Would you pay $3,200,000 for a comic book?
A copy of the first edition of a Superman comic book has sold for a huge price, $3.2 million.
New York comics dealers Stephen Fishler and Vincent Zurzolo said they submitted Sunday's record-setting bid in the eBay auction. Action Comics No. 1 is the 1938 book in which the superhero first appeared. That means it's rare. It is extremely hard to find. It's believed to be the highest price ever paid for a comic book. It's more than the $2.1 million paid for another copy of the same book in 2011.
EBay did not say who bought the comic book.
Superman was created by Cleveland teenagers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Action Comics No. 1 introduces the Man of Steel and his role as reporter Clark Kent. Superman came from another planet. He helped people in trouble.
About 100 to 150 copies are believed to exist.
