When a Minnesota home remodeler decided to plunk down $10,100 for a fixer-upper to rehab, he just assumed it was a no-lose investment. Little did he know about the rare comic book he’d find stashed in the wall of the house.
While gutting the house one day, he stumbled upon an Action Comics #1 from 1938, which just happens to be the book that introduced a red-caped hero known as Superman.
“The most important comic book in the history of comic books,” writes ComicConnect, the online auction site where the Minnesota man’s find is now up for bid.
“I knew it was worth money,” the man tells the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “But I had no idea how much.”
Right now, the highest bid is more than $107,000. The value of the found comic book would probably have been even higher if the homeowner’s grabby in-laws hadn’t gotten their hands on it.
“They got all excited and tried to take it,” he says about the incident that resulted in a tear of the back cover. “I understand it’s something cool, but told them: ‘You don’t have to act so rude. I brought you in to show you, don’t grab it.’”
“That was a $75,000 tear,” the co-owner of ComicConnect explains to the Star-Tribune.
The auction continues until June 11. In the end, the homeowner will end up getting half of whatever the highest bid ends up being. Right now, that would still be more than five times what he paid for the house.
Abercrombie & Fitch is in hot water again, once more over claims that the company isn’t treating everyone equally. A federal judge in Denver is mulling over an injunction against Hollister, which is part of the A&F family. Earlier the federal judge had ruled that almost 250 Hollister stores are unfriendly to the disabled, because entry doors aren’t all easily accessible.
Several Colorado customers filed a lawsuit back in 2009 claiming they couldn’t easily get into retail locations, and that the sales countertops are too high, reports the Associated Press. One customer confined to a wheelchair said she’d tried to go to a Colorado Hollister, but had trouble getting through a side door because there wasn’t access to the front door.
After lawyers for the plaintiffs compared the situation of using separate doors to the fight for desegregation in the 1960s, Hollister’s attorneys called that reference “grossly inaccurate and needlessly inflammatory” and asked that it be stricken from court documents.
The plaintiff who had to use the side doors called it an embarrassing experience, saying today:
“As a person who has grown up with a disability who was excluded from many public and private buildings and experiences (including) school, dining, shopping, arguably because those buildings were built pre-ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), I am simply referencing an attitude of exclusion that was prevalent during that time,” she said.
The doors have labels of “Bettys” and “Dudes,” but Hollister’s claims that they’re accessible to the disabled are a sham, she says.
“The (side) entrances are artificial two steps up and two steps down, built to create an atmosphere for marketing purposes. That is what makes them illegal,” she said.
The judge would issue the injunction as a way to order the company to fix the situation by providing accessible entrances for the disabled. But Hollister’s team says it’d be too expensive to redo the entry doors, and force the retail locations to close for up to 10 days, causing a disruption in business, and a potential cost of $8 million.
Hollister and Abercrombie say it’s impossible to install ramps in shopping malls, and that shutting off elevated entrances would be “the worst and least acceptable” of the proffered solutions because consumers would be confused. And if they’re confused, they might not find their way into the stores.

Real estate experts weigh in on whether to buy an apartment while it is already occupied by a tenant and what to expect from such an arrangement. Investment opportunities, terms of lease, rent regulation, and the overall nature of the renter are all important things to consider before deciding to make a purchase.
A dangerous trend on the rise among teenagers in the U.S. is the use of "study drugs" -- a prescription stimulant or amphetamine -- to cram for exams. But a new study released May 20 shows that most parents aren't paying attention.
