Saw this article about Rick Whitelock
, a comic book investor/buisnessman who retired at the age of 40 by buying and selling comic books. The article is about how comics are still a solid investment in this time of stock prices rising and falling. Rick has been buying and selling comics for years, and knows the ins and outs of the business. If I'm not mistaken, this is the same Whitelock who is on the Overstreet
board of advisers. I think this goes to show you that there is a strong reason why Whitelock has done so well - he is passionate and knowledgeable about the comic book market. Jumping into investing in comic books is tantamount to buying stocks at random, which is to say not a good idea. Be sure to do your research and not buy comics on whims or just because it is "old." If you're not careful, you could lose a lot of money.
