  • Action Comics #1 is the first issue of the original run of the comic book series Action Comics. It features the first appearance of several comic book heroes—most notably the Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster creation, Superman. For this reason it is widely considered both the beginning of the superhero genre and the most valuable comic book of all time. On August 24, 2014, a copy graded 9.0 by CGC was sold on eBay for US$3,207,852. It is the only comic to have sold for more than $3 million for a single original copy. Action Comics would go on to run for 904 numbered issues before it ended in the fall of 2011. It is not to be confused with the first issue of the second series of Action Comics which was launched as part of DC Comics' New 52 revamp in the fall of 2011.
