How to Complete a Comic Book
Maybe you're collecting all issues in a specific title because it's coolest book you've ever read. Or maybe you just want to make your collection more valuable. Either way, you have same steps to follow.
Steps: 1. Read "Overstreet Price Guide" and "Wizard Magazine" monthly.
2. Find title you're interested in and do a rough calculation as to what it will cost.
3. Shop at a local store, by catalog, online, or go to a comic book convention.
4. Preserve your comics by storing them in a safe place.
Tips: Back issues - comic books that are not currently on sales rack - are sold in conditions ranging from "new/mint" to "very poor." The condition determines price. Shop around. Different booths will undercut each other, and you can regularly buy overstock of regular issues for half-off cover price or more.
