All hale the comic book! Wow! A copy of Action Comics #1 introducing the Man of Steel in 1938 has just sold for 1 million dollars!
ComicConnect.com posted a rare copy of Action Comics #1 on their site Monday morning. It was the issue where the Man of Steel made his debut in 1938. They were selling it on behalf of an unnamed collector. Within one minute an unnamed collector bought it for $1 million.
"It is the single most important event in comic book history," said Zurzolo, who co-owns auction site ComicConnect.com with founder Stephen Fishler.
That price is more than three times the previous record, set last year by a lesser-quality version of Action Comics #1, which ComicConnect sold for $317,200.
