Nicolas Cage was born Nicolas Kim Coppola and changed his name to Nicolas Cage, inspired by Marvel Comics’ Luke Cage. Cage also named his son Kal-el after Superman’s birth name. Nicolas Cage has always been a notorious collector of everything imaginable (not just comic books). However, his comic book collection was rumored to be one of the most valuable collections ever owned by a celebrity (let alone by any single person). We’re talking multiple #1s of the most famous comic book characters including Batman and Superman. The sale of his collection was said to be the highest reported amount for a comic book auction, with a total value of 5.2 million dollars.
Nicolas Cage recently created the Virgin Comics series, Voodoo Child, with his son Weston Cage. Now you can update your own collection with the Voodoo Child Limited Edition Hardcover book from our online store. Only 2000 were printed worldwide and few copies remain so act fast!
