Superman comic sells at auction for $2.16m

A rare comic which features the first appearance of Superman and was stolen and disappeared for 11 years, had sold at auction for a whopping $2.16m.

The pristine copy of Action Comics #1 became the world's most expensive comic in the process -- despite initially costing 10 cents in 1938.

While the comic was stolen from a collector in 2000, it reappeared earlier this year and (after being returned to its rightful owner) was listed on

CEO Stephen Fishler said: "After spending so many years looking for the book, I was blown away when it appeared."

And now, after receiving about 50 bids from around the world, the valuable comic (graded nine out of 10 for quality) has sold for $2,161,000.
