In the battle of Superman vs. Batman, it looks like Superman has prevailed -- for now. On Monday, a copy of the 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1 sold for $1.5 million, breaking the record comic book sale of Detective Comics No. 27, which was purchased for $1,075,000.

On February 22, the first record-breaking copy of Action Comics No. 1 sold for $1 milllion. It featured the first appearance of Superman in a comic book. But that record was soon shattered by the sale of a 1939 edition of Detective Comics No. 27, which unveiled Batman's debut on the comic scene.

Now another copy of Action Comics No. 1 has bested both issues with its $1.5-million price tag. The comic was sold on ComicConnect.com to an unnamed buyer, who Comic Connect owner Stephen Fishler said was "a hardcore comic book fan."
For $1.5 million, you'd have to be really into comics. As we previously reported, only about 100 copies of Action Comics No. 1 are still in existence, and only a handful of them are in such pristine condition. However, with all the news on these money-making issues, we just might be seeing more copies up for sale soon. %Poll-43618%
