WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Metropolis comics is an iconic supplier in the world of comic collecting, consistently housing scarce issues and runs of books that speak to both the novice and the most seasoned of veteran collectors. They offer one of the most informative websites, and an unchallenged history of grading expertise. They are really a leader in this hobby for all collectors, fans, and investors."

I just got back from Wonder Con. I went to walk the show and do some
buying. While the show was very slow for big-ticket items according to
many dealers I spoke with, I was able to make several major purchases. I
bought a large high grade CGC graded collection filled with many
golden age keys and runs. Many of these books will be listed next month, as
I have not been able to process the books before this update. I also
bought an original owner horror/western/crime collection- once again
these books will be listed next month.
As for the Overstreet Price Guide…hmmm. While I respect Bob
Overstreet tremendously I believe that many prices rose too high. I hope
there are no long-term repercussions and I hope he won't have to bring
prices back down like he did in 1997. Please do not get me wrong I do not
think every increase was a mistake I just think it is better to move up in a
slow and cautious manner rather than make huge incremental increases.
On the upside anybody who has a nice collection just increased his or her
net worth. On the downside anybody starting to put together a new
collection is going to have to pony up a lot of bread.
Regardless, I believe that things will work out in the long run and the market
will find it's proper price level as it usually does. I would like to
know what many of you think so please email me and let me know.
