51XcVQralSL. SL160  Batman Comic Sells For One Million DollarsHoly payday, Batman! The comic book containing the first appearance of Batman, namely Detective Comics 27, has made history once again. A copy of the legendary comic has sold at auction for over ONE MILLION DOLLARS (Go on, put your Dr. Evil voice on and say it out loud).

The auction of the Batman comic book took place in Dallas, where the 1939 released comic was sold to an anonymous bidder. This follows on from a recent sale of an early Superman issue for a million dollars, but the Batman sale out-priced it!

The seller bought the issue of Detective Comics during the sixties at a price of $100, and had kept it in excellent condition ever since. This is an amazing amount for a comic book to sell for, and these two high profile sales are a boon to the interest in comics right now.

Collectors will hopefully see prices rise a little for collectible issues, and with a number of big movies and games around featuring comic heroes right now, this does bode well for the continued success of the industry.
