pulp for the millions [ 1 ]

de superhelden waren duur afgelopen week …

Spiderman 1962Afgelopen week versloeg de eerste Batman uit 1939 de eerste Superman uit 1938 tijdens een veiling. Beide superhelden verdienen nu definitief de status van million dollar man. Het wachten is nu op een superheld-fetisjist én miljonair die een miljoen neerlegt voor de eerste Spiderman in Amazing Fantasy uit 1962.

Printed in 1938, the Action Comics No. 1 features a picture of Superman on the front cover and is widely regarded at the single-most desirable edition ever created. The excellent condition of this particular comic is the primary reason it sold for such a sum. Rated at 8/10 for its quality, the copy is in far better condition than most of the approximate 100 that remain in existence.

de eerste Superman in 1938 10 cent per stuk is nu 1 miljoen dollar waard. De eerste Batman leverde drie dagen later zelfs nog meer op
A 1939 comic book in which Batman makes his debut sold at auction on February 25th for more than $1-million, breaking a record set just three days earlier by a Superman comic, Heritage Auction Galleries said. The Dallas-based auction house said the rare copy of Detective Comics No. 27 sold for a total of $1,075,500, which includes the buyer’s premium, to a buyer who wished to remain anonymous. The consigner wanted to remain anonymous as well.
