As I was putting second hand comics on my ebay shop I got to wondering, What is the most expensive second hand Comic???

Well I had a look and according to www.most-expensive.net/ it is “Action Comics no 1”, released in June 1938.  Can you believe that a copy of Action Comics #1 was sold by ComicConnect.com in March, 2010 for $1.5 million. Wow, I hear you say…

World's Most Expensive Comic Book - Action Comics #1

So why is it so expensive I hear you ask! Well, It is written by Jerry Siegel and illustrated by Joe Shuster, and contained our first 12-page glimpse of the iconic superhero, Superman.

It is valuable because not only it is the first appearance for superman but it is also the first comic that contains the first appearance of the modern superhero…

So next time some body says comic book readers are just nerds or geeks, just tell them about how much a little comic sold for recently…….
