Action Comics #1 Sells For Record $3.25M

One of the few copies of the comic book that introduced Superman to the world has sold for a super-sized, record-setting price.

The issue of Action Comics #1 went for $3.25 million in a private sale, ComicConnect.com, an online auction and consignment company, announced today. It narrowly bested the previous record for the comic, set in the auction of another copy in 2014 for slightly over $3.2 million.

The comic, published in 1938, “really is the beginning of the superhero genre,” said ComicConnect.com COO Vincent Zurzolo, who brokered the sale. It told readers about the origins of Superman, how he came to Earth from another planet and went by Clark Kent.

Vincent Zurzolo

The seller of this particular issue bought the comic in 2018 for slightly more than $2 million.

Zurzolo said that while there were hundreds of thousands of copies initially published, it’s estimated only about 100 exist today, and in varying conditions. He said this copy is among the best-kept ones. “There’s no comic book that you could value higher in terms of a comic book than Action Comics #1,” he said.

Jurassic Park Barbasol Dennis Nedry Action Figure – 2020 Convention Exclusive

The Jurassic Park Barbasol Dennis Nedry Action Figure was originally slated as a San Diego Comic-Con 2020 Exclusive for Mattel and Entertainment Earth. 

Mattel / Entertainment Earth Convention Exclusive! “Nedry! Nedry! We’ve got a Nedry figure here!” Based on the original Jurassic Park film, this Jurassic Park Barbasol Dennis Nedry Action Figure – 2020 Convention Exclusive is a must-have collectible for fans. In his splashy Hawaiian shirt and shorts, he measures about 3 3/4-inches tall and comes with film-accurate accessories that include the bag of money from Dodgson, a piece of pie, and the Barbasol can of embryos so you can reenact your favorite scenes. The 7 1/2-inch tall packaging is based on the Barbasol Beard Buster shaving can seen in the movie – it lights up and speaks authentic Dennis Nedry dialog! This exclusive figure is available for a limited time only, so grab yours before it goes extinct and you miss out. Colors and decorations may vary. Ages 8 and up. 

This cool Nedry figure is hidden in a Barbasol can that holds him and serves as a display case. For extra fun, twist the base of the can package to trigger a dramatic light effect and reveal the figure! Press the top of the can to hear these iconic lines Nedry says in the movie:

“Ah, ah, ah! You didn’t say the magic word!”

“Dodgson! Dodgson! We’ve got Dodgson here!”

“Don’t get cheap on me, Dodgson.”

“Ah, no wonder you’re extinct.”

“I’m totally unappreciated in my time.”

Relive the exciting big-screen action of Jurassic Park with this highly collectible Dennis Nedry figure! The fan-favorite villain and devious programmer is inspired by the scene when Nedry meets Dodgson for the cash-for-embryos deal in the original film. As Nedry enjoys a nice seaside breakfast, Dodgson shows up with a bag of money and the modified Barbasol can to hold the embryos.

Coming soon!
