A comic book collection that includes some of the most prized issues ever published is expected to fetch more than $2 million at auction in the United States this week.
The 345 comics that Billy Wright collected in his youth and preserved until his death in 1994 will be put to auction in New York on Wednesday.
Michael Rorrer says he found his great uncle's collection while helping clean out his great aunt's home following her death last February.
The collection includes 44 of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide's top 100 issues from the golden age of comic books.
Among the notable issues are Action Comics No. 1, in which Superman debuted, Detectives Comics No. 27, in which Batman debuted, and Captain America No. 2, which features Adolf Hitler.
