A friend of mine and I were just (like, earlier today) discussing Cage's recent fire sales of his previous belongings in an attempt to stave off bankruptcy, when looky here:
A near-pristine copy of Action Comics #1 -- better known as the first appearance of Superman -- sold at an online auction Wednesday night for a staggering $2.16 million.
The seller? None other than cash-strapped actor Nicolas Cage, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cage turned a super-sized profit, the Reporter noted. He bought the 1938 Man of Steel original 14 years ago for roughly $150,000.
The buyer has remained anonymous. But "he's an extremely passionate collector, and he treasures owning the best of the best," said Vincent Zurzolo, chief operating officer of New York-based ComicConnect.com, which conducted the auction. "In particular, he loves Superman."
Who doesn't love Superman? Wait...I don't, but that isn't really important. What's more impressive than a funnybook pulling in two million smacker...
