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.)

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.

Do not miss this


I have been blown away by the quality of this app. As a near 50 year collector of comics, I have not ever had the pleasure of using such a finely constructed, beautifully rendered hobby assistant. The time and effort the developer has put in shines through with each use. Very much keeping my fingers crossed that a certain cataloging company (CLZ)reaches out to Nick in order to form a collaboration to further strengthen the hobby. Kudos all around. Download this app and open a door to collecting that has been closed until now.

Holy helpful must have app Batman!


This is such a helpful tool! This app is filled with useful information. A lot of hard work must have gone into creating this awesome app. My review here is 100% unsolicited...that should tell you something right there,in this day and age of so many "free" apps begging/demanding five star reviews before you even try it out.
This reliable app is highly recommended for anybody interested in key issues
