Nostomania's 100 most valuable comic books

With each pricing update we compute and show here the 100 most valuable comic
books. We chose NM 9.4 as a "baseline" grade for comparison. Clearly, some of
these items may not, and probably do not exist in that grade. While we'd all like to
hold out hope there is a NM 9.4 Detective Comics 27 out there, the odds are very
slim.
