Superman Saves Home From Foreclosure

A struggling family that had taken out a second mortgage on their home to support a business venture that failed in the recessionary economy was saved from foreclosure when, in the process of packing up their belongings, they discovered a copy of Action Comics #1 in the basement.

The family, which lives in the South and wishes to remain anonymous, contacted Metropolis Comics and Collectibles in New York. According to a report on ABC News, their copy of Action #1, which graded out at a #5 VG (Very Good/Fine), is expected to bring upwards of $250,000 at auction.

The family, which had inherited the home when the wife’s father died and had lived in it for years, was able to keep the house when representatives from Metropolis Comics were able to convince bank officials of the worth of the comic, which will be up for auction on ComicConnect.com from August 27th through September 17th.

Imagine finding something worth so much at the last second. ^_^

That's awesome ... though, I wouldn't wanna sell it. But, I would maybe because I'd be the target of secret crazy fanboys who'd want the copy while I was accidentally taking too long by talking to this cute sales representative who was at my door telling me I had to fill a form to sponsor a child in another country, and I just have to stop my thought process because it's turning out to be a porno in my mind, track selection already done even. Damnit.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
