Superman Comic auctioned off for a cool Million!

  • on: February 23, 2010, 06:59:30 PM
i am not really sure if this makes sense to anyone, but riding the underground today (they have news screens going), i saw a report that 'someone' paid ONE MILLION $$ (!!!) for a first print edition of the very first superman comic book, dated 1938. the auction was by internet (ComicConnect.com) and all bidders were anonymous.  :? nooo sh!!!t???
who pays that kinda sum for a comic book anyways? must be someone reeeaaallly eccentric and reeeaaallly wealthy and someone who reeeaaallly loooves cartoons and comic books and maybe is even collecting such art...hmmm...who could that be?  8-)

it was weird that while i was on the train, this news-bit was played twice and i was reading anyway, but everytime i looked at the screen, i saw that particular one, so i read it twice.  

my immediate association was the painting michael had an artist do of himself, sending him a comic book excerpt of: superman (ta-daaa...!) when he turns from clark kent into superman (more ta-daaa...!). with that a note saying: 'can you make me one like that?' it's in the opus book, which also just happened to be published... :roll:

i know, i'm totally michaeling... :mrgreen: i feel like a tex avery comic character, hitting myself on the head with a frying pan or a baseball bat...dang...dang...dang...(see the chirpin' birds fluttering around my head? no? i see them...they're just sooo cute...)

but i wanted to share this with y'all. i had to laugh so hard on the train, people looked at me like i was a nutcase. i need some encouragement. anyone?  :| (pleeeaase, someone tell me i'm not goin' crazy! and i'm not drunk or anything, either!)

Weirdly enough I was driving to work when I heard that and my first thought was...Oh I wonder if that was Michael  :?:  :lol:

There is many wealthy collectors who would pay that money, it's  nothing big for some pay 1 mil.. Collectors buy every day something very expensive.

i know. but this is really an extraordinary high sum. the highest price someone paid for a comic book so far was $ 375,000 or something in that area. that's quite different to a million and it fits with the recently published super-michael.

i could be off, too, sure. but i could be right, making that connection. who's to say?  ;)

thanks for your opinion, 'doctor death'. btw, i am a lady, and you're right. i feel like going totally gaga. i'm not even a particular fan and still, this keeps my mind busy most through the day. it bothers me, too.  ;) but in a good way; at the same time, this is like a magic carpet ride and i'm having a ball with it.

but the trick about 'thinking hoax' is to take these little things and put them into a context somewhere. this is not guessing, it is drawing a line to something mj was associated with. it's not like i'm seeing someone throw a pie in someone else's face and i'm thinking 'this is a clue!'. nope.

the auction was internet only, totally anonymous and it is the highest sum ever paid for a comic book. and i'm even going so far as to draw another line: mike played a superhero in 'captain eo' and in his own movie 'moonwalker'. i'm not making connections out of nowhere, i put them into context. it's not wild guessing.

i wrote this thread because it rung a bell, not because i'm just guessing. but i get your point. peace.  :mrgreen:
