MICHAEL CARBONARO, co-founder of Big Apple Comic Con, NYC’s longest-running Comic Book Convention and one of the world's leading experts on collectibles, has acquired one of the most valuable comic books in existence! It's an amazing copy of Action Comics #1, the comic book that introduced Superman to the world, graded at a whopping 7.0 by Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) and is valued at $1 MILLION. It is estimated that only 100 copies have survived since it hit the newsstands on April 18, 1938; it is one of the nicest and most valuable existing copies. It will be on display all weekend, for viewing and for sale, at the Dave & Adam's Card World Booth.


If that wasn’t enough, there will a SECOND copy on display at the show as an auction preview courtesy of Vincent Zurzolo, co-founder of Big Apple Comic Con, and owner of Metropolis Collectibles. This copy is graded at 5.5 and will be auctioned off in May. Never before in history has there been TWO copies of Action Comics #1 in one place at one time of this much value!!


Come see the comic book that started it all, a "Holy Grail" objet d'art that has captured the attention of passionate collectors and casual fans alike for almost 8 decades! The Man of Steel was created during the Great Depression by two struggling young Clevelanders, writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, and published continuously by DC Comics. Superman is one of the most recognizable and popular characters ever created and known to millions of fans across the world!


Returning for its 22nd triumphant year, the Big Apple Comic Con is an exciting two-day event features the best of the Comic Book, Sci-Fi, Cosplay, Fantasy, and Pop Culture. Hundreds of dealer tables will be selling comics, toys, collectibles, videos, T-shirts, sci-fi jewelry, and more, just in time for your spring shopping! Comic Book Legends Stan “The Man” Lee (creator of the Marvel Comics Universe) and Frank MIller (Sin City, 300) will be at this year’s show. Lee will be there the whole weekend; Miller will be appearing Sunday only.
