Action Comics #1 sells big

Not surprisingly, an original copy of "Action Comics #1" sold for big bank on an Internet auction — $317,200.

The comic was bought by John Dolmayan, drummer for the rock band System of a Down. He said he was purchasing it for "client" he declined to identify.

Only about 100 copies of Action Comics No. 1 are known to exist.

Frankly, I'm only surprised Nicholas Cage wasn't willing to pony up $320,000 as a gift for little baby Kal-El. Guess his copy of Superman #75 will have to do.
