A comic containing Superman's origin story is about to achieve a truly heroic sum at auction. The ultra-rare June 1938 copy of Action Comics No. 1, which is up for grabs at Heritage Auctions, could become the most valuable comic book to ever come under the hammer.

The "all-time best selling comics"MSN Screenrant

The list concentrates only on the recent decades and doesn't pay any attention to the massive sales during comics "golden era" when popular titles easily sold in the millions and would get cancelled for merely selling in the low hundred-thousands.

The highest-selling comic book issue of all time is 1991’s X-Men #1 by the legendary Chris Claremont and Jim Lee... this issue would remain a timeless classic as the beginning of the end for Chris Claremont’s 16-year career on the X-Men series. Selling more than 8 million copies, the two X-Men teams battling Magneto and the Acolytes is a huge “Thank you” for X-Men fans

50th Birthday of the direct market style of comic book retailingPublishers Weekly

The industry has evolved as it’s grown in the intervening decades, leveling up even as it has faced diverse challenges. Diamond Comics Distributors, founded in 1982, became the sole major distributor to the direct market in 1996 and a unifying force of sorts for the next 25 years. In 2024, there are now three dominant players, with the addition of Lunar Distribution and Penguin Random House. Toggling between the three distributors has made stocking complicated, and that in turn has spurred retailers to tackle a long-standing fundamental problem: the inconsistency of comics metadata."

Yeah. I had the LA premiere for Madame Web and then went to Mexico City. I had pneumonia and was on steroids and the nebulizer and doing all these little things, and I was really, really sick and felt horrible. I looked horrible. I was like, Ugh. And then the movie came out and it was… [Pauses.] Like, I can’t take any of it seriously at all."

The easiest way to understand that remark would be to say, yes, who wants to make a bomb? But elsewhere Johnson has complained that during the making of the much maligned Madame Web she saw creative decisions were being made by committee and the executives in production were trumping the actual filmmakers, that the film was being made by "algorithms."

Spider-Man vs Superman is coming back into printCNN News

You may think that Superman’s greatest rival is Lex Luthor – but, in the past, sometimes it’s been Spider-Man. The heroes were created decades ago by competing comic-book companies: DC, founded in 1934, and upstart Marvel, founded in 1939. Since then, the Big Two of comics have captivated fans with their superhero worlds: Batman and Wonder Woman on one side, The X-Men and Iron Man on the other.
