What kind of comic books are worth money?

And some of these comics are so beloved and so expensive that they can cost hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars at auction. Of course, they include Superman and Batman comics, along with other Marvel and DC classics, as well as jewelry from other publishers. All-Star Comics 3 hasn't risen in price like many others on the list, but it's always been a valuable book, as it features the first appearance of the first superhero team known as the JSA. While Ultra-Humanite isn't exactly a popular or even well-known villain, he's the world's first comic book supervillain.

The market is a fickle beast, and sometimes comics skyrocket in value for a while and then crumble. Wonder Woman received its first line of comics in the summer of 1942, shortly after the United States entered World War II. Despite that, it is still a very valuable book at high ratings that can rival even some of the main comics of the Golden Age. This 1962 comic by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee features another first appearance, but this time it's Spider-Man.

The ideal is to look for comics that are from the 70s or earlier, since they are more likely to be valuable. Superman 1 (out of 193) is currently ranked number 1 in the best-selling comic of all time with a recent private sale (confirmed by CGC). The comic book has skyrocketed in value, possibly due to the revival of Wonder Woman in film and popular culture. In 1937, DC publisher Harry Donenfeld was worried that a competing publisher would steal the title of Action Comics, so he mocked this comic and sent it to the United States.

It's still possible that there are even more expensive comics waiting to be discovered. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1961, this comic shows the first Fantastic Four adventure. Still, having a comic with a low number is another good indicator that it's worth something. This list reduces hassle and provides you with the 50 most valuable comics ever printed.

The price is misleading because the 5.0 (listed below) that sold for 108,000 had slightly brittle pages, which is always a big negative for any comic.
