This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment. StartEngine Collectibles Fund I, LLC is not currently accepting investments from FL and TX.


Reasons to Invest



  • Notoriety: Few comic book characters have permeated contemporary culture like Batman. Batman #1 is iconic for being the first stand-alone Batman comic book, its portrayal of the Dark Knight and his sidekick Robin on the back cover, as well as the first appearance of their arch-nemesis: Joker.  
  • Scarcity: Before becoming a staple of society via films, various media and merchandise, Batman appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. It took a year for the character to merit its own comic books series.
  • Rarity: Only 280 copies of the book have been submitted to Certified Guarantee Company for grading. This example has been graded at 2.0 by CGC making it incredibly desirable.

WHAT IS SE Collectibles?


StartEngine Collectibles is the future of alternative assets

StartEngine democratizes investment opportunities in assets once reserved for industry professionals and the affluent, by breaking down the barriers to entry such as marketplace access, industry insights, proper procurement, authentication, storage, and insurance for these alternative assets.

Alternative Investments:


The 2018 U.S. Trust Insights on Wealth and Worth survey on wealthy households found that while baby boomers and older investors rely primarily on traditional stocks and bonds, younger investors, especially millennials, are more likely to incorporate alternative strategies into their investment portfolios. 


Millennials allocate 17% to alternatives and assets other than stocks, bonds and cash. It also found that 61% of millennial investors think it’s not possible to achieve above-average returns by investing solely in stocks and bonds anymore, and are looking for alternative investments. For example, the report showed that millennials are the fastest-growing segment of art collectors, up 8% year-over-year and comprising 36% of total respondents. We believe these shifts in millennial investing tastes suggest there will be more interest in investing in alternative assets.
