SUPERMAN NETS A MILLION


A rare copy of the first comic book featuring Superman sold yesterday for $1 million, smashing the previous record price for a comic book.

A 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books, was sold from a private seller to a private buyer, neither of whom released their names. The issue's cover features Superman lifting a car and originally cost 10 cents.

I've known about this issue and it doesn't surprise me. I'm glad actually - means people are taking collecting comics (and pulps hopefully) seriously.
