Nicolas Cage just wants his stolen comics back
It’s no secret that Nicolas Cage is a big fan of comics. The iconic actor almost played Superman, played Ghost Rider, and even named his son Kal-El. Cage previously owned a bunch of high-value comics, including Action comics #1, which features Superman’s debut. In 2000, these comics were stolen from Cage’s home, but some were recovered in 2011. Cage later sold Action comics #1 for a record $2.1 million. However, not all of the comics have been picked up, including Cage’s copy of Detective comic #27. In fact, all these years later, Cage is still hoping that his missing comics will be returned to him. The actor is currently promoting his new film, The unbearable weight of massive talentand a new promo for the film shows him pleading for his comics.
Cage was answering questions from fans, including what real treasure he could steal if he had the chance since his national treasure character went after the declaration of independence. “I just want my comics back,” Cage explained. “They were stolen, you know, I bought those books at a really good price and now they’re like 10 million dollar treasures. Someone has them in a treasure chest somewhere and I – s please return them, because I could do a lot with this. I could donate them to charity at this point.
