Superman turns 70…ish

As I said to my terrified boyfriend in September of 2007… I’m late.

This time, however, I am referring to the anniversary of the first publications of Superman.  June 30th, 1938: Superman debuted in Action Comics.  Almost exactly one year later, in June of 1939, Superman #1 was released. 

I cannot even fathom how much a mint of one of these babies is… I found one on ebay with a reserve bid of $30k that was only rated ‘good’ or a 2.0 by the CGC.  (It goes up to 10, which is “Gem Mint”)

So Happy Birthday, Superman.  And thanks for making the nerds of the world that much richer and cooler for investing in comics instead of football.  Score.
