Tales of Suspense 39, First Iron Man

Recently, there has been some confusion about the first appearance of Iron Man. It is understandable. He appeared in several different comics before Tony Stark appeared in Iron Man #1.
The first appearance of Iron Man, in a grey suit, was in Tales of Suspense 39. This classic issue was written by Stan Lee. In addition, [...]

Red Hot Avengers 4, First Captain America

It’s hard to believe that almost a year ago, we posted about the growing popularity of Avengers #4, the first appearance in the Silver Age of Captain America. See this post.
Well, a recent check of the ComicSeeker database shows that Avengers 4 has become even more popular. Considering the Marvel comics movie line-up, it is [...]

Long Beach Comic Con

The first ever Long Beach Comic Con was held a couple of weeks ago in Southern California. For a first time affair, the convention was fun and well attended. Saturday was packed with collectors and families.

For a long time now, old and rare comic books have not been cheap. When you take a look at the blue chips of the comic book market, they can be downright pricey. Rob, over at It’s All Just Comics, maintains a list of comic books that are valued at $100,000 or more. I thought [...]

First, the previous discussion was primarily aimed at Golden Age and Platinum Age comic books. Those are generally the comics that have value in lower grade, thereby potentially justifying the restoration [...]

What is a High Grade Comic Book

The Rise of Avengers #4 and Captain America

I’ve been noticing an increase in searches for Avengers #4. This is the return of Captain America in the Silver Age. During the early rise of Marvel Comics in the 1960’s, they focused on new characters such as Spider Man, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men.
So, Cap, was a late bloomer for the Marvel Silver [...]

Featured Comic Book Dealer: ComicLink

Second to Ebay, ComicLink is one of the largest dealers of comic books and comic art on the Internet. Although, to be fair, like Ebay, they aren’t a traditional comic book dealer but more of a consignment house.

AmaIng Fantasy #15, first Spider-Man

Amazing Fantasy #15, the first appearance of Peter Parker as Spider-Man is the hottest back issue in comics right now.
