Back in 1938, Action Comics #1 turned up at the newsstands and drugstores of America. The cover featured a man in a blue and red suit and a cape running while holding up a green late model automobile.
The comic-book cost ten cents.
In 2014, one of the few remaining copies sold for over three million dollars.
In 2018, DC Comics published issue #1000. It’s an 80-PAGE GIANT, making it about the length of its famous predecessor. Whereas that Depression-era funnybook only devoted its first story to the Man of Steel, 2018’s is all about the Superman.
