The oldest surviving piece of original Superman art sold at auction last week for $286,800. And, surprisingly, Superman co-creator Joe Shuster didn't draw it.
In fact, it's the cover to Action Comics #15, cover dated August 1939, and it was drawn by Fred Guardineer, one of DC Comics' go-to cover artists at the time. The cover depicts Superman underwater, saving a disabled submarine. When the issue was released, it sold for a dime.

Fans have hopefully saved up some serious cred, because for those who have been aiming to get their hands on select props from the criminally underrated Dredd flick, now is the time. For the next two weeks, DNA Films and the Prop Store will be auctioning off a collection of excl

It wasn't previously thought to be a particularly important issue in the 50-year career of Marvel's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, but 1990's Amazing Spider-Man #328 has ended up in the history books - and it's all because of the cover. Well, it does feature Sp
