Just Monday, a copy of Action Comics #1 sold for a cool million smackeroos, which three whole days ago (it seems so long ago, doesn't it?) was a new record for the highest price ever paid for a so-called "funny book." It was inevitable that the record would eventually be shattered. Still, who would have thought that it would be later in the very same week?
Well, Rich Johnston is reporting on his blog Bleeding Cool that a copy of the Batman's first appearance, Detective Comics #27, sold at auction for the new new record price of $1,075,500.00.
Yeah, take that, Superman!!
By the way, according to Johnston, there exists somewhere another copy of Action Comics #1 that is in even better condition than the one that made news on Monday, so this record may not last long if that books owner hears this news and starts to see dollar $ign$.
