Los Angeles, Feb. 23 (Reuters): A very rare, first edition Superman comic book in top condition sold today for a record $1 million in a public sale held by website ComicConnect.com.
Owners of the website said the book, Action Comics #1, was first published in June 1938 and introduced the crime-fighting superhero to fans. It described how he was born on a different planet and came to Earth. The book also introduces his alter ego Clark Kents love interest, Lois Lane.
Stephen Fishler, ComicConnect.com founder, said the comic is one of only around 100 in existence.
