Action Comics #1 holds an almost mythical status in Comic history, the début of Superman and the birth of the Superhero comic as we know it. It’s been available to read online before, but never in a quality quite like this – not surprising, as this is the most valuable, pristine version of it ever sold.
This particular copy of Action Comics #1 made big news a few months ago when a CGC-graded copy of it popped up on eBay. The comic had been rated a 9.0 on CGC’s scale, indicating it as near-mint quality – incredible for a 76 year old comic book, and the rarest of the already extremely rare comic (less than 100 originals are thought to still exist, barely any of that number in as good quality).
The book eventually sold for $3,207,852, officially making it the most expensive comic ever – and now you can read a digital scan of that very issue, provided by the CGC from when they graded it and now released online.
