Value of Marilyn Monroe Comics

Marilyn Monroe Comic Book Price Guide

The 1950s to 1960s American sex symbol who wowed an entire generation, from blue collar workers to the President, Monroe (click for Wikipedia article) has become an icon of pop culture long past her untimely death from a drug overdose.

There are a few romance comic books featuring the blonde bombshell, and the ones documented are relatively scarce. Others parody the celebrity.

Some of the most valuable romance comics feature her photo on their covers, before she was really famous, "just" a model doing gigs. Other comics have Marilyn rendered in cartoon art.

If we have missed any comics from this guide, please get in touch and we will put it right.

We have included a few other publications which CGC will certify for interest, including the world-famous Playboy #1.
