Nostomania's 100 Most Valuable Comic Books

With each pricing update we compute and show here the 100 most valuable comic books. We chose NM 9.4 as a "baseline" grade for comparison. Clearly, some of these items may not, and probably do not exist in that grade. While we'd all like to hold out hope there is a NM 9.4 Detective Comics 27 out there, the odds are very slim.
