Should I sell my comics?

I guess I was kinda lucky in that the Finnish editions of Marvel superhero comics were generally running 2-5 years late compared to original American books. (Plus the Finnish publisher for Marvel often released earlier classic stories in various anthology titles.) So even though I only started reading superhero comics during the latter half of the 80s, I got to read stuff like Claremont/Smith and Claremont/Romita X-Men, Roger Stern’s Spider-Man, Miller’s and Nocenti’s Daredevil, etc. By the time the Finnish comics got to stuff by Jim Lee/Liefeld/etc, i.e. the ”dark age” of superhero comics, I’d moved on to Sandman, Corto Maltese and other "mature" stuff, and had mostly given up superheroes. I think Claremont’s last issue of X-Men was one of the last superhero comics I read, until I returned to them in the 00s. So I managed to miss the dark age and the speculation boom almost completely.
