Comic book values are dependent upon many factors: rarity, condition, and demand are the most important.
A comic doesn't have to be actually very rare to be valuable (for example, Incredible Hulk #181 is a very in-demand book, even though it's not at all rare -- the first appearance of Wolverine has made it quite a valuable comic).
And there are plenty of rare comics which are not very valuable, simply because not many people want to collect them.
For example, "funny animal" comics are barely collected, and no matter how rare individual issues are, they are simply not worth a lot of money.
Superhero comics from the same period are always worth more. Early Superman comic books are worth 10 to 20 times as much as a funny animal book from the same era, even if the Superman comic is found a lot more often.
