If you thought $35 million for a Ferrari was outrageous, get ready for this.
A rare copy of Action Comics #1 – which features the first appearance of Superman – in near perfect condition, sold for a jaw-dropping $3.2 million on eBay Sunday, making it the most expensive comic in the world.
The previous record was set in 2011 when another copy of Action Comics #1 sold for nearly $2.2 million.
When it was launched in 1938, the comic was sold for just $0.10 on the newsstands.
Action Comics #1 is considered the holy grail of comic books. According to collectors, there are as few as 50 unrestored copies still in existence.
The lucky seller of the comic was collectibles dealer Darren Adams, who is the owner of Pristine Comics in Washington.
