Batman V Superman And The Impossible Collection In London On Wednesday – With The Highest Quality Action Comics #1 Known to Exist

On Wednesday, I am going to see Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.


I am expecting great things. But first I have my own "versus" battles to choose.


Which of the Real 3D glasses will I take with me?


Which of the Compare The Market Batman V Superman meerkats will join me on my journey?

As seen on this ad…

And will I find time to pop down to Zach Snyder's signing at Forbidden Planet…


…where I could get this volume Batman v Superman  Dawn Of Justice: The Art Of The Film Superhero Edition signed by Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Godot.

Or I could say hang it all (or go late) the private viewing of the Impossible Collection (DC Chapter)  that night, billed as the world's most extensive anthology of rare, original comic books, publicly showcased for the very first time. A previously unexhibited, unannounced single-owner collection of over 1,000 original and rare comic books, collected together over 16 years.

These include the highest graded copy in existence of Action Comics #1 featuring the first appearance of Superman that has rarely changed hands since its publication in 1938 and has perfect-white pages thanks to its original owner storing it in a cedar chest in the mountains of West Virginia.

As well as copies of Detective Comics #27 with the first appearance of Batman from May of 1939,, Superman #1 from 1939, Batman #1 (the first appearance of Joker and Catwoman from 1940) and Showcase #4 (the first appearance of the silver age Flash from 1956).and first runs of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman amongst others; all in superb condition.

The exhibit will also contain original artwork spanning the Golden, Silver and Bronze ages of comics.

I expect some interesting folk may be attending…


The Impossible Collection will be on private display at London's St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel and is set to embark on a global tour starting in London later this year.
