You don’t read comics planning on them being an investment. Somewhere down the line, you probably even gave up on the idea. And then, a few years pass, and maybe you’re holding a comic worth hundreds of dollars more than what you paid for. Well, it happens now and then and no, it’s not because Pres. Obama is on the cover or it’s a variant. Sometimes, it’s just because it really is something special, like the first issue of Image’s “The Walking Dead.” As of this writing, you can still catch an auction for this gem in mint condition at My Comic Shop. Yeah, sometimes it’s nice to take a moment and check out something truly worthy of the CGC protective casing.
