A copy of the 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1,featuring Superman’s debut,sold Monday for 1.5 million dollars on the auction website ComicConnect.com,again breaking a price record that has been broken twice this year already.

The issue is widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books,reports ‘The Telegraph.’ The same issue sold in February for 1 million dollars. That price was bested just days later when a 1939 comic book featuring Batman’s debut sold for 1 million dollars and change.

The issue that sold on Monday was bought from a private collector and then sold by Stephen Fishler and Vincent Zurzolo,the co-owners of ComicConnect.com. Fishler refused to name the buyer but said he was ‘a hard-core comic book fan.’
