if you like super heroes then you’ll know what I am talking about. if you don’t know I’ll tell you, the origin of Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Spiderman & other superheroes is the comic book. since the debut of theprototypal superhero Lee Falk’s The_Phantom in 1936 followed by Superman in 1938 the Most Expensive Comic Book Ever Sold, stories of superheroes – the comics have grown, with the apparition of DC comics & Marvel the industry has seen record sales. now in the technology area, the comics are digital, so you can read it on your iPhone, iPad and/or other devices.
but the Most Expensive Comic Book Ever Sold is old school, an actually book that someone happened to find it on the wall of their new home. what’s it about? & why is so expensive? $2.89 million expensive actually. is called “Action Comics 1” & in there you can find a compendium of stories featuring Marco Polo, “Sticky-Mitt Stimson” & “Scooby the Five Star Reporter” & the first appearance of “Superman”. created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster thought they should edit their unsold newspaper to produce a tale about Superman’s origin & first adventures. if you ask me, that was a brilliant idea. in the content of the book you can find out about baby Superman who is dispatched to Earth by his father from a “distant planet” (because there is no mention of Krypton) suffering a cataclysm. he spends his life in a orphanage were he learn he has super-strength & super-speed & can leap great heights & long distances but is not mention he can actually fly. also, we can see in only 13 pages, Clark Kent the Superman’s name he adopts in his adult life to solve a murder also we can read about him humiliating a wife-batterer & recues Lois Lane from gangsters.
now let’s talk about why is the Most Expensive Comic Book Ever Sold. with less than 100 copies left in the world not many of them are in a decent condition. & the comic book has a rating of 9.0 which means it is near-mint condition. like I was saying earlier a man found the comic book insulating a wall in his house in Minnesota but that copy was priced only at $175k. The Most Expensive Comic Book Ever Sold once belonged to Nicolas Cage & it was the first comic ever to break the $2m barrier at auction in March 2010. the starting bid was just $1 but there was a reserve price of $900,000, far more than the 10 cents it sold for when published in 1938. the identity of the buyer has not been revealed, but it’s hard to imagine it being your average comic book collector.
