Why your Bronze Age comics collection ain’t worth squat
Marvel and DC are dead to me today. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. Can I be wrong. While some characters created this way, would develop cult followin!
Another thing you can do: donate your comics to a not-for-profit. And if they are not keys, there is no point in getting many comics slabbed. Besides their continuing popularity.

This was the time when many now-classic comic stories appeared - epic story arcs that covered multiple issues, a radical departure from the self-contained stories of the Silver and Golden Ages. Here are the variables for any collectible: Supply!
But nothing interesting like Elektra: Assassin or Slash Maraud? Classic Bronze Age. Even a flea market might turn a better profit than selling it to a comic shop middle man! Comics received a temporary financial boost when a speculation frenzy hit in the s.
