Comic Book Collecting Tips
If you are thinking of starting a comic book collection, there are a few things you should know first. The following important tips will help you get your collection growing in no time at all:

Tip #1: Invest in older books.
When you are first starting out your collection, a good strategy is to begin by purchasing older, out of print comics. Generally speaking, older comic books are hard to find and may feature obsolete or rare villains and heroes. You also want to pay attention to the condition of the book, however. An old book in poor condition may not be worth much of anything. To determine the date, look for a publication date on the bottom first page or use the price on the front as a point of reference.

Tip #2: Make frequent visits to your local comic book stores.
Inventory frequently changes at your local comic book store. Keep in mind, however, that most modern comic storefronts sell current publications and not necessarily back issues. A comic book store can also be a great place to talk with other collectors and learn about the genre.

Tip #3: Make it a social experience.
Going to your local store is a start, but don't stop there. Comic book conventions are another great resource for not only finding older comic strips, but for networking with other collectors. The Internet is another great resource.

Tip #4: Protect your comic books.
And perhaps most importantly, protect your investment. Store your comics in bags with boards that will protect against bends, tears, or other forms of damage.
