We are pleased to announce that SCC will be holding a Comics Exhibition at STGCC this year. With this exhibition, we hope to generate interest to make comics a larger and more important part of STGCC. The idea is to get fans excited to read comics again. The exhibition will showcase some rare slabbed comics around the theme of “First appearances of Movie/TV Heroes”. For fans of characters such as The Flash, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Spider-man, Captain America or Wolverine, you can come see the issues where they appeared for the very first time - in some cases over 60-70 years ago. We hope to see you there at Booth No. FB7 (see STGCC floor plan below).

The Singapore Comics Community (SCC) would like to thank STGCC for making this presentation possible with logistics and other in-kind support.

Comics Exhibition: An Overview

The Comics Exhibition will feature slabbed comics, from Golden Age (1938-1950), Silver Age (1956-1970), Bronze Age (1970-1985) and Modern (1985 onwards).

We feel that this would interest hardcore comics collectors and casual comic fans alike. Visitors will get to see and learn about key comics published from the 1940s to present. These valuable comics, some very rare, would no doubt add a unique dimension to STGCC 2018 and help it to stand out from other South East Asian conventions.

The comics that will be on show include Mega Keys: Journey Into Mystery #83 (1st appearance of Thor), Incredible Hulk #1 (1st appearance of the Hulk), The Avengers #1 (1st appearance of the Avengers), The Brave and the Bold #28 (1st appearance of Justice League of America), Incredible Hulk #181 (1st appearance of Wolverine), Fantastic Four #1 (1st appearance of the Fantastic Four), Amazing Fantasy #15 (1st appearance of Spider-man), Strange Tales #110 (1st appearance of Doctor Strange, Signed by Stan Lee), Avengers #4 (1st appearance of Silver-Age Captain America) and New Mutants #98 (1st appearance of Deadpool).

We hope you will enjoy the show as we did putting it together for you. See you there.

SCC presents a behind the scenes look at putting together probably the greatest comic book exhibition ever in Singapore. It would be a milestone in Singapore's comic book history. The question is: will you be there?

Collecting Comics as a Hobby or Investment
Slabbing and Grading
Key comic books also means that it is the first time a hero/villain/character has appeared in the publisher's books. Normally these books will be highly sought after especially if that character turns out to debut in his own series. Some really notable first appearances include Superman, Spider-Man and Batman. Collectors generally will go after these books and will also pay top dollar for a high grade issue which brings us to the problem in the hobby. How do we decide how good a “condition” the book is when we want to sell it to a fellow collector? Everyone will disagree on the grading on a book. Grading of a comic book comes in these terms. The grades come in a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest possible condition of the book available. This scale is taken from the Overstreet Guide to comic book grading. MT 10.0......

Like Superman and Spiderman, the comic collector in Singapore can be elusive. Some of us have wondered who is this person. Does he or she have a secret identity like the superheroes? Even for the bestselling titles, newspaper reports would only give rough estimates based on ballpark figures provided by comic shops or booksellers. A few years ago, I...
