Don’t be so quick to throw away those old comics of yours!
Comic book collector Mike Wheat poses with a book showing the cover of Batman No. 1 in front of boxes containing tens of thousands of comic books at his Fairbanks, Alaska home. Wheat has put his copy of the 1940 Batman No. 1 on the auction block through Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries, where it’s expected to fetch more than $40,000.
