Showcase 8 contains the second Silver Age appearance of the Flash and has remained one of the most valuable comics of the age.
It’s not the first appearance, so should you pursue this book as an investment? It depends.
The comic is desirable for strict collectors and for completists. For strict investors my opinion is you should pursue other comics for your portfolio unless you find a great deal or arbitrage opportunity and if so it may be worth the quick flip. That strategy puts you a little further into the speculator camp but it may be worth the time and money if the conditions are right.
To give you some perspective on current price trends for collectors, investors and speculators (and perhaps find that great deal) keep an eye on the issues offered for sale below. Don’t forget to check GPAnalysis and completed auctions to track current values.
