Just be careful
THose of you jumping on ASM 700 and superior 1 and up, be WARY.
THis is NOT the 1st time a run has been canned,relaunched, died and the initial run picked back up....and that has happened with ASM Twice.
Projecting on new books is tricky and riding the market wave is dangerous.
Do not go heavy into ASM 700 or Superior #1
Be careful on new books, DO THE MATH !
View a LOT of different variables when making a choice. Learning to be able to observe market trends, artist demand,writer demand,etc are all crucial in getting in on a wave at the ground floor.
Doing this is no different than being a serious and intelligent sports-card collector.
I am sure a lot of you saw the harper wave. People who got in early made some cash,but those who got in midway will NEVER make their money back on jsut those cards. They have to find another Haprer fan and push them off in trade for other projected growth talents...comics take intelligence more than guessing.
Safe investments....are ABUNDANT in comics. I push silver-age since I see another market flush coming in the next year and change which will drive people into the silver/gold/bronze market,driving the prices up drasticly.
The last time this happened was 1998-2001. The Book values and sales from silver-books didn't just doubt,but quadrupled on most and 10-20times on a select few
If you are adamant on focusing on the newer stuff,do the foot work yourself. If you do not, you will end up where I see a lot of people at right now, thousands of books, several thousands invested and looking for ANY SPIKE to move books to recoup
Play smart and Be careful
