The Story Behind “Selling Superman” Comic Book Collection

As we’ve reported on before, the upcoming “Selling Superman” documentary is set to tell the story of Dale Watts, an attorney living Metro Detroit, whose obsessive collecting became such a problem for his family that it destroyed his marriage… but now, years after his death, that obsession has become a very lucrative legacy left behind for his family.

CBS News Detroit covered the story of Dale Watts, interviewing the family members he left behind and the enormous collection that was both a curse and a blessing.

“Selling Superman” is an upcoming documentary that follows director and producer Adam Schomer’s friend Darren as he contemplates selling his father’s prized possession, picking up the pieces of his childhood and rewriting a family legacy. Will he discover the heroic power we all have inside – that of choosing what we assign value to?
