Rare, pricey comic book saves foreclosed home

LOS ANGELES While they were moving out, they found a rare comic book in their basement.

It turned out to be a copy of Action Comics No. 1 which introduced Superman to the world back in 1938.

The comic book is expected to sell for a quarter million dollars at an online auction Aug. 27.

The family lives in the south and wants to remain anonymous.

The bank has agreed to allow them to stay in their home until it receives the money from the auction.
