Superman rescues house from foreclosure

July 27, 2010 04:00PM

A family facing foreclosure found the collateral they needed right in their own basement, with the discovery of an Action Comics #1 — Superman‘s debut, Asylum reported. The comic book was found when the family began to pack up their home — which they owned since the 1950s — due to a bank’s foreclosure proceedings. They then contacted Stephen Fishler, co-owner of New York’s ComicConnect and Metropolis Collectibles. The comic book will go on display this weekend at the Comic-Con in San Diego, where it will be officially graded. Fishler predicts it will get over $250,000 when it sells at auction. The family wanted to remain anonymous but they spoke to Asylum through Fishler, saying they were “shell-shocked” when they found it. [Asylum]
