About this app

Key Collector Comics FREE mobile app is the world's first database and price guide to focus exclusively on key issues. Everything you need as a collector of valuable comics or highly-sought after issues including speculation books is combined into one resource.

Catalog your inventory or build a wish list of key issues. Select what condition your comic is by using the CGC and CBCS grading scale. Get key issue notifications sent directly to your phone to know what's new and hot or spiking in value in the comic book world.

Key Collector Comics has been endorsed by Neal Adams, Alex Ross, Stanley Artgerm Lau, Brian Pulido and Valiant Entertainment

Here are some examples of what makes a comic book a valuable “key” issue:
* Character First Appearances
* Death & Origin Stories
* Variant Covers
* Iconic Cover Art
* Rare & Recalled Issues
* Classic Stories

Key Collector Comics simplifies the hobby of collecting. In the past, if one wanted to hunt for a character or title’s key issues, they would have to access four different apps:

App 1 - Search for information on a comic book title or character
App 2 - Determine a value and consider what you should pay
App 3 - Inventory what you own to a personal database
App 4 - Consult your notes app or carry around a piece of paper with your wish list on it

Sound familiar? Do any of the aforementioned headaches apply to you? Key Collector Comics has combined everything a collector needs into one, simple to use, FREE mobile app in the most intuitive environment available that requires absolutely no learning-curve. Now, with this one resource you can:

* Search by Title, Title and Issue #, Character, Writer, Artist or Publisher

* Browse by a changing list of categories like 100 Iconic Superhero Covers or Batman’s Greatest Arch-Enemies

* Catalog what you own with one tap

* Build a wish list of priority comics you’d like to own

* Select the grade of your book and notate if it has been professionally graded or not

* Choose to use our price guide or elect to input your own dollar value

* Record the amount you paid for a comic to accurately view the sum total of your investment as it fluctuates based on comic book market conditions

Key Collector Comics was created by a comic book collector for comic book collectors and the #1 priority is to make your experience more fun. How? By giving you the assurance that no key issue will ever slip through your fingers again and drastically cutting down the amount of time you spend looking through a box of comics. Just flip through issues with one hand and scroll through the app with the other. If anything on the app matches what’s at your fingertips then you just found yourself a key issue.

The database is updated at least once a week to include new character debuts that have been announced. You can add these comic books to your “wanted” list before they even hit the shelves so when Wednesday rolls around (when new comics are released) you leave the store or check-out online without missing a thing.

There are well over 7,000 individual issues organized in the database that have some instance of significance attached to it. You can search for over 2,500 characters in 1,700 titles from major publishers like Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Valiant, Image and many independents producers from the Golden Age of comics (1935) to today. Key Collector Comics is your guide through the history of comics told through the key issues that defined the landscape.

More Features:
o A simplified price guide and grading assessment for new and experienced collectors to determine if a comic book appropriate for purchase

o The ability to expand displayed comic covers for a more detailed view

o The ability to collapse covers for faster scrolling through listed keys

o A filtering option that lets you search in a specific comic book age (Golden Age 1935-1950 approx. , Silver Age, Bronze etc.)

Not good for pricing comics. Key collector focuses mainly on keys which is great but I am not happy overall with inaccurate values on books, especially the modern age. They also fail in placing any importance on variants unless it is a ratio variant. My biggest problem is when I had tried to submit a key that is not in their database, I had received no response. I am going to look for other apps...

Decent app, worth the $20 a year. Needs a barcode scanner, also searching doesn't always work, have to force close app and reopen for it to work again. Shouldn't be depended on someone else to stay up and running. Should be able to download series info to phone, so it can be used offline as well, especially at conventions you dont get good cell service at, other apps can do it no problem.

Decent app, wish there were more like it in the app store, but IT CRASHES EVERYTIME I USE IT. VERY FRUSTRATING. Oh well, I'm not paying for an app that crashes everytime I use it. EDIT: I've reinstalled it three times, I'm not wasting more time on trying to make it work properly. Oh well. ***Edit: The newest updated version is just awful, I hate that nothing is showing up in any search until I adjust the filters now. This app is useless. I'm deleting it.

I'm sorry for your experience. Our main service provider experienced a major outage this past Saturday. This was an issue that was out of our control. Trust me, we were as frustrated as you with this, unfortunately we were at their mercy and had to wait for them to resolve the problem. The app is working fine now.

What's new

- Fixing some small layout issues.
- Moving the account deletion option so that it is not as easy to accidentally press.
