Rare comic showing Superman's 1st appearance to be auctioned
LOS ANGELES- A well-preserved issue of the 1938 comic book that first featured Superman is heading to the auction block.
Profiles in History announced Friday that it will sell a copy of Action Comics #1 at a Dec. 19 auction in Los Angeles. The comic, which features Superman hoisting a car over his head on its cover, is expected to sell for between $800,000 to $1.2 million.
The auction house says the comic is in its original condition and has been rated in fine/very fine condition.
The sale comes a few months before the 80th anniversary of Superman's debut. The auction features other Superman memorabilia, including a costume worn by actor Christopher Reeve in 1983's "Superman III."
The Man of Steel is back on the big screen this week in "Justice League."
