First Issues

Fanboys just love first issue comics, and Ash is no exception. When he is ordering his comics, he’ll buy first issue comics just because they’re available. Most people like them because they think that they will be valuable someday, like the comics from the early 20th century. However, most people forget that the reason those old comics are so valuable is because they are so rare. The reason they are so rare is because people used to read comics and throw them away because they were an ephemeral medium. (I wish that was still true today.)
