Nicholas Cage was able to get his rare copy of ‘Action Comics’ No. 1 back in April, after it has been stolen from his house in 2000. Due to an online auction on Wednesday, the most sought-after comic in history sold for a record $2.1 million, after 50 people bid on June 1938 book in which Superman makes his debut.

However, Nicolas Cage’s copy though the identity of the owner has not been disclosed but many believe that is still belongs to the actor. It is one of only 100 believed to remain in existence. It has been made as the best condition of an Action #1 that has ever been graded by the leading comic book grading company, Certified Guaranty Company.

By shattering the previous $1,5 million record for a less-well preserved copy of ‘Action Comics’ No.1 sold last March, Nicolas Cage’s comic became the most expensive to ever sell at auction when it went for $2,161,000. The comic book was stolen from his house in 2000 and then recovered by Los Angeles police when an unidentified man bought the contents of an abandoned storage locker in the San Fernando Valley.

Cage reported that it was stolen on 21st January 2000, after noticing that it along with two other rare comics had been stolen from security frames mounted on the wall of his Los Angeles home. As per the reports, the experts believe that only five other No.1 copies with quality near Nicholas Cage’s exist and all are in private hands. He bought his copy at auction in 1997 for around $150,000.
