SUPER BUCKS PAID FOR RARE #1 COMIC


Cover art for the ‘Superman’ comic book, 1930s.

NEW YORK (AP) — A rare copy of a Superman #1 comic book
that sold on newsstands for a dime in 1939 was purchased for
$2.6 million in an auction.

The comic showing Superman leaping over tall buildings on
the cover was sold Thursday night to a buyer who wishes to
maintain a secret identity,
according to ComicConnect.com,
an online auction and consignment company.

The seller, Mark Michaelson, bought the comic in 1979 from its original
owner and kept it in a temperature-controlled safe.

Michaelson, now semi-retired and living in Houston, paid his way
through college by buying and selling comics.
