It's true that the company in which said comic book has sold in the secondary market no longer has their hands on it nor would benefit financially from it. But they have ways around that now. Namely Trade Paperbacks. When a story or an Artist with name recognition goes "out of print", they just repackage a select run and then sell it again, usually at an increase markup due to paper quality, etc...

And then if the book/series is really popular they will keep repackaging it over and over. The crown jewel in these types of runs ends with the Absolute Editions, which basically is an oversized Trade Paperback in Hardcover/Coffee Table Book format ranging in price of anywhere from $60-$80. Sometimes more.

I actually go for these Coffee Table Books now as I rather skip the whole waiting each month for a book that may or may not come out due to an artist falling behind schedule.
