The Most Ancient of All Comics sold for $1M

Read this @ Yahoo!..had been reading short news lately on that site as a past time, haha..big surprise.. The very first comic book to feature Superman as sold at a smashing price of 1 million dollars! The buyer must have been the most addict comic collector I have ever heard.

Quoted from Yahoo! news:

"A 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books, was sold from a private seller to a private buyer, neither of whom released their names. The issue features Superman lifting a car on its cover and originally cost 10 cents...the seller was a "well known individual" in New York with a pedigree collection, and that the buyer was a known customer who previously bought an Action Comics No. 1 of lesser grade."

I am not a comic book collector, but I do understand why it is a very precious item for collectors. It is the original un-restored form of the comic, with a 8.0 grade. It is considered a jewel or more likely a diamond for collectors.
