'Superman' comic worth $100K found in wall of abandoned home

David Gonzalez bought an abandoned home in Elbow Lake, Minn., for about $10,000, planning to remodel it. But he ended up getting more than he bargained for -- more than 10 times more. In the walls of the house, amid the newspapers used as insulation, Gonzalez found a copy of the Holy Grail of comic books: 1938's Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman.

He's auctioning it off, and the current bid is more than $113,000; the auction ends on June 11, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
