Comics: Should I get signed or unsigned variants from the Artist's official site?Watch
He is offering signed and unsigned versions through his official website but this is irritating as:
- they are ruddy expensive (serves me right for not getting them in august)
-The signed variants are alltogether £15 more expensive now.
-The signed variants come with certificates of certificates of authenticity from the author (it is his official website afterall) but would this have any impact on the value of the books further down the line (would unsigned variants be better for collection purpose).
I know this topic is regarding comics but in all seriousness, I consider these a form of art & physical copies should be collected, bot read (also helps marvel gives you a free digital copy if you get a physical comics if your interested in reading).
In anycase, I am debating whether or not to get as I dont really collect comics (the last comic I get was the original spider-gwen comic 2 and a bit years ago, before that it was 5 issues of superior spiderman in 2014 and that is it).
The main point is - get them if you'd love to own them! My partner and I collect original comic art (pencils and inks) from our favourite artists because we absolutely love them, not because of how much they're worth - because we look at them every day and get super excited we own something so special and limited, which is the kind of reason you should have for getting a signed item!
