Batman Beats Superman at Auction

A near-mint copy of Detective Comics #27 (1939), Batman’s first appearance, just sold for $1.075 million. The sale broke the comic book auction record set just days earlier with the $1 million sale of Action Comics #1 (1938), the first appearance of Superman.

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s official: Batman is better than Superman.

The record-breaking sale was made online via Heritage Auction Galleries, and the comic’s buyer is not yet known.
