The Big Sixteen

Good goggley woggely, look at the entertainment a dollar-sixty cents could buy for a kid in just one month's time, from just one publisher back in the 1940s. What a great time to be a kid!

Some years ago, I decided I wanted to get at least one each of "The Big Eight" with the big logo, or in the case of More Fun & Star Spangled, any issue would do (since they went to the "small logo" years earlier than the other 6).

I finally finished that off when I got an Action #50 for a very nice price a couple years ago, but it was still well over a dime!

That's about $80 today, using the unskilled wage. Accounting for page count differences, that would put the expected modern price of a comic at about $1.60 to $1.75.
