Nic Cage's Comic Book Being Sold Online…For 2 Million Dollars?! WTF?!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueNicolas Cage


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!

    So, it's history. Get over it? Are you saying the same thing about original Shakespeare plays? No! Superman is part of culture and has influenced society. While I wouldn't pay that much for a comic (because I don't have that much anyways), I won't judge other people who do.

    Re: Dyna_Chaal – Not trying to be mean to the Superman author… but what a poor comparison to say Shakespeare, the master of english literature…. and a comic.
    Anyway, thats what it goes for due to its history Perez. Cage is the owner and can sell it to whatever price he wants to, apart from that, he just doesnt make up the number randomly, he gets suggested the price that it should go for.

    Re: bleahf – so what? Literature changed the last couple of centuries. I adore Shakespeare more than most and he's my absolute favourite author, but literature is also a highly personal thing and some people might value Superman comics from the 1930s as much as any Shakespeare play. Oh, whatever. I don't care. I agree with you. It's Cage's comic and it's his right to sell it at whatever price he feels is the right one. As long as people are willing to pay that much…let them be happy

    Smart move on his part; anyone stupid enough to pay for it needs counseling.
