July 25, 2010: Action Comics #1 Saves Family's Home

SDCC Superman saved a family's house from foreclosure and he didn't need to walk anywhere to do it. A family on the verge of losing their home found a copy of 1938's Action Comics #1 in their basement, according to website Asylum:

    The fortuitous find occurred when the anonymous family began the painful process of packing up their home due to a bank's foreclosure proceedings. The house had been in the family's possession since the 1950s, which is probably when the wife's father stashed the issue in a box with some other, mere mortal titles.

Steven Fishler of New York's Comic Connect and Metropolis Collectibles is selling the issue for the family. Read the entire story at Asylum.

Thanks to Chris Williams for the heads up on this story.
