A copy of the 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, featuring Superman's debut, sold Monday for $1.5 million on the auction website ComicConnect.com, again breaking a price record that has been broken twice this year already.
The issue, which originally sold for 10 cents, is widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books.
The same issue sold in February for $1 million, but that copy wasn't in as good condition as the issue that sold Monday. That price was bested just days later when a 1939 comic book featuring Batman's debut sold for $75,000 more at an auction in Dallas.
