Comics have a really old history from the times when they were made as prints depicting social issues or satire. The first actual comic book was a book of reprinted comic strops from the newspapers. Today, the industry has grown by leaps and bounds and comic books have a very large niche market.

To find out the proper value of a book, its condition must be assessed in one of the two ways. One way is to use a numerical scale from 10.0 to 0.5. In this 10.0 means the best condition. This is used by the CGC, but professional certification from the CGC can be very expensive, though it will definitely increase the value of the books. Another way to assess the condition is to use a graded method with Mint and Poor conditions at the extremes with other grades in between.
If this is the kind of investment you are looking for, the market needs to be studied and properly followed, just like you would follow the stock market to invest in shares. The value of different vintage comics increase and decrease in value with time. Some of the places where comic books can be sold and bought are Ebay, comic conventions and a few comic books websites.
The one main problem with investing in comic books is the storage. It is a physical form of investment and hence, needs proper handling. A clean and dry room is essential for storage and the comics should be individually kept in plastic bags. There are bags and boxes designed for holding comics, so these must be obtained as well. Also it might be a good idea not to lend the comics to the neighbour’s child!
