Landis and Popplewell

Craig Popplewell stands with movie director John Landis at a comic book show.

Days are long gone since anyone thought comic books were just for kids. It’s the old saying, “Follow the money.”

There’s big bucks in comics, especially old ones. A few years ago a 1938 Action Superman comic sold for $3.2 million. It is considered to be the beginning of the superhero group and the most valuable comic book in the world. Reportedly there are less than 100 in existence. Debuting in June 1938, it sold for 10 cents which is clearly marked on the cover.
