The prices are increasing on most of my old stuff. Even key stuff I bought for $10-$20 in the early 2000's are in the $75 range now.


Its odd right? We were talking about investing when the industry was down and nearly dead and now everything I own is selling for 100% more than what I paid for it. And that's the garbage stuff. I feel like its time for another massive sell off and I'll just keep my keys.

There's definitely some stuuf that I thought was garbage and now people are looking for it. I have a Wynonna Earp #1 somewhere. I remember buying it and thinking it was garbage. Now I'm seeing that a Punisher #4 is the first "Microchip". I can't tell you what that means, but I think I had multiple. I picked up long boxes of that type stuff for free when a store shut down.

Huh. I hadn't ever considered the first Microchip.

The only Punisher's I read growing up were Punisher War Journal 1-25 or so, but I loved the character back then & Microchip was still his armorer/sidekick -- not yet a villain.

Operating out of a warehouse in north Jersey, going into NYC to take down crack houses, tussle with Daredevil & Spidey, etc.

That's late '80s/early '90s Punisher to me.

I can't take credit for picking Punisher #4. I have no idea who he is. I saw people posting the cover scan and I remember that being in my box of excess inventory. It was in a box of things I didn't want and planned to flush out cheap.

Microchip was awesome. He's like The Punisher's Q.

He's a fat guy with glasses who serves as his armorer, computer programmer, and reconnaisance eyes while he's out on missions.

My favorite story featuring him was in the Jim Lee story in Punisher War Journal 17-19, and Microchip travels to Hawaii to try to find Frank -- one of his first undercover exploits in the field.

I was thinking he was a villain. Hmmm!

I guess I need to see if I have anymore at some point.

In the past 3 months I have moved close to $3k worth of comics. This market is unreal - and from what I hear, coming to an end with the pandemic.

Nice number, whetteon!

"Unreal" is an apt word for the market. I would have been unable to get $3k (in CAD) for my entire collection in 2015. Today, on eBay, my high-grade copy of Edge Of Spider-Verse #2 would sell for at least $1.5k. What a world!
