Nicolas Cage Made $2 Million By Selling One Comic Book

Totally broke best overactor of his generation Nicolas Cage will do anything for money. Just look at his IMDb page. Sorcerer's Apprentice? Really? Well, now he sold off one of his comic books for $2.1 million.

Action Comics' first issue from 1938 is also the first appearance of Superman, and yesterday it fetched a record price at auction (why are things at auctions always fetching?). Cage bought the comic back in 1997 for $150,000, but it was stolen from his home in 2000. It turned up later in a storage locker someone fetched at auction (just like on Storage Wars!) and given back to Cage, who now made a hefty $2 million off the sale. We bet that's more than he made for hamming up Trespass.
