It has recently been announced that the original Action Comics #1 will be up for grabs on eBay, the place where comic books needs are met. Action Comics #1 is in near mint condition and will be auctioned on from August 14 to 24.
Just refresh your memory, the Action Comics #1 saw the debut of Superman and Lois Lane. In 1938, when the comic originally cost only 10 CENTS!! Legends has that only 50 to 100 original copies exist.
This isn’t the first time that a copy of an Action Comics #1 has been sold. The 1938 comic was sold in February 23, 2010 in New York for $1 million, making it the first ever million dollar comic book. The only difference is in the rating. The comic being sold now received a rating of 9.0 out of 10, the highest grading that an Action Comic #1 has ever received. The other one only received an 8.0. The rating was done by Certified Guaranty Company, a well known comics rating company. Nothing but the best for Superman!
Good news is that a portion of the proceeds will go to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation .
