Therefore, we focus on art created by:
• Contemporary artists whose message resonates with our community;  
• Artists who have either institutional support or established gallery representation  
• Artists who have sufficient available data. Since we vet works through rigorous quantitative analysis, we require enough data to build a quantitative case for a work.

• Feature key first appearances of culturally relevant characters;  
• Highest supply quality
• Sufficient issue-level price data to make a quantitative case for the book.

• Are part of prominent collaborations or have culturally significant creators
