Superman Comic Earns $1 Million

Superman is now super expensive…

Well, at least the original.

By original I refer to a 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, the first comic book featuring the Man of Steel and showing him lifting a car on the cover.

10 cents…the cost of this comic book back in the day.

Action comics No.1 is widely considered the pinnacle of comic book collecting, and there are approximately 100 copies in existence. This particular example was in stellar shape, topping the quality level of another example that sold last year for $317,000.

Although not confirmed, the buyer is thought to be one John Dolmayan, drummer for the rock band System of a Down, and purchaser of last year’s copy. The auction was held by ComicConnect.com and co-owner Stephen Fishler.

That’s one super deal..!
