For those of us who are or at one time were comic-book collectors (or just reading for the fun of it
), there is a Holy Grail. Something that we've all dreamed of finding in a dusty attic or basement at a relative's house or something. A copy of Action Comics #1
- the very first appearance of Superman.
|He couldn't fly back then, by the way.|
OK, I'm not nor was I ever a big fan of the Big Blue Boy Scout. That didn't stop me from daydreaming about finding a copy of Action #1
hidden behind a panel in a closet somewhere. I'd rather it be a copy of Detective Comics #27
, but whatever. Dreams are what comic-books are all about. They never come true, though. Right?
A family facing an imminent threat of foreclosure on their home stumbled upon a rare find
in their basement. That's right...a copy of Action #1
. Not in great condition, but good enough to solve their foreclosure woes.
Dreams do come true.
___________________________________________________ Note: Remember to play the Badgerdaddy Trivia Challenge every day. I never find anything good in the basement...ever.
WTF ?!?! HOW does someone just "find" that in their basement ?!?!
I saw that the other day. How cool is that?
Superman saves the day!
Heff - Yeah, that seems a bit weird. The house was in the family since the 1950's (you would think it would be paid off by now) over a couple of generations, I guess. Still weird.
RW - He always gets the good press while Batman gets the dirty work done. Sigh.
that story makes me crazy happy. i love that superman saved the day.
Becky - He always does. Damned boy scout...
LOVE stories like that - wish they happened more often, or at least, to me. :)
Sybil - more often would be nice. Just once to me would be awesome!
i know i'm ignert, but what was the cape for ?
Duderino - exactly!
