Buying Action Comics #1

I couldn't believe it. Today, I walked into my local comic book shop, and for the first time in my life, I was able to buy Action Comics #1. This wasn't one of the special reprint facsimile editions, but a real honest-to-goodness copy of Action Comics #1. Look below!

And can you believe it only cost me $3.99? The last time a copy of Action Comics #1 went up for auction, in February of last year, it sold for one million dollars. How did I manage to buy such a valuable comic so cheaply?

Well, for anyone following comic book news, the answer is obvious:

Burstein buys the brand-new Action Comics #1, which does not cost nearly as much as the original version from 1938, from Benn Robbins at the Brookline New England Comics.

Today DC Comics released Action Comics volume 2 #1, and that was the comic I bought. It's not worth one million dollars at the moment, but just in case it becomes just as valuable as the Action Comics #1 that was published in 1938, I bought two copies. (Don't tell gnomi, though.)
