The Future of Silver Age Comic Investing! More Comic Book Investment Advice!

There's no doubt that recent news about certain silver age key issue comics breaking sales records and going for six figures has caught the attention of the public and many investors. The question of "Are comic books good investments" have been asked many of times by new speculators in comic investing.
However, the truth is that those comic books that have sold for ridiculous prices are what's called "Pedigree Comics" in the comic book industry. That means that they are the highest graded books of a certain issue. Silver age comics are rare as opposed to bronze age comics or modern age comics. However, those at NM or a high near mint are extremely rare.
The truth is that these books are extremely hard to come by. A few lucky collectors during the 70s and, perhaps, 80s paid top dollar for these books at the time, stored them safely, and then later had them graded by CGC. They had the foresight to see a comic's potential value decades earlier.
But what about now?
It's true that the demand for silver age comic books are high right now. Certain silver age key issues are selling extremely strong in all grades. It's true that most right now are gunning for the high grade books. As life teaches us, everything that comes up must come down.
No, I"m not talking about the value of silver age comics dropping. I'm talking about the market's current demand for high grade silver age books flattening out. The normal, average collector, cannot afford $100,000 for a single comic book. That's the cost of two homes in certain parts of the country. Ridiculous!
What I foresee happening with comic investing, and many experts agree with me, is an increased interest and demand for lower grade silver era comics. Grades at VG and even mid grade comics will start to pick up dramatically, because the higher grades are way too expensive.
If you think about it, many collectors started looking towards silver age comics as comic investments when high grade golden age comics became too expensive. Now, even though silver key issues are still in demand, many average collectors and comic investors are buying lower grades of both silver and golden age books.
This trend will continue and increase in the coming years. Lower grade books as long term comic investments is a wise choice, as comic book movies are rapidly pushing demand for these silver age key issues.

A Powerful Secret in Comic Investing In Order To Make Wise Comic Book Investment Choices!

Last year the stock market roller coaster had a lot of investors wary about investing in stocks. In a single day, investors lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Quite a few IRA's were completely wiped out and many took nose dives. While all this happened, comic investing flourished. Demand for certain issues rose in value, and certain golden and silver age comic books set record prices in 2011.

A CGC 9.6 Amazing Fantasy #15 (1st Appearance of Spider-Man) sold for $1,100,000 in March 2011, while a Fantastic Four #1 CGC 9.4 sold for $300,000 in 2011, beating its previous sales record of $210,000 in 2010.

There's no doubt that long term comic investing can be quite profitable, and for those who are new to the idea, there's one simple secret that can help you when it comes to investing in comics.

What is it?

It's comic book movies. Yes, Hollywood has turned to the superhero genre for fresh content when it comes to movies. What's better is these movies are extremely successful.

Learning about which movies are rumored or even coming out for a certain superhero is critical in choosing comic books to invest in. Researching and keeping up to date on the development of a certain comic-related movie is vital, because the hype pushes the demand and the value of the comic a lot quicker than it normally would.

A movie about Superman will spark interest and demand in his books. Pretty simple, huh? Not really.

Not just any comic will do. Sure, Captain America: The First Avenger did spark more interest in Captain America comics, and they sold quite well during the hype of the movie. However, we are talking about investing in comics that will rise in monetary value. Just because it's a Captain America book doesn't mean it will rise in value.

In this case, the values of only certain comic book issues are increased during a movie's hype. Finding these key issues is just another important part of making wise comic book investment choices. You need to research what's going on with these movies, and not just grab any thing off the shelf just because that character will come out with a movie.

So know you know one simple secret to help guide you to smarter investment comic choices. Now, it's time to find out just which of these key issues you should be on the hunt for.
