SILVER AGE COMIC BOOKS - RECENTLY PURCHASED
Some of the Silver Age Comics we are looking to buy
In 1954, just prior to the birth of the Silver Age of comic books, the Comics Code Authority was introduced to regulate content since authorities believed that juvenile crime was on the rise due to romance, horror, and crime based comic books. Publishers in return then started to again create superhero comic books, which brings to light the very first comic book of the Silver Age, DC’s Showcase #4 featuring The New Flash. Other DC titles that followed included the Justice League of America and Wonder Woman. In response, Marvel created The Fantastic Four, The Avengers, Thor, The X-Men, Iron Man, and The Amazing Spider-Man. These titles, along with many other favorites, then carried throughout the Bronze, Copper, and Modern Age. This age is truly responsible for the birth and origins of today’s most notable heroes and villians.
Legendary artists and writers who contributed to the success of the Silver Age include Stan Lee, Gardner Fox, John Broome, Robert Kanigher, Curt Swan, Jack Kirby, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, Mike Sekowsky, Gene Colan, and Carmine Infantino among others. We are also looking to purchase comic books that have been signed by these living legends. We have an in house authenticator who will carefully examine your autographed comics, if they haven’t been looked at by PSA/DNA, CGC, or JSA, before an offer is made.
We are avidly searching out and buying all titles from this time period regardless of condition. These comics have stood the test of time and will always hold a special place in the hearts of collectors. Please reach out to us even if books are not complete or covers are missing. Single loose pages of key books, especially where first appearances occur, can command upwards of 3 to 4 figures. Our in house professional grader will grade each book, if books have not been graded by CGC, to assure top dollar is paid based on the current market.
