Superman: Rare comic going up for sale in online auction

Posted on

A “pristine” copy of the comic book issue that debuted Superman will go up for auction on a website this Friday, reports the Associated Press. Bidding for Action Comics No. 1, which was originally available for 10 cents in 1938, will start at $1, but the co-owner of the website running the auction told the AP that he expects the copy to sell for higher than $126,000 (which is what the same issue in “fine” condition normally sells for). Only 100 copies of the comic are known to exist, according to the story. The auction, at ComicConnection.com, will last for two weeks.
