Nicolas Cage's infamous copy of Action Comics #1 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, sold at auction for a record $2 161 000. It is the first comic to ever break the $2 million mark. It's also the most pristine graded copy of Action Comics #1 in existence, boasting an impressive 9.0 from the Comics Guarantee Corporation. The issue, along with a number of other rare comics, was stolen from Nicolas Cage in 2000, but turned up in a San Fernando Valley storage locker in April this year. The previous record for a comic book was another issue of Action Comics #1, sold in March 2010 for $1.5m.
