Comic BooksComic book collecting is a hobby that treats comic books and related items as collectibles or artwork to be sought after and preserved. Though considerably more recent than the collecting of postage stamps, it has a major following around the world today and is partially responsible for the increased interest in comics after the temporary slump experienced during the 1980s.

Comics are collected for several possible reasons, including appreciation, nostalgia, financial profit, and completion of the collection.  While some people collect comic books for personal interest in the medium or characters, others prefer to collect for profit.

The comic book came to light in the pop culture arena in the 1930s due to the popularity of superhero characters Superman, Batman, and Captain Marvel. Since the 1960s, two publishers have dominated the American comic book industry: Marvel Comics, publisher of such comics as Spider-Man, X-Men, and Fantastic Four, and DC Comics, which publishes titles such as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Other large non-manga publishers include Image Comics, IDW, and Dark Horse Comics.
