In 1938, the man of steel was introduced in Action Comics #1, and the world would never be the same.
Earlier today, ComicsConnect.com sold an extremely rare, high-grade copy of that comic for $1,000,000.00, shattering all previous records for a comic book. Prior to this sale, the record price for a comic was a lesser grade copy of Action Comics #1 which sold for $317,200.00 last year.
“It’s the Holy Grail of comic books,” says founder Stephen Fishler, one of the leading experts on collectible comics.
“Before Action Comics #1, there was no such thing as a superhero or a man who could fly,” notes Fishler, who created the 10-point grading scale which today is used universally to evaluate the condition of comic books.
“It’s the single most important event in comic book history,” adds ComicConnect.com co-owner and COO, Vincent Zurzolo.
There are only two known copies of this comic book that have been graded at 8.0. You can view more details of the sale at ComicConnect.com.
