Appraisals

American comics from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s (especially rare or vintage books and those in mint or near mint condition) can carry a great deal of value. Dealers around the world buy, sell, and auction these collectibles all the time, and you'll be doing yourself a great favor by getting your old, hard to find back issues appraised.
