Collecting Modern Age Comic Books As an Investment ( Part Two )

Updated on September 13, 2016

Hot Comics Update

A couple of months i wrote an article on what modern comic books are worth buying as an investment, this hub is a companion article that will bring things up to date. The original article is found below.

Red Hot Comics

In the previous hub i named a handful of comic books that were raising in value and which i believed would continue to do so. Some of these books are now achieving much greater prices just six weeks on.

SAGA

This epic space opera written by Brian.K.Vaughn with artwork by Fiona Staples continues to steadily rise in value, the book is a great read and is very popular with comic book fans. The number one issue of this book is now commanding prices in the £60 / $90 range, if you can afford one buy it now, if not the number two and three issues are now beginning to rise and are worth investing in.

REVIVAL

This brilliant noir comic puts a new twist on the zombie genre, it is still available for around £10 /$15 on eBay. The book has a loyal fan base and there are rumors here and there of a film in the making.

THIEF OF THIEVES

With a Fox Television series on the horizon Robert Kirkman's ( The Walking Dead ) thriller just keeps steadily rising in value.

PETER PANZERFAUST

This is probably the hottest comic book around at the moment, based on the story of Peter Pan and set during the Second World War there is a BBC television production of the series in the making, number one issues are now reaching around £144 / $200, the number eight issue looks worth investing in, being the first appearance of Kapitan Haken ( Captain Hook ).

MIND MGMT

Matt Kindts book has now been picked up by 20th Century Fox with a movie in the pipeline, some big names have been linked to the project including Ridley Scott as producer, this book is a must buy at the moment, buy it now before it reaches silly prices.

Other Comic Books To Look Out For

Manhattan Projects has a loyal readership and its prices remain steady. A recently released series Nowhere Men is now being sold on eBay for around eight times its cover price, too early yet to say whether this is just a flash in the pan but it is certainly a book to keep an eye on. The variant copies of Amazing Spider-man # 700 just keep on increasing and do not look like stopping yet. My tip for this month though is a book called The Massive, certainly worth a nibble as it is still available at around cover price.

      The original Jonah Hex stuff in All Star Western can be worth a lot of money especially his debut in number 10 but the other two no not worth much sorry.

      What about the old Logan's Run, Jonah Hex, and Nova comics. Are they worth investing in? How about The Death of Superman?

      Great Hub nuffsaidstan, I've been stashing early copies of TofT's away for a while now (for a rainy day!), there appears to be the occasional bargain on eBay. Peter Panzerfaust & Saga seem to be getting harder to get hold of, even though both have barely reached their 10th edition! I think also the new Dark Horse - Brian Wood Star Wars series appears to be generating a huge amount of interest with #1 gaining value rapidly, even though only released in January!! But already getting very hard to find. Mara from Image comics (also by Brian Wood), just out, might be worth picking up a copy (or 2) and also Injustice - Gods Amongst Us, I think is worth putting by, the video game is due out soon and the digital version which is way ahead of the printed,is getting rave reviews!
