Action Comics No. 1


In this image provided by Metropolis Collectibles/ComicConnect, Corp., shows the front and back cover of "Action Comics No. 1" from 1938, featuring the debut of Superman, that was found by David Gonzales mixed in with old newspapers insulating a wall in a house he was renovating in a small town in Minnesota. Gonzalez did some research that confirmed the comic was valuable, though not as much as it could have been. He got into a heated discussion with a relative about its value, and the back cover got ripped lowering the grade to 1.5 based on a 10-point scale.
