BOSTON - Superman saves a family from going into foreclosure.

A family that would like to remain anonymous said they were about to lose their home when they found a classic comic book in their basement. Action Comics #1,introduced Superman, the man of steel, to the world in 1938. This is supposedly the most valuable comic ever printed.

The comic book could be worth up to $350,000.

The family was able to keep their home and should be putting the comic book up for sale next month.
