People must reeeaaaallllly, really love comic books.
Nicolas Cage's nearly prestine copy of Action Comics No. 1 is for sale on the comic book collection website, comicconnect.com
And it's on pace to sell for two million dollars?
Originally stolen from Nic Cage back in 2000 and recovered April 2011, the comic book is currently at 900,000 dollars and the auction ends on November 30, 2011.
This would make the comic the most expensive comic book sold on the open market.
The comic is particularly famous as it is the first appearance of Superman back in 1938. The comic was found by a stroke of luck when a man bought the contents of an abandoned storage locker in San Fernando Valley.
While it is not official the found comic is Cage's, the history of the comic matches Nic's stolen copy.
Experts are claiming the actor as the owner and it is listed under Nicolas Cage on the auction website.
But seriously, two million dollars for a comic book?! A comic book no one can touch or read?!
That's a lot of money for 70 year old paper!
