On Friday, the auctioneer said that a rare copy of the first Marvel comic book sold for more than $2.4 million.
Is “almost one of the top three comic books in comic book collecting,” says Vincent Zurzolo, chief operating officer of ComicConnect. It’s known as the Marvel Comics #1 “pay copy.” The book was sold by an auctioneer in New York City on Thursday night for about $2,427,800.
The buyer’s name has not been made public. Zurzolo said that he is “an extremely passionate comic book collector and investor.” He also has a lot of other things that he likes, too.
Published in 1939, Marvel Comics #1 introduced characters like the Sub-Mariner and the original Human Torch, which was a precursor to the character of the same name who later became a member of the Fantastic Four. Comic books, movies, TV shows, and video games all came from the book.
Because it has the publisher’s handwritten notes about how much each of the many writers and artists was paid, this “pay copy” is very valuable. There was a time when Frank R. Paul earned $25 for drawing the cover of a book that is now worth more than 100,000 times that amount.
Zurzolo: “It’s a very important look into the world and behind the scenes of the making of a huge comics company.”
Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Avengers, Iron Man, Daredevil, and the Hulk, also known as the Incredible Hulk, would all be part of the Marvel universe in the end.
What will happen if this comic book isn’t made? Zurzolo said: “Maybe none of that will happen.” “Maybe the name “Marvel Comics” resonated so well with people, in some way, that that led to the birth of all these other things.
