Over on MSN today, there was a special report about a family that was packing up due to them losing their house and in the midst of doing so found some old comics in the basement. Now they weren’t just random Age of Apocalypse issues or even some classic Gardner Fox/Murphy Anderson goodies. Nope, they found the grand-daddy of them all: Action Comics #1.
Now, the family wishes to remain anonymous but contacted Stephen Fischer of ComicConnect to verify it’s authenticity, as well as put it up for auction (where the lowball would be about $250,000). Obviously more than enough to keep them in their home, which had been in the family for more than fifty years.
Talk about a Godsend.
