(Comic) Books on Film: The Check That Sold Superman
Yesterday, a piece of comics, nay, American history went on the auction block – the check DC Comics used to purchase the rights to Superman.
Part history lesson, park comic geek hyperbole, it’s hard not to like this video about the check that changed comics.
How much did the check go for? Six figures.
