Rod Lamberti of Rodman Comics writes weekly for Bleeding Cool. Find previous columns here.: As I continue to go through the comic collection I bought over a month ago I am still researching about back issues. I am learning a lot. While not all of of these issues are in the collection ( I wish that were the case) I am surprised how many comics have gone up in value. Many were just years ago in dollar bids.
A part of me still does not think as the 1990s as decades ago. Doing this research does help me. I had no idea Doomsday Clock #1 was doing so well. Though it appears adding HBO when going to sell helps boosts its sales.
We are now up to 25 hot comics!
