In 2000 Nicolas Cage reported to police that his Action Comics #1 had been stolen and today we have learned that the comic after 11 years was discovered in a storage locker in Los Angeles.
Police spent a long time looking for the comic book valued at more than $1.5 million. Action Comics #1 is a 1938 comic that features the first appearance of Superman and is considered one of the most sought after comic books of all time.
In 2000 Cage reported the stolen comic to his insurer and collected an undisclosed sum of money. Police say Cage is not a suspect in the hiding of the book.
The comic book will now be handed over to the insurance company, however it’s still unclear if Cage will collect extra money from the discovery.
