Comic books (Comics)/Comic Book Collecting
What do most collectors look for in a comic book? Is the issue number important? Is an issue number 5 better than an issue number 25?
I thank you for your reply.
For older comics, an earlier issue number is typically more valuable than a later issue number. For more recent comics, not so much. The most sought after issues by collectors are usually first editions and key issues (first appearance of a hero, villain, or supporting character, death issue, etc.). Also important is the grade of the comic. If a collector decides to sell their collection later on, it's much easier to sell (and get a good price for) a high grade collection than a low grade one.
Hope this helped.
