The Action Comics No. 1 comic book (pictured at left) that was stolen from Nicolas Cage in 2000 and found last April was sold for $2,161,000 in an online auction. It sets a record for being the first comic to earn more than $2 million at auction on Wednesday. The previous record was set in March 2010 when a less pristine copy of Action Comics No. 1 sold for $1.5 million. There are approximately only 100 copies of Action Comics No. 1 — which has the distinction of being the first one to feature Superman — in existence. Only about five others, all of which belong to private collectors, are close to the quality to Cage’s copy and only one, which has never been publicly viewed — may exceed in quality. Cage bought his in 1997 for about $150,000 and had it on display in his home in a security frame mounted to the wall when it was stolen.
