Nicolas Cage is almost as big a fan of comics as he is of terrible haircuts and spending ridiculous amounts of money. Unfortunately his latter habit has necessitated the sale of his impressive comic book collection. He has previously put up some great issues, like Avengers #1, but he just set all sorts of records with his latest sale. Nicolas Cage’s copy of Action Comics #1 just sold for $2.1 million. That’s a hefty chunk of change for you or me, or a one night eBay shopping spree for Cage.
This comic is worth more than everything I own. I want it.
It is awesome to see how valuable comics are getting these days, but at the same time this sale is disappointing. Everybody knows Nicolas Cage loves comics enough to take Luke Cage’s last name as his own, and it is always sad to see a collector forced to part ways with their prized possessions. Then again, it could be considered karma for making movies like Bangkok Dangerous. The part about this that really upsets me is that I don’t see myself having $2.1 million to spend on Action Comics #1, the holy grail of superhero comics. Guess I just need to start losing my mind and starring in every random movie I can while taking a comic book character’s last name. I think I’ll go by Jordan Odinson from now on.
