Original Superman Comic Set to Hit eBay With £1.5m Expected Price

By Gary Cutlack on at

Comic book fans with investment banker dads might want to hit up eBay in early August, as the auction site will be hosting the sale of an original copy of Action Comics #1 -- the 1938 issue in which Superman made his first appearance.

The auction goes live on August 14th, with the comic described as being in perfect, "just came off the newsstand" condition. And if you're not able to buy it and haven't already experienced Superman's first rescuing adventure in later reprint form, a scan of the original is readable over on the auction house's site.
