A pristine copy of Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman, sold at ComicConnect.com for $1.5 million to an undisclosed buyer. This is the third time this year that the record price for a comic book has fallen. This particular copy is the highest graded copy of Action Comics #1 known to exist (CGC 8.5), so it will probably be a while before this record is broken again.
Vincent Zurzolo, co-owner of ComicConnect.com said:
“This is the Holy Grail of Holy Grails… The book looks like it just came off the presses yesterday. The colors are extremely vivid, the whites behind the ‘Action Comics’ logo are snow white. It’s just a stunning copy — it almost looks brand new.”
