Bid on the Ebay Auction for Action Comics #1, Richie Rich!

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.

Action Comics 1

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.

    My usual offer: a hug and a high-five.
