So how are comic book sales and values holding up in this economy? If you listen to Chuck Rozanski of Mile High Comics it is a mixed bag. In the latest Comics Buyer’s Guide he tells a tale of lower sales (off 20% at the Orlando Megacon by informal survey), yet many collectors are hoarding their books, making it difficult to find new stock.
Eventually something has to give in – either prices or selling by the hoarders.
I have my own thoughts on the matter (to be discussed in an upcoming article), but if you want to read Chuck’s opinions, you can read them at Tales from the Database.
