Comic book and comic strip art has always been popular. This art resonates with readers and collectors all over the world, young and old. Interest in comics as both a creative outlet and an investment is at an all time high.
Prices for this type of art have increased steadily over the last 50 years. Forbes Magazine has done articles on the wisdom of investing in this asset class. Auction prices are achieving new highs every year. Some comic art has sold for over one million dollars.
