First Spider-Man’s Comic Sold For $1.1 million

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may be a financial disaster on Broadway, but the friendly neighborhood superhero just set a record windfall for one comic book collector. The comic book market continues to boom as the first comic book to feature Spider-Man sold for $1.1 million through comic book auction house ComicConnect, the same house that sold a 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, featuring Superman’s debut last year for a record $1.5 million.

The issue, first published in 1962, was sold Monday by a private seller to a private buyer, ComicConnect chief executive Stephen Fishler told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “The fact that a 1962 comic has sold for $1.1 million is a bit of a record-shattering event,” he said. “That something that recent can sell for that much and be that valuable is awe-inspiring.”
