Portage's convention

The Northwest Indiana Times writes about the comic book convention taking place this week in Portage. And, someone even makes the following observation worth considering about the Spidey/Obama issue:
He also said comics like the new Barack Obama/Spiderman may be worth a lot now, but could go down in value.

"You shouldn't buy comic books just to invest in them," Morton said.
Of course not. The entertainment value should come first and foremost. And that Spidey/Obama short story in issue #583 is unlikely to last long in value. Especially if it's kept bagged and boarded. I won't be surprised if some copies start turning up on Ebay in just a few months.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
