The utilization of this report as a tool for assessing the population and value of certified comic books in any character or grade is unreliable. The following characteristics inherent in the marketplace undermine the accuracy of this report:
Inexpensive comics, which are not generally submitted for certification, may appear scarce but are not
Comic certification services are predominantly utilized for higher-grade comics
Certified comic books are often removed from their holders without notifying the grading service; therefore, computer tallies utilized to provide population reports may be misleading
Rarity is only one factor that must be weighed in determining the market value of a comic book
CGC encourages all collectors to seek the counsel of qualified professionals familiar with the certified comics marketplace before making any purchase based on this report.
