copper Age, and it is synonymous with Modern Age.

It goes for more than that. Dealers are paying $2000 for ungraded 8.5 and $2400 for ungraded 9.0.

If I were to take a crack at this I'd set that Modern age at 2000-Current and insert -Prism Age - 1992-2000

Or maybe it should be called the Bubble Age in reference to the bubble that burst the market. Think

I always thought modern age was like a 12 year period at max. In the early 90s the modern age didn't seem to address things from the 70s. Modern to me would always be last ten years.

Yeah, my brain still holds onto the *old* modern age. Also, I'm not familiar with Atom Age. Is that a relatively new wrinkle it it?

Well, if modern age is that now, the I guess Walking Dead #1 would probably be it.

Big signatures are REALLY annoying.

Grimm Fairy Tales (Wizard World Philly #1). I'd roughly say it's worth between $650-800 in NM. A VF copy sold for about $425. All are hand numbered to 500 copies and autographed by the creators (Ralph Tedesco and Joe Tyler). Their is one on the bay @ $199.99. I DOUBT it will go for that, but you never know. Keep your eyes peeled on it, and watch the price climb and climb as more people find it online.

I got 3/5 worthwhile books. New Mutants 87 and 98 along with NYX 3. Spiderman 300 rounds the list.

Good call on walking dead. I wouldn't count the Grimm. Ultimate SM1 and maybe 2 I am not familiar with. I collected as a child and my top book was X men 266 which has potential. As an older and wiser collector I buy first appearances only, predominantly silver age.

Hey BC it should be 12 years. 90's was the penny age and we are currently in a fecal age.

Actually I think the "current" age will always be the Modern Age. What we need is a name for the last 20 years. Personally I think the new Modern Age has just started with the DC 52 and Marvel Now. What better time to start a new age.



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.

On the other hand, doesn't the fine art world have a "modern age" AND a "post-modern age"?
