If All Comics Were Equal...

There isn't an easy way to ask this, but I'll try.

Pretend you have unlimited financial resources. You're Bill Gates, or Jeff Bezos. If you could only own 1 comic, what would it be?

Is it Action Comics #1, even though the monetary value doesn't really mean anything?

Mine would probably be Brave and the Bold #28, or the 1st Cover with all 7 OG Justice League members (not sure which issue that is).

Action Comics 1 I think. I am and always will be a Superman fan regardless of how bad they make him look in modern movies.

No I just love the hypo needle cover. Awesome greens. I feel like it’s one of the only golden Bats that has a PCH theme.

Is this Pre-Code Horror? I had to Google the term...

I had one of those that I sold to Matt Nelson in 2000.  My biggest sales regret because the replacement cost is about 25 times what I sold it for.

high grade Blue Bolt 105... I'd probably eventually buy an Action 1 and a 'tec 27, but I'd love to go find the owner of the Blue Bolt #105 in 9.8. And just put a pile of money in front of him, wait for him to say no. Then double the pile of money, see him squirm maybe say no again, and then double the pile of money again. It'd be real interesting to see where his "I cant say no to THIS MUCH money!" line was.

Famous funnies #1 

highest grade on census is 8.5, I guess that would suffice.

The fun would be in seeing what peoples numbers were... like what number would get "the dentist" to cash out? What number would have gotten @G.A.tor to sell me his entire Centaur run instead of having it on ComicConnect this month.

That’s a tough one to loose. :frown: Doubtful that I will own a complete copy one day but even a coverless copy with that splash would be cool.

On a kinda related note, does anyone happen to know the 1st cover which featured all 7 Justice League characters? Or know someone who may?
Is it Justice League of America #5?

"I have a dream today....I have a dream that my comic books will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the drawings on their covers but by the content of their storylines!

And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every newsstand and every comic shop, from every convention and every film premiere, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's comics, Marvel and DC, Image and Dark Horse, IDW and Dynamite, will be able to marry wraps and flutter to the words of the old EC spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

(with, of course, respect to Mr. King, Jr. :applause: )

All of this, and you didn't even tell us what book it would be!?
