“To the thousands of bidders, winners, and consignors that participated in our 37th Event Auction last week, I humbly thank you for your contributions,” said Vincent Zurzolo, COO of ComicConnect. “We’ve closed our most successful year ever and we couldn’t have done it without you. While 2018 was a big year for all of us, it was just a step toward the future I envision for the comic investment market.”
The comic book and original art markets continued to expand in 2018 with record prices reported across a variety of grades, ages, and genres. Zurzolo believes that television and movie appearances are still a big factor in driving buyers to key comics while market scarcity on more valuable keys is causing bidders to price plateaus previously unheard of. “We’re prepared for an ever bigger 2019 be a part of it!"
