Come read the most expensive comic in history

Action Comics #1 is the most expensive comic book of all time, and Polygon has spoken to someone who paid $3.2 million for a nearly perfect copy. But is the comic itself good? How does the first appearance of Superman stand up to modern eyes?

You can head over to CGC Comics right now to read a digital copy of the book, and feel free to zoom in to really take in the art work. Superman seemed to be kind of a jerk, and I have some questions about whether that pardon in the first story is going to stand up to legal scrutiny, but it's worth your time to read about one of the earliest superheroes in the history of comics.

The physical artifact of the book is a collector's item, but this is your chance to check out the story itself. Have fun!
