If you want Great Art, and Great Value Potential… buy a Comic Book!

As a film maker, I read them for creative ideas on delivering content. The angles, colors and movement of the story forward are great incentives for making a fast paced visually interesting film.
Lately, the major studios like Marvel and DC have been sharing the wealth with smaller Indies. Black Mask and Image are two of the better ones. Superman was first seen in 1938 in volume 1 of Action Comics, shown to the right, and then again in 1939 in Superman Comic to the left. In his own comic book, Superman is selling for about $3.2 million on ebay.
