‘Action Comics’ #1 Saves Family From Foreclosure

In the nick of time, the Man of Steel has saved a family’s home … for real. A couple facing foreclosure found the collateral they desperately needed with the discovery of an Action Comics #1 in the basement, aka, the Holy Grail of comic books.

As any true fan boy knows, Action Comics #1 is the most significant comic of all time because it was Superman’s debut to the world. In fact, the issue birthed the entire genre of the super-powered hero.

The fortuitous find occurred when the family (who have chosen to remain anonymous) began the painful process of packing up their home due to a bank’s foreclosure proceedings. The house had been in the family’s possession since the 1950s, which is probably when the wife’s father stashed the issue in a box with some other, mere mortal titles. When they first realized what they may have found, they contacted Stephen Fishler, co-owner of New York’s ComicConnect.com and Metropolis Collectibles.
