Comic Books I Want

The key to collecting comic books is to determine what comic books are wanted for your collection.

Start by making a list of your favorite super heroes, whether they be Green Lantern, X-Men, Batman, Green Hornet or Fantastic Four.

Next, identify the titles those comic book characters are in. For example, Batman's main titles are Detective Comics and Batman. You might also want to collect affiliated titles, like Catwoman or Nighthawk. Robin and Teen Titans also fit into that category.

Then determine your budget for collecting the comic books you want. Most people start at the end of the comic book series they like, and work their way back to issue 1. If you can afford it, but the 1st issues from the get go, because they are only going to get more expensive as time goes on (if they are Golden Age, Silver Age or Bronze Age comic books!)
