Comic book prices! Are you a collector or investor of comic books? Do you know the difference? Well, a collector is an individual who has a comic book collection with the intent to keep and display. A comic book investor is one who makes a business or practice of collecting comic books with the intent of selling to others. Many collectors these days are a hybrid of the two. They have some comics they intend to keep for themselves while others are to be sold at some later date. And thus, there is a higher degree of interest in comic book prices.

Hot dog! I have now had the fine pleasure of getting to know a master of comic book pricing tatics.

So if you want to have fun and make a few bucks go check out out Sean's "Comics, Movies and Cash" bundle. 'Nough said!
Well, I guess if you are also interested in current comic-book-prices at the newsstand and such, that also merits some discussion. While cruising some of the bookstores and grocery stores downtown, it looks like single issues are going for $3.00 to about $6.00. Boy, that is sure different from my younger days when they were 10 to 12 cents an issue. I guess that kind of dates me doesn’t it?
It still appears to me, that if you are really interested in a certain comic book line, yearly subscriptions are really the way to go. They can be had for around $20.00 to $30.00, which equates to roughly $2.00 an issue. Definitely cheaper than newsstand prices, don’t you think?
You can also see what Chuck over at Mile High Comics has to offer, although he does deal a lot in back issues, but hey, it’s worth a check.
