Comic Value Trends for February 2013
Our trends going into February are a mixed bag. The Amazing Spider-Man #700 is still enjoying strong sales, but prices are holding steady, except for rare variants, such as #700/G, the Midtown Comics variant, now up to $40 and streeting at $125. Silver Surfer (Vol. 2) #1 jumped to $46 on listings, but not selling, as lower-priced copies remain on the market. The rarity of Adventure Time #1/E (wraparound cover) shot its value to $26 this month, and it’s streeting at almost double that value.
Non-Humans #1 dropped to $5.25 from $9.50 this month as the series draws to a tepid close. There may finally be enough copies of The Walking Dead (Image) to sate fans, as the third reprint of The Walking Dead #1 slid to $7.50 from $14.50 last month.

I've been out of comics for a few years. I have started to pick up some
titles again. Well, then some has turned into more and now a lot. I see there are
several subscription services online. I was wondering if anyone on here uses any
of those or if you pretty much stick to the local shops? Or subscriptions directly
from Marvel/DC? My biggest drive in going this direction would be saving some $$$.
do you think is the best comic subscription service?)
