The 10 Most Expensive Comic-Books Ever | 3. Superman 1
3. Superman 1

Value: $715,000

What’s it about? Actually little more than a reprint of Superman’s first four strips from the pages of Action Comics, plus a few pages of new material for your ten cents, expanding the back-story and introducing Ma and Pa Kent. So we get Superman’s origin and first forays into superheroism. Then beyond Action Comics #1, Supes gets in the way of a munitions magnate trying to start a war; takes on a criminally negligent mining company; and levels the playing field of a rigged football game.

Why so valuable? The contents may be recycled, but it’s the first solo comic for the Man Of Steel.

Superman done correctly should trump Batman. A crossover would be epic, especially if Batman gets to kick the tar out of big blue on the big screen. More
