[ComicConnect COO Vincent Zurzolo]
A CGC 8.5 copy of Action Comics #1 has been sold to a private collector for $3.25 million, ComicConnect, which brokered the sale, announced.  The price is a new record for a comic, the sixth such record held by ComicConnect.

ComicConnect has brokered the sale of this particular copy several times, beginning in 2010 at $1.5 million and most recently at $2,052,000 in 2018, according to the announcement.

This sale breaks the record price for a sale of a comic of $3,207,852, set at auction in 2014 for a 9.0 copy of the same issue, Action #1 (see "The First $3 Million Dollar Comic").  That copy is one of two known copies in that condition, the only known copies in better condition than the one sold this month.
