Superman Comic Saves the Day!October 5th, 2010
A US family was facing foreclosure and the loss of the home they’d lived in for decades. Accepting the inevitable, they started sorting and packing the stuff they’d accumulated over the years. And what a surprise they found: issue #1 of Action Comics, the first appearance of Superman. It’s expected to sell at auction for about $250,000 (recent sales of the same comic in better condition have gone for over $1 million). This will save the house from foreclosure, but they had to get a comic book dealer to call the bank and explain the situation.
