An all new featured article on InvestComics…..

Throughout the years InvestComics has explained that there is something within the speculative/collectors market that is just as important as the first appearance of a character. Sometimes an overlooked nugget, but most are privy to it. A characters second appearance is not only a fun get, but sometimes very affordable. Sometimes not, therein is the chance to make your decision as an investor to jump in or not. We cannot make that decision for you, nor would we. We will simply guide you and the rest is up to you.

We are proud to present a new regular feature on InvestComics called Second Appearances. Here you will see a list of comics featuring some A list characters and not so A list characters. Either way, the speculator will have an inside track on a characters second appearance. What if a character blows up and the first appearance is out of reach financially? Very simple actually, buy the second appearance. Some of the naysayers may say, what and why the second appearance? Well, the fact that two of the premiere grading companies (CBCS and CGC) recognize and highlight second appearances is clue enough. It’s a factor within the hobby. It is important, so why not go with the flow and start getting some of those second appearances? As said earlier, some of them are surprisingly affordable too.
