Superman’s First Appearance Up For Auction

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 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)
