  • How do I determine the estimated value of my comic book?

  • Do you press foil covers?
    Yes, we do press foil covers. Older books such as the 1993 Venom Lethal Protector book or Amazing Spider-Man 365 are foil books that are pressed often. We also press all modern foil books. However, it should be noted that due to the cardstock cover that is often utilized on foil books, they do not manipulate as well as a most non-foil comic book, but there will be improvement.
