WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"You can count on Metropolis for great selection and reliable grading."
- Greg B., Virginia
The Metropolis Survey

Dear Valued Collectors,


I am not sure where you live in the United States or around the World, but June in New York City was very, very wet. In fact I believe it was one of the wettest Junes in our known history. The comic book market by contrast has been anything but wet and soggy. Comics are hot, hot, hot!


Possibly the strongest part of the market is Silver and Bronze Age Marvels. I am selling high, mid and low grade Marvels at an alarmingly frenetic pace. From keys to commons I haven't seen anything like this upsurge in sales of Marvels in quite some time. Keep in mind I am not saying that Marvels were slow and are just picking up. What I am saying is Marvels were strong and are now stronger.


I have sold the following in the month of June: Amazing Fantasy #15 CGC 7.0 for $8,000.00, a good for $1200.00, Amazing Spider-Man #7 G/VG $121.00, #13 CGC 9.4 $5,750.00, #23 F/VF $210.00, #29 G/VG $27.50, #34 FN $60.00, #85 NM- $80.00, Avengers #1 G/VG $328.00, #50 F/VF $12.50, Captain America #100 G/VG $48.50, #100 FN $100.00, #105 VF/NM $43.00, The Cat #1 VF $17.25, Conan #20 VF/NM $33.00, Creatures on the Lose #17 VF/NM $14.00, Daredevil #1 VG+ $300.00, Fantastic Four #48 GD $73.00, #48 CGC 9.4 $1800.00, #66 NM- $145.00, Iron man #1 VG+ $73.00, Iron Fist #14 VG+ $25.00, Journey into Mystery #83 FN- $975.00, Marvel feature #11 FN $10.00, Outlaw Kid #2 VF $9.25, Strange Tales #146 VF $24.25, Sub-Mariner #1 FN $43.25, Tales to Astonish #50 FN $30.00, #92 VF/NM $60.00, Thor #126 VF $107.00, #169 NM $90.00, #202 VF+ $8.00, What If #1 VF/NM $17.00, X-Men #1 GD $550.00, #26 VF $88.00, #149 NM/MT $15.25 and X-Men Giant Size #1 F/VF $340.00.


I recently walked the floor of the Philadelphia Wizard World Convention. Though extremely well promoted and run this show was slow for most of the dealers I spoke to and I did not have a lot of luck finding material I needed for customers. This was very odd, as I had heard last years show was great. I was actually thinking about setting up at this show but am glad I did not after seeing many dealers shaking their heads in dismay.


At the end of the month I set up at the Madison Square Garden Sci-Fi & Fantasy Convention. This show was also very well promoted and run. This show differed from the Philly show in that there were a lot of buyers in the room. Sales for the show were up from last year. After last years show I realized I needed to have a greater number of less expensive books for the show. I started the show with about seven boxes of Silver and Bronze Age Marvels and finished with about five and half. That is excellent.


On a final note I would like to thank you all for your continued support and hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July. For those of you overseas enjoy a beautiful June!





Sincerely,


Vincent Zurzolo
