Nic Cage’s Copy of ‘Action Comics’ #1 Recovered, In Cage Fashion.

After a decade of being separated, Nic Cage has been reunited with his copy of Action Comics #1. Like every other story in the world surrounding this Living Deity, the story is full of madness, and a glorious quote by Cage himself.

Comics Alliance:

As the story goes, a man known only as “Sylvester” found the copy of Action Comics #1 in the contents of a storage locker he purchased. Sylvester made inquiries with Dan Dotson of American Auctioneers in Riverside, California, about 60 miles east of L.A. Dotson, who appears regularly on A&E’s Storage Wars, then contacted Mark Balelo, a collectibles expert who owns a merchandise liquidation company in Simi Valley, CA, about 40 miles outside downtown Los Angeles. Balelo then got in touch with New York-based rare comic book dealer Stephen Fisher of, who in fact sold Nicolas Cage the missing copy of Action Comics #1 more than a decade earlier. Fisher flew to California and identified the copy of Action Comics #1 as the very same item purchased from him by Nicolas Cage. The police agreed with Fisher’s conclusion, and the comic book was taken into evidence.

But wait, there’s more!

The whole truth is uncertain, as Sylvester, the man who claims to have purchased the contents of the locker, does not wish to be identified and, according to  The Los Angeles Times, his story is still being investigated by police detectives. Asked by  The Ventura County Star whether Sylvester is a suspect in the Cage robbery, Detective Donald Hrycyk of the LAPD’s two-person Art Theft Detail remarked, “I don’t know enough about it yet. I don’t want to prejudge anybody. It’s just too bad that Balelo with his big mouth thought it was necessary to contact the media.”

Speaking to  The Los Angeles Times, Hrycyk indicated that Sylvester claims he does not know the exact storage locker from which he retrieved the valuable comic book, which is obviously very dubious.

It sounds a lot to me like this Sylvester dude stole the fucking comic book, and then was all like, “Nic Cage clearly possesses shamanistic powers, and he will get to me if not now, at some point.

The deity Cage, speaks:

It is divine providence that the comic was found and I am hopeful that the heirloom will be returned to my family.
