ComicConnect recently recorded a new high sale price at grade for Batman #1 CGC 4.0 at $170,000. That book, which is Batman’s first titular title, is the second most valuable comic to feature the Dark Knight. Interest for that key has been growing significantly in the secondary market.  

“Whether in our fixed price marketplace or in our auctions, investment collectors the world over turn to Metropolis and ComicConnect to handle high profile sales,” Vincent Zurzolo, COO of Metropolis Collectibles and ComicConnect, said. “Investors are constantly setting new records and Golden Age keys are getting snapped up by hungry buyers.”

Superman #1 has spent decades at the top of want lists and ComicConnect sold two copies recently. “In our December auction, a Superman #1 CGC 3.0 hammered at $310,111 and in our marketplace a CBCS 1.5 went for $95,000,” Zurzolo added. “One of my favorite books, More Fun Comics #73, featuring the first appearance of both Aquaman and Green Arrow, sold in the marketplace for $100,000. Collectors shouldn’t hesitate to call or email me with their want lists. I have access to comics no one else does.”

Collectors are also going after the first 20 issues for big name titles. ComicConnect recently sold a copy of Batman #2 CGC 9.0 for 76,000, a 20% gain in value in just 3 months’ time.
