Investment: Bronze/Copper Age DC Comics
- The Flash 324 Crosses The Line: This issue is a little hot right now, but it’s probably due to the popularity of the new TV show on the CW. I do consider this issue to be a key bronze age book, because in this issue The Flash finally breaks his no-kill code while trying to save fiancée’s life. If you can find this book in mid to high grade for around $30 then I recommend picking it up, but if not it might be a little temporarly over valued. However, I do see The Flash gaining popularity, so only time will tell.
- Swamp Thing 1: The Swamp Thing first appeared in House of Secrets #92, but this is his first stand alone issue, and is a must have for your collection. Expect to pay up to $80 for a Fine grade.
- Joker #1: The series only ran for nine issues, but the Joker is such an iconic character in the DC Universe, but on top of that the art in this book looks awesome: You can pick up a near mint copy for around $40-$50.
- The New Teen Titans #2: This is another must own key issue from the Copper Age, and features his first appearance. Expect to pay close to $200 for a CGC 9.2 (NM-)
- Green Arrow #1: I feel that this book is the most under valued book on this list, but I’m sure that the value will soon go up thanks to The Green Arrow TV show, and future movies. I remember I paid 50 cents for a near mint copy a few years ago, but today it runs for a few dollars to five dollars, but that;s still a good price for this book.
- Swamp Thing #37: If there’s one book you get from this book it should be this one. Swamp Thing 37 is the first full appearance of John Constantine, and is a great key issue to own. If you’re looking for the very first appearance of Constantine you’ll find a brief appearance in Swamp Thing 25, but issue 37 is the true first appearance, because issue 25 is just a 1st Cameo Appearance of Constantine.
