Don’t invest in stocks, invest in comics (11 Photos)

If you stumble across one of these in your attic, you just won the lottery.


    #5 I want!

    • shitfaced

      Your commenting skills are legendary.

      • Shwetank Shukla

        So is your name my friend.

        • negativenanncy

          I believe your name wins in the legendary category sir.

    • dkassa

      I HAVE!!!

    • bob

      You want it? Or you want it in order to sell it?

      • MICHAEL

        To keep, I am a huge Batman fan and this would be a prize to have

        • daveh873

          Wouldn't you rather have Detective Comics 27? I mean… 1st appearance of Batman. It doesn't get much better that that.

    • Moichettepas

      My dad has #3 and the first X-men which, surprisingly, isn't on here.

  • TLSBB1

    i want one

    • Firefighter23

      Just one?

  • Chiefhenry27

    Holy $4 mil for the original Superman….time to hit some old Grandma's garage sale.

    • maraloc

      Funny thing is that that's more money than whatever those comics sold for, ALL OF THEM COMBINED, in the 30s.

  • tv_paul

    And moms everywhere just tossed them out.

    • MylesofStyles

      Just imagine how many brothers and sisters have been spit out.

    • echogeo

      Mine threw out a drawer full of baseball cards. Rod Carew rookie card. Harmon Killibrew, Willie McCovy, Yaz…to name a few.

      • krypto092108

        My dad had the First Superman, Action Comics, and Batman… Then when he left home and came back for them, his sister in law chucked them all out…

        • A BiPolar Guy

          WWII paper drives due to lumberjack shortage was a major factor for the oldest of these. Only a dozen or so copies survived of action #1 and detective #27. Somebody did find a detective #27 a couple of years ago in an attic or such so there could be others. Modern comic collecting pretty much guarentees nothing will be this rare again. And now they are going digital where rarity has no meaning.

  • lackofabetter

    I was gonna buy comics as a kid, but I liked pussy

    • invisible flan

      you are what you eat!

    • gotcha

      which is why you work 9-5…

    • lackofabetter

      Just a joke ladies, Ill admit a bad one.

    • Blumpkin King

      key word – "liked"?

      • Jahhs


    • chode

      one is clearly not exclusive of the other… also, maybe I'm just weird, but these kinda coincide with two completely different stages in my development.


    I one want

  • kramerftw

    Stop reading comics they said. They will not give you anything back they said…. #10 #11

    • Collector

      Actually, once you read them, they are no longer in "mint" condition. So if you read it, it gives less back than if you didn't. Lol. I used to buy one to read and one to go in the plastic.

  • Don

    Yeah…Cause in 73 years I will need 4 million dollars. The time/money made isn't worth it really.

    • Matt

      A real ROI-calculating genius you are.

    • Yessirr

      Thinking is hard, you shouldn't do it to yourself…

    • Chris

      Yes, I'm sure my 90 year old grandmother couldn't use 4 million dollars…

  • Ray

    I think I threw out #9 just the other day. Didn't read it anymore anyway.

    • JAFitC

      Cool story, bro.

    • DaUndeadDodo

      You fool! Just because you don't read it…
      I think I might strangle you.

  • LucretiusCarus

    This is all proof being a Neo maxi zoom dweebie pays off. Big.

    What? No Breakfast Club fans in the house?

  • 80's Baby

    Batman>Superman that is all

    • jjj

      how the hell is does a utility belt beat super powers

      • I went there (ツ)

        Superman is is horrible, leaves no imagination to the drawing board. Lets make a douche bag that can do anything and has a rock to cause ailment


      This is true. Batman always his a kryptonite ring in his utility belt so he can bitch slap Superman whenever he wants. Or read The Dark Knight Returns where Batman beats Superman so bad he retreats to a destroyed fortress of solitude.. But he bangs Wonder Woman after so I guess he won that one.

      • davo

        also, it is impossible to like both characters. you have to like one and hate the other. this is how the internet works

  • Dude Imbibes

    The only ones really worth anything are usually 30+ old. Anything in the past 20? Good luck getting 99 cents.

    • Lil John

      And good luck getting half of this from a dealer.

    • Austin McMeans

      Chew #1 goes for $300, The Walking Dead #1 goes for near $2000, and Saga #1(came out a month ago) goes for about $30. Just sayin.

      • Dude Imbibes

        No you're right there are a few but they are exceptions. Some variant covers are also worth some $$

  • Hunter X

    I've got a few #1's stored away…but they're from the 80's, and nowhere near that kind of worth… 😥

    • Falthor

      same deal here…
      #1 Punisher
      #1 Wolverine (destroyed by cousin 5 yeares ago)
      #1 Punisher war journals (see above)
      #1 Green Arrow with hand painted coiver ($16 bucks last I checked WHOO!)
      #1-50 of the original TMNT comic…
      4 part mini series GI Joe VS The Transformers… no one cares anymore….

    • Dude Imbibes

      Yep I have boxes, BOXES I SAY! All 1985 and newer and not worth a thing. Although I'll store them well so my great, great, great, great grandson can retire early selling those "olde tyme" paper picture books.

    • Matt

      Pretty much anything from the 80s is shite. Few exceptions. Usually when people list their "comic book collections" on eBay or Craigslist, it's 80s and 90s stuff.

  • Jacky romro
  • the_mike

    Invent time machine, find some old change, pay up for a safe deposit box for 70+ years, go get said comics.

    I know that safe deposit box is kind of cumbersome, but no one will believe they are real if they look brand new, so its not like you can just bring them with you.

    • tv_paul

      If you could invent the time machine wouldn't need the comics just go back one day before powerball and buy winning ticket.

      • the_mike

        Yeah, but that would be too easy. After the whole doing the impossible invent the time machine part.

        • Si1entStatic

          ok then, jump back in time and buy as much Microsoft stock the day they go public, then skip forward and buy as much Google stock on their first day. then skip ahead again and prevent Beiber's parents from ever being born…… or is that too labor intensive?

    • u

      Good call on the "find some old change". Would be pretty awkward paying for it with a quarter from 2010…try explaining that one to the comic book store guy.
      P.S. Don't worry, I looked up the value for a 1939 quarter, you're still in the black.

      • Stew

        You'd already be taking a chance with the butterfly effect, but getting the change back in time would help reduce any additional possible changes you caused. But by getting the comic books that your grandfather may have purchased you might unwittingly prevent him from meeting what was supposed to be your grandmother, thereby making you a complete unknown when you returned from your time travel (or go with what ever scenario applies to your coming to be). So on second thought I think it's a safer bet to just go back a day and get the lottery tickets.

    • Ned_Plimpton

      Better yet… Go back & buy 1 share of IBM the day it came out. You'd be the richest man on the planet today.

      Or you could do some unselfish things like.. I don't know… Prevent 9/11, the titanic, Justin Bieber….

      • the_mike

        Nobody would believe me that the Titanic would sink. I would probably get arrested for "having knowledge of a terrorist plot before it happened" when it comes to 9/11.


        • Ned_Plimpton

          You could board the ship & tell the captain to watch out for the iceberg hours before it hits.

          Pull the fire alarm on the top floors of each tower. Would have minimized the casualties by a lot.

          Just put a fucking bullet in Biebers moms head & a safety shot in her bread basket before he comes out.

      • negativenanncy

        Ned the ass whole is suggesting nice things for going back in the future..

        I've got one.. go back and swim the opposite way out of your mom's vag.


        • JustCurious

          Doesn't this suggestion require that you also reverse age your self until you are just a sperm?

          • negative nancy

            What ever makes it more realistic for you man..

            • Ned_Plimpton

              I'm sorry your 2 dads don't give you enough attention.


              • negative nancy

                Me too, They are always so busy giving it to your mom.

                could you please tell her to close her legs..

      • stew

        Go back with your list of where the hottest models were before they were discovered. Take them on as a client, introduce them to the right people, have them so grateful for finding them that they all bed you at once. Rinse, lather, repeat.

    • Yessirr

      Dude, so many of my schemes start with "Invent Time Machine". We should collaborate.

      • the_mike

        We should probably start with finding schemes that don't involve time machines…

        • lulz

          1) Invent time machine
          2) travel back in time
          3) Punch Bush Sr. in testicles

  • Whoopi_G

    It sure would be cool to flip through those.

  • the_mike

    I had a plaque type looking thing that had a cover of #5 on it when I was a kid. Found it in a second hand shop. I always hoped it was a remake, if someone took the cover off the original and mounted it to it….wow idiot.

  • Guest

    tell us more

  • Ned_Plimpton

    I have a Richie Rich comic book from 1994. Anyone know how much it's worth? Should I plan on retiring?

    • Steven B

      ill give you a nickle

      • longshot421

        I'll trade you a 1998 Archie's Digest for it. Sorry, the front cover is missing.

        • Ned_Plimpton

          I've discussed with my people and we've agreed on the deal.

        • bob

          I was wondering why there was no archie comic on here…so I looked it up – Archie #1 is 18 on the list at $212,000 value.

          • bob

            oops, gotta be careful with the hashtag..

    • yup

      No, you should plan on writing Macaulay Culkin and figure out why there was never a sequel.

    • Roger

      I think that I still have a used condom from the other night…How about that?

    • JAFitC

      It is worth nothing. You should still plan on retiring.

  • Gash Hound

    These prices are only valid if the books and other famous books are PERFECT condition, which there are probably 3 of each in the world.

    • I doubt you

      Your name does not go too well with your statement.

  • Ranman

    Comic books = pussy repellent

    • manda

      Yeah if you talking lame pussy. There are plenty of us chivettes out there who would not be running away from a comic collection. And they probably play video games and are actuallly funny too. And some of us even know our way around the kitchen! This site has plenty of photographic evidence.

      • manda

        And some of us open our statements with typo's.

        • Trav1121

          Get him, manda! Back in the day, the original statement might be true but chicks today aren't as shallow and close-minded as they once were. Well, most of them aren't. 🙂

          • Lil John

            If all she wants to do is "hang out" and "party," throw that bitch back!!!
            Get a hobby, girl!

    • HotChivette

      then you= ignorant

    • Rob

      If my hot wife can fall in love with the RPG, and tabletop gaming me. Then I think comic book collectors stand a chance as well.

  • Jezdezpez
    • Silent Bob

      I was going to say the same thing.

  • YouNoMe


  • I_am_golf_c0m

    #10 #11 … 4 million huh?!?!

  • echogeo

    I have Frank Miller's debut & run in Daredevil. Also his Ronin, The Dark Night & Sin City graphic novels.
    Daredevil is beginning to creep up in value.

    • mrjimmyos

      I quite like the Daredevil comics, but as is the way with the early ones they leave nothing unsaid XD

    • Really?

      Come up stairs. Mom says lunch is ready!

      • Yeah, really!

        Frank Miller directed 300, right? Bad Ass movie!
        Your Mom's lunch is in her mouth.
