leave a comment »

The comic that started it all just sold at auction for a whopping $1.5 million. That breaks the previous record for a single comic which was set recently for a Detective Comics #27, which is the first appearance of Batman.

It is estimated that approximately 100 copies Action #1 still exist today, however it is unlikely that any will ever top this price. The original issue was released in June 1938.

The issue marks the first appearance of Superman and is credited as starting the entire comic book industry

One day, I shall own one of these. One day…
