I’m new to comics but had picked up this Image Firsts: Walking Dead #1 a few years ago. 

Just trying to get a feel for what it may be worth. 

Didn’t know if the Image firsts made it not worth as much. 

 

Any help appreciated!

^$350!?!!?

Honestly, I think that is way off base. CGC 9.8's unsigned have sold for as low as $11 and as high as $40. The signature could add a bit of value for those who like stuff signed by Kirkman. I wouldn't consider his autograph that rare so for me, your book has a value in the $50-75 range at best.

'tree fiddy' is a common sarcastic answer given that doesn't really mean anything one way or another.  Without taking the effort to look anything up myself, I would say your answer is reasonable.

But generally, if one was looking for values, they could look up 'sold' values on ebay or GPA (a paid service which tracks CGC sale prices)

usually reprints don't hold the same value as the original. So tree fidy lol but you should look up completed Ebay sales as mentioned by @revat but I would guesstimate 200$ because of the signature.

that's actually a pretty sweet book- one of the first reprints with the black bar on the bottom- during the Walking Dead heyday that would have fetched around $200 easy with the sig-  still a solid book

yeah modern books really do go up and down in value easily and quickly. I feel like buying modern books for financial value is like taking a ride on a roller coaster.

A more accurate comparison would be:

Like jumping off the roof of a hotel.
