The "holy grail" of comic books has sold for a "super" price. This near-perfect copy of "Action Comics" issue number one sold for $3.2-million dollars on Ebay. The auction closed Sunday night. It's one of the highest prices ever paid for any comic. This one is especially rare, as it marked the very first appearance of Superman, back in 1938. Collectors say only about 50 copies remain, but few are in good condition. The seller says this copy is the best-preserved of its kind. A similar copy sold for more than $2-million in 2011. The winning bidder has not been identified.
