In the time it takes to download this app, you will become an expert comic book collector. Launched in October 2017 at the New York Comic Con, Key Collector Comics is the world's FIRST AND ONLY mobile app that isolates highly collectible comics known as "key" issues. Never before has there been a resource like Key Collector Comics that informs you of over 7,000 individually researched issues that every comic fan wants to add to their collection.

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.)

Great App, Great Features, Worth It’s Weight


So, downloaded the app to find all the first appearances of my favs and especially stuff I didn’t know about. App did great at digging down and catching the B players that always get missed but get played in the after movie credits. Liked the app then

Then they added the Key Alert with the paid subscription. Paid the measly, almost comically low price, got three alerts, ordered the books before the public knew and paid for my subscription for the next 5 years!! Love the app now. Like truly, if you speculate and you don’t have this app..thanks, more for me. They’re still updating but even now, nothing beats it.

Get em BEFORE their hot!


Yes this has an ever-growing database of keys for hundreds of characters across several universes, yes it is constantly updated with new contests and giveaways, yes I spend hours just looking through the comics related to different characters, learning things I didn’t know before... but what I love the most about this app is that it sends me notifications as soon as news happens as to what key comic is related to the news so I can seek out the comic and snatch it up before it gets hot. It really is an innovative app and a great way to keep track which keys you have and which ones you want. And definite MUST HAVE for any comic books collector or fan!

Collecting and Logging Key Comics The Easy Way


As an on and off comic collector spanning over three decades, one of the things that I had difficulties with was trying to figure out which comics were considered key issues. This was especially problematic once I started to go to comic cons, never knowing which ones I should bring to get it signed and graded. This problem went away when the Key Collector Comics app was created. It has dramatically cut down on the search by...well, a lot. And even better is being able to log which comics I own or want. This is a must own app for all comic collectors out there.
