Nicolas Cage Just Wants His Stolen Comic Books Back

It’s no secret that Nicolas Cage is a big fan of comics. The iconic actor almost played Superman, played Ghost Rider, and even named his son Kal-El. Cage previously owned a bunch of high valued comics, including Action Comics # 1, which features the debut of Superman. In 2000, those comics were stolen from Cage’s home, but some were recovered in 2011. Cage then went on to sell Action Comics # 1 for a record $ 2.1 million. However, not all of the comics were recovered, including Cage’s copy of Detective Comics # 27. In fact, all these years later, Cage is still hoping his missing comics will be returned. The actor is currently promoting his new film, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talentand a new promo for the movie shows him pleading for his comics.

Cage was answering questions, including what actual treasure he could steal if he had the chance since his National Treasure character went after the Declaration of Independence. “I just want to get my comic books back,” Cage shared. “They were stolen, you know, I bought those books at a really good price and now they are treasures that are in the $ 10 million range. Someone has them in a treasure chest somewhere and I – please give them back, because I could do a lot with that. I could donate it to charity at this point. ” You can check out the video, which includes a fake hotline number, below:
