Ya, Clock and Dagger would be an Elgin Timepiece and a Sharade Switch blade fighting crime -- That might be awkward!!
Comment by Chicago Retro on July 2, 2010 at 10:16pm
clock & Dagger is fairly common still in Quarter bins at comic book stores as it hasn't been popular for some time, though book value on them is usualy $2-$3 you can never get that for them -- Id the Elfquest is first prints from Fantigraphics (Not Marvel or the subsequint Fantagraphics reprints) and there in good condition they can be $5 - $15 an issue your best bet for all things comic book relaited is to buy a current copy of the Overstreet comic book Price Guide ether online or at any Barnes and Noble It list all comic books (except some vary obscure 70's underground comics) and current year values -- Never seen the dune giants so I can't tell you about them -- Good Luck

I have a lot of the Elfquest comics that came out in the late 70's-early 80's; I have 3 Giant Size Dune comics; I have a bunch of Amethyst comics (of various ages); I have some Cloak & Dagger comics; and the rest I can't remember for sure. I think I wrote down the comic title, date purchased, price on comic cover and price I paid for them, as I bought them. If I remember correctly from the last time I looked at them and that list, I believe it was somewhere between $2,000 and $3,000 at that time.

and don't worry about not being from chicago, many of our members arn't and we are still nice too them!!!?!??!?!!!
Comment by Chicago Retro on July 2, 2010 at 8:58pm
also condition is a huge factor us comic book collectors are totally annal retentive about even the smallest dings!!
Comment by Chicago Retro on July 2, 2010 at 8:57pm
oh, yea if it was worth $2000 in the 80's alot more now is probably an understatment - though it depends on the book and the importance of it - for instance stupid me, I sold a near mint copy of Giant size x-men #1 (first appearance of the new x-men) in 1990 when the book was just 12yrs. old for what I thought was a wopping sum of money at the time $50!!!! Now in 2010 that same book is worth nearly $1600 in the same condition!!!!!!

Thanks for inviting me to join the group. I had doubts about joining since I am not in the Chicago or Northwest Indiana area, although I did grow up in Fort Wayne, In. I don't know when I will get a chance to get back to that area, but I am hoping to someday.

How are comic books doing for value? Are they on the increase or decrease? If I had a collection worth around $2,000 back in the 80's would it be worth a lot more now? I bought a lot of the comics new as they came out, but I also have a lot of older comics. I can't tell you what I have right now or anything, as they are in storage in a house in Iowa and I am currently in New Mexico.
