Autographed Comic Books

Amazing Spider-Man #583Getting an autograph from someone you admire is a very cool thing. There is nothing like seeing a person whose work you love and having them sign the very thing that gives you joy. With big name movie celebrities, you can fetch a fancy sum from an autographed picture. In the comic book world, things can be a bit different. While the artists and writers are superstars to us, they might not be that famous outside the comic book world. There are certain exceptions to this rule with the likes of Stan Lee and Neil Gaiman, but others might not as much. Does an autograph increase the value of a comic book or does it decrease it? I explore this very topic and find some interesting answers.

In a related note, I recently got an email about just this topic, but the person who signed the comic was none other than our President, Barack Obama. The comic in question was five copies of Amazing Spider-Man #583 and was verified by the Prime Minister of Australia. Is this comic going to be worth more than gold? Read the answer to find out.
