  Metropolis COO Zurzolo Promoted Comic Investments with Yahoo Finance

At last weekend’s New York ComicCon, Yahoo Finance interviewed Metropolis Collectibles’ Vincent Zurzolo, COO and also co-founder of the Guinness World Record auction house, ComicConnect. On the show floor at the Javits Center, Zurzolo discussed the viability of comic books as investments and the start of the boom during the Great Recession.

“My business grew right after the last recession,” he told Yahoo Finance. “People were looking for tangible assets. They looked to comic books and comic art and started investing in it and buying and selling and trading, and it’s built the business.” Zurzolo said. “We hit a world record right after the recession. The first record we hit was for Action Comics Number #1, during the recession it was sold for $317,200 which was a world record. That same comic today would probably be worth $4 million.”

Zurzolo has helped a myriad of investment collectors in building their own world-class portfolios. Contact him at or call toll free at 1-800-229-6387 for his assistance with your investments.

Action Comics #1 CGC 9.4 R is just one of the investment highlights of ComicConnect’s Event Auction #41. Bidding begins November 11, 2019.
