That’s a lot of money for a comic book! Then again, it’s an almost pristine copy of the legendary comic book where Superman first made his appearance.
This sets the record for the most money ever fetched by a single comic book in an auction.
It’s the first time a comic book has broken the $2 million barrier. The issue was published in 1938 and cost just 10 cents.
“When we broke the record in 2010 by selling the Action Comics No. 1, graded at 8.5, for $1.5 million, I truly believed that this was a record that would stand for many years to come,” said Stephen Fishler, CEO of ComicConnect.com and Metropolis Collectibles.
Here’s a video report days before the auction that gives more details about this particular copy of Action Comics 1.
