Top 10 Most Valuable Comic Books That We All Want In Our Home Library
Those comics in your attic might be worth a little more than you think. Today, we’re counting down the top 10 most valuable comic books.
For this list, we are looking at the value of comics based on their highest recorded market value - though it’s important to note that the condition of the issue at the time it was sold played into the recorded price.
The first Captain America comic was published in 1941. It sold a million of copies at that time but now it is worth 731, 000 dollars.
The first Marvel Comic – 350 thousand dollars. It was published in October 1939 and it included the appearance of Carl Burgo’s android superhero the Human Torch and anti-hero known as the Sub-Mariner.
The Superman volume 1 comic book - $358, 500, dated 1939, was the first comic dedicated to the Man of Steel. This book doesn’t come cheap, with a restored copy currently sitting on Ebay for over one hundred thousand dollars.
Speaking of grading, Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s “Tales of Suspense” #39 – 375, 000 dollars, the first appearance of Iron Man, is a major example of the effects of a high grade on major collectibles. This 2012 sale was likely also buoyed by the attention that Iron Man has been given as a movie character in the years since the first Robert Downey Jr. film was released.
This copy of “Flash Comics” #1 – 450, 000 dollars, the first appearance of the Golden Age Flash and Hawkman, is from this collection. It sold in 2010 for what was, at the time, the second-largest amount of any comic book ever (of course, to show just how much in flux the industry was at the time, the highest sale at the time was a month earlier and two different highest sales occurred later that same year).
