CovrPrice - The Hot New Comic Book Price Guide

Collecting comic books is as common today as baseball card collecting was in the mid 70’s and 80’s. People from all walks of life, all over the globe, come together and connect over this incredible hobby.

An important aspect of collecting is knowing what your collection--especially that gem that is your pride and joy--is worth. Searching around, it is not hard to find vendors claiming to have the most “current data” and “accurate assessments” around. But how do we know who and which price guide has the most relevant information? Today we also expect a lot more of our guides, not simply a price lookup. They need to have interesting content, a convenient site to navigate, and a collection tracking system to keep up on its value. Not to mention so much more that has become not only expected of a price guide site, but mandatory as well.

Enter Covrprice.com with the realization that the community had a desire for a “next level” approach: real-time data to keep up on changing trends and values within a digital collection. Comic Burst recently spoke with John Sulaitis and Matt DeVoe, co-owners of CovrPrice, to discuss how their up-and-coming comic book price guide will change the way people think about price guides.
