A rare copy of Superman’s comic-book debut sold for a record-setting $3,207,852 million on eBay – the highest amount ever paid for a comic book. To many comic collectors, this is the holy grail – the 1938 book in which the superhero first appeared, was graded at 9.0 on a 10-point scale used to measure vintage comic books’ condition. ComicConnect.com, an online auction site owned by New York comics dealers Stephen Fishler and Vincent Zurzolo, purchased the issue from Darren Adams — a collector who runs the Pristine Comics shop in Washington state. Fishler said he and Zurzolo have no specific plans yet for his pricey copy, “It was just too good of an opportunity to pass up,” he said.
