With all the upcoming movies and other media comic-related upcoming releases, comics can be hot. One comic may be in a store's dollar bin with no interest one day, then the next day it seems everyone wants it. Or the opposite happens. I try to keep up with what is in demand in the comic book back issue market. It helps me to know when someone brings in a comic or comic collection if what they have is valuable at the time or not. It is part of the business that my store, Rodman Comics does. This is part of my research. If I knew for sure what comics would climb in value, I would be buying them up now instead of typing this up. I figure that perhaps some of these comics may be in your collection.
The Doctor Strange movie and the upcoming Thor movie have provided a boon for various characters' first appearances that make the leap from the comic pages to the big screen.
These prices are for raw, ungraded comics that are in near-mint condition. Prices may rise or fall quickly. As I have stated before one person's junk is another person's treasure. Something is only worth what another person is willing to pay for it.
