iHeartPodcasts Delves into the Wacky Mystery of Nicolas Cage’s Stolen Comic in “Stealing Superman”
WHAT: It was the most unlikely art heist of all time. At a 1999 New Year’s Eve party in actor Nicolas Cage’s palatial estate, the unthinkable happened: someone stole one of Cage’s most prized comic books, his priceless copy of Action Comics #1—the first appearance of Superman and the birth of the superhero genre. With police baffled and collectors shocked, the decade-plus story has fascinating twists and turns to rival some of Cage’s most epic movies. Listeners will unravel the story in the iHeartPodcast Original “Stealing Superman” and join host Dana Schwartz as she teams up with the country’s only art detective and one determined comic book dealer to investigate the mysterious theft of the most important comic in the world.
Billionaires, police stings, body doubles and a reformed art thief make for the ultimate pop culture mystery: Who stole Superman from under Cage’s nose?
