One Million dollars



“It’s the single most important event in comic book history,” adds ComicConnect.com co-owner and COO, Vincent Zurzolo.

Well, it's finally come to this: An 8.0 copy of ACTION COMICS #1 featuring the first appearance of Superman has sold at auction for $1,000,000! Read all about it HERE! Guess I'll dig out my five copies I've been sitting on all these years. But of course I kid. Anyway, I would say that comic book collecting is doing pretty well as a hobby, even during these tough times. (This still doesn't explain that NEW MUTANTS #98 that just sold for $12,250.00!)

A million smackers. And the poor bastard who shelled out for it can't even open it up and smell it. Whoever came up with this CGC crap should be slapped upside their head. By a robot.

Amen Tom!!! Smack them with a hard plastic unreadable comic shell!!! Maybe it will crack and someone can actually READ the comic!!! What a concept!
I'm glad I'm not the only anti grading crusader.
