Well that didn’t take long. It has been announced that a copy of Detective Comics #27 was sold for $1,075,500. This sale price just edges out the million-dollar sale of Action Comics #1 on Monday, which had smashed the precious record of a paltry $317,000.
The 1939 issue of Detective Comics features the first appearance of Batman. Technically, the issue sold for “only” $900,000, with auction house fees composing the remainder of the total.
Despite being down, Superman still has a chance to retake the title. There’s another copy of Action Comics #1 up for sale and it’s in better condition than the one that sold Monday. So it’s looks like the fight for most expensive comic isn’t over just yet.
