Superman goes for super bucks

NEW YORK (AP) - A rare copy of the first comic book featuring
Superman has sold for $1 million, smashing a record set just last
year.

The issue sold Monday morning is a 1938 edition of Action Comics
No. 1, widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books. It features
Superman lifting a car on its cover and originally cost 10 cents.

It was sold by a private seller to a private buyer, neither of
whom released their names. The sale was conducted by the auction
site ComicConnect.com.

The previous comic book record was set last year when $317,000
was paid for the same Action Comics No. 1 issue. This copy fetched
a much higher price because it's in better condition.
