Action Comics Auctions: Astonomical - A'S'HGACB:SH*

*This is part of a semi-regular series in this blog "A 'Slight' History of Golden Age Comic Books: Super Heroes". To catch up on the other posts, click the label in the right hand column or at the bottom of this post, abbreviated to A'S'HGACB:SH.

Just recently (around a month or so ago) a copy of Action Comics #1 sold at auction for $1,000,000. THAT'S BILLION WITH AN "M", PEOPLE! An extravagant amount, especially considering the previous high-dollar mark was in the $300,000's. A few days later, a copy of Detective Comics #27 (the first appearance of Batman) sold for even more than THAT and just this week another copy of Action #1 went for an all time new record of 1.5 million.

This chain of events was discussed this week when I had a few beers with the golden age of comic book super heroes down at The Drink Hole.

Whatever it may have been, I'd like to express my thanks to the new followers to my blog this past week and to my fellow bloggers who have added this humble blog to their "Blog Rolls" on their own pages. It's much appreciated!

See y'all tomorrow!
