Richard Morrison suggests stamps and comic books as investments:
Holy investment opportunity, Batman
Stamps give stocks a licking
It is silly to think of stamps or comic books as investments. My feelings were best summed up by this quote:
Hervé St-Louis, publisher of Comicbookbin.com, a Calgary-based Web site dedicated to comic book fans and collectors, said those who want to invest in comics should abandon the idea and put their money into stocks or real estate.
"Forget the money aspect of comic books," he says. "Only buy what you like and pass it on to your kids."
