Consumers should be aware that the market in comic books is at times volatile and involves a due measure of risk. Only those who are aware of, and inclined to bear, the financial risk involved with buying and selling comic books should participate in this market. The opinions expressed in this web page are solely statements of judgment.

CGC authorized member dealers are independent contractors and individually accountable for the market that they make in CGC certified comic books. CGC authorized member dealers are also individually accountable for any other contractual undertaking they assume with their clients.

IMPORTANT CONSUMER NOTIFICATION: It is important for consumers to understand that grading and certification by Certified Guaranty Company, LLC does not guarantee protection from common risks associated with a market which is potentially volatile. The degree to which comics graded and certified by CGC are liquid will vary according to market conditions at a given time for the individual comic book involved. For some collectible comic books there may, at times, be no active market.

Notices regarding CGC’s Census Report

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.
