Multimedia Project: The Art of Comic Book Collecting

Although not all of us may have pick one up, we are all familiar with the concept of comic book collecting. Yet, despite the common knowledge of comics very few understand the art and the economical side to collecting comics.

Despite being short 14-26 page editions of the Sunday Funnies, comics have a very unique maturation in terms of value. Unlike, cars, homes, or even your fancy new PS4 comics rarely ever depreciate immediately after you purchase them. Instead, they continue to slowly increase in value – sometimes at an exponential rate depending on the character and the cultural shock provided from the comic itself.
