Top 100 Most Valuable Romance Comics

100 Most Expensive Romance Comics

After the superhero boom of the 1930s and 40s died out, Romance comic books became the hot newsstand seller.

Some of these comics are so rare and obscure that it's hard to get an accurate representation of their true value. For some of these comics, there are only a few copies still in existence.

Almost every time a back issue by one of them sells, it sets a new record price.

Romance comic books are still a developing market, and there is plenty of upside in many of these seldom-seen issues. They are starting to mirror the move in Golden Age horror comics.

A lot of recent record sales have been set due to exploding interest in the artists Matt Baker and L. B. Cole, who both were responsible for covers and interior art of multiple romance books from the early 1950s.
