The Future of the Comic Book Market7976

I feel like the market has normalized over the last few weeks/months - the price gap between grades seems to have shrunk on many key books. I think it has something to do with the flood of Stan Lee books saturating the market and tieing up capital.

@CaptainCanuck Awesome collection(yours?), but if value is your goal wouldn't you want to move some of those? But then again, the books will increase in value each year & there is no reason to believe Disney/WB will sour their comic marketing...

There will always be raw books circulating, removed from slab or original. Scarcity will impact the oldest books first and most.

Not my collection, just a photo I stumbled upon that inspired the thread.

I think high-grade key books will get steadily harder to find in the wild, but I can't imagine slabs will ever make a huge dent in the volume of raw books out there.

I don't slab many comics, mostly those valuable ones in fantastic condition or key books in such bad condition you want to get them slabbed and graded before they fall apart.

Most of the slabs I have I picked up in low-bidding auctions.

I will still be collecting and Reading comic books no matter what the market does. Buy and read what you like and there will never be a big let down.

That's me. I cannot wait for my semester to end where I teach so I can get caught up with 3 months of my pull list. The stack is about 8 inches tall now and climbing. Lol
