Who Says Comics Don't Pay
Oh, c'mon. GUESS!
Yep, as Benjamin would say, "That's half-a-million simoleans, greenbacks, or smackers."
The 1939 copy of Detective Comics No. 27 features the debut of Batman and was the star of a recent Heritage Auction in Dallas.
The Billy Wright collection also included Action Comics No. 1, a 1938 issue featuring the first appearance of Superman, which sold for about $299,000.
But wait, there's more...last year a copy of Action Comics # 1, sold for more than $1.5 million. Comic Book Resources reports that about 100 copies of the issue are believed to exist, and only a handful of those are in good condition. It has a cover price of 10 cents.
So maybe you should hang onto your comic textbooks.
