Reading comic books is one of the most treasured parts of any childhood. We used to spend hours pouring through the illustrated images, caught up in the narratives and fantasies. For some, collecting comic books is a way to preserve the idyllic times of childhood and to treasure an item of high sentimental value. For others, collecting comic books is an investment. Procured at a low price, there is a potential to sell popular comics at a gastronomically higher price later on.
Keen to get started in this hobby? Read on to find out the top favourite comic books that are ideal for collection!
1. The Amazing Spider Man #39 (1966)
First released in 1966, ‘The Amazing Spider Man’ series has spawned multiple highly popular live-action films. Penned by giant Stan Lee and illustrated by the talented John Romita, this series should definitely be on the cards for serious comics collectors. In particular, this issue marks the first appearance of the Green Goblin, one of the main antagonists of the series, making it an incredibly valuable comic to secure and collect.
2. Hawkeye #1 (2017)
Hawkeye is one of the more underexplored characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nonetheless, with the release of the Disney+ television series starring this titular character, it is growing in popularity. This series in particular stars Kate Bishop, the Hawkeye of the Young Avengers. Given that many critics point towards a Young Avengers movie or show in the future, now is a good time to invest in some Hawkeye series that feature Kate.
3. Archie’s Girls, Betty & Veronica #1 (1950)
Archie’s Comics has always been a favourite across time. With Netflix’s live action adaptation of the series, interest in Archie’s Comics has only grown. This issue, Archie’s Girls, Betty & Veronica #1, spotlights the two main female characters of the series. Given that these same characters have received much adoration from fans in the Netflix live action adaptation, it might make sense to invest in this issue to ride on the increasing interest from avid fans.
