According to the art website Artdaily, the owner of Torpedo Comics has paid $ 317,200 at auction for the first edition of Action Comics, featuring the debut adventures of Superman.

John Dolmayan, drummer for System of a Down and owner of Torpedo Comics, is now the owner of the first edition of Action Comics, from June of 1938 which is famous for having in its pages the debut of the “Man of Steel”.

This sets a record price for a comic book, but far from the $500,000 that Comic Connect estimated it to be worth.
