Nicolas Cage Comic Book Stolen Storage Unit

December 2, 2011 by staff 

Nicolas Cage Comic Book Stolen Storage Unit, THE world’s first Superman comic has been sold for a record £1.4million – by movie star Nicolas Cage.

The Action Comics No.1, which came out in 1938, originally cost just 10 cents.

Con Air actor Cage bought an original for £96,000 in 1997, when he was set to appear in a film about the Man of Steel.

One of just 1,200 still in existence, it is in mint condition. It was stolen in 2000 and recovered from a California storage shed in April this year in what Cage, 47, called “divine providence”.

The actor is so obsessed with the super-hero he named his six-year-old son Kal-El after Superman’s Krypton birth name.

The identity of the buyer was not revealed but auction director Vincent Zurzolo said it was “an extremely passionate collector who treasures owning the best of the best”.

Sources in the US claimed last night that Cage flogged the comic after getting into financial difficulties. Two years ago he sued ex-manager Sam Levine for allegedly squandering his fortune on poor investments.
