ACTION #1 goes for $317,200


An ultra-rare, much-publicized copy of ACTION #1, Superman’s first appearance, has sold for $317,200. The purchaser is John Dolmayan, drummer for the rock band System of a Down, but he acquired it for an unnamed client. (When not busy bashing the skins, the comics-loving Dolmayan also runs an online comics company.) ComicConnect and Metropolis Collectibles brokered the sale.

The seller purchased the book at a secondhand store in the early 1950s for 35 cents.


  1. less than half a mill. Few years back, slabbing companies would’ve touted that issue, grade 9 or above as being worth much more than that.

  2. Um, but this copy wasn’t a 9.0 or above, it was slabbed as a 6.0.

    So a 9 or better would have certainly commanded much much more than $317K.
