Comic Book Sells for Record-Breaking Amount

Action Comics #1 was the first comic book that featured Superman. It was sold in 1938 for 10 cents. A high-quality copy was just sold for a record-breaking price of $1 million, making it the world's most expensive comic book:

The transaction was conducted through the auction site Stephen Fishler, the co-owner of the site and its sister dealership, Metropolis Collectibles, orchestrated the sale.

Fishler said the seller was a "well-known individual" in New York with a pedigree collection and the buyer had previously bought an Action Comics No1 of lesser importance.

"It [Action Comics No1] is considered by most people as the most important book," said John Dolmayan, the comic book enthusiast and dealer best known as the drummer in the rock band System of a Down. "It kind of ushered in the age of the superheroes."
