Scifi Wire is reporting another Action Comics #1 selling at, yet again, a record-breaking number of one and a half MILLION DOLLARS (insert Dr. Evil face here), beating out the previous record of $1 million and surpassing the sale of $1.075 million of Detective Comics #27 set a few months ago. Apparently, this particular copy was given a grading of 8.5 compared to the past record-holder which had an 8.0. Still, that’s freaking impressive.
I’ve had the pleasure to see one of these rare comics on exhibit, but have never seen a ‘Tec #27. Maybe one day.
I just want to know who has these copies, because three years ago, there was only a reported thirteen left on record. I wonder if these auctions are those issues, or if new ones are being found.
Seriously though, I’d love a quantum leap accelerator or a flux capacitor right about now.
