In April 1938, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster introduced Superman to the masses. From that moment forward, pop culture would never be the same.
Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1, and today it’s almost impossible to find a copy of the book. However, miracles do happen, and the valuable issue — in good condition, no less — has come to light. (The owner purchased it in 1960 when he was 9 years old. It cost him 35 cents.)
The book goes up for auction on Feb. 27 on ComicConnect.com. The bidding starts at $1 and there’s no telling how high it will go. Action Comics #1 is estimated to be worth $126,000 in “fine condition,” but experts expect it to sell for more. (Reprinted from USA Today)
