Hot on the tail of last week’s news that Jerry Siegel’s heirs had been awarded the copyright to the Superman material in Action Comics #1, Silver Age Comics is auctioning on Ebay a Very-Good-condition copy of that very same issue, the holy grail of comic book collectors everywhere.
For those of you whose exposure to pop culture is limited to seeing the new stamp designs whenever you visit a post office: Action Comics #1 features the first appearance of Superman. That’s what we in the industry like to call “a very big deal.”
More mindblowing is that this particular copy comes from a collection that includes issues #1-200. My jaw drops in awe.
Last I checked, bidding was up to $48,000. Which is, like… 100 Canadian dollars, these days. So, some lucky Canuck has about three days left in the auction to scoop up quite a deal.
Thanks to Random Good Stuff for the find.
