There are some comics from the 1980s that have value. In fact, because some comics matter and because of recent nostalgia, there are a small number of books from the 80s that are worth thousands and are solid investments (although most 80s comics have little or no value). In our opinion, the 80s prevailed. Parachute pants, neon sunglasses and Spider-Man in an all-black suit.
Does it get better? Here's our list of the 10 most valuable comics from the 1980s (excluding reprints) for the reasons you'll see with No. The “silent” song blew our minds when it hit the stands and consolidated fan-favorite snake eyes in our hearts. It doesn't hurt, this edition also includes the first appearance of the superninja Storm Shadow. Yes, the first eponymous issue of The Crow currently has more value than its first appearance.
But to be fair, that's where the story we all know and love began. This is one that only found favor (surprisingly) in recent years, the first appearance of Boba Fett and Yoda, along with Bossk's first cameos, IG-88, Zuckuss and the main protagonist, Emperor Palpatine. With that training, it probably still has room to grow. Maybe redheads have more fun after all? Cheryl Blossom's first appearance in an Archie series that has the names Betty and Veronica in the title is brave enough to make you think so.
British real estate mogul Godfrey Bradman commissioned a Superman comic for his son Daniel's Bar Mitzvah, with family members as main characters. DC Comics' special projects department reportedly produced fewer than 250 copies of this work, making it one of the rarest Superman stories in existence. The first appearance of Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphel, Donatello, Shredder and Splinter is making a lot of money these days and is currently the most valuable comic of the 1980s. In fact, the reprints of this issue (as well as the rest of the series) could fill this entire list of the top 10, but how fun is that?

Comic book collectors generally care more about old comics, most of which were published between the 1930s and the mid-1970s. The easiest way to determine if your comics can be considered “vintage” is to check the cover price. The most valuable ones will have 10c, 12c, 15c, 20c or 25c on the cover, but of course there are always exceptions to the rule. The four categories to which comics belong are Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age and Copper Age to the Modern Age, with the Golden Age, of course, the oldest and potentially the most valuable (from the 1930s to the mid-1950s) and from copper to the modern age being the most recent (from the 1930s to the mid-1950s) and from copper to the modern age being the most recent (from the decade from 1980 to the present).

Trial decisions are excellent, but not necessarily exhaustive. Meanwhile, high sales prices could easily reflect, for example, a copy of the CGC 10 Gem Mint Signature series signed by Stan Lee, which reflect that the underlying comic is of great importance.

In part, it's because adults of that time now want to have the first versions of their favorite characters from comics and pop culture (call it nostalgia).
