I present a current thumbnail view of my Database
I present a thumbnail view of my Database! I hope folks can look and think about questions.
I have a extreme interest in determining the reason for the Differences in the Silver/Bronze Age Issue Distribution in DC vs Marvel.
Are DC comics on the average undervalued especially in the middle segments or are Marvel Comics under valued at the top segments? What has to happen in the market to equalize the distributions? Will there ever by an equalization?
I would have predicted they would have been the same. I think we can reject that hypothesis?
I believe understanding these questions will lead to increased investment opportunities!

Reasons to Sell a ComicConsider this a Positon Paper. I have set out extremes of 100% collectors vs 100% investors. I expect it's a normal distribution of people from the extremes inwards. This figure shows my journey.

Updated Investment Analysis of Amazing Spiderman # 130 TO 151 The first table presents the Bias Score (B Score) for all the issues. Bias scores show which issues are being bought by the Insiders (Pros) vs. the Outsiders (Fans Less Serious). The concept of my approach is to focus on the issues being bought BULLISHLY by the investors. I developed an analysis of data to quantify this Bias (B Score). I mark the issues with the highest Bias with Green followed by a Dark Green staining for issues with a lesser but definite Bias. Red are those issues to avoid. Starting now I am circling back to my early Blog Posts/Data from 2015.
I will add an Extra Figure following the Current Bias information. See the discussion of the exciting findings!

We mark the issues with the highest Bias with Lime Green followed by a Dark Green staining for issues with a lesser but definite Bias. Red are those issues to avoid.
Table 2 data deals with another data stream on comic-book issues. This run’s issues are looked at 3 grades 9.4, 8 and 6. The changes in bias between the different grades are calculated and the SLN numbers were born. The SLN numbers look into each “world” of the I vs. O bias data. This data has shown historically to be the most liberal and establishes the investment potential across the grades of 9.4, 8 and 6. Very quickly, the green s…
