A mint condition first edition copy of Action Comics #1, the first comic book featuring Superman has sold on eBay for more than $3.2 million.
Darren Adams, the owner of Pristine Comics in Washington State, received 48 bids on the comic, which was originally published in 1938. He sold it to an unnamed buyer. Here is an excerpt from the eBay listing:
This is THE comic book that started it all. This comic features not only the first appearance of Superman, Clark Kent and Lois Lane, but this comic began the entire superhero genre that has followed during the 76 years since. It is referred to as the Holy Grail of comics and this is the finest graded copy to exist with perfect white pages. This is …. the Mona Lisa of comics and stands alone as the most valuable comic book ever printed.
