A rare copy of Action Comics No. 1, introducing Superman in 1938, was sold at auction for $6 million, setting a record for the most expensive comic book ever sold.

The 1938 Action Comics No. 1, known for introducing Superman and Lois Lane, was sold by Heritage Auctions to an anonymous buyer for $6 million. Heritage Auctions has labeled this issue as the most significant comic book, partly due to its historical impact and the rarity of surviving copies, with only about 100 estimated to remain. This sale surpassed the previous record of $5.3 million for the most expensive comic book, evidencing the high value of rare comic books in the collectors' market.
