Original Superman comic saves a family from foreclosure

Postby Charles » Wed Jul 28, 2010 7:49 pm

A family in danger of losing their home discovered an original Action Comics comic book from 1938. The family owned the house since the 1950s and when they were packing up to leave because of the foreclosure process, they discovered the comic book in an old box stored in the basement.

Action Comics was the first appearance of Superman and is valued at $250,000.
