London: The first ever Superman comic which was bought for a meagre amount of some 35 cent has fetched $317,200 (around Rs1.6 crore) at an online auction.
Rocker John Dolmayan, drummer for the Armenian-American alternative metal band System of a Down, paid the huge amount to possess the rare book.
The untouched ‘Action Comic No. 1’—which shows the Man of Steel lifting a car on the cover—went on sale on 27 February, the Contactmusic.com reported. After a two-week auction, Dolmayan entered the bid on Friday.
