Collector Comics

Obviously we all love DC Comics and I’m sure a good majority of us collect too. Would love to hear from everyone on of their best DC Comics finds through the years. One of my most valuable is Batman Adventures #12, debut of Harley Quinn. Bought that back in the day for $3.00 before the Harley Quinn freakout.


Two of the most Valuable ones I have is new gods #1 and teen titans #44 first appearance of nightwing

Batman 166 as a kid this really struck me, today it’s still one of the ultimate Batman Escape stories (the Houdini side of Batman)
look up the cover on Google …Batman 166, amazing and I was able to find a copy it’s a little beat but that’s one of the many I like. two boxes of stuff that I’m really thrilled to have, another 18 boxes not so thrilled but yep

My best DC find occurred at an early 1980’s New York comic convention when I trade a copy of Avengers

My best DC comic find occurred at a New York comic con in the early 1980’s when I traded a copy of Avengers #100 (I had two) and fifty bucks for Justice League of America (vol 1). #1. Till this day it is the king of my collection.



I aspire to own every issue of the Alan Moore run of Saga of The Swamp Thing. The most valued in that collection is #25, first appearance Constantine.


I have Batman and the Outsiders #1. I think that’s my most valuable one without a signature. I’m not sure about my other comics and there values are though

Constantine makes his debut in issue #37, Applejack.

Action comics 252. First appearance of supergirl. Bought a beat up copy ungraded for $200. True it cost about $70 to get it graded by CGC but at 2.5 I could sell it for $1000 easy.

One of my local LCS’ had a huge selection of silver and bronze Justice Leagues, Worlds Finest, and the various Superman titles of the eras that I raided recently. No super great keys or anything. But still a lot of books in good to very good condition that I was able to pad my collection with.

Love hearing about all these, some of my others are:

Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #134 (First appearance of Darkseid)
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1 (First Print)
Shazam! #28 (First DC appearance of Black Adam)
Detective Comics #267 (First appearance of Bat-Mite)

Love these issues
