Pricing News for October 2013
New variants continue to be a guaranteed value, as the 3D-Cover Detective Comics 23.2 shot from its $3.99 cover price to $30 before hitting the secondary market. Excitement about the character Thanos and his anticipated appearances in upcoming film properties seems to be abating, as Thanos: Infinity Abyss #2 dropped from $6.25 to $4.25, and #3 dropped from $2.25 to $1.75.
Early 90s comics continue to drop, with X-Factor #60 now going for $1.20 (formerly at $1.75). News that NBC was in development of Oni's Ghost Projekt almost sold out the series, with #5 currently selling for $5, up from $3.75. Should NBC follow through, we expect another bump in value.

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?)
