Justice League of America comics have been around since the dawn of the 1960s. But the Justice League heroes were all favorites of the DC Comics stable long before that.
Talk of a Justice League movie in recent years has (so far, anyway) led to nothing.
While Marvel superhero movies continue to break records, DC struggles to get established stars like Superman back in the public consciousness.
A JLA movie would be a potential smash, if The Avengers movie was anything to go by.
What would it do to JLA comic book values? Again, history points to books like Tales of Suspense #39 (first Iron Man) and Amazing Fantasy #15 (first Spider-Man), which have rocketed since successful movies were made (and sometimes, remade!).
Early into the Silver Age, 18 months before Fantastic Four #1 launched the Marvel Age of Comics, Brave and the Bold #28 saw the first appearance of the JLA.
This is a very desirable comic book to find. As long as it's complete, this comic is worth at least $300. See prices now.
It's easy to see why this super-team would have been popular with comic book fans -- something for everybody there!
The comic also saw the first appearance of Snapper Carr.

The following month, Brave and the Bold #29 followed up the successful debut. Sci-fi was pretty popular at the time, so the robot cover would have pressed the right buttons.
Second appearances are not as hot property as firsts, but still, this comic book has decent value. (Click to see.)
Collectors want this to be at least very good condition before adding it to their collection. Lower-grade copies are definitely sluggish movers.
The third and final (for now) appearance of the JLA in Brave and the Bold #30 saw them fight Amazo.
You'll need to find this comic in solid mid-grade (around 5.0 to 7.0) to have something worth hundreds of a dollars, but a complete copy in poor shape is worth about $50.
A few months after the successful tryout in Brave and the Bold, the series got off to its official launch with Justice League of America #1.
If you've found a copy of this desirable comic, then you're in luck. Well done!
It's really increased in value in recent years. Click to see current prices.

JLA #2 continues the story from issue #1.
It's also got decent value, though nowhere near as exciting a find as #1. Unlike some Silver Age comic books, though, it's worth something, even in badly beaten-up shape.
If you'd like us to assess the value of your JLA #2, then submit it for a free appraisal here. We'll give you a value and make you a Dollar offer if you wish to sell.
JLA #3 is very hard to find in higher grades, because the black cover shows any imperfections on the surface.
There are only six copies known at 9.0 or higher (three are graded 9.4 by CGC).
The good news is, it has some value even in very good to fine shape.

Here's a surprising switch of gears away from the JLA comic books.
Mystery in Space #75 is the story sequel to JLA #3. Technically it belongs in the series before issue #4 (see below).
There are many more high grade copies of this comic than JLA #3. It's a decent find, but far less valuable than JLA #4.

Here are some crucially important early issues in the Justice League history.
This is an important milestone for the JLA comic book.
It's not as valuable as issues #1-3, but it's certainly a decent find. Click to see current values.
We'll value your copy of JLA #4 if you wish. Click to send us photos (front and back cover are best). We'll also offer to buy your comic if you want to sell.
JLA #5 is a classic comic book cover in my opinion.
"When Gravity Went Wild" -- very cool idea!
It's also the origin and first appearance of Dr. Destiny, which gives the book some additional market value.
Found one? Click here to send us photos of your comic. We'll value it and make you a cash offer if you wish to sell yours.
JLA #9 is the first origin of the Justice League in comic books.
This makes it a must-have for fans of the JLA comic books. It's also a very cool cover (like so many JLA covers from the early 60s).
Check out current market prices by clicking here.
We'd be delighted to offer you cash if you have a JLA #9 in your possession.
