Superman Comic For Record $2.1 Million At Auction

Nicolas Cage’s copy of the first Superman comic sold for $2.1 million at auction on Wednesday, breaking the currentworld record of a comic sold at auction (which previously stood at $1.5 million).

The comic, which was published in 1938 and originally sold for 10 cents, is one of approximately 100 copies of the Action No. 1 comic in existence, of which only a few are in good condition. Cage’s copy sold in nearly-pristine condition. The book was recently assigned a grade of 9.0 by the Certified Guaranty Company, making it the highest graded copy of the comic currently available.

The comic was stolen from Cage’s home in 2000 and found in April by a man who bought an abandoned storage locker and found the comic in the storage unit.
