What’s the most you would pay for a comic book? Do you have any first appearances of iconic superhero characters? On Monday August 25th 2014, Superman’s first appearance in Action Comics #1 sold for a record amount. Action Comics Number 1 sold at auction on Ebay for $3,207,852.00
A previous copy sold for over 2 million, however it was not in mint condition. The copy of Action Comics No. 1 sold on August 25th 2014 is said to be in mint condition.
The previous owner had taken down a lot of money in the sale, but remember, Ebay gets a full 10 percent on the gross sale. Ebay made a killing in the sale too earning $300,000 on the sale. Great money for an entity that didn’t take care of the comic book for over 70 years. Do you think it’s fair Ebay earns so much from auctions?
