A copy of the 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, featuring Superman's debut, sold Monday for 1.5 million dollars on an auction website , again breaking a price record that has been broken twice this year already.

The issue is widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books, reports the Telegraph.

The same issue sold in February for 1 million dollars.

That price was bested just days later when a 1939 comic book featuring Batman's debut sold for 1 million dollars and change.

The issue that sold on Monday was bought from a private collector and then sold by Stephen Fishler and Vincent Zurzolo, the co-owners of ComicConnect.com.

Fishler refused to name the buyer but said he was 'a hard-core comic book fan.'
