NEW YORK (AP) — A rare copy of the first comic book featuring Superman has sold for $1 million, smashing a record set just last year.

Ever the noir crime spiral we keep going down until we exhaust the genre. this one is from the criminal’s perspective.

Coward is the story of Leo, a professional pickpocket who is also a legendary heist-planner and thief.  But there’s a catch with Leo, he won’t work any job that he doesn’t call all the shots on, he won’t allow guns, and the minute things turn south, he’s looking for any exit that won’t land him in prison. But when he’s lured into a risky heist, all his rules go out the window, and he ends up on the run from the cops and the bad men who double-crossed him.

Furry Freak Brothers.
