Is a assortment of thirty,000 comics really worth the investment?

A comic guide-mad couple have invested hundreds of 1000’s of bucks on their unique assortment, but has it been really worth it?

Kevin Maroney and his wife share a severe passion for comic books .

The couple have been acquiring comics for the last forty years and have a collection of thirty,000 issues to display for it.

After making an attempt to sell a third of their enormous assortment in 2012, they realized the hard way just how minor their prized possessions are worth.
