So, how is this article related to technology or PC gaming in any way or form?? Don't get me wrong. I am a comic book collector and fan, but just don't understand why this article is posted on the maximumpc.com website...just saying!

The online digital copy is amazing. It's great that the owner of this historical treasure has had the whole thing scanned - the digital copy will remain pristine forever, and being online, is accessible to the wider public, as it should be.

Of course, it's not a great comic, in absolute terms... most of the issue is non-Superman content of marginal interest, about half of it black and white. But it really does look fantastic, as if it had been printed just yesterday. It's a unique opportunity to time travel back to the pop culture of the 1930s.

If I had $2 million to spare... actually, I'd spend it on something far less frivolous.

How is this remotely related to PCs?

Loosely, because it's an eBay auction, and you can view a digital copy of the comic online. But the real reason it's posted here is because a lot of PC users are also into comics. While rare, if a side-story is interesting enough -- like auctionining off a multi-million dollar comic book -- we'll post it.

We've also posted picture galleries from Comic-Con and other geek-related conventions in the past, and will likely do so in the future as well. Rest assured, however, our main focus remains on PCs.
