       7 Covers: comics I was promised would be worth buckets of money

This week's covers are courtesy of PANELista Craig Bogart. Craig writes:
"Seven comics I was promised would be worth buckets of money: I'm not sure why I was surprised this past MidOhio when I saw Flash #1 and Animal Man #1 for just a buck or two apiece. Those used to be pricey issues. I came in late to the Giffen/DeMatteis Justice League, so that first issue cost me about $15 when I bought it. I see it on ebay now for $2.00. Not much Marvel here, only because they had sunk so low by this point I had defected to DC."

(Have a favorite series of your own? Or an artist? Character? Submit your own set of 7 covers by sending me small files (i.e. 72 dpi for the web) to ferret at ferretpress dot com and include "7 covers" in the subject line. Also, let me know if you have a blog or website you'd like me to link to.)



Man, when I worked at Half Price Books we would get (I am not kidding) dozens and dozens and dozens of copies of that McFarlane Spider-man. Thankfully, most people knew by then that the issue was worth a nickel at most, but every now and then some poor rube would come in, sometimes with nothing to sell but one copy of that issue, and get the shock of his life when we offered a nickel. They would either get completely crestfallen or so furious that they would storm out while muttering "Should call this place Half Price Crooks." I'll never get tired of that Spider-man issue.

Every time I'm in Half Price Books I look for that Spider-Man issue. Seriously. It's kind of like a scavenger hunt, one which I usually win.

I think it's called a "core title" now. Every dollar bin in every Half Price Books location is required to have at least one.
