Nicolas Cage’s Comic Books Stolen – The Actor Wants To Recover Them
Nicolas Cage is an actor with many ties to comic books and superhero movies. So far, he is the only actor who has played the Ghost Rider, but this has not been his only superhero-related role. If you’ve seen the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, you may have noticed that Cage voices Spider-Man Noir. Another actor’s approach to this world was with the project, Superman Lives, where he got to put on the Man of Steel’s suit, although the producers finally canceled it. Now Nicolas Cage reaffirms his love for superheroes by asking for his stolen comic books back.

Due to the film’s promotion, Cage has given some interviews, answering questions from fans through social media. In this particular interview, each of these answers has been a gem. We highly recommend you watch it. But undoubtedly, the best and the one we are most interested in here was the answer to a fan who asked him what he would like to steal most. Nicolas Cage replied that he would not want to steal anything, but he would like to recover his collection of stolen comic books.

On several occasions, the Hollywood star has stated that he is a huge comic book fan. He loves comics to a level he came to own a collection of very rare and valuable issues. In Cage’s, now lost collection was one of the most expensive issues globally, Action Comics #1, which saw the debut of Krypton’s most famous son, Superman. Unfortunately, an individual stole the prized comic book collection. According to Cage, it would be worth millions of dollars today. (This is not surprising given the price increase some titles are seeing in 2022).
The Actor Wants His Stolen Comics Back
So it was in that interview, that a fan asked the star about what item he would like to steal. He replied, “nothing.” He just wants to get back what was stolen from him: his prized comic book collection.
