Vincent Zurzolo announced that the one-of-a-kind Action Comics #1 “Rocket Copy” sold for $3.55 million breaking our own record of $3.25 million for an Action Comics #1 in 2021.
In January 2022, the Action Comics #1 “Rocket Copy” sold for $3.18 million at public auction, then in September 2022, a collectibles company sold the same book for $3.4 million and a few months later, ComicConnect eclipsed both sales. The book is notable as the 13-year-old buyer in 1938 plunked down his dime, then stamped the image of a rocket ship boldly in red right next to the title. Adding to the collectability, Zurzolo added, is the actual rubber stamp that produced the original rocket ship imprint was included in the sale. “I love the rocket stamp!” he said. “It fits perfectly with Superman’s origin story when he came to Earth in a rocket ship as a baby.”
The buyer, a prominent figure in the tech industry, is choosing to remain anonymous. "As a kid, I've always dreamed of getting an Action Comics #1 someday and I'm so excited to get one in a great grade,” he said. Among collectors, Action Comics #1 is considered the most important comic book ever issued, Zurzolo said, adding, “The superhero genre essentially was born with this issue alongside the Golden Age of comics itself.”
ComicConnect is no stranger to million-dollar-plus sales of vintage comic books. In 2021, we were recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for having achieved eight sales of $1 million or more.
“I believe that comics remain one of the most compelling alternative investment categories, with values that have room for appreciation and growth, especially in comparison to other categories,” Zurzolo said.
