New York comics dealers Stephen Fishler and Vincent Zurzolo said Monday they submitted Sunday's record-setting bid in the eBay auction for Action Comics No. 1. That's the 1938 book in which the superhero first appeared.

EBay confirmed the price but hasn't disclosed the buyer's name. Seller Darren Adams is a collectibles dealer in Federal Way, Washington.

Fishler and Zurzolo own ComicConnect.com. It auctioned a high-quality copy of the book in 2011 for a then-record $2.1 million.

About 100 copies are believed to exist. Fishler doesn't have plans for his pricey copy, but he says the opportunity was too good to miss.
