Welcome to Comics Insider.

\We use Moneyball tactics to discover undervalued, mispriced, and hidden gems in Fractional Investing.


We’re tossing some ideas around. Take this quick survey and let us know what you think (1 min).

Comic book performance 2021

Things have cooled off since the heady days of a couple of months ago, but market sentiment remains strong, particularly among the blue chip assets.

Last week’s performance

Fractional secondary markets

Comics were mostly flat to down last week with the notable exception of a copy of Fantastic Four #5 CGC 9.2, which traded up nearly 30% (still well below FMV).

On average, comics are undervalued by around 16% on fractional secondary markets, though there’s a very wide range.

All stats come from assets trading on the secondary markets at Otis, Collectable, and Rally

This Week

New IPOs

No new IPOs this week.

Secondary markets

There are two comic books trading this week on Rally: Batman #2, and The Flash #123. As if to illustrate the divide between blue chips and non-blue chips, Batman #2 has some room to run, whereas The Flash #123 is a bit overvalued.

There are also a number of comics trading daily on the fractional secondary markets, and they’re undervalued by an average of 11%. (market cap as of Monday morning, inferred value accurate as of Wednesday morning).

At Auction

Comiclink are auctioning off a number of key titles from the golden and silver age, including:

Amazing Fantasy (first Spiderman) #15 CGC 4.0 and CGC 3.5 – look for this key issue to top $50k and $40k, respectively, to bolster the trend of blue chips making moves upward. The CGC 4.0 copy is already at $52k.

Other issues to watch:
