We only appraise comic character collectibles. Comic books, original comic book art, original newspaper art, animation art, movie posters, toys and select illustration art. Individual Comic book appraisals are limited to books published prior to 1975. Collections after this date need to be evaluated and require additional information. Please check the inside of the front cover to determine the date. We will not appraise individual items with a retail value of under $25. We will offer an evaluation for most individual items and collections at no charge and freely offer advice when we can. Appraisal fees for large collections or estate, tax or insurance purposes are at a hourly rate.

A common problem exists for books dated after 1975 to the present.  For further information regarding the value of modern comic books visit:

Please Note:
Unless a formal appraisal is requested and contracted for, we provide
a Professional Opinion of Value (POV), not a formal appraisal.  As such the work product of the appraiser is not an appraisal but something distinct and less than a formal appraisal due to the extraordinary limiting conditions under which such professional services are here offered. The client should be informed further that the POV is a work product that is not necessarily based on first-hand inspection, that it is not fully researched, that it is not intended for anything other than informational use, and specifically not intended for important tax or financial purposes. It is only an opinion professionally rendered, but not duly and fully researched.  As opposed to a formal appraisal, it does not take into account specific market issues, trends, or any other important criteria that may affect value.
