Okay, sometimes comics collections <i>are</i> worth something

After posting numerous items about collectors discovering their treasured comics aren't worth much of anything, it's a little refreshing to come across this story about a Michigan man who learned the contents of his dead father's longboxes are valued at $100,000.

Detroit's Channel 4 News was so excited that they broadcast live from Wonderworld Comics & Games in Taylor, where Jonathon North had the comics appraised.

The collection, which was left to North by his father, contains Golden Age and Silver Age comics, including Showcase #4 and The Brave and the Bold #28.

Of course, reporter Natalie Sentz has to go and ruin a perfectly fine story by suggesting that anyone who wants to start "investing" should look into The Amazing Spider-Man #583, which features the meeting of President Obama and Spider-Man.
