action-comics-1-cgc-9.0-whiteThere continues to be a great deal of debate over where this comic auction will end up when it closes on Sunday night, but one thing’s for sure — it will be a new all time record price.

The Action Comics #1 CGC 9.0 now up for auction on ebay has just hit $2,193,919.38, a new all time record which surpasses the $2.16 million mark that the Nicolas Cage Action Comics #1 9.0 copy set in 2011.

And showing that even the most serious comic book collectors have a sense of humor, a couple bidders have made a point of slipping the number sequence “1938” (the year that Action Comics #1 was published) in their bid amounts, such as the currently-leading $2,193,919.38 bid.

Ten pre-qualified bidders have bid in the auction so far, with several well-known dealers and collectors among them.  Four bidders have pushed past the $2 million mark so far, which should make Sunday night very interesting indeed.
