"The popularity of comics has continued to generate interest in their value. This guide will show pickers where to pick the good, better, and best comic books for their own collection - no matter what their collecting level - as well as show how they can sell comics for the best money possible. Despite the availability of comic books, condition, composition, message, and era all play a factor in their collectability and value, seen most notably in the pristine copy of Action Comics No. 1, containing the origin story of Superman, that sold on eBay for more than $3.2 million in August. All of these factors can be highly nuanced and this book aims to show pickers how to understand what collectors look for. It will also touch on the history of comic books, look at common reprints and facsimiles, and give pickers a working vocabulary to speak and think intelligently about this exciting and varied collecting field." -- Publisher annotation.
