Gold Key Comics Price Guide

Value of Gold Key Comics

Gold Key was created in 1962 as a spin-off from Dell in an attempt to publish more children's titles. They created many of the more popular TV show tie-in books during the 1960s.

Gold Key Comics don't have typical issue #s on the covers. Sometimes they have a code, like this. Often you have to open the book to look in the fine print to identify themGold Key Comics don't have issue #s on the covers. You have to open the book to look in the fine print to identify them

It's important to note that the company's file copies have been sold on the market, flooding collectors with super high-grade material.

This explains why most Gold Key issues are not as valuable as you might expect, given their age.

Where is the Issue #?

Confusingly, Gold Key issues don't have numbers on their covers. They often have a code under the logo (see image on right).

The issue # appears in the fine print inside, which means you have to open the book to identify which one you have.
