Hi, I recently acquired a complete collection of nm/m watchmen comics (first print) and was wondering how much they are worth.

i was asking because i think the prices on the guide might not be up to date. I noticed on ebay that some issues were selling for 100+ and some complete collections for as high as 1000-3000 with some issues as high as 500-1000 a piece.

Yeah, the comic is getting more valuable because of movie hype. I bet the issues you're seeing are CGC 9.8s right? That's triple-super high grade, and people won't pay as much if they're not as highly graded.

If you really have pristine copies, send them off to CGC, get them graded, and sell 'em quick!

Assuming they they are graded in the 9.6-9.8 Area how much will they likely sell for?

My other question would be do you think they will lose value after the movie is released? and what would be the cheapest way to have them graded? (How much would it likely cost)

It sounds like you have a better idea of what they're selling for right now than I do. Check ebay recent sales for some ideas. I figure at some point the price will have to go down, these comics just aren't very rare. it was a huge hit when it came out and there are thousands out there. It's only from the 80's lots of people have taken very good care of these comics since they were first published. I have one or two copies of each issue from when they came out, all pretty sweet looking. Probably not 9.8s, but if I have them so do a lot of other people.

If you want to sell them, go for it. It sounds like you've got these comics to make money, now's a good time for Watchmen.

As for getting them graded, there's only one way. Send them off to CGC. You could also send them to PGX, but CGC has a better rep and will likely bring more cash.

Prices are already dropping. I remember a sale of a lot, all CGC 9.8, for $12000

Now is impossible to get this price. But if you paid cover price and are really high grade (9.6 or more) it worth selling.
