Read the World’s Most Expensive Comic Book Online

Action COmics #1Originally published in June 1938, Action Comics #1 is the premier issue of the Action Comics… The book eventually sold for $3,207,852, officially making it the most expensive comic ever – and now you can read a digital scan of that very issue, provided by the CGC from when they graded it and now released online.

This particular copy of Action Comics #1 made big news a few months ago when a CGC-graded copy of it popped up on eBay. The comic had been rated a 9.0 on CGC’s scale, indicating it as near-mint quality – incredible for a 76 year old comic book, and the rarest of the already extremely rare comic (less than 100 originals are thought to still exist, barely any of that number in as good quality).

There’s more to Action Comics than just Superman though – there’s plenty of other stories in the issue, from the début of master magician Giovanni Zatara (you might be more familiar with his daughter, Zatanna) to stories from lesser known classics like ‘Scoop Scanlon, Five Star Reporter’ and cowboy Chuck Dawson. It’s a fascinating bit of history to flick through.

Check out the full scan over at CGC’s website.
