THE TOP THIRTY SUPERHERO COMIC BOOKS SOLD ONLINE (ASSOCIATED WITH A SPECIFIC CHARACTER)

Action Comics 1In April, 2021, it was reported in the press that a very rare Superman comic book sold for a record-breaking $3.25 million (that's £2.5 million in English currency). So, to find out what other superhero comics resell really, really well, my mates over at money.co.uk decided to discover which characters have the highest online resale price and the best online median resale price.

In order to do this, though, they first had to carry out the following six steps…
  • Step One) Compile a list of popular superheroes (46 in total) and search for each one on eBay with the additional word, 'comic' (e.g., 'Superman comic').
  • Step Two) Remove the characters from this list that produced insufficient search data (Asterix, The Atom, Elektra, The Rocketeer, The Shadow, Zatara, etc, etc, etc).
  • Step Three) Filter the remaining selection by determining their highest selling and highest sold comic books.
  • Step Four) Harvest these results, and for each character, analyze the cost of their comics displayed on their first page on eBay (2,000 superhero comics in total).
  • Step Five) Decipher the current exchange rate (which at the time -- August 1st, 2021 -- was 1 USD = 1.38 GBP and 1 GBP = 0.72 USD) to ascertain the most accurate numbers for the final total.
  • Step Six) And finally, calculate and rank the median price for each superhero's listed comic book.
So, now you know how things have been worked out, you can finally sit back, relax, and check out…

So, what have we learned from all of this? Well, I'd say...
  • Comics featuring Spider-Man have the highest median resale price.
  • Superman currently has the most expensive comic book listed on eBay... £2,521,033.
  • Both DC and Marvel appear to dominate online sales.
  • Even though he's not at the top of either list, comics starring Batman seem to be a pretty good investment.
  • I can create a great infographic.
