Nicolas Cage's rare Superman comic book recovered
Authorities in Los Angeles were searching Monday for the thief who stole an original copy of the first Superman comic book from actor Nicolas Cage more than a decade ago.
Action Comics No. 1 — a 1938 comic book now worth as much as $1.5 million — was taken from Cage's West Los Angeles home in 2000 and was discovered last month in a San Fernando Valley storage locker.
The first edition is being kept in an LAPD evidence safe while art detail detectives try to find the thief.
"We have it protected in a safe and it isn't going anywhere until we finish our investigation," Det. Donald Hrycyk said Monday.
