When Starlet first moved in with us, he didn’t have much. But he did have a comic book collection that he was very proud of. He told us it was probably worth thousands of dollars, but a cursory glance showed me mostly 2005 and later common issues, so we just figured it was a thing of “I only own this one thing and so I am hyping it up.” Well, he just asked me to go through it with him, and this child has the ENTIRE 40 issue series of The New Teen Titans, most of them in near mint condition! Plus the annuals, the special drug awareness PSA issues, and the side stories! Dear lord, this child is rich!
We aren’t even halfway through and I just spotted Batgirl issue #1. I need a moment
That’s pretty cool. My dad had an original Superman #1 comic. His evil stepmom gave it away along with his set of 1930’s Lionel trains when he was away in the navy. I could retire on all the valuable stuff of his she threw out because she wanted extra room in the garage.
I just had a mild heart attack when a cursory search led me to believe one of then was worth $30k. But I made a typo in the search that gave me the wrong result. The one I was searching was still worth $150.
I owned Spiderman #1
My grandma tossed it.
I had a comic book collection in 1982 and it was sold for $50 but I had either shoplifted the comics or bought them with money I stole from grandma.
My all time favorite comic book was THE SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN which was meant for older kids because of gratuitous sex and violence. It was drawn in black and white and the size of a magazine.
I barely know you, and this is quite frustrating to me.
He has Wonder Woman #1. This boy is going to retire at age 16.
He could put himself through college with that if he so desired.
If he stays in state, the government will put him through college. But if he wants to go to Harvard or something, yeah, he’s set.
I have some expensive comics, variant covers and stuff
